The location is a good base for viewing all of the Normandy sites. The house was brand new and we found out on arrival that we were the first visitors! The house is literally on the beach and when the tide goes out you can walk over to the Mulberry harbour or all the way to Arromanches if you're feeling energetic. There is a huge amount of space to play on the beach so perfect for families. The house was well equipped and has a great common area in and out. The only drawback was the local amenities. We found only two local restaurants within walking distance and the shops have limited opening hours. Get to the patisserie early if you want a croissant! Overall a wonderful house with amazing views highly recommended.

The house was perfect for all 3 of our families and we loved the open space layout. Plenty of room and very comfortable and clean with all the usual facilities and amenities. Right on the beach front and just a short walk from Ouestreham itself. Plenty of lovely English spoken restaurants and bars and only about 5 minutes away from 2 supermarkets. In close distance to all the historic places which are a must to visit. We will definitely be returning to this house.
