Le Castel Flore in Manche, a cottage in Normandy: Le Castel Flore exterior

Modern apartment in a chic resort, 30 minutes drive from Cherbourg

This modern first-floor duplex is set in the grounds of a former mansion in the chic family resort of Carteret. Overlooking a quiet avenue, the apartment offers: two bedrooms (one double, one twin), a family bathroom (including mixer shower over bath, washing machine) and separate toilet, and downstairs a family room with TV, dining area and paved balcony with table and chairs, kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, fridge, oven/hob, and an additional toilet/cloakroom. A designated car parking space is available, along with bike storage, and the apartment building and car park are secured with electric entrance gates. Our representative in France is English.

Local shops within a short stroll include a boulangerie, patisserie and delicatessen. There are several excellent places to eat, ranging from a very good creperie, pizzeria and several waterfront restaurants to the Michelin-starred Marine Hotel. The nearest large supermarket is at nearby Barneville, together with a large poissoinnerie. There is a popular weekly market at Carteret and at Barneville, with markets at other local towns throughout the week. There is a bank and Tourist Office less than 5 minutes walk from the apartment.

Carteret’s waterfront is a short stroll from Le Castel Flore; the harbour activity includes the comings and goings of passenger ferries to the Channel Islands, sailing yachts and trawlers unloading fish. At high tide, the estuary provides a clear stretch of water ideal for visitors to the sailing school.

Carteret’s spectacular beaches are warmed by the Gulf Stream and sheltered in summer. They have been awarded the European Blue Flag for water quality. The beaches offer great stretches of shallow water for children to play. A walk around the headland will take you to miles of deserted sands on the Plage de la Vieille Eglise (can also be reached by car). In the opposite direction, Barneville-Plage is popular with French families, with plenty of water sports on offer.

The apartment is well located for exploring the wider Cotentin Peninsular, with lots of good local walking to suit most tastes. Carteret's twin town Barneville is 5 minutes away by car or a picturesque bike ride takes not much longer. Ferries to Jersey (22km southwest of Carteret) run from Carteret's Gare Maritime or Portbail April-October.

Further afield there is a fabulous choice of places to explore, from little villages and sections of the coast, to the D-Day Landing beaches, Bayeux and Mont St Michel. There is a good public swimming pool a short drive away and an excellent aquatic centre near Cherbourg.

We can offer a membership discount on Brittany Ferries bookings. Carteret is an easy 30km drive from Cherbourg. The ferry crossing from Poole or Portsmouth takes approx 2½ hours by catamaran and 4½ hours by ferry. You can also drive from Caen or Le Havre.

Unfortunately the apartment is not suitable for those with restricted mobility. Pushchairs however are manageable.
