We were so glad to stay in this place on the old square! What a find. We wished we'd been able to stay another day. Thanks to our hosts and to the friend who checked us in. For others travelling as foot passengers via ferry, we were surprised at the lack of taxis at the port and then in the city centre where the bus dropped us off. Find a map to get you to this treasure of a location. We took a bus to the Caen War Museum which was a day well spent. The abbey close by is impressive. The layers of history enveloped us in such stimulating ways, reminding we Canadians of the complexities of all our histories. Thanks for this opportunity to experience Caen in this special way at "Centre Ancien". It was memorable and too short. To other visitors: stay and savour this place!
We only spent a few hours in the house (we arrived around 7 pm and left the following morning at 11), but it was just what we we needed at the end of a 3 and a half week trip all over France. The apartment was within walking distance to beaches, bike trails, an equestrian center, restaurants, the Canadian D-day sites, and a small market with super fresh seafood. It was a great place to regroup before heading back home. And the added breakfast was amazing. Plentiful and delicious. Thank you!
