Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Russy

Catering 4 stars (Departmental Tourism Committee)

Situated in a hamlet 4 km from the sea, this cottage offers a place to stay calm. Enjoy the large living room with open kitchen and terrace facing south. Its location is ideal to visit the landing beaches, between the American cemetery and the Arromanches artificial harbor. Many historic monuments are close (castles, abbeys, cathedrals ..) and several natural sites.

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.

Fantástica propiedad para visitar Normandía y en especial las zonas del desembarco. Los señores Dufour son muy amables y atentos. A la casa no le falta de nada. Es muy espaciosa y está perfectamente equipada. Muy recomendable

The Normandy countryside at its best....

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in Guillaume and Catherine's apartment in Russy and loved every part of the experience. Very close to the beaches, Bayeux and many small villages, it offers a great location from which to drive the Normandy countryside. The place is very comfortable for a family and has everything you would need for an extended visit. The huge, bright kitchen encourages you to find find fresh fish (not a problem at all) and vegetables and then taste some of the best seafood that France has to offer. Guillaume and Catherine are there to help but won't intrude on the peace and quiet that Russy offers. Our stay there was memorable and one that we would do again.

My husband and I wanted a quiet place to stay, but within easy reach of places of interest. This property is everything it says it is. Spotless, roomy, well finished with every home comfort that one could want. It is stunning, the beaches beautiful, the little towns and villages charming. The owners are very welcoming and friendly people. Perfect hosts there when needed but not pushy. One of the bests holidays we have had, will we go back, oh yes time and again, if just for the beauty of it all. Thank you Guillaume and Catherine!

Ruhig, erholsam, gut ausgestattet, nette Gastgeber

  • 5 of 5

Schönes altes Gemäuer, schön eingerichtet, genau wie auf den Bildern, ruhiger Innenhof und nur ab und zu ein Huhn zu Besuch! Gut zu finden und liegt ideal für alle D-Day--Sehenswürdigkeiten. Netter kleiner Fischerort in der Nähe in dem man abends schön draussen am Hafen essen kann. Im Haus war alles wie beschrieben, wir haben nichts vermisst! Aufmerksame aber unaufdringliche Gastgeber, genau richtig. Gerne wieder.
