The property is lovely. It is immaculate, has three good sized bedrooms, and an open plan living space. There's also a lovely 'courtyard' area leading from the kitchen. There is a garage for your car if you wish. The property is ideally situated in Port en Bessin. It overlooks a working fishing harbour, and is a two minute walk to shops and restaurants. Port en Bessin itself is a very well kept, proud little town and an ideal place from which to explore Normandy - Bayeux is a 15 minute drive away as are the D-Day beaches. We cannot fault the property and would definitely stay there again. We were five adults. It's good for children too but there are lots of things on shelves around the house that may need to be kept out of reach of tiny hands.
Msr and Mme Degoulet are very friendly owners. They live half an hour away but will meet you on arrival. Mme Degoulet grew up in the house. When you've got them make sure you ask how appliances work because we never really got to grips with the cooker! Important tip - they ask for a 300 euro deposit in cash when you arrive. I didn't realise this and had to get money out of a cashpoint and lost out on the exchange rate when I converted it back into pounds. This is the only gripe we have but its a small one. Towels and bedding is supplied. They will return the money to you on the day of your departure. They ask you to clean before you leave or leave 50 euros for a cleaner. We cleaned and there was no problem.
In the town itself we recommend Le Fleur et Sel as somewhere to eat. There is a small supermarket just round the corner from the house and a bigger one half a mile away.
Overall we couldn't fault our stay. We were there for four nights. If we're ever in the area again we'll definitely see if we can stay there again.
Really enjoyed our stay here, lovely modern house. Nice outside area and appreciated the shutters too. Only downside was the internet wasn’t working, not a big deal whilst on holiday though.
Lovely holiday :-)
