  • Delightful stay in every way!!

    "I can only say that if you are considering this studio... Stop your search! Look no further! I stayed for three nights, having just left yesterday for the Luberon, and kicking myself for not having used Amaury's studio as my base for my 21 days! Not only is the studio filled with warmth and quiet sophistication, It has everything you could possibly need or want. The highlight of my stay it has to be said...( And I just loved Avignon!).... Was the graciosness, caring, generosity and heart of this beautiful man, my host, Amaury! I am a woman travelling alone to a foreign city and I could not have felt more cared for...( Even prior to leaving my home in the USA. ) I was picked up at the TGV at night... Given all kinds of info regarding Avignon as well as pertinent info re: the studio. When I inquired about where to purchase a charger for my devices...( i brought the wrong one w me!)... There was a new one at my door that day. When he brought me to the TGV to pick up my rental car, he came in with me, came to the car...checked it for damage...alerted the staff he found some and had them mark my contract accordingly... ! I have rented many places in my travels, and this was an experience that stands alone. Beautiful city, lovely people, fabulous apartment with an exemplary host!"

  • Perfect Paris Apartment!!

    "We loved our stay in this apartment and will return! I was shocked at how large it was - bigger than the square footage advertized I think because the French don't include kitchens and bathrooms. This is a large apartment for Paris and we were so comfortable. It is furnished nicely. The new sofa easily makes into a comfortable and very large bed. The bedroom is large as well - no hitting your knees rounding the bed as you will in other one bedrooms and Paris hotel rooms! The flat panel TV works great as did the WiFi. Great windows and lots of ventillation. Quite cool. Large bathroom and shower and kitchen VERY roomy for Paris. The owner was great to deal with - providing everything we needed before and during the stay. Now for the location - terrific! You are moments from metro and the Rodin Museum. The neighborhood is very, very safe and also quiet for a city location. This means that you are only a few blocks from all the madness that is Paris, but have peace for sleeping. There is a pharmacy, grocer, baker, ATM, fruit stand, and bistro within a few yards of your front door. This could not have been more convenient. I love this place and will return!"

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.
