  • Right in the heart of it all.

    "This apartment was right in the middle of a residential/shopping area literally 2 blocks from the Chatalet/Les Halles Metro station. These stations have EVERY line run through them making them a hub for getting to and from anywhere in Paris a breeze. This includes the RER B line which runs from Orly or CDG right into the heart of Paris with no train change! There are 2 grocery stores around the corner (Carrefour and Monop), which is very convenient (note: alcohol is not sold after 9PM...plan accordingly). The apartment gets a lot of noise from the boisterous revelers in the bars and night clubs that are in the immediate streets surrounding the apartment, particularly when they let out at closing time. Bring ear plugs if this bothers you. The property was clean and well maintained (albeit in a gentle state of gentle use) and provides wifi. Sheets/pillows/towels all provided and of good quality. The property manager (Jean-Noel) was available by email and responded quickly to queries (remember the time difference 9 hours ahead from PST; 6 from EST). The lease signing and paypal payment went well. We sent photos of our passports as jpegs...went fine. Anticipating the return of my security deposit (also via paypal). The check in is at 2PM. The only snafu we ran into is that I received an email (during my transatlantic flight) telling me that I could check in at 10 A; did not get that until I checked my email IN the apartment but the manager came straight away after we called and he let us in at the appointed check in time (230p). I will warn that the water pressure is not very good. Showers had to be taken one at a time (in the different bathrooms). One of the WC is in the kitchen (!), which seems odd but maybe its location has more to do with the plumbing than anything else. Washer (no dryer but a fan and a drying rack), dishwasher (used it as drying rack), oven and stove, microwave, fridge/freezer lots of basic kitchen battery. 3 different coffee makers (plunge, drip, nespresso style...did not work) and a hot water kettle. Lots of serving platters, china, glasses, cutlery etc. It would be helpful to know when garbage day is so that we could take it out. My companions and I really enjoyed the apartment apart from the water pressure (which we now laugh about). I would definitely keep this apartment of my list of potentials (I have rented one other apartment in St Germain which did NOT have this level of Metro service)."

  • Ein Schmuckstück von Anwesen

    "Schon gleich bei der Ankunft hatten wir das tolle Gefühl, mit der Wahl unseres Ferienhauses alles richtig gemacht zu haben. "La perle de la baie" ist wirklich ein Schmuckstück..!!! Die einzigartige, absolut ruhige Lage, der traumhafte Blick aufs Meer, der wunderschön angelegte Garten, die sehr gute Ausstattung des Hauses - all das hat dazu beigetragen, dass wir uns in diesen zwei Wochen blendend erholt haben. Wir hätten es hier auch noch ein bißchen länger ausgehalten... Juli 2014, Birgit + Roland, Nürtingen"

  • Великолепно!!!!

    "Я приезжаю в Ниццу каждое лето последние 10 лет и это одни из лучших апартаментов, в которых я останавливалась! Здесь есть всё для комфортного проживания, кухня оборудована всем необходимым и очень важно, что она находится отдельно от других комнат и в ней много места. Вид с балкона просто потрясающий! Утром, открыв окно, вы наслаждаетесь видом моря! И особенно хочу отметить и поблагодарить хозяйку апартаментов Линду, которая организовала весь прием великолепно! У нас не было вопросов, на которые не было ответов. Всё было очень быстро и чётко организовано. И её помощницу Лоретту, которая была быстрая и ловкая как супервуман и решала все вопросы, которые были!!! Спасибо!!! В следующий раз я выбираю только эти апартаменты!!!"

  • Great location!

    "This was an ideal location to get to the metro and the RER. The apartment was great for two couples since both of us had bedrooms and private bathrooms. The stairwell leaves a lot to be desired. It could use some repairs and updating and 98 stairs were a challenge. However we got our exercise! The apartment was very nice and adequately equipped. Was nice having a washer and dryer there. We enjoyed the location very much. We found many local cafés and a bakery and a little market that we're all very close walking distance. Overall we were very very happy with our accommodations and the price was very good for being so centrally located."

Lower-Normandy Travel Tips

The Advantages of Choosing Lower Normandy Vacation Rentals

The beautiful province of Normandy along the north coast of France is divided into Upper and Lower Normandy. The “departmens” of Calvados, Manche and Orne are known as Basse Normandy or Lower Normandy. and they are rich in culture, cuisine and stunning scenery. From the estuaries and marshes along the coastline to forested hills and apple orchards further inland, Lower Normandy is a delightful place to enjoy a relaxing vacation. It is perfect for food-loving ramblers who want to explore the charming rural villages and river valleys at a gentle pace.

Those who have visited Lower Normandy will know that part of the charm of this idyllic area are the local villages. The opportunity to stay in a centuries-old stone built cottage or farmhouse “gîte,” as French vacation homes are commonly known, is not to be missed. Friendly French neighbors will be happy to greet you with a smiling “Bonjour,” unlike their more haughty Parisian countrymen.

Vacation rentals will be fully furnished, often with antique furniture in farmhouse style with rugs on the tile floors. They will be full of character and charm and are always amply spacious. First stop each morning should be the local boulangerie, where hot croissants, crusty bread and savory pasties will have a line of customers waiting to be served, even at 7 a.m.!

Dine outside in the colorful garden of your vacation home, spilling over with poppies, peonies and lupins. The simple pleasures of life offered by a stay in Lower Normandy will be enhanced when you choose local accommodation and become part of the community, if only temporarily!

Things to do From Your Lower Normandy Accommodations

You cannot fail to enjoy the rich cuisine of this area, known for its fresh fish, shellfish, duck, Calvados (apple brandy) and creamy cheeses such as Camembert, Pont l'Evêque and Livarot.

Following the historic battle fields of World War II may appeal to history buffs or those with a family connection here. The area is perfect for exploring on foot or bicycle with winding lanes through flat farmland near the coast, and rolling hills further south. Church steeples always herald the next village where there will be a pâtisserie and a café serving everything from hot chocolate and coffee to beer and wines. You can even rent horse-drawn carriages to explore the area. The small harbors offer boat trips and fishing charters for a fun day out on the water.

What to Expect Weather-Wise When Renting Lower Normandy Villas

The weather in lower Normandy is similar to southern England, with slightly warmer summers. The area does get a lot of rain showers, hence the green fields and flourishing apple orchards! Average temperatures range from 8 to 23 C (46 to 73 F) throughout the year.

Getting to Lower Normandy

Many visitors want the use of a car and arrive by ferry in the ports of Roscoff, Caen or Cherbourg. It is also easy to use the drive-on Eurostar through the Channel Tunnel from southeast England. Driving time from Calais is about five hours.

Flights to Paris are cheap and frequent and Lower Normandy can then be reached by a hired car in around three hours. The local airport at Dinard has flights from Stanstead, Luton and East Midlands airports in the UK.

Places to Visit from Lower Normandy Accommodations

Lower Normandy has 600 km of coastline to explore with cliffs, pebbly beaches and sandy coves. The popular resorts around Cherbourg are warmed by the Gulf Stream and offer happy days on the beach. Deauville, Cabourg and Trouville are also well established holiday resorts.

Further inland are forests, fruit orchards and charming villages. Visit Bayeux with its famous 11th-century tapestry of historic events and the beautiful basilica at Lisieux. Explore the world-famous island-abbey at Mont Sant Michel by crossing the causeway at low tide. The ornate Abbey of St. Etienne at Caen was actually built for the Pope by William the Conqueror in the 11th century.
