2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, peaceful & quiet, near Bayeux, near beaches
In a peaceful corner of Normandy, this south-facing, detached stone holiday cottage overlooks a wooded valley and stream. The building cleverly combines French rural character with modern comforts including *free WiFi*. The château town of Balleroy is nearby and has most facilities including a five star gastronomic restaurant, while a half an hour drive takes you to Bayeux with its famous tapestry, beautiful cathedral, museums and restaurants. The coast, with its fishing ports and miles of sandy beaches, is just ½ hour by car, while Caen (45mins), offers everything you would expect from the regional capital, including excellent shopping.
Seafood and dairy food are the specialities here and there are many fine restaurants in the area. Balleroy also has two bars, a supermarket and two boulangeries where you can buy bread, croissants and delicious cakes. In the surrounding countryside are pretty villages, forests, a lakeside leisure centre and wonderful opportunities for walking or cycling, starting on your own doorstep.
The cottage offers an excellent base for those wishing to explore the D-Day beaches and the many war museums, including those at Arromanches, Bayeux and the renowned Peace Museum at Caen. Mont St Michel is only 1½ hours drive away, and should you fancy a day in Paris, a regular train service runs from Bayeux taking only 2 hours.
The local English caretakers are happy to answer questions about the area - from the best places to eat to buying a house! - but are equally happy to respect your privacy. You will find lots of information in the gite to help you plan your holiday, including up-to-date leaflets on places to go and things to see.
