Accessible Holidays in France
Our house in France is in Camprond in the Manche (Normandy) region in the North of France and is equidistant between the two historic towns of Coutance and St Lo.
The property is situated at 15 Le Bourg, Camprond, and is within 20 minutes of local beaches and close to many points of interest. Camprond is just one hour's drive from ferries and airport.
"My husband was severely injured in a bus accident in 2018 and this was our first trip since to France as a family. We were nervous about organising a holiday in France, but reassured from the outset by the excellent communication and compassion shown by the owners, their professional experience in nursing and extensive knowledge of disability.
Provision for my quadriplegic husband and his two carers was perfect and, as a bonus, the enormous house and everything provided for a supremely comfortable stay, and in particular the 'teen suite' on the top floor and the hot tub and sauna were much enjoyed by our children, aged 15, 16 and 19. Our dog had a wonderful time as well and we absolutely loved 'the old France' of wonderful great value restaurants, beaches with free and easily available disability parking, plus dog access, and an absolutely amazing gaufres/churros/crepes etc stand at Gouville-sur-mer.
Bruno, who looks after the house and its visitors, was incredibly quick and helpful if ever there was a query. We can thoroughly recommend this property and location to families or groups including someone with any sort of disability, and to families with none at all."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Camprond Farmhouse!! A typical French country farmhouse beautifully appointed which was extremely comfortable! We stayed in the gite (annex) as my husband is partially disabled and it was such a treat for him to be able to have a bath because the gite is fully equipped for severely disabled people! He normally showers so this was the first bath in many years!
So many things to do in the area that we were busy most days with some not joining all outings, staying in to enjoy the lovely farmhouse, soaking up the sun.We were also lucky enough to have a seafood feast one evening with both raw and cooked oysters followed by lobster on the barbecue! Wonderful to be able to have all these delicacies so easily available locally!! A real treat!!
We so look forward to visiting again!"

"I stayed at Camprond farmhouse for a week at Easter time in 2019. It was a girls only trip and we had a fabulous time. Booking was straightforward and the instructions for travel/arrival very helpful. The house itself is beautifully renovated, has everything you could need and was immaculate for our stay – all rooms have been finished to such a high standard and have their own en-suite bathrooms which makes all the difference for a group booking. The garden is beautifully tended and really well equipped for al fresco dining etc. We even made it into the wood-fired hot tub (special thanks to Bruno, the groundsman, who kindly lit it for us!), despite the weather being a bit chilly, and taking in the picturesque countryside views whilst having a dip and a glass of wine was heaven! The area has lots to offer and explore (you’ll need a car) – long beaches, a large local supermarket, plenty of delicious French restaurants (including some incredible Michelin recommended places close-by), small and larger towns to wonder around. Within walking distance (20mins each way) of the house are a good bakery and butcher. Highly recommended."
"Thank you for sharing your beautiful French Farmhouse. We had an absolutely fabulous time and we could not have asked for a more beautiful and peaceful place to stay. The garden surrounding the house completed the whole sense of calm with roses, hydrangeas, hedging, and sheltered areas to sit and take in the views across idyllic French countryside.
We found so many things to do within an easy drive including visiting the leading tourist destinations of Mont-Saint-Michael, The D-Day landing beaches, and The Christian Dior museum. Having fabulous beaches within approximately a 35-minute drive was great, and I would highly recommend the wild beach called Plage de la Vieille Eglise and its miles of sand dunes. With plenty of historic towns and markets to visit we quickly all became immersed in the friendly French culture.
The drive from the ferry was surprisingly straightforward along excellent roads. We did not want to leave, and hope to return. Thank You!"
