Things to do

The things to do in this area are second to none and you may find yourself having to choose between certain activities if you only have a short stay booked in your Vire holiday cottage. Depending on how energetic you are feeling you can explore the local area on foot or by bicycle. If driving is more your style why not visit some of the areas listed below to get the most out of your French holiday experience.

-Explore Vire to uncover its stories which involve battles with the English, contention with the church, struggles of the Industrial Revolution and its part in World War II. There are ruined castles and fortifications, monuments, churches and other interesting architecture to enjoy.

-Visit Conde Sur Noireau to let the kids play at an indoor pool with water slides. Just a short drive from Vire, this destination will have the whole family cooling off in the hot summer months.

-The D-Day beaches are about 75kms from Vire. Many decades have passed since the 1944 D-Day offensive and the beaches are now peaceful and serene, offering lovely places to spend time sunbathing, swimming and walking on day trips from holiday homes in Vire. You should wander the coast that holds many mementos of this time. Battlements, bunkers and monuments are everywhere and it is well worth stopping to see many of them. Museums are in every town and the anniversary of June 6 is a particularly moving time to visit. Pretty cemeteries dot the landscape also, many of them overlooking the sea.

-Caen is a must-visit. The city is packed with more history than you can imagine. Caen Castle will have you stepping back into medieval times. Now the site of the Fine Arts Museum and the Normandy Museum, you could easily spend many hours here exploring the restored buildings. Pick up a free pass at the Caen Tourist Office which will give you discounts off food and attractions in the local area too. You can take a free, interactive tour of Caen. If you have a mobile device you can download an app that will give you a free guided tour of the city. At certain points you are required to take a photograph of a special code that will allow you to hear audio commentary about that item. Learn all about William the Conqueror (he is buried here) in your own time and at your own pace.

-Golf courses are plentiful in the area around Vire. Why not bring your clubs (or rent a set) and challenge your fellow holiday-makers to a round. If you plan to overindulge on the fine local food and wines, and of course, calvados during your break, golf can be a great way to sneak in a little exercise.

The weather in Vire

the climate of Normandy is not so very different to that of the south of England. July and August are the warmest times of the year in the Vire area. August is particularly popular for booking holiday villas in Vire when high temperatures of around 24 degrees Celsius can be expected.

The stylish spacious layout, well equipped kitchen, large (and warm) shower room, comfortable bedroom, very good lighting and warm welcome from Madame Deslandes make this gite one of the best. Un sejour tres agreable. Le gite a tout comfort avec un grand salon et une cuisine tres bien amenagee, et grandes fenetres qui sont parfaits pour regarder le paysage bucolique. Ce gite est ideal si vous voulez un gite de luxe, un endoit tranquille et un acceuil super chalereux

A very highly reccommended place to stay.
