Le Domaine

Rental Home -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 8
Avranches, Manche, Basse-Normandie, Normandy
The house is ideal for a beach holiday as the sandy resorts of Genets, Carolles, Jullouville and St Pair sur Mer are just a short drive away. The beaches are all very popular with families as they have rock pools and shallow water. For a more active holiday the area is ideal for cycling, horse riding, ballooning and microlighting. Why not take a guided walk to Mont Saint Michel - just 5 km across the Bay...

Le Domaine is in the picturesque village of Vains with a tabac a 2 min walk along the road and the national cycle route goes past the house down to the Bay with stunning views over to Mont St Michel at Le Grouin du Sud just a short cycle away.

Old style French house. Simple lodgings for a base to explore the area. Two very large bedrooms with a capacity of at least 8 people, although with the size of the kitchen and bathroom, it is really only suitable for a family of 4 or...More

We found the cottage easily and the town of Aranches is only a short drive away. The Tabac in the village is a short walk (even with a 3 and 5 year old) so we were there every morning to pick up a baguette, croissants...More

About the neighborhood
A great way to learn about Mont St Michel before you visit is to go to the Manuscript museum in Avranches that is an interactive visit through the history of the Abbey. In Avranches there are lots of lovely restaurants and cafes and the Botantical Gardens has a great view out over the Bay. Avranches also has the Aqua Baie swimming centre with a water slide and a toddler pool as well as a main swimming pool and a fun pool. There are theme parks and water parks in the area and information on them is available in the holiday house. There is the zoo at Champrepus about a 30 minute drive away. St Malo is a wonderful place to visit with its boutiques and beaches and there is also an aquarium there for rainy days. Rennes is a great day trip with lots of cafe culture and fabulous shopping!
