Overview

Sainte-Mere-Eglise House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Coigny is in the heart of the Norman countryside with its beautiful fortress chateau built around 1598, yet the D903 connects the village with the main route to the rest of the Manche. The 'Battle of the Hedges' and the 'Band of Brothers' on our doorstep

Utah and Omaha beaches are close by with their many museums and interesting sites of yesterday. Further afield is Mont San Michel, Cherbourg, Caen and the Bayeux Tapestry - all about one hours drive.

Not forgetting the Parachute drop area of the 82nd and 101st Airbourne divisions only 15 minutes away at Carentan, where the annual celebrations take place and over 500 parachutists drop filling the skies with memories of brave young men.

Tea and Coffee facilities available. Full continental breakfast with ham, cheeses, fruits, home made jams, pastries and cereals, fresh local eggs, etc. Ideal house for family bookings with privacy in seperate suite.

The long terrace of the house faces the south enabling one to enjoy the sun for a quiet coffee after breakfast or a glass of wine before going out to dinner.

There are many restaurants, cafes, shops and markets in villages surrounding Coigny, from 10 to 30 minutes car ride away - each village having it's own market for fresh fruit, vegetables. Trinkets, fashionable French design clothing, handbags etc.,

The famous American cemetery based at Colleville with it's recently constructed Visitors Centre is a must - about 40 minutes distance. But make sure to spare at least 2-3 hours, especially if you wish to walk on the sands of Omaha. It closes at 5.30!

On the West coast one can see Jersey and Guernsey and take a short ferry ride to taste the flavour of the Channel Islands.

So much to see and do, make sure to stay the extra night.

Keywords: Normandy style detatched house in quaint village, with uninterrupted rural views towards the Chateau of Coigny. Self contained family suite on the first floor, consisting two king sized bedrooms, with bathroom and cloakroom.

About The Owner

I am a lady of much travelling, which includes living in Italy's capital of Rome for some years. Then a short move to Hong Kong, seeing Peking and the great wall. A return to my home city of London with it's history and cosmopolitan atmosphere. But the busy-ness of everyday life with it's constant stress prompted my to visit Normandy.

Here I found the summer musical festival of music held at Lessay Abbey, the piano recitals at the Manor of Gonfreville, not forgetting the many occations of choir oratorios in the Cathedrals of St Lo, Coutances, Carentan and Cherbourg.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Sainte-Mere-Eglise

I fell inlove with the land of villages, some with old grey stone Norman farmhouses, others homes built with honey coloured granite and yet others built with ochre coloured cob cottages - clay taken from the gardens and built by the local farm workers many years ago. I also noticed the care of the many flower arrangments lovingly attended by the families of each village. Everywhere is simple charming, and I had to live here.

I retired nearly three years ago and love entertaining my, mostly American and Canadian, guests embibing them with the many delights and places of intrigue in this garden of memories in the Manche.

It is superbly situated in the heart of the D.Day battlfield area, being close to

the famous beaches of Utah, Omaha, a little further away, Gold Juno and Sword. The towns and cities of Cherbourg, St Lo, Valognes, Haye du Puits, (6 mins - and many restaurants) Periers, Carentan (12 mins) and Coutances are all within 30 minutes drive.

The famous event of the 82nd and 101st Airbourne Parachute division are elebrated yearly with great entheusiasm when over 500 parachutists of several nations drop only 10 minutes from here by the river of the Merderet, St Mere Eglise. This is the site of the well known 'Iron Mike' Monument, which overlooks the whole event.

There are also markets everyday in any

direction from here within about 30 mins drive.

What makes this house unique

My house sits on the skirts of the village, but near enough to hear the distant bells of our Norman church of Coigny with the monument to Francois de Franquetot duc et premier marechal de Coigny 1670 - 1759 in the family chapel.

Althought one can enjoy a peacful nights sleep the D903 road is about half a mile away and connects us with all of the main routes to the rest of the Manche.

Great B&B in Normandy

Great B&B in Normandy
  • 4 of 5
We loved staying with Jackie! My husband, daughter and I enjoyed the very comfortable upstairs bedrooms with separate bathrooms. Great breakfast every morning to start the day. Jackie was very hospitable and helped us with maps, driving, and even printed an airline boarding ticket for us. She made a dinner reservation and helped us with any questions as well as a bit of history of the region. The view from front porch is gorgeous French farmland. We visited in the late fall and were happy we had a GPS in our car, as it got dark early and the property is not so easy to find. Would stay again any time!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Marty and Dan. I'm glad the family suite found favour with you all. All the space upstairs is for my guests so they can get to the bathroom toilets and the visitors fridge comfortably entirely in their own space. The view from the porch is beautiful also in winter at sunset, I did not know about it until I had to take down a large straggly hedge. I continue to research the local restaurants to see how they measure up for the 2015 season. Merry Christmas.

