Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday apartment in Caen - L'ESCALE

sunny flat of 105 m2

Ideal place for a family or group of friends arriving in Caen.

2 minutes away from Caen second world war museum (Memorial). The flat is situated in a quiet pedestrian street of the small shopping center of the Folie Couvrechef area: all facilities and shops in a kind of little peaceful island!

We put at your disposal 3 bicycles for adults (+baby seat for one of them) and 1 for teenager in the greenest area of Caen. Around: the bird's hill with its artificial lake and its rose garden, the Memorial's gardens, the poet's gardens...Whether you are here as a visitor or working you will appreciate the environment and our comfortable and welcoming flat.

The flat is 105 square meters. There is 3 bedrooms and the large mezzanine is provided with sofa-bed and half bathroom (the mezzanine can be considered as a 4rth bedroom) and low armlesschair. The nice spacious living-room with the great modern kitchen will make your stay very convivial. The apartment is completely equipped so you just have to bring your personal effects. Wifi connection and a few games will make your stay even more enjoyable.

From the the balcony, you can enjoy the view on the street and its trees. By car or bus you will have immediate access to the city ring and city center. Bus station "Acadiens" and "Sainte-Ursule" are just 200 meters away. Also close from Caen University: campus 1,2,3 and 4 are very near.

Decreasing prices relative to length of journey. Guarantee deposit: 200 euros in cash at arrival. Down payment for reservation: 25 % of price of location. The rest of the amount at arrival.

About Marie Faggiano

I spent 10 years abroad (Germany, Ireland and specially Uruguay) and I bought this flat when I arrived in Caen. Now, people of all around the world are coming to my flat and I love this way of life!

Marie Faggiano purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Marie Faggiano chose Caen area

I fell in love with this flat when I came back from south America. I bought it in year 2000 and I occupied it with my family during nearly 10 years. I appreciate so much this area of Caen that I live now in a house 2 minutes away from this flat.

What makes this apartment unique

The flat is both original and charming. A nive and spacious living room and kitchen make the flat easy to live. With its 2 separate stairs, it is a kind of doble duplex.

Great location and great for the kids

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my husband stayed here with our two kids aged 6 and 3. They absolutely loved the bus bunk beds and having a desk to sit at. It was hard to get them to leave the room! The apartment is in great condition and felt very clean. The layout is strange to begin with as there is no sink near the toilet but we got used to popping up the stairs after. Good for our fitbit steps!

The stairs are fine. There are two sets. Ourselves and our kids had no problem with them at all. The kitchen is well equipped though we only used the microwave and hob. Our kids loved the little mugs with faces on and wanted a different colour each morning!

We got fresh baguette and croissants every morning from the bakers downstairs. Delish!

We used this as a base to explore Caen, Bayeux and Point du Hoc. Marie was great st showing us around her apartment and happI'll spoke French to my husband and English to me. Would recommend this to friends.

Good location with a helpful owner but with an awkward layout.

  • 3 of 5

This condo head all the amenities and very comfortable beds but the layout was very awkward. One bedroom kitchen and dining room and small toilet we're on the first floor. In addition there was a bunk bedroom on the first floor for children . The second bedroom with a shower and double sink (no toilet)were up one stairway on the second floor and then there was a TV room/living room living room up a different stairway on the second floor . These two second floor rooms were not connected . It would work nicely with a family with 2-4 kids. Awkward for two couples.

Owner's Response: I will provide a plan of the flat that will help people to have a good idea of what the flat is. Taste and colours are not always the same. Some people would buy the flat scarcely they have reached it: it is not question of age but rather of having a youthful spirit.

The apartment is very spa...

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very spacious and well-appointed with a full-sized (and equipped) kitchen. Although not located near the downtown area, there are many shops in the pedestrian street (baker, grocery, florist, post office, bank). Excellent location for visiting the war memorial museum. Very quiet (except for the early mornings when the bakery trucks arrive, but it isn't too noisy and quite a wonderful smell to wake to). Owner is very responsive and accommodating.

Also, the location is very easy for getting off/on the autoroute (highway). We used it as home base for visiting Mont-St-Michel, Honfleur and the D-Day beaches.

The only downside is it may be a challenge for anyone with mobility issues. The shower is located on the 2nd floor with very steep stairs. I was nervous to carry our 3-month old up & down the stairs for bathtime, but my husband was able to with no problem.

We very much recommend this location for your stay in Caen .

Owner's Response: The height and depth of each step is standard. Only the last step is a bit higher than the others and I always inform people about it: nobody never got hurt in 15 years owning and renting the flat.

  • 4 of 5

"Marie is a great host, full of information and advice. She is very warm and friendly, and keeps in contact with you throughout. The accomodation is about 2k out of Caen centre, very clean and tidy and indeed comfortable, for our party of 8 people. We used the accomodation as a base for our 3 day WW2 Beaches trip and it was ideal and centrally located. Overall excellent"

  • 4 of 5

"The owner of this property was extremely helpful and assisted us with some lost property. The rental property was a welcome sight. The only negative with the property was no electric kettle to boil water for a cup of tea. Also the lack of a washing machine to wash clothes was an inconvenience. Overall great home away from home."

Owner's Response: "Pour information, le locataire avait loué sans machine à laver (navais pas chercher à le tromper/ lavais informé, ce nétait pas coché) mais à son retour en Australie il a quand même noté le manque de machine à laver le linge qui a été intégrée à lappartement juste après son passage (la machine est flambant neuve). Dautre part, la bouilloire électrique (kettle) est également disponible dans la cuisine (neuve aussi)."

Easy to find: between CHU Hospital Caen and Memorial of the second world war.

Follow roadsigns 'Memorial' and 'CHU' when you arrive close to Caen. On the Caen ring, take Exit nb. 6 'Vallée des jardins' or nb. 5 'Chemin vert'. then 'Centre commercial Folie Couvrechef'. Go to the very end of the street and park near the church. Here we are!

I provide a homemade guidepage of restaurants and visits I recommend.
