The Normandy / Manche region
Annexed by Roman legions and Viking adventurers, disputed for centuries by English and French kings, beach-head for D-Day armies, Normandy is a melting-pot of peoples and languages, a cross-roads where cultures and ideas, artefacts and produce, have met and mingled, giving it a rich heritage of traditions, monuments and history.
The Saint Sebastien de Raids area
Saint Sebastien de Raids is a small village just 5 minutes away from the town of Periers. It is rural but not isolated. There are many places to visit nearby, the nearest beach at Pirou is 15 minutes away, the towns of Carentan, St Lo and Coutances are all about 20 minutes away in different directions. The Bulot Festival (whelks) in Pirou is well worth a visit as are all the events that take place to commemorate the D Day landings. For the more adventurous a day trip to Jersey or Paris can be undertaken.

This is a well equipped, homely gite in a peaceful, charming village. It is a short drive to many interesting places like bayeaux and the D-Day beaches. There are really good restaurants in the local towns of Countances and Carentan. We were particularly charmed by the church bells which rang out musically from the village church.

Lovely holiday home in idyllic quiet village location which was perfect for our short holiday break. Very spacious, clean and well equipped with a large garden for our children to play in. We visited beaches which are approx a 20 minute drive away and had trips to various impressive towns within close proximity of the property. We particularly enjoyed relaxing evenings in the front conservatory. Would highly recommend this property and will definitely return.

Very enjoyable stay. The property is in a quiet village and is secure for kids to run around. Beaches are around 20 minutes drive away (either side of Cherbourg penisula so depending on weather can pick which side is best). Loads to see and do in the area and plenty to keep the kids and us occupied. Perrier has the nearest local shops which is around a 15 minute cycle ride (circa 3/4 minutes in car). The property was very clean and had everything we needed and expected to have. The rear of the property catches the afternoon and evening sun and is an excellent place to sit out for evening meals and drinks!
