Location description from owner

The Basse-Normandie region

The property is only fifteen minutes drive to the beautiful beaches at St Germain-sur-Ay, Creances and Pirou. St.Germain and Pirou have shops, cafes and restaurants as well as life-guard beach surveillance and Pirou also has a sea-swimming pool for when the tide is out. Creances beach is wild with 'discovery' footpaths through the sand dunes which are good for bird-watching.
Portbail, an ancient picturesque fishing port with shops, restaurants, bars and galleries as well as a beach (17 km) and Barneville-Carteret, (24km) with its fantastic clifftop walks are both chic resorts and fabulous places to spend time at. In the summer months, all these local towns host excellent fairs or 'vide-greniers' (a bit like car-boot sales but taking over the whole town).

On the other side of the peninsula, (35 minutes drive) are the D-Day Landing Beaches, Cemeteries and Museums. Bayeux, with its famous Tapestry depicting William the Conquerer's 1066 invasion of England is at 80km. To the south of Lessay, at 110km, lies the most visited monument in France outside of Paris - the spectacular Mont St Michel.

En route is Coutances with its fabulous hilltop Cathedral and 'Jardin des Plantes' and Granville, the 'Monaco of the North' a large holiday resort and port with its famous Casino, picturesque old town and a very interesting Aquarium.

Lessay

Lessay is renowned for its wonderful Norman Abbey dating from the time of William the Conquerer. Throughout July and August classical concerts and recitals take place here. For gastronomes, there is the guided tour around Reo - the major camembert and creme fraiche producer.. The area is also famous for its seaford, specifically oysters and mussels, which are farmed in the sea.
Also in Lessay is a Go-Karting stadium and nearby at St Saveur a canoe/kayaking centre. Lessay is situated in the National Park with many forests and walking/scylcle path. The nearest to the property, the old railway line, is just a few minutes walk from the property. If you are feeling energetic, you can cycle all the way to Mont St Michel!

Every second weekend in September nearly half a million visitors come to the annual 'La Foire de Sainte Croix ' which dates to the 11th century . For the whole weekend, 32 acres of Lessay is transformed into a marketplace, attracting over 400,000 visitors!

2014 is the 70th anniversary of the D-Day Landings, there are many commemorative events taking place at various towns on the peninsula between June and August. Not to be missed!

“Fabulous holiday cottage, felt like home!!”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2013

A lovely place to stay in a beautiful part of Normandy. Our cottage was perfect, little touches were fab and only (very teeny request) was, we needed a washing line (we are a family with 3 young children). Area great, lovely beaches, places to eat. Travelled to Bayeaux (well worth a visit), Mont St Michel (great place) and local areas, Falaise Castle. Just wished we could have stayed longer, Thank you Lesley & Larry for letting us stay in your holiday home.
