lovely spacious and homely gite

  • 5 of 5

Delightful hosts and a convenient location close to Omaha beach and the lovely Port en Bessin. We spent 11 nights here and were happily entertained the whole time with much to see and do all within a 20 minute drive. The table tennis table which is in the barn on the left of the photo was particularly popular with our boys. The gas barbecue also made cooking very simple. I would certainly recommend this property.

Stille og skøn landsby idyl.

  • 4 of 5

Tæt på alle turist oplevelserne og beliggende i det smukke landsby miljø, hvor der er stille og roligt.

Hvis man kan lide at cykle, er det oplagt at medbringe cykler, da der er en del cykelruter i området.

A good hideaway

  • 4 of 5

A lovely property but you will need to drive to get anywhere. Very rural and quiet, full of bird song and chickens.

Beautiful Area & Lovely Property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the property with our 2 year old daughter, and all we needed to bring with us was our adjustable stair gate.

The area was perfect for us, with all attractions withing a short driving distance.

I would recommend this property to anyone looking to stay within the Normandy region.

Exactly as Advertised

  • 5 of 5

This is a surprising gem in Normandy near to so many WWII important tourist locations. We came to tour and were ideally situated. The cottage is well equipped and so comfortable that we felt at home immediately. We paid extra for cleaning and for linens/towels, so it was really a perfect vacation. Four of us stayed; my wife and I, my adult daughter and her son. We had privacy when we wanted it and a great communal area to sit and review the days events and plan for the next day. If you are here to visit the battle sites, don't miss the flag lowering at the American Cemetery, about a 15 minute drive. It starts precisely at 17:30 hrs and can be an emotional experience. We visited the beaches, St. Mere Eglise, the Airborne Museum (really well done) and Mont Saint-Michel. A lot to take in with two full days, but the cottage is well positioned to make it all possible. The owners live right nexxt door and are available for any questions about the cottage or the area. I would love to stay here again.
