A large farmhouse in a lovely rural location. Convenient for many of the historical sites .

5 of 5
We chose this location as we wished to visit the D Day beaches and museums and to visit Bayeux and the tapestry. The property gave us a convenient and homely base to explore the region. Our experience was further enhanced by Dennis the owner who's historical knowledge of the area and WW2 helped us to make the most of our visit. We travelled with a friend form the USA who particularly wanted to visit Omaha beach and St Marie Eglise. Overall a very enjoyable visit.

Excellent second visit

5 of 5
Clean, tidy and modern house. Good communication from the owner. In a fantastic location, within walking distance to local bars, restaurants and local shops. Also close to the beach and sea. Cycling is great in the area with many tracks for off road cycling. Cycling on the local roads is good, as the roads are quiet. Already arranging next year's visit.
