APARTMENT CLOSE TO CAEN MEMORIAL IN RUE DES BOUTIQUES SURROUNDED BY GREEN SPACE

Caen Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Spacious and fully fitted apartment in Caen: ideal for small groups

Prepare your stay in Normandy!

Welcome to Caen, a few steps away from the Memorial, in this fully furnished and fitted accommodation. You drop off your luggage and everything is at your disposal. It is completely independent, you find a place that combines comfort and quietness and you are ready to explore the surrounding areas.

Between friends or in family, this newly fitted apartment in a chalet style offers charm, comfort and proximity to everything: Memorial Museum of the World War II and Cold War, shops, green spaces, etc.

Only a few km away, there are Norman meadows with apple trees and horses and the sea with sandy beaches. It is also very close to the university hospital, the university campus 1 and 2 and activity areas: this place is ideal for holidays or professional stays!

As the apartment is South-West exposed, you can enjoy the bright living area and the sunset from the balcony!

The apartment is located in a small and very quiet shopping area that is mainly composed of a long pedestrian street in the heart of the green spaces of Caen. The accommodation offers both indoor and outdoor comfort: you don’t have to go far to do your shopping, the parking is free, bikes are at your disposal on site and you can enjoy the quietness to rest.

A few steps away, crossing Wurzburg square, you will reach the Memorial of Caen that traces the history of the World War II and the Normandy Landings without forgetting the building dedicated to the Cold War.

Then, the easy access to the ring road will guide you to the Landing Beaches of Normandy and many museums spread over the coastline: Ouistreham, Arromanches, Omaha Beach etc.

In the district of the Memorial and the Maison du Cheval (horse house), there are many green spaces: the Colline aux Oiseaux, the Vallées des Jardins, the Jardin des Poètes, the Parc de La Fossette (outdoor children games) and cycle paths. You can breath deeply less than 10 minutes from the town centre.

I have been living in Ireland, Germany and Uruguay. In Montevideo, I became passionate about Argentinian tango and never got tired of it! Now I travel less: people come to me and it is very pleasant too!

Marie Faggiano purchased this apartment in 2000

Renting allows me to be independent and to reconcile my family life and my professional life while having the pleasure to welcome travellers from all over the world. I lived 9 happy years in this apartment!

Located a few minutes away from the town centre (7 to 10 minutes), the apartment combines charm, space and comfort in the more luxuriant district of Caen. In this district of the Memorial of Caen, called “Folie-Couvrechef”, you can find all shops and amenities within easy reach. You can quickly access the ring road and reach the train station or Caen-Carpiquet Airport in 10 minutes. The exhibition park of Caen and the convention centre are also 10 minutes by car.

SATISFACTORY

  • 2 of 5
There is much to be appreciated for this location, however, there is only one washroom and the layout is not ideal. The "pedestrian" street was under construction and there is not much in the area. Really need a car to get around.

Owner's Response: The flat is exactly as described on the add and as presented on the pictures. There is one big bathroom and half bathroom near the mezzanine.
In France most of the shops close at 19:00 (bakeries, groceries etc). Nevertheless the little supermarket at the corner of the street is open from 08:00 in the morning untill 20:00 from tuesday to saturday, from 08:00 to 12:00 on sunday and is closed on monday.
The library in the street is being renovated as well as most of the buildings in the area have been renovated as it is one of the biggest project of heat insulation in France that is why our president Mr. François Holland has visited our streets in mai 2013.
The construction is now ending as full tourist season is about to start (6 of june coming soon°. As the flat is very near the Memorial of Caen, the area has enjoyed a great renewal of all buildings around and owners and guests can be delighted!

THANK YOU MARIE!

  • 5 of 5
We chose to stay in Caen because we wanted to go on a d-day tour. My husband and I haven't really travelled a lot so coming from Australia and staying in an apartment and not speaking French was putting us out of our comfort zone. But Marie made that much better- she met us at the apartment and we had spoke in English to her from Paris the night before, she showed us everything in the apartment and helped us with bus timetables etc and directed us to the memorial to book a tour. She had lots of extras in the apartment and we felt very comfortable. We were unsure about booking a taxi to take us to the train station for our departure but Marie did this for us. She is a fantastic host! Thank you. Julie and Steve

UN WEEK-END EN NORMANDIE

  • 5 of 5
Nous étions deux familles avec enfants/ado et nous souhaitions passer un week-end à Caen pour visiter la ville, le mémorial et les plages du débarquement. Tout était vraiment parfait. La description du site, les photos, nous ont permis de bien préparer notre séjour sans mauvaise surprise. Nous avons du modifier la date initiale de notre séjour et Marie a vraiment été très aimable de nous permettre ce changement de dernière minute. Sur place tout est prévu pour faciliter la vie des résidents : documentation sur la région, équipements de l'appartement, confort, services à proximité ...

Pour agrémenter le tout nous avons eu la chance de profiter du week-end le plus ensoleillé de ce printemps. Bref un week-end entre amis convivial et réussi. Je recommande cette location même pour une durée plus longue.

Merci encore à Marie pour son accueil impeccable.

GOOD LOCATION, ADEQUATE FURNISHING AND CLEANLINESS

  • 4 of 5
Marie,
I just want to thank you for all of your help and guidance during our stay in Caen.  You went well beyond what is expected when renting a property.  
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The property was pleasant and very well located for our needs.  You provided many incidentals that we have not had in the other places that we stayed. We also appreciate the time that you took to familiarize us with the property. Again, not something we experienced in other places. This added to our comfort significantly.  Thank you for that.
We also particularly appreciate you escorting us to the train station.  You certainly did not need to do that.
We would recommend this propeprty to any friends who are visiting Normandy.

EXCELLENT POUR VISITER LA NORMANDIE!!!

  • 5 of 5
Endroit très propre et fonctionnel, bien situé pour visiter les beaux sites de Normandie. Nous étions six personnes et l'appartement s'est révélé très confortable et bien subdivisé.

Appartement situé près d'une pâtisserie, d'une boucherie, d'une épicerie et de restaurants. Cela est très pratique en fin de journée, après la fatigue des voyages.

Stationnement facile pour deux véhicules.

L'accueil est chaleureux et les petits extras sont appréciables.

Je recommande cette location.
