Excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

The property was in a lovely quiet location with the owners close by but not intrusive. Property better than the description given, kitchen fully equipped to a very high standard, everything you would need and more. Bedrooms light and airy although a mirror would assist the ladies. Good utility room with new clean appliances. Kids had fun in the games room and even the house had extra toys such as buckets, spades, footballs and board games. The goats and chickens were also very friendly. The nearest supermarket was only a short five minute drive so you could easily stock up on essentials. The beaches were also only a short drive from the house. Overall one of the best properties we've ever stayed in would highly recommend for anyone looking to explore the Normandy beaches, just relax or to enjoy the laid back way of life in France.

Charming house and charming hosts

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at Les Merisiers from April 2nd to 9th as a family consisting of 2 grandparents, 2 parents and two children aged 10 and 6 years.

The house was ideally situated for us - in the countryside but with quick and easy access to the D-day landing beaches, Bayeux and supermarkets and shops. Port Bessin was also a few minutes away and we loved the Sunday

market and the choice of restaurants.

The house itself was newly renovated and was well equipped and comfortable.

Having a dishwasher was also a bonus!

Monsieur and Madame Ribot were charming and helpful hosts. We would

certainly recommend the property to friends, relatives and strangers!

Great vacation home near D-Day sites

  • 5 of 5

THE MERISIERS was a fantastic place to stay for our family. We were four adults and two children and had plenty of space. The home was very clean, comfortable and well-equipped. The kitchen was great and having a washer and dryer was a big plus. Our boys enjoyed the ping-pong table as well. Madame Ribot was very friendly and helpful during our time there. The location is quiet and rural, but still right in the middle of many historical D-Day sites including Omaha Beach. Port-en-Bessin (with grocery store and fish market) is only minutes away, and the larger town of Bayeux is close as well. There is a lot to see and do in the area. We highly recommend this vacation home!

Owner's Response: Merci pour votre appréciation. Nous sommes ravis que vous ayez apprécié votre séjour dans notre gite les merisiers. Petite rectification il n'y a que 2 escaliers ! c'est une maison avec au RDC garage et buanderie, il y a donc 1 escalier intérieur ou extérieur pour accéder au 1er étage avec l'espace cuisine-salle à manger, chambres et surtout terrasse avec vue sur la campagne et un 2ème escalier pour accéder aux 2 autres chambres avec salle de bain-WC. Bon courage à tous pour la rentrée !

Schönes Haus mit viel Platz und sehr schönem Garten - ideal für Familien

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist sehr ruhig gelegen und ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge. Die Strände sind auch in ca.15 Minuten mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Diese und andere Tipps und Infos bekommt man von der sehr freundlichen und hilfsbereiten Gastgeberin. Zudem ist das Haus sehr gut ausgestattet- egal ob Küchenutensilien oder Badetücher und Babyzubehör, es ist wirklich alles da. Es war wirklich ein toller Aufenthalt und sehr zu empfehlen

De woning was confortable, netjes en mooi ingericht.

  • 5 of 5

Heel vriendelijk ontvangst van de eigenaars. Erg kindvriendelijk en heel hulpvol. Heel goed gelegen. Het was niet ver om alle bezienswaardigheden te ontdekken. De woning was voorzien van alle benodigdheden. We hadden niets te kort. Ook was er een supermarkt heel dicht bij. Is zeker een aanrader. We gaan zeker nog eens terug!
