  • Large, Central Apartment in Paris

    "We loved our stay at this apartment. It had plenty of space a kitchen with everything we needed, including laundry detergent, paper towels, dishwashing detergent, and toilet paper. We would definitely stay there again. It had plenty of storage space for clothes and suitcases so when we had friends and family over for dinner it seemed like a home. Not just like a place we were staying. After spending the previous week in a hotel in an another city, our family of 2 adults and 2 kids ( 7 and 9 yos) were happy to have the space and the ability to relax and spread out after spending a busy day sight seeing. Like all the other reviews say there are plenty of grocery stores, restaurants of all kinds, bars, cafés, museums, play grounds. Don't miss the Musee d'Art et Metiers which is very close and doesn't have the lines of the larger museums and is probably the closest to the apartment."

  • A dream vacation

    "We have extremely please by our stay at Domaine des Faures. The house is very spacious and well equipped and the surroundings are simply magical. The pool area is much more comfortable and enjoyable than what the pictures where showing. Finally, Ray and Jacintha have been wonderful hosts, offering the perfect balance of support and tranquility."

  • Outstanding home; relaxing, beautiful setting

    "Every part of this house and its surroundings provided us with moments both peaceful and memorable. We had an amazing stay here on our first visit to Provence, with our three kids in tow. The location was perfect for exploring the countryside, the outdoor markets, and patisseries of Cereste, and also close enough to visit Rousillon, Gordes, and Chateneuf du Pape. But there were also days where we simply stayed put, hiking the trails, relaxing in the pool, gazing at the stunning views, enjoying a chance encounter with a ranging chicken. A really wonderful place to not only unwind but to soak in some truly amazing Provence culture. Meir was a fabulous host, with info for us on anything we could have possibly needed, and Ans was an incredible resource for us as well. We would absolutely love to return."

Upper Normandy Travel Tips

Upper Normandy Vacation Rentals Along the Atlantic Coast of France

The French region of Normandy dates from the Middle Ages, taking its name from the Normans who ruled the area from around the year 911. Its history includes being owned by both the French and for a period in between 1066 and 1450. The coastal area of Normandy is along the English Channel and the Atlantic. Due to its proximity to the Atlantic, the region benefits from an oceanic climate and is known to be mild all year. Its fertile land makes it a large center for agriculture. The region is divided into two areas -- Eure and Seine Maritime -- called departments.

Upper Normandy accommodations come in a variety of options, from large hotels to small inns and bed and breakfasts. Many visitors choose rental properties to take the most advantage of this wonderful region. Among the advantages of these properties is the opportunity to stay in typically French homes and enjoying the relaxed lifestyle of the local people. Homes come with many wonderful extras to ensure visitors’ comfort and enjoyment.

Upper Normandy Accommodations in a World-Famous Culinary Region

There are many reasons why Upper Normandy vacation rentals are so popular. One of the main reasons is to enjoy the local cuisine. This gastronomically rich area includes local produce such as snails and foie gras. It is also famous for dairy products, such as rich butter and fresh cream, as well as an incredible array of locally produced cheeses. Without doubt, its most famous cheese export is Camembert but visitors will enjoy sampling local specialties such as Pont-L’Eveque or Brillat-Savanin. Many world-famous recipes originate from the area such as sauce Normande, tripe a la mode de Caen, sole Dieppe, Canard a la Rouen, moules d’ Isigny, and fruite de mer d’Honfleur. Brandy connoisseurs will know the region for its Calvados brandy and bon bere, a delightful local apple cider that is popular with locals and visitors alike.

Along the coast of Upper Normandy are small villages such as Fecamp where the local fishermen sell directly to the small restaurants. Visitors often enjoy discovering charming local cafes with fresh fish on the menu.

Visit the D-Day Landing Memorials Around Upper Normandy Villas

Visitors choosing Upper Normandy villas will discover ancient architecture and history in abundance. From the archaeological gardens of Vieil-Evreux and the centuries-old churches in Bec-hellouin or Fontain-Guerard to the medieval fortresses in Chateau-Galliard and Harcourt, it is a step back in time.

Upper Normandy Villas to Enjoy the Excellent Shopping

Along the coastline are two major ports, Le Harve and Dieppe. La Harve, the second largest port in France, is a major import and commercial center. Dieppe is a beautiful port town with great shopping. Visitors here will find a wonderful array of markets, selling everything from clothes and leather goods to fish and fresh local produce. At Dieppe, the battle scared Church of Saint-Jacques and the Musee du Chateau both draw visitors for their architecture and the museum has a collection of rare fine ivory. At the smaller village of Fecamp, the boardwalk or promenade is an ideal place for an evening stroll. The Benedictine monastery in the village draws many visitors to try the digestif that is made here.

The town of Evreux was heavily bombed by both the Germans and Allies during World War II but many of its spectacular attractions remain. The Cathedral of Notre-Dame is one of the country’s largest churches. It was originally constructed in the 1200s by King Henry II of England and famed for his stained glass windows.
