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

Spacious and fully fitted apartment in Caen: ideal for small groups

If 2 nights needed only please ask.

Prepare your stay in Normandy!

Welcome in Caen, a few steps away from the Memorial, in this fully furnished and fitted accommodation. You drop off your luggage and everything is at your disposal. It is completely independent, you find a place that combines comfort and quietness and you are ready to explore the surrounding areas.

Between friends or in family, this newly fitted apartment in a chalet style offers charm, comfort and proximity to everything: Memorial Museum of the World War II and Cold War, shops, green spaces, etc.

Only a few km away, there are Norman meadows with apple trees and horses and the sea with sandy beaches. It is also very close to the university hospital, the university campus 1 and 2 and activity areas: this place is ideal for holidays or professional stays!

As the apartment is South-West exposed, you can enjoy the bright living area and the sunset from the balcony!

The apartment is located in a small and very quiet shopping area that is mainly composed of a long pedestrian street in the heart of the green spaces of Caen. The accommodation offers both indoor and outdoor comfort: you don’t have to go far to do your shopping, the parking is free, bikes are at your disposal on site and you can enjoy the quietness to rest.

A few steps away, crossing Wuerzburg square, you will reach the Memorial of Caen that traces the history of the World War II and the Normandy Landings without forgetting the building dedicated to the Cold War.

Then, the easy access to the ring road will guide you to the Landing Beaches of Normandy and many museums spread over the coastline: Ouistreham, Arromanches, Omaha Beach etc.

In the district of the Memorial and the Maison du Cheval (horse house), there are many green spaces: the Colline aux Oiseaux, the Vallées des Jardins, the Jardin des Poètes, the Parc de La Fossette (outdoor children games) and cycle paths. Not even 10 minutes away from the town centre by car.

25 % deposit upon booking and balance upon arrival

No security deposit.

I provide a home-made guide with addresses of restaurants and recommended visits

About Marie Faggiano

I have been living in Ireland, Germany and Uruguay. In Montevideo, I became passionate about Argentinian tango and never got tired of it! Now I travel less: people come to me and it is very pleasant too!

Marie Faggiano purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Marie Faggiano chose Caen area

Renting allows me to be independent and to reconcile my family life and my professional life while having the pleasure to welcome travellers from all over the world. I lived 9 happy years in this apartment!

What makes this apartment unique

Located a few minutes away from the town centre (7 to 10 minutes), the apartment combines charm, space and comfort in the more luxuriant district of Caen. In this district of the Memorial of Caen, called “Folie-Couvrechef”, you can find all shops and amenities within easy reach. You can quickly access the ring road and reach the train station or Caen-Carpiquet Airport in 10 minutes. The exhibition park of Caen and the convention centre are also 10 minutes by car.

Superb flat!

  • 5 of 5

Great flat in a nice quite neighborhood with frequent transit steps from the door. Makes a great base to explore Normandy and parking on site if you have a car. The flat is very clean and well stocked essentials, grocery store around the corner as well as an exceptional boulangerie. Look forward to returning to Marie's place!!

There is much to be appreciated for this location, however, there is only one washroom and the layout is not ideal. The "pedestrian" street was under construction and there is not much in the area. Really need a car to get around.

Owner's Response: The flat is exactly as described on the add and as presented on the pictures. There is one big bathroom and half bathroom near the mezzanine. In France most of the shops close at 19:00 (bakeries, groceries etc). Nevertheless the little supermarket at the corner of the street is open from 08:00 in the morning untill 20:00 from tuesday to saturday, from 08:00 to 12:00 on sunday and is closed on monday. The library in the street is being renovated as well as most of the buildings in the area have been renovated as it is one of the biggest project of heat insulation in France that is why our president Mr. François Holland has visited our streets in mai 2013. The construction is now ending as full tourist season is about to start (6 of june coming soon°. As the flat is very near the Memorial of Caen, the area has enjoyed a great renewal of all buildings around and owners and guests can be delighted!

Marie vous accueille chez elle avec un grand sourire ; on se sent comme chez soi ; tout est prévu dans l'appartement aussi bien pour les petits que pour les grands, ( jeux, livres, linge de maison, fond d'épicerie). Que de bons souvenirs dans cet appartement pour un séjour en famille. Laurence

A Great Way to Enjoy Normandy

  • 4 of 5

This summer my husband and I and some friends (7 people total) traveled to France and stayed at Marie's apartment. Marie was so flexible about our arrival/departure times and was extremely helpful in recommending places to eat and sight-see in Caen and the surrounding area.

The apartment's location is a little far from the town center, but it is really quite convenient as it has a grocery store, butcher, two bakeries, a fruit shop, and a bank within one block. We sent a representative from our group down for fresh croissants and fruit every morning; it was a great way to fuel up for a long day of touring Normandy. Caen was also convenient for seeing Bayeux and the Normandy beaches (30 min drive) and Mt. St. Michel (1.5 hr drive).

The apartment itself was a good fit for our needs, although there were a few things we weren't expecting. The kitchen is well stocked with plates, utensils, pots, and pans for cooking, and the beds were all comfortable and clean. The bathroom situation was a little odd: there were three separate rooms on different floors, one for the toilet, one with a sink, and one with two sinks and the shower. The fact that they were all in separate rooms was good for our group of seven, but we agreed that it was weird not having a sink in the toilet room and not having a toilet in the shower room.

All in all, though, I would highly recommend Marie's place if you are considering a vacation in Normandy. We had a great time, and this was an ideal staging ground for all our travels. Thanks, Marie!

Close to the Landing Beaches of Normandy

Ouistreham: 15 km

Courseulles-sur-Mer: 17 km

Bayeux: 28 km

Beuvron-en-Auge: 36 km (one of the most beautiful villages of France)

Cabourg: 26 km

Mont Saint-Michel: 126 Km

Sea/beach: 15 Km

Boutiques: 0.01 Km

Town centre: 2 Km

Memorial museum of the World War II: 0.7 km

Relax in the most luxuriant district of Caen very close to the Memorial of Caen (Museum of the World War II) that you can go visit on foot. A few minutes away on foot or by bike, you can also discover the Colline aux Oiseaux (bird hill), the Jardin des Poètes (poet garden) or the Vallée des Jardins (garden valley) and enjoy the close shops.

The town centre of Caen, its castle, its marina, its many restaurants and town hall are accessible in a few minutes.

15 minutes away by car, you can go to the Landing Beaches and to museums: Ouistreham, Courseulles-sur-Mer, Arromanches and further, Omaha Beach with its huge beach and its impressive American cemetery. But Normandy is also synonym of horses, wooded countryside, hiking, Mont Saint-Michel and the cliffs of Étretat.

Other activities in Caen: Argentinian tango with 3 associations!

Golf of Biéville-Beuville 5 km to the North-West of Caen (18 holes)

Golf of Garcelles-Secqueville 5 minutes from Caen (18 holes)

Further, the domain of Golf de Clécy is located in the Calvados in Normandy, 35 km to the South of Caen in the heart of a richly wooded rolling region with panoramic views. This is why we call it: the Norman Switzerland.
