About Claire Rackstraw
We started to go on holiday in France more and more for the food, drink, countryside and beaches. We then fell in love Bon Courage as an idyllic get away and we hope you do too.
Claire Rackstraw purchased this Farmhouse in 2015

Coast/Beach: Either a drive north about 60km through beautiful countryside and villages to the wide expanses of the Normandy landing beaches, or West 50km to the coast facing the channel islands, or another 30km further west/south west to the unmissable Mont Saint-Michel and thence the beaches of Brittany. This is a good central location for exploring a few different beaches and coasts. Travel: Eurotunnel/Calais - 250 miles approx 4 hours Caen (Ouistreham) - 50 miles approx 1 hour Cherbourg - 80 miles approx 1 3/4 hours Le Havre - 90 miles approx 2 hours St. Malo - 80 miles approx 1 3/4 hours Dieppe - 140 miles approx 2 1/2 hours Distances: Bon Courage, Avilly, is located in PIERRES, which is situated in Southern Calvados (in the heart of rural Normandy). The closest large town is VIRE at approximately 8 miles and VASSY is the nearest village at about 3 miles. Further Details: Local Information & Activities Situated in Southern Calvados, Bon Courage gives ample opportunities for those who wish to explore the rich history of the region, which also offers plenty of leisure activities, such as hiking, canoeing/kayaking, golf, equestrian and bike riding. Following are a few examples: Historical & Cultural Visits World War II History Family Outings Sports Mont Saint Michel Undoubtedly this site is one of the most spectacular jewels of France. Its rich history makes a visit to the Mont St. Michel an unforgettable experience. A guided tour is highly recommended, as this will give an excellent and detailed insight of the historical, religious and ‘powerful’ importance of this venue during the French history. The views of and from the Mont St. Michel are stunning. Bayeux Tapestry A visit to the Bayeux Tapestry Museum is a must and impressive. The history and events of the Battle of Hastings and the Norman invasion in 1066 is portrayed on a 270 feet long tapestry. The woven details of this historical event pictured on the embroidery are well preserved, considering its age and are breathtaking. Given that this museum is quite popular and in order to avoid long queues an early start is recommended. William the Conqueror’s Castle ( Falaise Castle) This is a real gem and a castle worthy of a day’s visit, this castle dominates the town of Falaise and is very impressive. The castle has ongoing restoration to its walls and one can well picture William being born there and growing up as a child. Another great venue to see and enjoy, the tour is mostly inside and undercover with a different way of showing a castle using art, lights and sound to make this a magical visit.
