Holiday Gite in Normandy

I own a holiday cottage in France which is available to let. Located in the beautiful Normandy countryside and ideal for touring the Normandy D-Day beaches.

There are plenty of opportunities to entertain young ones. The area is flat and ideal for cycling into Carentan or to the local patisserie. There is a new indoor swimming pool in Carentan town center which has been highly recommended by other visitors and is open all year and of course there are the famous beaches. Omaha beach is only half an hour away, the beach front has a crazy golf course and a cafe with outdoor seating.

How to get there: The easiest route from the UK is departing from Portsmouth or Poole in the UK to arrive at Cherbourg or Caen (Ouistreham) in France. I would recommend Brittany Ferries for all ferry crossings. Tickets can be booked easily on the Brittany Ferries web site. There is often a discount for early bookings.

The best drive to take is then along the N13 to Carentan. From Cherbourg the drive is less than an hour. From Caen, it takes just under one and a half hours.
