Very clean & tidy with ideal location for D Day beach tours

4 of 5
We had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. We didn't stay in the property much as we were out all day looking at sights. Perfectly sized for a short stay. Extremely clean & tidy. We visited the Caen memorial centre and the Juno beach visitor centre as well as the German guns at Longue sur mer. We ate local seafood dishes and introduced our two young boys to moules & frites. The weather wasn't great but it didn't matter ass we were interested in the visitor centres. If returning we'd use a local tour guide to go and visit more of the beaches & specific sites of interest.

Our holiday

4 of 5
We had a lovely time when we visited Caen the house was great. I usually never sleep well when away but every night I had a wonderful nights sleep. The house was just the right size for two people and comfortable, clean and tidy and a supermarket near by. It was an ideal position for the places we went to visit would stay there again if we were returning to that area.
