After a relaxing drive from Caen through the French country side we arrived at this idyllic farm house. Our Son and his wife had arranged our stay so we didn't know what to expect. We were met by Donna who is the owner and shown inside. On opening the rustic door we found the perfect place to relax. The room...

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay at Le Calipel and look forward to seeing you again by which time I will have perfected gluten free bread for your wife but you will still have a baguette!

About the neighbourhood
Positioned in the American sector and liberated by the American Army at the beginning of August 1944, St Vigor des Monts is a sleepy village which wakes up a couple of times a year for its Fêtes; the Fete du Pain held in May celebrates bread and an artisan boulanger bakes in the restored village bread house. The Fete patronale is held in August and the whole village gathers and makes merry.<BR><BR>There are plenty of markets within easy reach of Le Calipel, the Tuesday market at Villedieu les Poeles is a lovely market with plenty of choice and variety. Granville, on the coast , has a fabulous market on Saturday morning which is a must for seafood lovers-the choice of mussels means you need to choose which bay and area you want them from.<BR><BR>The hilltop is covere... more
Getting around
As we are in a rural setting, a car or motorbike makes it easier for you to get to Le Calipel although we have had guests turn up on bicycles from the railway station at Vire!
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Dinard, Rennes: 100.0 km
Railway: Vire, Villedieu les Poeles: 18.0 km
Ferry: Caen, Cherbourg: 80.0 km
Le Calipel is situated within easy reach of the ferryports at Caen ( 1 hour), Cherbourg (1 hour 15) and St Malo (1 hour 20) and 20% discount can be offered with Brittany Ferries for these crossings. The northern channel crossings to Calais, etc are about 3.5 hours away by car. It is 10 minutes from junction 39 of the A84 so although very rural, is not too far from major routes. Comprehensive instructions will be provided from junction 39 to Le Calipel.<BR><BR>The nearest airports are at Carpiquet (Caen) but the most flights go to Dinard and Rennes, both about 90 minutes away. The Paris airports are about 3 hours away. Car hire offices are situated at all these airports.<BR><BR>GPS coordinates 48°54'31.77"N 1°03'41.16" W
