About the property

Cottage in Fresville, Nr. Sainte Mere Eglise, Manche, Normandy, France - Peaceful Location, 10 Minute Drive To The Nearest Beach

Beautifully renovated country cottage located in the historic village of Fresville, 10 minutes from the nearest beach, our house provides the perfect location for families and visitors wishing to explore not only the invasion beaches and battlefields but also the diverse history and breathtaking scenery that makes up this part of northern France. Whether you are passionate about history or just want a relaxing vacation, Normandy has a huge variety on offer. Besides a vast number of museums - the outstanding Utah Beach Museum is just 15 minutes away - there are churches, castles, beautiful villages, cafes and wonderful countryside. The ancient town of Bayeux, with its famous tapestry, is a half-hour drive whilst the hidden charms of the Suisse Normande or the magnificent Abbey of Mt St Michel are just an hour away.

Quiet rural getaway

  • 5 of 5

More than the photos can say. Quiet comfortable and within reasonable driving distance to the WWII sites. After five days running around Paris, La Vallee was the perfect place to relax in the Normandy countryside.
