Charming Apartment in Desirable Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 6 nights in June 2017 and would do it again in a heartbeat. Astrid was wonderful to work with, she met us at the house and went through all the house specifics and was available for any questions. The home is clean, well-maintained, and wonderfully decorated - perfect for a charming port town. Great towels, blankets, fans, kitchen essentials, etc. - and comfy beds & pillows. The location is absolutely ideal - lots of local restaurants right out the door, a grocery store literally around the corner, a pharmacy across the street, and a fabulous local farmers market on Sundays with incredible paella, fruits, and vegetables. The Omaha Beach Golf Course is about 5 minutes away as well. It is perfectly situated for exploring the sites of Normandy. We wanted a quaint quiet town for our vacation, and this was it. The streets "roll up" just after sunset, it is not a party town. We recommend grabbing a late dinner on the harbor and watching the sunset from Vauban Tower. Or take a stroll on the shell-covered beach when the tide rolls out. And be sure to stop for some ice cream as you wander home :)

One thing to keep in mind: There is one rather tall set of stairs to enter the apartment, and another set to get to the bedrooms, just in case anyone has trouble with stairs. That said, my husband and I both have knee issues (he got a brand new on in January) and we were able to handle them just fine. But honestly this is one of the best HomeAway rentals we've ever stayed in, and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to have a quiet getaway to explore the charms and history of the Normandy area.

Exceptional apartment with all the amenities one would want.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment. Astrid warmly welcomed our party of 3. Since we had a car, we appreciated the convenient parking. The decor was unique and interesting. The appliances were modern. It was nice to have a washer & dryer too. The location was perfect for us to take in the Normandy Beaches. The port town was a relaxing environment to walk, dine, & sit by the water. We would definitely stay here again & highly recommend this location to others. Thank you, Astrid for sharing your lovely apartment with us.

When we walked in the door my sisters both exclaimed, "I want to take pictures and remodel my kitchen at home to look just like this.'

The apartment was fabulous! Tucked away in a tiny town on the bay. After 4 days in the hustle/bustle of PARIS - this place was a little haven.

We came to see all of the Normandy beaches and walk the shores our uncle walked on D-Day as a US Army medic.

I can't encapsulate all I would like to say in such short space. The bakery down the street was divine. We ate there 2 times and I would have brought pastries home on the plane, had there been a feasible way. We wanted to put the flower shop next door in a suitcase (some items we DID manage to buy and bring home).

Thank you for the beautiful roses in the hallway. I thought they were peonies based on their huge size, but their distinct aroma interrupted that thought immediately. A rose is a rose.

We will be back in 2 years and hopefully bring our 85 year old dad with us to walk those beaches too. But if that happens, we need a property for 20+ since the extended family will be with us.

Thank you for being a fabulous hostess Astrid. We loved it!!!
