About Paly

Since I love the area, I would be very happy to show you what it has to offer, and share things with you in this wonderful house.

Paly purchased this house in 2013

Why Paly chose Caen area

Not only is it where I live, but it is also where I work. I want this large house to be the centre of endless meetings, all set in a community spirit.

What makes this house unique

Caen offers a wide range of activities for your holiday. You can visit the historical town centre and its museums, but also spend the day at the beach. It has the perfect location to go to the 70th D-Day anniversary, the horse fair, the Beau Regard festival, and much more. You can go to Cabourg, Deauville, Honfleur, or even Bayeux! The Auge Country cannot be missed either, especially Pont-l'Evêque, Cambremer, Beuvron en Auge, its small villages, its festivals, and its stud farms. The Memorial and D-Day beaches are simply stunning too.

We stayed here for a week with 10 of us. A bit tight but 4 of us moved on after 3 nights and then great. Stephanie was very helpful with travel suggestions. A car is necessary to visit WWII sites, lovely countryside and the many historical sites in the area.

Un super séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes venus en famille (4 adultes et 4 enfants) et la maison est extrêmement conviviale. Elle est très bien située dans un quartier calme mais proche du centre ville et du tramway. Nous remercions Stéphanie pour son accueil chaleureux, ses bons conseils de visites et son crumble pomme-citron absolument délicieux !

Estupendo alojamiento para grupos. Estuvimos ocho personas muy cómodas. Todo muy limpio y Stephanie es estupenda, una perfecta anfitriona. La casa está muy bien situada, muy próxima a la estación de tranvía de superficie, en un barrio residencial muy tranquilo a cuatro paradas del centro de Caen y 15 o 20 minutos andando. La estación de ferrocarril a 5 minutos. La casa está decorada con mucho gusto. Nosotros lo pasamos estupendamente,. Muy recomendable.
