About Ingrid OCallaghan

I am from Ireland and I understand the importance of history. I am proud to own a unique part of a very historical area in France

Ingrid OCallaghan purchased this house in 2002

Why Ingrid OCallaghan chose Bayeux area

I was astounded with the rich variety and historical importance of this area after first visit here in 1998 .I was lucky enough to be able to obtain the property here in 2002, and have since loving restored it. There is so much to see and do in the area and surrounding locations, when I and my small children we are never lost for something to do or see.

What makes this house unique

The house is beside Omaha Beach allowing beautiful walks / cycles / drives to all nearby historical areas(American Cemetary, Point Du Hoc, WW II Buildings, Museums, Vinyard's etc). Also close to Bayeaux / Caen for shopping and eating out

Guestbook comments from the owner

A great location for those who are interested in the D-Day beaches - and even if you're not. Not really recommended for those who have a problem with stairs as access to the upper floor is by way of a spiral staircase, but that is made clear on the details of the property, which is well equipped. We would certainly return to this property.

If you like quaint

  • 2 of 5

If you like quaint, you will like this property. The driving instructions I got on line were poor. While the bedrooms were nice, you may not be able to get your suitcases up the spiral staircase. After a day of showers in standing water, I found a plunger and removed a huge glob of hair. Having said all that, our experience at Omaha Beach and Utah Beach and the American Cemetery were amazing.

Les mètres carrés sont là; mais c'est veillot!

  • 1 of 5

Un peu déçu par la caractère vieillot de la décoration; qui allait bien avec l'ancienneté de la maison. Propreté pas impeccable lors de notre arrivée; impossibilité de se connecter à internet via la box live ( le numéro de cette box ne correspont pas ); quelques manques quant aux ustencilles de cuisine;chauffe-eau qui fuit(eau s'evacuait à l'extérieur de façon continue);

dans la douche, pas de porte savon ainsi que douchette en mauvais état;en plus d'avoir une machine à laver la vaisselle HS (indiqué sur un papier), j'ai dû

écoper cette machine vaisselle tous les 2 jours car de l'eau nauséabonde sortait sur la sol de la cuisine. J'ai téléphoné à Normandy solutions pour leur indiquer le problème. Soucis: ils ne parlent que la langue anglaise, contact pris alors par sms. De même, il me semble un peu étonnant de ne pas recevoir les chaînes françaises par la TNT.(Tv par satellite ASTRA avec 99% de chaines Anglo-Saxonnes).J'espère que les personnes qui sont venues après nous n'auront pas de lave-vaisselle qui déborde, et que la réparation

a été faite.

En conclusion: c'est cher payé pour le ménage.Par contre, l'habitation est bien située par rapport à la plage(5 minutes à pied).

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a whole week in this beautiful area in northern France. The home is part of a converted train station, with a nice feeling of privacy and reclusiveness. It is truly walking distance to Omaha Beach and a handful of reasonable bars and restaurants. There is a convenience / grocery store within walking distance. The whole area closes down each day for lunch and after 1700, so pack prepared.

The kitchen is lovely; we spent hours each evening with the windows open and a glass of wine, watching the sheep and cows.

I recommend placing a mirror in each room; there is only one mirror (in the bathroom that was often in use) and only our daughter could use it effectively, as it is so low. Thank you for your diligence in getting the Wi-Fi back up.

Car: recommended

Just a short stroll from the main D Day landing site of Omaha Beach, located in the picturesque village of Vierville Sur Mer.

You can drive the route of the allies, from Vierville to Arromanche

with many stops and sites of importance. There are 2 great museums nearby, and a very beautiful walk along Omaha beach, up the bluff to the American cemetery is recommended.

There are many tours of the landing beaches and historical World War II locations and some will even collect from our door.

Other Activities: Historical WW II tours, D Day drives, Scenic Walks,

Golfing, Boating, Fishing, Cycling, Cider Vineyards, Horse Riding

Schools, Shopping, Traditional French Restraint's
