Authentic French country home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week at this lovely French stone house. The property is in the same village as the American WWII cemetery. There is a large eat-in kitchen and a comfortable living room with a fireplace. The gardens are a delight. We had most of our happy hours in the garden and enjoyed picking fresh herbs for our dinners. Thanks for allowing us to use your beautiful home.

Amazing property with every amenity. Located near Omaha Beach and close to Normandy DD sites.

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. The owner has it decorated beautifully with every possible amenity-dishwasher; washing machine; new bathrooms, electrical outlets everywhere. Mr. Bonnet answers emails immediately and I peppered him with questions! We were met by Christialle at the house who keeps it SPOTLESS. The linens and towels were new and fresh. The house was immaculate. The four bedrooms were comfortable. The back yard is walled. It is huge, and we spent most nights eating outside, grilling several nights with the grill that was provided. We booked through HomeAway, so unlike other reviews, all the money passed through home away. We provided a security deposit of $650 that was returned when we left. We did pay the $60 cleaning fee as we felt that was a bargain! The house is really big, with two rooms downstairs, the large kitchen and the large living room. There were even games provided. (Scrabble French version was quite fun!). Finding it was a little tricky, but the directions provided by Mr. Bonnet were appropriate; we just didn't follow them well. There is a tiny café open in the afternoons for lunch; otherwise shopping has to be done in Port En Bessin, about a 10 minute drive away to the Super U, which has everything one needs. I cannot say enough about how wonderful this house was to our two families, eight adults. There is even a crib for a child! Bayeau is only about minutes away. From this house we drove to Mont St. Michel (1.5 hours), Cherbourg (about an hour), Honfleur (a little over an hour), Caen (about half hour) and countless other abbeys and chateaus that dot the Normandy countryside. There are multiple fermes selling local cidre, pommeau, and calvados. They are all wonderful and worth trying. There was enough in the area to engage the folks in their 70s, in their 40s, and in their 20s! It is a fantastic site.

A very pleasant holiday property

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and 2 infants really enjoyed our recent stay in Omaha Cottage. The property is lovely and spacious and the extensive garden perfect for children to play safely. It is an ideal location for the nearby beaches and has many other places of interest nearby.

Sweet Memories

  • 5 of 5

We spent 12 days at the Omaha Cottage and out of a month in different parts of England and France, this was our favorite place by far. Colleville Sur Mer the town feels like a picture straight out of a WWII era book and is a slow paced and quiet. From the house to Omaha Beach it's actually 1 mile (I went running with a gps watch), but it's a beautiful 1 mile. It's also close to the Normandy US War memorial cemetery. The home itself is beautiful, definitely not in a neo-contemporary style, but if you're looking for a home that will transport you back in time and give you a feel for what it must have been like to live in a pre-1950's era, this home wonderfully transports you back in time. It has a washing machine, but not a dryer, a small television, a dishwasher and a fridge. Otherwise, everything else feels historic. My wife and I have five children and the yard was perfect. It's all private- both front and back and is large and beautiful, making for fun times playing capture the flag and other games with the kids. It is my pleasure to give the Omaha Cottage a 5 star review and if I ever get the chance to return to Normandy, I would definitely heavily consider staying here again. Also, Christelle the lady that is the property manager was wonderful. She is very kind. Note that she doesn't speak any English, but her son Simon usually accompanies and speaks English quite well. Thanks to the Bonnets (the owners) for renting their home to us, it along with the area truly has created memories we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

A couple of notes-

1. We are from the U.S., when the owner didn't accept payment through VRBO/Homeaway and wanted us to do an international wire for the deposit, I was nervous about this. However, did it anyway, hoping for the best. It worked out great and Claude the owner was great to work with. We paid the rest in Cash when we arrived and everything worked out swell.

2. Google maps does not know about Rue de Anquetil (the street this home is on) in Colleville Sur Mer, so it automatically re-routes you to another Rue De Anquetil in a town about 10 miles away. If you're using GPS, then go to Colleville Sur Mer and when heading east, look for the church (every town has one with a bell tower) and then about 400 meters past that, there is a small street sign for "Rue de Anquetil". The home is then immediately on the left and says "Omaha Cottage" in lettering on the entrance gate to the property.

Great cottage, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 days at the Omaha Cottage and fell in love with it and the location. We were able to walk to Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery from the cottage. We visited Utah Beach and the museum. Excellent! Arromanches and the 360 Cinema were just a few kilometers away and were well worth the visit. We also visited Bayeux and its beautiful cathedral, the incredible Mont-Saint-Michel and took the train to Paris for a day! And most important, we traced our father's journey from Utah Beach to Aachen, Germany where he was captured in World War II. An incredible week and a wonderful place to call home while we were there. Thanks!!!!
