Lovely flat, great view, fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about our time in this adorable flat in Port-en-Bessin. First, Geraldine was a pleasure to work with from the time of our booking until we checked out. She left some goodies in the fridge for us that we greatly enjoyed and left gave us suggestions on where to go and what to do. Secondly, the flat was adorable and very clean. It is up a few flights of stairs which wasn't a problem for us. Once you get into the flat the view of the harbor is spectacular and never gets old. This place is a great location for those people touring the DDay beaches, Bayeux and even Mt. St. Michel. We had a car so it was easy for us to get around the area. We loved every minute of our stay in this sweet little port town and would definitely return.....we plant on returning one day. Thank you Geraldine!

Beautiful recently decorated apartment

  • 5 of 5

Geraldine was a very friendly and attentive host, and very helpful. Because we were travelling with my father, we upgraded to her larger apartment which she had recently redocorated to a high standard. It was fitted out with everything we needed for a week's self-catering holiday, with microwave, oven, hob, washing machine, pots, pans etc. The apartments are located right on the harbour front in Port-en-Bessin, which is an attractive village still with an operational fishing fleet. There is plenty of parking on the street outside. The village has 23 restaurants. Our apartment had a view right over the harbour mouth. It is perfectly located for a holiday in this part of Normandy (for the history nuts, the port sits right in between Omaha and Gold landing beaches and most of the D-Day sites and museums you would want to visit are a short drive away). Bayeux is about 15 minutes drive and Mt St Michel about 2 hours drive away.

Fabulous apartment even more fabulous hostess!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have to start this review with what an amazing hostess Geraldine is. She goes above and beyond what is required to be a vacation home manager. She becomes a friend. No question goes without a prompt answer and solution.

We 4 adults spent 6 days in her apartment and had a few personal issues one of which included needing medical attention and she made sure everything was handled until the end.

Her apartment is spectacular! The view is more amazing in person than any of the pictures you see and the apartment itself is decorated in designer fashion to enhance it's location.

The little town of Port-En-Bessin is picturesque and has so many little shops and restaurants. Our absolute favorite restaurant Vauban was just around the corner and the little grocery store Proxi just down the road which is run by a husband and wife that also are very helpful.

One of the things we learned the hard way is you do need a vehicle or be ready to pay quite a bit for transportation but even with that, Geraldine set us up with a driver that was fantastic and very prompt to our every transportation need.

The apartment is on the top floor, 45 stairs, with the most amazing view. No elevator so make sure you are ready to carry up luggage and climb the stairs. It didn't bother us at all as it was part of the charm of the apartment. There is one bathroom with a tub and a shower hose, no stand up shower. The beds are extremely comfortable and listening to the waves outside the window at night just helps put you to sleep.

If I had the ability to give Geraldine and her apartment a 10 stars review I would do that. We just loved every minute we were there and hated to leave but we will hopefully return one day and stay even longer.

Thank you again Geraldine for the most memorable 60th birthday trip!

Beautiful location! Beautiful flat!

  • 5 of 5

This flat is lovely! We used this as a base for 3 days in Normandy. Great location, the village is delightful.. and dinner is walking distance from the flat. The view as the tide comes in and out is just remarkable.

More importantly, Geraldine is a wonderful host. She anticipated our needs, and the flat was stocked with everything we needed and more. Overall, a most excellent experience !

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in August and had a lovely time.The apartment was spotlessly clean,loved the decor and the views. We enjoyed watching the fishing boats going out.Port en Bessin is a lovely place to stay, with plenty of places to eat.Geraldine was the perfect host,nothing was too much trouble. The wine and chocolates were much appreciated. Fireworks on Friday night were brilliant.

Perfect location for exploring historical and cultural sights in Normandy

  • 5 of 5

Perfect stay in a lovely idyllic location with plenty to do and see. Accomodation exceeded our expectations being tastefully decorated well equipped and spotlessly clean and our hostess Geraldine was very hospitable and could not be more helpful. With access to the Normandy beaches, the Bayaeux Tapestry and plenty of museums there was enough to keep anyone interested. Port en Bessin also has its own unique charm and an unbelievable 26 restaurants to choose from.
