SEA FRONT, EXCEPTIONAL VIEWS, CHARMING AND DESIGN HOUSE, SLEEPS 5

Port-en-Bessin-Huppain House Rental Photos and Description

Ideal to visit the landing beaches, Omaha Beach, Arromanches, Bayeux

The landlady of 'La Maison sur le Quai' welcomes you in 'Un Bateau sous mon Transat', old fishermen's house located directly on the sea front in Port-en-Bessin, Normandy, on the landing beaches. In this stylish gite with charm, design and exceptional sea views, you will enjoy the sea view through the windows, from your bed and even from the shower, and the coming and going of the boats at high tide. At low tide, you can lounge on the sand in the outer harbour, at the foot of the house. Complete renovation in 2011-12, antique furniture and antique sailors’ objects mix with raw materials. New equipment and high degree of comfort. Quiet location. 2 steps away, direct sale from anglers every morning, close to all shops and restaurants, parking in front of the house, free garage and parking nearby. Ideal for 2 couples or a family with up to 5 people: 2 bedrooms (1 double and 1 triple), office, 3 bathrooms, table football. No pets.

In Normandy, in the Calvados, in the heart of the landing beaches, 10 km away from Arromanches, Bayeux and Omaha Beach (American cemetery of Colleville-sur-Mer), in a traditional fishing harbour and marina, genuine and preserved. Port-en-Bessin is particularly known for its Scallop fishing. The Bessin is a very nice region with a great historical richness (Bayeux's tapestry and Cathedral, manor-farms, castles, gardens, abbeys, landing beaches and museums, etc.). Beautiful countryside landscapes and Norman marshlands. On both sides of Port-en-Bessin, the coast allows nice walks along its long sand beaches and seaside resorts from the beginning of the century. The cultural centre of Port-en-Bessin regularly organises visits: auction, boat workshops and semaphore. Many sports...including Omaha Beach golf course on site, hikes, coastal path walks, fishing, walks on the old rigging, etc. 1h30 from the Mont Saint Michel, We fall in love with Honfleur, Deauville, Pays d'Auge, the Cotentin...

Superb

Staying at Un Bateau sous mon Transat for a week was the best part of our Normandy experience. We visited most of the D-day landing beaches, the memorials and cemeteries, the Bayeux Tapestry, and hiked along the cliffs. It’s a beautiful region but wherever we went, we were always anxious to return to this place right on the quay in Port-en-Bessin. The village is small and peaceful, the people are friendly and helpful, and one can walk almost everywhere. There’s a fresh fish market on the quay every morning and this home is well-stocked for preparing one’s own culinary delights. (If cooking is not on your agenda, there are plenty of really good restaurants all around…and they prepare the same fresh ingredients.) For less than the price of a luxury hotel, you can enjoy a two bedroom house with a kitchen, living room, playroom, and laundry room. The owner, Laurence Berdeaux, is a very sweet and accommodating woman who pays attention to those little details that make one’s stay memorable. I can’t offer enough kudos to her and her vacation home.

Beautifully decorated D-Day location

Laurence must have had a lot of fun decorating "Le Bateau sous Mon Transat" ("The boat beneath my deck chair") - it is full of tastefully chosen mementos of the seashore. No wonder it was featured in a design magazine.

She has cleverly taken a three storey harbour front building and transformed it into a comfortable, thoughtfully appointed vacation home. There are charming eccentricities, from the iron spiral staircase up to the master bedroom suite to the foosball table in the laundry room.. There are lots of fun kid-sized toys, if they should want to play on the beach at the front door, as well as a second-bedroom, which is reached by a more conventional staircase.

The kitchen is spacious and the appliances are full-sized. It is extremely well stocked, and there are lots of dishes. Water seemed slow to boil on the ceramic cooktop, but we mentioned this to Laurence, and she will be replacing the pots. TV (English news, and lots of French and German programs) and WiFi are strong. There is a thoughtful selection of DVDs (including "Saving Private Ryan" and "The Longest Day") and of CDs, especially of chanteurs (Serge Gainsbourg, Jacques Brel, etc.).

Port-en-Bessin is a charming little fishing village with amenities for the tourist, such as restaurants and shops. It has its own charms, such as the walks up onto the bluffs and the never-ending spectacle of a working fishing port. The boats return each day in the harbour at the front door of "Le Bateau", where you can watch them unloading their catch at the fish market. Port-en-Bessin is also a peaceful, central location for easy drives to Bayeux and the D-Day sites, ranging from Pegasus Bridge and Juno Beach in the East to Omaha and Utah in the West. Free parking was plentiful, and we did not use the private parking available for the unit.

Laurence is a pleasure to deal with, and will ensure your stay is a pleasant one.

A dream comes true!

A fantastic house in a sweet village so close to the ocean, its music and its smell!
The house is beautifully decorated with touch of the past along with top moder amenities. All was tight and clean and Laurence, the owner, was lovely and very helpful.
I obviously will recommend the place to all my friends and next time in Normandy, I will certainely go back inspite the inconvinience of too much stairs...
The location is fantastic for trips to the whole area, from Honfleur in the the north to St. Malo and Cancal in the south-west. But you need a car for it.
We used to buy fish and fruit de mer in the dailly fishermen narket just across the quai and enjoy cooking and eating them in the comfortable kitchen in the house.
Don't miss it - it's a real gem!!

A hidden gem, sophisticated yet charming

We had an absolutely terrific time at Un Bateau sous mon Transat. First, on arriving, we met Laurence at the cottage and she was kind, welcoming and full of useful information about the area. Second, the cottage itself exceeded our expectations in every way. The view was spectacular, the town was utterly charming and quiet away from the tourist hordes yet convenient to all the sites, and the interior decorating was so professionally done we were almost reluctant to bring in our bags to disrupt it. Every room in the cottage was beautifully done yet not overdone,
It is perfect for romantic retreat for a couple, and just as great for a family vacation spot. The tide change was amazing, and our kids loved walking on the exposed ocean floor at low tide. It was hard to leave and we'll be back.
