Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in August and had a lovely time.The apartment was spotlessly clean,loved the decor and the views. We enjoyed watching the fishing boats going out.Port en Bessin is a lovely place to stay, with plenty of places to eat.Geraldine was the perfect host,nothing was too much trouble. The wine and chocolates were much appreciated. Fireworks on Friday night were brilliant.

Perfect location for exploring historical and cultural sights in Normandy

  • 5 of 5

Perfect stay in a lovely idyllic location with plenty to do and see. Accomodation exceeded our expectations being tastefully decorated well equipped and spotlessly clean and our hostess Geraldine was very hospitable and could not be more helpful. With access to the Normandy beaches, the Bayaeux Tapestry and plenty of museums there was enough to keep anyone interested. Port en Bessin also has its own unique charm and an unbelievable 26 restaurants to choose from.

Wish we could have stayed longer. Geraldine is a gem and provides everything you need for a comfortable stay. The area is charming, with plenty of things to do and close to D-Day beaches. I highly recommend the apartment.

Comfortable, convenient and relaxing apartment very close to WWII sites!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Geraldine was a wonderful host! She greeted us with treats and even a small present for our daughter! The apartment was very comfortable and very CLEAN. Everything looked brand new and hardly used. Wifi was very fast, which is important for us because our little one has to watch Sesame Street in the mornings :) The view from the apartment was outstanding! We enjoyed watching the boats and hearing the water from right out the window. You can walk to town easily and parking was not a problem at all. There was even a hiking trail across the bridge and a fish market right across the street. The Super U is a great place to get groceries and it was a short drive up the road. We drove here from Germany with our 2 year old daughter to see the WWII sites and could not have been happier with the location and accommodations. Thank you so much for helping to make our holiday complete! -Karen

Beautifully decorated and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Geraldine is a magnificent decorator and hostess. The apartment is very clean and comfortable. Be prepared for carrying luggage up four flights of stairs and plan to take your showers in the mornings as the water gets cold in the evenings after 9PM. Well located for exploring Normandy attractions and we would stay again.
