CONVERTED BARN AND FARMHOUSE AVAILABLE COMBINED, OR RENTED SEPARATELY

Saint-James Barn Rental Photos and Description

(Converted Barn and Farmhouse available Combined, or Rented Separately)

These properties, which are of a traditional local stone construction, are adjoined. Originally a farmhouse and barn, they were converted and renovated to living accommodation of a very high standard. The thumbnail photographs above show a mixture of both properties. Placing the cursor on any picture will display an explanatory caption. This commences with the Gite whose page you are in (the rental property), followed by the property shown in the photograph.

St. James is a thriving market town, with many local amenities. Free use of the internet is available in the town. St. James has the second largest American Cemetery in France, from the Second World War. There is a good selection of shops, bars, places to eat out. There are also three larger supermarkets.

St. James has doctors, dentists, a hospital, bank. Our favourite eating places, within easy walking distance, include 'Le Lion D'or' & 'Hotel Normandie'. Children are made welcome and we heartily recommend both. On Mondays it is market day in St. James. It starts early in the morning and packs up around midday. Hot food is available. There is a tourist office in the town.

The best beaches are 35-40 minutes away. Our favourite is Carroles, which is clean and safe with Lifeguards. The beaches are all sand, with a gradual slope into the sea. There are toilets available, car parking and several eating places on the sea front.

One of the most popular attractions, in France, is Mont St. Michel. This is a must to visit and is less than 45 minutes away but should be visited early in the morning before the crowds arrive.. It is very advisable to visit early in the day, to avoid tourist peak time.

The Brittany coastline is within one hour away and its rugged grandeur is a dramatic contrast to the Normandy beaches. The granite Rose Coast is particularly spectacular with its weather eroded stone shapes.

The D Day Landing Beaches from World War Two, The Mulberry Harbour at Arromanches and the famous Bayeux Tapestry are only 90 minutes away.

Anita and I have holidayed in France on many occasions. Our gites are on the Brittany/Normandy border and we thought this was ideal to explore the two areas of France that we particularly enjoy.

They are ideally situated on the very edge of town, just a 3-4 minute stroll to the centre.

These gites are ideally situated on a quiet one way street just a 3-4 minute stroll to the centre of town with its bars, shops & restaurants.

The rear of these properties faces out over a wooded valley and is normally serene & peaceful.

Car: recommended

St James is a thriving market town with many local amenities. The town is on the Normandy/Brittany border close to Mont St Michel. The D Day landing beaches and Bayeux with its famous tapestry, are well within reach. The road infrastructure is excellent and the motorway system passes within one mile of our property.

There are a number of beautiful beaches, a short drive away. All of these beaches are sandy, and gradually sloped. In Normandy you will find sand dunes. In Brittany the beaches are more picturesque. The rugged Granite Rose Coast is particularly spectacular, with its weather eroded stone shapes.

The gite is situated in a very quiet one way street, on the very edge of the town, Saint James. The rear of the property looks out across a wooded valley. The centre with its shops, restaurants and bars are only a short 5 minute stroll.
