If you happen to live on the east side of London then you are lucky enough to be able to fly from Southend to Caen airport. From Caen it takes only just over an hour to access the delightful area of Normandy in which our partner agent offers property for sale. Whilst the majority of French property in Normandy is rural, no houses are too far from towns such as Granville, Villedieu, Les Poeles, Gavray, Coutances and La Haye Pesnel and all of these can be accessed in less than 4 hours travel time from leaving Southend! Our partner agent has lovely properties in all of these areas and can arrange a viewing trip to show you some charming properties to suit your requirements. Mont St. Michel is also a top destination for visitors to Normandy and even this stunningly beautiful abbey on an island can be driven to in less than 2 hours. You may not be looking for a home on this wild coastal plain but it’s good to know how near it is for days out.
Caen airport is only tiny, which to my mind is definitely in its favour. It offers easy and relatively inexpensive car parking, a shuttle bus to the centre of Caen, a taxi rank and car hire. If you intend hiring a car please note that it is important to reserve in advance. Should you not be within easy access of Southend then do check out Dinard airport.
