Going to France this summer: The natural beauty of the Great West

Going to France this summer: The natural beauty of the Great West

After the lockdown related to the covid-19 pandemic, an uncertain summer period is looming and 9 out of 10 French consider it more prudent stay in France this summer. To take a breath of fresh air and avoid rubbing elbows with a crowd, the open spaces of the Great West are at your fingertips thanks to the Smartappart residential hotels. 

2020, the summer fraught with danger


Professionals in the tourism sector are concerned: what will be the option chosen by the French for their holidays and how far will they be authorized to travel? Will the borders be open or closed? Will beaches and parks soon be open? This unprecedented situation has many unknowns and the summer equation is likely to be unsolvable. The hastag CetEtéJeVisiteLaFrance (ThisSummerI'mVisitingFrance), created by Patrimoine 2.0 at the beginning of April to help private sites, is spreading on social networks and shows us the way: the French will surely be invited to stay in the Hexagon to avoid the second wave.

Apart-hotel: a secure accommodation solution


Flee large hotel complexes, group meals in crowded rooms, minimize contacts and maintain social distancing. Apart-hotels are based on a concept of customer autonomy with minimal staff. Online booking and payment and access codes sent via SMS all allow you to enter the accommodations freely at any time. The furnished apartments can accommodate families of 4 people and also have a kitchen for safe dining.

Great West and wide-open spaces

If you follow the walking paths near Caen, you will discover a stunning natural site of 325 hectares: the estuary of the Orne, the natural jewel of the Norman coast. With remarkable sites such as the Blavet Valley or the coastal path, Lorient Bretagne Sud enjoys an exceptional natural heritage. And also... a feeling of being at the "end of the world", a wide landscape punctuated here by a bell tower, there, in the distance, by the Saint-Nazaire bridge. And silence! Marshes and bocage cover almost half of the municipal territory. On the horizon the second largest Marsh in France: the Marais de La Brière. 
As you walk in the harbour of Cherbourg, you may be able to see dolphins or porpoises who like to hunt on the West Coast of the Cotentin.
Large spaces to get a breath of fresh air, loll, dream, run, smile and enjoy iodized and 100% natural holidays.
