Apartment in Carteret, Normandy, France In The Heart Of Town With Unlimited Free Parking, 5 Minutes Walk To Blue Flag Beaches

Our recently built duplex apartment, right in the heart of Carteret, is the height of luxury. It has 2 en-suite bedrooms, underfloor heating, 3 balconies and electric shutters on all large windows. With it's porthole style windows and wooden-decked balconies the apartment has been designed with the feel of a transatlantic passenger liner, and has been equipped with the highest quality, modern furnishings. And don't forget the sea view! Across the road is a wonderful boulangerie where you can buy baguettes and your morning croissaints only minutes after coming out of the oven. Next door is an epicerie with an Aladdin's cave full of quality French produce. Top class restaurants, such as La Marine, are also right on your doorstep. The clean sandy beach is only 5 minutes walk away with plenty of space for everyone. A weekly market takes place just 100m away. Then you have the 1930s tourist train, marina and trips to Jersey. Just park the car and forget it for the week!

About Darrell and Susan

Hello, we are Susan and Darrell, originally from Poole in Dorset. We have have been working for ourselves nearly all of our married life, from running shops to selling food produce at County Fairs. With our holiday property we get to meet some lovely people and offer you an outstanding service so that you will come back again and again.

Darrell and Susan purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Darrell and Susan chose Cherbourg area

The Cherbourg Peninsular is an area often overlooked by those looking for a holiday in France. This is a shame as it has many miles of unspoilt beaches along it's coast with the sea warmed by the Gulf Stream. You will find the roads in the area quiet, parking abundant and free. Carteret is perfectly positioned as it is only 30 minutes drive from the ferry port, yet close to many Normandy attractions. The town is relaxed and safe, with enough shops and restaurants to keep everybody happy without being too commercial. With it's own beach, ferry port for Jersey and tourist train, Carteret is your absolutely ideal holiday spot.

What makes this apartment unique

you will love the position of the apartment, being able to walk across the street for your morning croissants, or stroll to one of the outstanding restaurants. To the front of the apartment is a lovely promenade to stroll along, or you can watch the tide come in from the South-facing balconies. The main balcony is sunny all day long, but it is only 5 minutes walk to the beach. Inside the apartment you have everything you need. Both bedrooms are en-suite and, as the apartment is a duplex, the apartment has a spacious feel about it. All bed linen and furniture is of the highest quality with plenty of towels provided for each guest. With our password secure internet connection you can keep in contact with the outside world if you wish.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"This well located and appointed apartment is ideal for a touring holiday within the region. Is within close proximity to excellent restaurants, shops, market, beaches and being in the centre of Carteret next to the harbour adds to its charm. The owners met us upon arrival to ensure that we had all the essentials and went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one. The apartment has all modern appliances and amenities." Penny and Mike from Canada.

"We thoroughly recommend this apartment. It was in an excellent location above the main street in Carteret (but still quiet at night) with a sea view from the balcony. The flat was spacious, clean, modern, stylish and well-furnished with a well-equipped kitchen and great bathrooms. The owners were welcoming and friendly and there are lots of nice touches in the apartment. We'd recommend it to friends and love to return." Geoff and Mary Brown

Luxury Apartment, 3 Sunny Balconies, Separate Fitted Kitchen, En Suite Bedrooms
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

Comfortable, well-equiped, tastefully-decorated.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very comfortable stay in this impeccable apartment. We enjoyed the space, light and balconies. The quality of the furniture and decoration was a definite asset when the weather was not too good. The location is perfect when one does not wish to drive to shops. The little shopping street offers a good choice of quality goods. We also enjoyed the local restaurants. Carteret is a convenient starting point to explore the Cotentin peninsula.

Susan and Darrell were most welcoming and helpful.

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this excellent apartment during the first week of August 2014. The apartment was spotless on arrival and the owners couldn't have been more helpful (including helping us carry our luggage from car to apartment). Very spacious, with everything we could have wanted or needed supplied. Carteret is a fabulous village/town and the apartment is at the centre of things (restaurants on your doorstep and a 5 minutes walk to the beach). We did wonder if this would mean it was noisy at night but this wasn't a problem at all. Similarly, we were a little concerned about parking but there is lots of free parking within 50 meters or so and we always found a convenient space. I wouldn't hesitate to go back to both the apartment and Carteret.
