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.

60th Anniversary Normandy visit

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, along with his parents and his two sisters and husbands, went to the Normandy Beaches for his parents 60th wedding anniversary. From the first time we saw the pictures of the Normandy Cottage to the moment we regretfully left the property we were in love. It didn't do the pictures justice and it was a delightful place for us to relax when we were not touring. Martin and Lynn were absolutely wonderful! We took advantage of the option to have them shop for us and they made and served our "Anniversary dinner" the first night we were there. To say it was fantastic, fun and delicious isn't even doing it justice. Suffice it to say I am serving a French dinner to my family at Christmas time! They were available to answer any of our numerous questions and even gave us salad dressing when we discovered we had none. The beds were comfortable, the rooms spacious, the bathrooms large and with no shortage of hot water. The kitchen was fully stocked for any cooking we wanted to do. The pears and apples on the property made a delicious compote that we put on our "french toast" one morning. We would definitely, absolutely recommend the cottage to anyone, unless you want a town atmosphere, and dream ourselves of returning some day. Thank you Martin and Lynn for helping to make our trip one to remember for many years to come!

Normandy vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family and I (14 people - three generations ranging in age from 10-85) spent three nights at this wonderful home. We were welcomed by the owner Martin who showed us around the beautifully-maintained property. We originally thought we would eat out for dinner at least one night however we all loved relaxing in the magnificent back yard or sitting at the dinner table or watching a movie in the living room. We loved utilizing the grill in the backyard and prepared the most delicious dinners. We shopped at the nearby grocery store and had three leisurely dinners lasting until the sun went down after 10 pm. We visited Mont St. Michel on our own and had a guided full-day tour of Normandy (the mini bus picked us up at the house at 8 a.m.) This is a great home for families, couples and or small groups. We highly recommend this home!

The perfect house for our family & the best host!

The perfect house for our family & the best host!
  • 5 of 5
My family and I just returned from a wonderful trip to Normandy for the 70th anniversary celebration of D-Day. We stayed for 7 wonderful days/nights at Les Quatre Vents.

We couldn't have asked for more - such a beautiful cottage set in the Normandy countryside with an outstanding host. Martin was a wonderful host that was more than willing to help out in every aspect. He provided us with directions, suggestions, information, and anything else asked for (even spices we had forgotten at the store!).

The cottage provided more than we could have anticipated. There was more than ample room for our 10 family members. The kitchen was very well equipped, the dining room large enough to host our French "family" as well as our own family, and the yard beautiful! We had every amenity that we needed. We were close enough to all the Normandy events, only a short drive to everything.

We hope to return to Normandy soon and will definitely stay with Martin!

Warmest Regards,
The Perry's, Schulz's, Bexley's

Serene, fabulous accommodations, great hosts!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 10 thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Normandy thanks in great part because of Martin and Lynn's hospitality. We felt welcome and at home from the moment we arrived. The accommodations are lovely, and ample: 5 bedrooms and 5 full bathrooms! The country-side is serene and relaxing yet near enough to town for access to any needed supplies or just to go to the fresh market, butcher or pastry shop. We took them up on their offer for two delicious meals during our stay which were prepared to order and served complete with style and humor! I recommend this property without hesitation and can't wait to be able to return one day, there is so much to see and do, including just hanging around. Martin helped us arrange a private full day tour of the landing beaches and cemeteries and our guide Sean, was incredibly knowledgable and accommodating. Martin and Lyn are obviously proud of their property and maintain it clean as a whistle, and neat as a pin!!!

Fabulous Holiday! Fabulous Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
We had a simply amazing time at this fantastic cottage. The décor was perfect, the accommodations were plenty big for our group of 11, and the yard was a kids dream. Martin had lots of outdoor games and our group of 7 kids took full advantage. We traveled to Omaha Beach, Utah Beach, Bayeux, and St Mont Michel. We highly recommend this charming cottage!
