About Pamela Howard
My name is Pamela Howard. I live in Lancashire with my husband Phil. We first fell in love with Port en Bessin some years ago when we visited the area whilst on a biking holiday in Normandy. We bought the apartment in 2007 and watched it been built. We had all our furniture delivered by John Lewis UK and have enjoyed wonderful holidays with family and friends over the past three years. We have enjoyed visiting all the D Day landing sites and especially like to ride about on our bikes and watch all the fishing boats bringing in their catch. We love to people watch and enjoy the local cider and food. We have maintained the apartment to a very high standard and we know that if you choose to rent you will find the apartment ideal for a relaxing or energetic holiday with all modern facilities
Pamela Howard purchased this Apartment in 2010

Fantastic for the D day experience.
Apartment was fantastic all the mod cons excellent location with a balcony view.
The location was superb was able to get anywere we required within a 40 mile radius. So able to cram all the D day experience within the 6 days stay. There was a local supermarket just round the corner brilliant! so convenient St bessin is nice and quiet fishing town away from the bigger towns yet right next to omaha beach. Could not have picked a better location or acomadation. We will be coming back as we enjoyed our week so much. Highly recommended excellent 5 stars.
Very comfortable and well presented.
Had a great time, the apartment was in a great location with all amenities close by. The apartment was light, spacious and welcoming and very well maintained. Our party thoroughly enjoyed the stay and explored both the local area and further afield. The port itself was lovely and the atmosphere at the fireworks on Friday was wonderful. Would definitely like to return at some point.
Home from Home
This apartment is very well equipped and has everything you may need for a very comfortable stay. There is a balcony where you can sit out overlooking the countryside. It is very clean and tidy, also has English t.v. for those that want it. Plenty of safe parking close by. Easy walking distance down to the town using various routes from the apartment. There is a good range of small shops in Port-en-Bessin, also a supermarket just on the edge of the town itself close to the fish market. Don't miss the market on a sunday morning it's worth going to. Also, good choice of restaurants to visit. Convenient position for exploring the Normandy landing beaches without driving miles. We had a very enjoyable holiday here.
Wonderful apartment in a lovely area
Fabulous week in July in this very clean and modern apartment. Ideally situated to explore Bayeux and the Landing beaches. Apartment had everything we needed in a quiet setting. English TV was a bonus! Would highly recommend and would love to stay again!
Ideal central base for D-Day beaches
This 2 bedroom apartment is well equipped, well furnished and has the added bonus of UK TV and a balcony, for that pre dinner glass of wine! Set in a newish development of mixed apartments and houses but offering a home from home close to the hustle and bustle of an active and thriving French fishing port. All the D-Day beaches are within easy reach as well as Bayeux etc. Plenty of informative leaflets available, if you haven't already made a plan along with other important info, especially the market in Port en Bessin on a Sunday morning. Reviews of previous visitors in the visitors book helpful regarding places to eat, bars etc. Owner, Pam also very helpful and informative. Would certainly recommend this as a base for seeing northern Normandy, just wish we had more time as the weather was exceptional for 1/2 term in October!!
Excellent apartment in Port au Bassin
A very clean, tidy and well equipped apartment. Having two children they were delighted to find free-view TV whilst meals were being prepared. We enjoyed a stroll down to the harbour some evenings to eat. Most of the time we were enjoying the Normandy countryside along with all it's history. So much to see and such beautiful beaches. The location was ideal as so close to the large hypermarket in Bayeux but also in Port au Bassin. The owner was very helpful in making sure we had all we needed for a very enjoyable holiday. I would definitely recommend this to friends. Thank you Pam.
