* Granville :

Located in the region of Lower Normandy, near the Bay of Mont Saint Michel, « The Monaco of the North » is a popular seaside resort. First inhabited by Vikings Granville was in the Middle Ages a fortress built in order to protect the Mont Saint Michel. During the Renaissance inhabitants used to leave to go fishing for cod in the waters of Newfoundland, but the activity ceased in the early 1930s. The resort became very well known in 1925 when a train station was built, allowing tourists from all over France to come and visit its wonderful beaches. This is still the case today, with nearly 10,000 visitors each year.

This mythical town, popular during the Roaring Twenties, is also the birthplace of the famous designer Christian Dior and his family owned a house in Granville. The house has since then been developed into a magnificent museum which can be visited throughout the year.

A Truly Beautiful and Spacious House

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy to have found this wonderful house near Granville. It is in the country and very convenient by car to Granville and St. Pair. The house is beautifully furnished and the kitchen is very well equipped. There are roses outside the kitchen window and beautiful gardens in the front courtyard area. Across the street is a field with lovely round hay bales. My children were incredibly happy with ping pong, chess and very comfortable couches to do their reading. In fact, the children did not want to leave the house to continue our travels. The house has two full bathrooms and wifi, which are always appreciated when traveling as a family. The hosts are incredibly kind. The house was immaculate when we arrived. I highly recommend this delightful house!
