We had a lovely break in this very traditional cottage. It is well appointed, everything you could possibly need was provided. Very clean and comfortable. A great location for visiting the surrounding area. Audrey is the perfect host. She is very helpful, and easy to speak to with my very limited ability to speak French! If you aren't sure where to visit, Audrey will advise you and there are plenty of leaflets of different places provided. We would definitely stay there again and would highly recommend the property to other people. Thank you Audrey.
Our party comprised two sisters and their husbands. Two of our fathers came ashore in Normandy in 1944 and we were here to find out more about their stories.
Thierry and his wife greeted us warmly and showed us round the little terraced house . It had everything we needed for self catering, an indoor table and another in the sunny courtyard garden. Although the kitchen area is tiny it is well laid out and is equipped with plenty of utensils, cookware, cutlery and tableware. The lounge/diner has comfy seating for 4.
Upstairs the bedrooms are comfortable although the smaller of the two is rather cramped.
The shower is efficient with constant hot water the and shower room is surprisingly spacious.
The downside is the toilet which is downstairs. Stairs which creak badly and this was a considerable disadvantage in the night!
The house really is close to the stunning expanse of sandy beach where Coleville Montgomery meets Ouistreham. The cycle path and promenade stretch in both directions along the coast.
We had come to follow in the footsteps of our fathers who landed on DDay at Gold and DDay +1 on Sword.
The property was a perfect holiday home for this and we explored not only the famous landmarks and memorials but also the countryside beyond where battles and skirmishes were fought to secure the foothold which led to freedom in Europe. With Field Marshall Montgomery at the nearby crossroads we were in good company and spent a fruitful, yet moving week in number 43.
One helpful addition would be a DVD player - we had wanted to watch ‘The Longest Day’ !
