General Description

Normandy seaside villa for rent - Set high on a hill overlooking the fishing port of St Vaast-La-Hougue on the Cherbourg Peninsula, this renovated 18th century farmhouse is only 10 minutes away from Jonville beach and within walking distance of a local village and its bistro. It is also well situated to visit all of Normandy's landmarks such as the World War II landing beaches, the Bayeux Tapestry and Mont St Michel. Once a working farm, this traditional granite house has been recently converted into an attractive family home, with its original charm undiminished. Century-old exposed wooden beams and the massive granite fireplace blend seamlessly with the modern floor-to-ceiling picture windows, enhancing the impact of the surrounding views; the shimmering sea with the harbour of St Vaast and its famous towers on one side and Normandy's rolling countryside with the typical small fields and high hedges on the other side.

Local Area / Activities

This region of Normandy known as Val de Saire boasts a beautiful coastline with islands, forts, rock pools and fine sandy beaches where key historical events took place both in medieval and modern times attracting visitors from all over the world. The famous World War II D-Day beaches of Omaha and Utah, the war cemeteries and museums are all within driving distance from the farmhouse whilst Bayeux is only one hour's drive and would make a lovely day trip. Many water sports are available at nearby Jonville beach and St Vaast-Le-Hougue, including windsurfing, sailing and yachting.