Great way to start our trip

  • 5 of 5
After a long flight, we grabbed our rental car and arrived here in the early afternoon of a lovely summer day. Jackie was so accommodating, welcoming, and just plain charming, I knew we had landed in the best place to start our French adventure. I was traveling with my two children, 15 and 12, and their father for a family anniversary party.
The location is perfect to see all of the major sights from the D-Day events. If you have a car, the Caen Memorial museum and Bayeux are not far at all and well worth the trip.
I have been to Normandy many times, but this visit was most enjoyable because of our lovely hostess, the delicious breakfasts, and the overall relaxed atmosphere at the house. Our rooms were roomy with clean baths, reliable wifi, and just overwhelming calm. I will definitely stay here again. Cheers!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review and I certainly enjoyed meeting you. I am so glad you enjoyed the comfortable 6ft 6ins beds and of course the cleanliness which is my priority for all my guests. I think a good breakfast is the right way to start the day when one is touring around and Coigny is in a great location for many of the World War 11 and other historical sites. A third day on the Cotentin Peninsular enables guests to see the lovely sandy beaches on the west coast and taste some of the great fish meals in the restaurants along the coast. A day trip down to Mont St Michel is well worthwhile with free transport from the parking areas to the World Heritage site. Granville with Christian Dior's villa and old walled town is a great visit and Coutances with the beautiful Cathedral can all be seen on the journey back.

Wonderful B&B in Normandy

Wonderful B&B in Normandy
  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for two nights and had a wonderful time. The house was gorgeous, spotless and the beds were the most comfortable we had ever slept on other than our own. Breakfast was delicious and was a great start to our full day of touring. We were a group of six including my husband, our two young boys (9 & 13,) and my in-laws (70+). We all thoroughly enjoyed it, in fact, we wished we had more time there. Jackie was so wonderful right from the beginning with the reservation process up through the end with helping us choose restaurants and helping us with directions. We highly recommend this B&B for anyone coming through Normandy!

Owner's Response: Well as Wendy said there was much more to see on the Cotentin Peninsular than their 2 days allowed for but her meticulous planning enabled the family to see a lot. As always the comfortable beds were a winner I hate uncomfortable beds on a holiday and my zip and link beds can be two singles or one double according to requirements. I keep maps which are always useful in conjunction with the GPS. I keep sampling the local restaurants too to see if they are worth recommending. I am so glad Wendy and her family had a good stay they were a delightful family.

Ellen

  • 5 of 5
My brother and I brought our 88 year old father and mother to this wonderful home for three nights as we explored the Normandy Beach area. Jackie was such a sweet blessing to our visit and we loved having her play cards with us at night. The beds were so very comfortable and we were thankful to start our day with such a tasty breakfast. The house is on the edge of the village and is really quiet with a view from the dining room that looks out over green pastures. Everything about our stay here was wonderful and the house was spotless. Jackie knows the area well and gave us helpful advice on planning our day. We highly recommend this property for anyone.

Owner's Response: I was delighted that Ellen and family enjoyed the comfort and quiet of Coigny. They hired the SatNav from the Tourist Office in St Mere Eglise to guide them around the principal sites of DDay on the Cotentin Peninsular which is a great aid. Another lovely family from USA.

Delightful country lodging

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights at the end of June. The room and bath were comfortable, light, and spacious. We loved the country air and lovely, peaceful setting. The cottage was convenient to all the D-Day beaches as well as to Mont Saint Michel. The owner was the best. Her breakfasts were delicious and her comments and suggestions were most helpful. At the end of the day, we were able to stretch our legs by walking around the small village before going to bed. We would definitely like to return and would recommend this B and B to our family and friends.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review and for being wonderful guests and for awakening my interest in the World Cup amazing. Once again I was able to make my guests comfortable in my american size beds and in the en suite shower room with an ample hot water supply from my new boiler. St Mere Eglise with its beautiful stained glass windows of the paratroopers and Utah Beach are within easy reach of Coigny plus many more WW11 sites. As for the evening sun on the terrace one can thank the Good Lord for that.

Wonderful cottage in the Cotentin

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed the opportunity to live in this wonderful cottage, which was just a few miles away from St Mere Eglise, but felt like we were living in a remote farm community - fantastic! The owner saw to our every need, made a full (and filling) breakfast, and made reservations at the best French country restaurant we enjoyed during our entire week. I recommend this property to anyone looking for a less-hectic lodging experience while touring the D-Day Landing Beaches. We would stay here again without hesitation. Perfect for large families, but cozy enough for small ones (like ours) too!

Owner's Response: As I always say, Coigny is in a great location for the beaches and for many other sites on the Cotentin peninsular. My guests were pleased to stay in a quiet rural setting and they especially liked the view of the norman countryside from my terrace. I like to try the restaurants before recommending them and am always looking for new ones. I aim to make all my guests comfortable so they have a good memory of beautiful Basse Normandie. Thank You.
