Make a holiday rental, apartment or villa in Manche, Normandy your home away from home

Manche, a region of Normandy in the North of France, is surrounded on three sides by the English Channel, boasting 350km of coastline. However, beside Manche’s maritime excellence, taking a villa in Manche, Normandy allows you the flexibility, freedom and space to enjoy discovering the wealth of hugely important historical sites, especially from WW II, and indulge in the hearty, rustic cuisine and sensational cider of Normandy.

Places to holiday in Manche, Normandy, France

Manche is divided into three areas, the Cotentin Peninsula, Bocage area and the Western Coast. The Cotentin Peninsula, or Cherbourg Peninsula is a fairly remote region, bar the port town of Cherbourg. It did however play a strong role in WW II, and houses the Musee de la Garre et de la Liberation.

A Manche holiday rental in Coutances, Normandy’s capital, will ensure you some of the best scenery in northern France. Coutances is the prettiest town in Normandy, centred around the 11th Century cathedral at the heart of the city.

The western coast is lined with some magnificent beaches, and the jewel in the crown of Manche is the spectacular Mont St Michel, which attracts many thousands of tourists, and for good reason. The architectural marvel at Mont St Michel is surrounded by fantastic beaches, filled with sunbathers, swimmers, people playing tennis and football and many small boats and yachts.

Things to do on holiday in Manche, Normandy, France

Manche is a very natural environment, with agriculture supporting the local economy. Holidaymakers taking accommodation here, from a Manche barn to a rental villa, will undoubtedly be impressed and inspired by the natural way of life. There is nowhere better than Manche to walk or bicycle through the countryside and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells. The marked tracks of the Cotentin and Bessin Marshlands Regional Park are hard to beat for fresh air and relaxing scenery.

Taking a self catering Manche villa is not a good idea for those looking to loose weight! Most dishes are made with the much sought-after butter of Sainte-Mere-Eglise, Cotentin oysters, salt lamb of Mont St Michel or famous Normandy beef, all washed down with some of the regions delicious cider.

Weather in Manche, Normandy, France

Extremely comfortable, well equipped and peaceful

5 of 5
We've stayed at La Belle Grange several times now at different times of the year and back again this summer. We love it ! It's a truly relaxing setting, with well appointed, stylish and generous accommodation in a wonderful setting. A perfect venue to take in as much or as little as you choose of the area's many attractions, delightful food, culture and countryside. Highly recommended, private, perfect for enjoying alfresco dining or equally a stunning sunrise.

Wonderful stay

5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the gite in Carolles. It was clean, well equipped and perfect for the family. My boys enjoyed the large garden and the location being a few minutes from the beach was simply superb. We had a very relaxing and hassle free week. Very highly recommended!! Dr Shafiq Madina
