18TH CENTURY COUNTRY COTTAGE FOR BAYEUX, NORMANDY INVASION BEACHES, D-DAY SITES

Bayeux Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Peaceful, comfortable home base for relaxing after days out sight-seeing.

Enjoy interesting tours of the Normandy Invasion Beaches, D-Day museums and sites. Visit the Bayeux Tapestry and the Mont Saint Michel. Discover cider farms, oyster parks, picturesque fishing ports, chateaux and gardens. Savour Normandy's gastronomic delights!

Les Quatre Vents is a beautiful rose-covered stone cottage peacefully set at the end of a quiet no-through lane (no passing traffic) in unspoiled rolling countryside bordering Cerisy Forest. The area is criss-crossed with trails and bridle-paths - super for walking, running, cycling and horse riding.

The cottage has stone walls and oak beams, full central heating and modern facilities and is spacious, very comfortable, clean and well equipped for up to 15 guests - perfect for large families, for friends and for groups to explore this wonderful area and to relax together.

There is parking (minibus accessible) for 8+ vehicles in the private courtyard which has automatic lighting and level access into the cottage.

You will be welcomed to a lovely clean, aired cottage with fresh flowers in the living rooms and welcome refreshments to enjoy at your leisure. For arrivals during cooler weather the cottage will be pre-heated and the log fire will be ready to light, so you will feel cozy and comfortable right away!

Please see the plans of the cottage (third image in the photo section) for the layout of the accommodations.

The five bedrooms are arranged with your choice of king beds or single beds, bed linens are included and the beds will be made. More beds can be added for extra guests.

There are five full bathrooms with a constant supply of hot water for anytime showers. Bath and hand towels, bath mats, shower gel and hair dryers are provided.

The spacious lounge has an open fireplace for cozy log fires and comfortable leather seating for 12 guests (another sofa is available for extra guests). Entertainment includes free wi-fi, flat-screen satellite TV (CNN, BBC), DVD player, movie library, books and board-games, CD player and radio. Tourist information and itineraries for visiting the D-Day Landing Beaches etc.

Convivial meals can be enjoyed in the spacious separate dining room where 15 guests can sit together around the two large farmhouse tables.

There are two separate very well equipped kitchens with plenty of big pans and dishes, tableware and glasses etc. - ideal when catering for large groups. Picnic sets, ice packs, cool boxes and cool bags are provided for your picnics.

Pre-arrival shopping, home-cooked meals, professional chef hire or catering can be arranged.

Laundry facilities include two washing machines (one with integral dryer) and a steam iron and board. An optional maid/laundry service is available.

Double French doors in the lounge and the dining room lead into the lovely private enclosed sunny garden which is attractively planted for year-round colour. There's a large lawn for outdoor games and plenty of garden furniture for relaxing. Guests can enjoy views of the countryside and forest, and help themselves to garden herbs and fruits in season (pears, cherries, plums, wild strawberries).

There's a barbecue grill and two 8-seater picnic tables for al fresco dining - try our village butcher's prize-winning steaks and sausages!

3 miles to Cerisy-la-Forêt village for your daily provisions and morning croissants!

There are three very good restaurants within 10 minutes' drive.

Martin and Lyn (your friendly and discreet hosts) live in the farmhouse on-site and are happy to offer information and assistance throughout your stay.

A fine dining experience

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 18, 2014

This cottage is everything it says it is and more. It is in a beautiful, peaceful location. Perfect for touring the D-day beaches or seeing the Bayeaux tapestry. Seven of us, all friends, stayed a full week in the whole cottage. The cottage is spacious and very comfortable. The perfect spot to relax and visit with friends. We enjoyed a fire in the fireplace on most evenings.
Martin and Lin, the owners, live on the property. They were always home if we had a question or needed anything. We hired them to cook us dinner on three evenings. The dinners were as good if not better than what you would get in the best restaurants. Truly fine dining. They would arrive at the cottage to prepare the meal while we were out touring. They would set the table, prepare the meal and do all the clean up. The meal would always include an appetizer, an entree with vegetables, a cheese plate, bread and salad, and dessert. Martin served the meals and even filled our wine glasses for us. It was such a wonderful place to relax with our friends after a full day instead of sitting in a restaurant. Martin and Lin are amazing and wonderfully friendly people.
I would recommend staying at Les Quatres Vents to anyone. Staying here was a most wonderful experience.

Normandy Vacation Cottage

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 27, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
Our experience at Les Quartre Vents far exceeded our expectations. Our family group of nine loved the comfortable beds, modern showers and all facilities. The location was wonderful, driving there was like going back in time, peaceful and full of photo opportunities. It suited our needs perfectly for visiting war sites and memorials. We all enjoyed the excellent kitchen facilities where we could prepare a home cooked meal after a full day of sightseeing. Laundry facilities a big bonus. Owner Martin Fletcher was very helpful providing information about the it's attractions and restaurants and was always available when needed.
Loved the warm, comfortable decor and everything was immaculate. Our only regret is that we did not have a full day to just enjoy the beautiful cottage. We would highly recommend this vacation home.

Great Cottage with Outstanding Location for a Normandy Visit!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 19, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
Our family group of 9 adults found this cottage exceptionally comfortable. With 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms it was a dream come true! 9 people got hot showers every morning before setting out to explore Normandy. It is in a peaceful setting easily accessible to D-Day Beaches, Mont St-Michel, Bayeux, etc. The cottage was very clean and relaxing - facilities were modern. Martin was most helpful with a high level of knowledge of the area. The only regret we have is that we didn't plan our trip so that we could stay longer - we had underestimated how beautiful Normandy would be and how much we would enjoy Les Quatre Vents!

Charming, down a tiny country lane

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 20, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
Les 4 Vents is a charming rustic farmhouse at the end of a tiny country lane. Wooden beams adorn, brick walls surround, everything is freshly painted and up to date. Bedrooms are on the 2nd floor. Everything is squeaky clean. We never secured any cell phone reception but we did have intermittent internet and the television was just fine. If you want privacy, this is IT. Our host was an excellent resource who located a guide for a full day tour WWII sights of interest to Americans. Our guidebooks did the rest. Day trips as far west as Mt. St. Michelle and east to Honfleur and everything in between in Normandy.. Home in the evenings to rest up and plan our next outing. We loved this property.

Kids loved it!

My wife and I and our three teenaged grandchildren just returned from France. This lovely cottage is everything as described and more. The interior space was perfect for 5 people (1/2 cottage). It was very clean, modern, and well maintained. Our host, Martin, could not have been nicer. He even made up a google map to help us find the small rental car location. The grounds and surrounding country side are beautiful. I went into the village of Cerisay la Foret (5 min. drive away) and bought baguettes and croissants at the pattasserie each morning. Driving out the small lane, rabbits would scurry out of the way, the cows would be mooing, and the birds chirping. What a lovely way to start the day. We also went into the village butcher shop and bought entrecote for a grill-out one night. Martin had charcoal and lighter fluid ready to go. We played badminton and then ate a delicious steak. There are plenty of board games and movies for evening entertainment. The location is perfect for the many attractions in the area. It is a very quite and peaceful place to come home to in the evening. When we returned back to the states, my grandson called a few days later and said "I wish we were still at the cottage" . We will never forget La Quatre Vents.
