Make A Holiday Rental Cottage in Vire, France, Your Home Away From Home

Holidays in Vire, France, are most suited to those Francophiles who have a grasp of the French language, and would like to get to know ‘middle France’ a little bit better. If you are after late night parties in a Mediterranean atmosphere, then this is not really the place for you! Self catering accommodation in Vire is all about getting a feel for living in the French countryside. Well equipped, cleaned and maintained, rental accommodation in this part of France takes the form of a cottage or gite, although if you choose to stay in the town itself, then an apartment would be more likely.

Things to Do on Holiday in Vire, France

Vire has developed quite a reputation as a culinary destination. So much so in fact, that it can be difficult finding things to do whilst not eating! However, there is a great tourist information centre that can provide leaflets and inside knowledge as to some of the best walks in the area. In addition, if your self catering accommodation in Vire has bicycles included, then you will be able to spend some lovely time cycling through the French countryside, stumbling across the odd tiny village or settlement along the way.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Vire, France

Vire suffered heavy bombing during the last part of the Second World War, and so historical buildings are a bit thin on the ground. A few do remain, and are worth a visit. These are a 13th century medieval gateway which has an accompanying 15th century clock-tower, and the Vire Church of Notre Dame with its Gothic styling. The tourist information centre in the town will be able to point more historical areas out. Whilst on holidays in Vire, France, it is obligatory to try Andouille sausages. These are a speciality to the area, and it is highly likely that if you are eating out, you will end up trying these more than once!

Weather in Vire, France

Being located in Normandy, Vire has a generally warm climate, although top summer temperatures normally peak at around the 25 degrees Celsius mark, as opposed to the much higher temperatures seen in other parts of France. The area is very green, which of course, is a good sign that it does rain here! That said, the sunny days easily outweigh the rainy ones, and on average there are only 8 days of rain a month. As most of these occur during the winter period, it will not affect most holiday makers. Winter temperatures have an average low of 2 degrees, although this can be variable, as indeed most of the world’s weather can be nowadays!

Travel to Vire, France

Travel to Vire in Normandy can be done in a couple of ways. Some people from the United Kingdom decide that driving over is the best idea, as this means that they then have a car that they can use whilst on holidays in Vire. The best route to use would be Portsmouth to Caen on the ferry. For others, it is easier to simply take a flight. Dinard (DNR) would be a good choice of airport to land at. Ryanair operates services from East Midlands (EMA) and London Stansted (STN).

                                                                                                      5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt as though we had slipped from our hectic lives in the UK into bliss! Our hosts were incredible and couldn't have been more helpful offering local knowledge, wine and wood for our fire! Their dog, Azure, wandered in and out making us feel more as though we were part of a family rather than tourists. The accommodation is stunning; warm and rustic, offering all the comforts of home yet maintaining all the charm that rural France promises. We wandered down to the river each morning and fed the horses at lunchtime then walked down the lane in the afternoon, I can't tell you how much of an antidote this place is to the the stresses and strains of life in the UK! There is a Carrefore within 10 minutes drive, the beaches are close by and the countryside is right on your doorstep. What more could a holiday offer? We have already booked to go back.

                                                                                                      We have holidayed in cottages/gites several times in France and done similar in Italy, the USA and at home in the UK. In France we've found a huge variation in the comfort and quality of holiday rental accommodation. We've come to the conclusion that English-owned properties are often better (or at least better suited to us). This is particularly the case when the owner uses the property themselves So it proved with Les Challonnières. This place is brilliantly well furnished and equipped with nothing left wanting. There are super comfy and large sofas in a spacious lounge with a glorious fireplace. The kitchen has every pot, pan and gadget you can think of. The pictures on this site are a fair representation of how the property looks. The bedrooms are smallish (they have been created in the roof space with dormer windows) and the main is unusually accessed through a very low doorway over 3 steps to get over the roof beams. There is an ensuite shower room which is small but nice. There are two sofabeds on the mezzanine outside the main bedroom, The other proper bedroom is access by its own staircase from behind the kitchen. Kids will probably love the idea of benig in their own space. There is a 2nd large bathroom on the ground floor with bath. The front gardens are shown in the pictures and we spent quite a lot of time relaxing there. The gardens front on to a small single track lane, but there is hardly any traffic and only one neighbour. The main road 1/4 miles away can be heard a little but it doesn't spoil relaxation. There is also a large back garden which I don't think is shown in the pictures. This is surrounded by woods and is again very peaceful. We couldn't have been happier with the cottage and hope to return. The area does not have much on the doorstep in terms of towns to visit/things to do unless you make your own fun with walking/bikes. But one can travel a little further and find enough to enjoy. This worked for us as ours was a short trip and we did not want to travel further from the port on this occasion (atypical of our French trips). Lonlay-l'Abbaye is very close, small but pretty. Domfront is worth a short wander. The church in the centre of the old town is a real surprise. Also consider Lassay-les-Châteaux (a bit further) if going that way. We also visited Bagnoles-de-l'Orne on market day which was not really our cup of tea, but check it out on Streetview if interested to get an idea.
