Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Amazingly charming two bedroom apartment that lives up to the pictures. Wonderful location in town (nice grocery store next door, great bakery around the corner and terrific seafood restaurants within walking distance) and very convenient for Normandy highlights - Omaha Beach, American Cemetery and Bayeux are all within a 20 minute drive and Mont Saint Michel, Rouen, and others are easy day trips.

There are so many thoughtful details throughout the apartment - well stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, good wifi connection, delightful books, comfortable beds with great linens, Ralph Lauren towels, soap and shampoo for the shower, etc. The owner, Astrid, was very welcoming and was available to answer any questions (not that we had any after her helpful introduction to the apartment). Such an easy stay!

We had such a lovely time that we can't even imagine staying anywhere else in Normandy. We can't wait to return!

Vancouver. Canada.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We arrived in this charming fishing village right in the heart of D-Day countryside.

The tourist to locals ratio was low - a bonus !. All attractions were only 20-30 Km away by car.

Accommodation was "compact" but very adequate. Low ceilings + lots of stairs needed careful attention.

The kitchen was well stocked ..... the beds were comfortable .... All like "home".

Would recommend this spot for four ..... Kids not too young + adults not too old !!

Very comfortable apartment in a wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and well equipped two bedroom apartment in a wonderful location. Port-en-Bessin is a fishing village (only 9 km to Bayeux!) with many excellent shops and restaurants, a daily fish market on the wharf and a weekly street market on Sunday. It is perfectly located (between Omaha and Gold Beaches) for D-Day attractions and Mont Saint-Michel, Saint Malo and Honfleur are easy day trip options. A good grocery store is next door! The unit's kitchen is very functional and well stocked. The bathroom is also modern with a shower but no bathtub. The beds are very comfortable. Astrid, the owner, was charming and helpful. Looking forward to returning to this unit someday.

Quaint apartment in Port en Bessin

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 nights at this property, allowing us to see the landing beaches and the countryside of Normandy. The apartment was beautiful and situated perfectly next to the canal. Astrid was a charming and helpful lady which added even more to the weekend.

We wouldn't hesitate to return or to recommend this to anyone looking for a small, quiet village by the sea in Normandy, centrally located, and with all the comforts and amenities you would ever need.

Very cute - great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at this apt near the coast. The apt was very cute and clean, and was perfect for our family of 4-plus it was well-equipped with coffee maker, W/D, hairdryer, corkscrew, etc. Astrid was very accommodating -- met us to show us the apt when we arrived and then again when we were departing to return our deposit. This was a perfect spot for doing a tour of the D-day attractions; we also had a car and did a day trip to Mont St-Michel and Bayeux. There are cute local restaurants and stores, although things do tend to shut down at a fairly early hour each evening. We highly recommend this apt and would happily stay there again! As mentioned by others, there are stairs if that is an issue.
