A beautiful true home-from-home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly wonderful holiday at So Sweet. Everything at the cottage was perfect and it could not be better equipped. Severine met us on arrival to acquaint us with the cottage which was greatly appreciated. The games room with the table football and full size pinball machine was a particular hit with our children aged 8 and 6. As for the location, it is close to Omaha beach and the American cemetery yet still only 15 minutes from

Bayeux. A true gem!

Stay Here if You Have Kids!

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming, spotlessly clean, comfortable home near the D-Day sites - just a few minutes from Omaha beach. The neighborhood is delightful and our kids didn't want to leave the gardens and game room. We stayed here with our family of 7. Our 5 kids thought they found heaven. I loved how clean and comfortable it was. We spent time in Bayeux and took a WWII tour. This home was convenient to everything we needed. Severine made our large family feel welcome and obviously takes great care of this place. This home and location was one of the highlights of our 2 weeks in France. I can't recommend it enough.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 10 days at this lovely cottage. It is certainly the best holiday rental we have ever stayed in over the last 40 or so years. It was spotlessly clean, comfy, beautifully decorated (I just loved the red walls) and so obviously well cared for. It had everything we could possibly have needed for a relaxed holiday and if you have young children there are lots of toys, books and DVDs to keep them entertained. The games room was a hit with us adults on the one wet afternoon we had! We laughed so much playing table football! The garden is lovely, again with lots for the children to play with, (our grandsons would have loved it), and sunbeds/chairs and tables for all. The cottage is well sited in peaceful countryside and is perfectly located for visiting all the WW2 landing beaches. There are a couple of restaurants nearby but as the cottage had every utensil needed it was easy to self-cater. Good supermarket about 15mins away. Mme Severine Bichot is a delightful young mother and it was a pleasure to meet her and her family. We really cannot recommend this property more highly for a perfect stay in Normandy.

Perfect Cottage, Perfect Hostess, Perfect Location!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect cottage for touring WWII sites or just spending time in the country in France. Set in the quite countryside but just minutes away from Port en Bessin, a great little village on a harbor that has bistros, restaurants, bakeries, grocery, and perfect view of the harbor and channel. Spotlessly clean and with nice sized rooms equipped perfectly. Lovely garden and outdoor space. Bathrooms were large and LOTS of hot water. Severine was lovely and responded quickly to every inquiry before and during our stay. Even found a 13th century church overlooking the channel just a few steps down the lane. Sooo worth looking for!! We highly recommend this adorable cottage!!

It really was "so sweet"

  • 5 of 5

My family had a delightful stay in this French cottage. The property was exactly as advertised and it had an addition that thrilled the kids - a new game room, complete with pinball machine and Fussball table.

The home was very clean and bright. It had all the charm you would expect of a French cottage and the surrounding gardens were a joy to explore.

It's location the heart of the Normandy area was ideal. It enabled us to see all the invasion beaches, museums and other historical sights with ease. After a full day, it was a great pleasure to return to our home away from home.

Madam Bichot was extremely friendly and offered great advice on local restaurants and things to do.

I would certainly recommend the property to friends and would happily stay there again in the future!
