Guestbook comments from the manager

On a passé un chouette séjour et on a aimé le mélange de déco moderne et plus traditionnel. On s'est sentis comme chez nous avec une maison chaleureuse et bien fichue.

C'est vraiment chouette d'être directement sur le port tout prêt de la plage et des restaurants.

On se sent ressourcés et conseillons cette maison pour 2 ou trois familles ou une bande de copains.


On espére revenir l'année prochaine.

A fantastic holiday rental

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for a number of years with a family group of 12 ranging from 4 to 84. We all love it, beaches, shops, restaurants etc.are within walking distance and the harbour is the other side of the road. The house is spotless, well appointed, spacious and a place where you would happily live. The agents are readily available to answer any queries and give advice. We cannot speak highly enough of both the house and Barfleur.

70th birthday celebration.

  • 4 of 5

With family and friends from Guernsey, England and Normandie this was the perfect location. We were very happy with the comfort, cleanliness and facilities and as serious food lovers we were impressed with the kitchen equipment and tools. The simple, homely decor and furnishings give the house a lovely warm, lived-in athmoshere and our agent was extrememly helpful and obliging.

Barfleur and its environs are a delight. Our six year old granddaughter loved the beaches and the carousel/merry-go-round and we loved the abundance of fresh fish and the visting market. Even the ill-fated ( it rained all day) "vide greniere" was great entertainment.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Le Barfleuraise to friends and would like to use it again when we are next in the area.

Tolles Haus, toller Ort, tolle Menschen

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im Oktober in Barfleur in diesem Haus. Die Beschreibung hier auf dieser Seite verspricht nicht zu viel, im Gegenteil. Alles ist vorhanden, liebevoll eingerichtet und die Betreuung vor Ort ist lässt keine Wünsche übrig. Barfleur ist ein urgemütlicher Fischerort und es gibt genügend Möglichkeiten, die Umgebung zu erkunden. Auch ist es sehr bequem, dass das Haus so zentral liegt, dass man alles zu Fuß erreichen kann, incl. Strand. Wir haben die Zeit genossen und würden, bzw. haben es schon weiter empfohlen.

Barfleur is a charming fishing harbour full of history one of the most famous event beeing William the Conqueror leaving from here in 1066.

You will be able to enjoy the 'French way of life', as you can do your shopping on foot, buy your fish straight from the boat just across the quay (10 yards), appreciate food and drinks from Le Café de France 2 doorsteps away or other Cafés and restaurants, take a stroll along the harbour, have several invigorating swims a day as the beach is only 1 minute walk from the house. Barfleur being in the Cotentin peninsula, it has a similar micro-climate to The Channel Islands which gives mild temperatures ,exotic and lush vegetation.

The preserved coastline offers a wide range of habitats and is kingdom to Nature lovers. There also are varied types of beaches: sandy beaches, rock pools, creeks, dunes...

Barfleur is ideally spotted to discover the rest of the area: historical sites such as the Normandy Landing Beaches, Le Mont Saint Michel, Bayeux Tapestry but also the Natural Park des Marais du Cortentin, the aquariums of Cherbourg.
