  • Un endroit pour se reposer loin du quotidien.

    "Nous avons passé un séjour délicieux dans cette maison à la fois simple et chaleureuse. La vue est splendide. Le prix de cette location est très intéressant par rapport à toutes les commodités que la propriétaire propose. On est à la campagne mais la ville est à 2 minutes en voiture. Pleins de choses à faire autour : du sport, de la culture, etc. On a vraiment beaucoup aimé ! Et puis Avignon, Uzès etc... La propriétaire est très accommodante et nous avons été accueillis avec beaucoup de chaleur. On vous recommande vraiment cette maison !"

  • Lovely property - would recommend and will return

    "We rented the Ancienne Poste for the first time this year. We've been coming to Provence for years and always wondered what it would be like to stay in a village rather than out in the middle of nowhere. The Ancienne Poste has converted us. You can wander out to the bakery, pop down to the bistro for a beer and to admire the view. We have three kids the youngest being three and they loved their home from home. What was kind of great was the fact that the ground floor is massive and open plan which meant the kids could run about without ever disappearing too far. The property was well designed and specd to a high standard. The owner told us that there was no concierge service but despite this we found the property manager really available and helpful - even without knowing too much English. The owner had an arrangement with a nearby hotel so that we could use their pool. We used this once during our stay but mostly found ourselves heading out to go biking, walking, village hopping and shopping. Thanks so much. We'll be back!"

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.
