Vacation rentals in Cabourg
Located along the famed Normandy coast, Cabourg is a seaside resort in Calvados, one of several such resorts developed for Parisian beachgoers in the late 19th century. It stands apart from the other resorts in this area as being one of the most family-friendly, but that doesn't mean that a holiday at a vacation rental in Cabourg doesn't offer something for everyone!
Beaches in Cabourg
It's the first question that anyone asks when making plans for apartment rentals in Cabourg: where are the good beaches? Cabourg offers several kilometers of beautiful sand beaches, complete with a host of activities to keep you occupied including windsurfing and beach volleyball. Any of the beautiful beaches along the seafront are a great place to spend the day, though you can also take a walk along the three-kilometer long beach promenade, which is entirely pedestrian friendly. Or simply choose a villa with pool as your Cabourg residence for your holiday, and soak up the sun in the privacy of your backyard. History buffs may also be interested in making the extra journey to the D-Day beaches along the Normandy coast.
Belle Epoque Cabourg
It's no surprise given its history that the town of Cabourg has a distinctly Belle-Epoque feel, with its gorgeous villas and townhouses. It's definitely worthwhile to spend a day exploring these relics of time past on foot. Visit the 19th century Grand Hotel and the Cabourg Casino for a taste of the high life that brought so many Parisians here in the late 1800s, including famed French novelist Marcel Proust: he was a regular resident and used the town as a model for Balbec in his life's work, In Search of Lost Time. Accommodations in this portion of Cabourg are very picturesque and definitely worth the extra cost. If not, you can still find cheap apartments a bit outside of the historic center, particularly off-season.
Calvados in Cabourg
Cabourg is located within Calvados, which means you have to try some of the local apple liqueur. You can either take a day trip from Cabourg to discover popular cider and Calvados distilleries along the Normandy Cider route, or you can simply sample the specialty in any of the local restaurants. Be sure to get a safe ride back to your vacation home in Cabourg once you've tasted your fill! You can also check out rooms for rent along the cider route to extend your Cabourg stay outside of the city itself. Choose apartments in Cabourg or in any of the neighboring Normandy towns for an experience you're sure to remember.
