Exceptional apartment with all the amenities one would want.

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!!!

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!
