This little cottage is beautiful. One house away from Utah Beach. I wish we could have spent more time there and enjoyed the beach and the cottage. The weather wasn't great, but it is February. I would stay here again if I get the chance to come back. Loved that it was so close to so many WWII history sites. I learned a great deal about D-day. Thank you Anne-Marie for taking such good care of us.

Beautiful house, beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this lovely home steps from Utah Beach. We only had a couple of days there, it was a great spot to see the d-day landing beaches. The house had everything we needed and was clean and spacious. Anne-marie was a very kind host who made sure we were comfortable and had access to everything we might need. She even baked us a cake! I wish we had more time to enjoy the beach and cute little town. Next time!

The Ideal Family Property Close To The Beach

  • 5 of 5

Having been a regular visitor to Normandy for the past 15 years I knew the area well, so i was really excited to come across this property that gave the opportunity to stay on Utah Beach.

We took our 2 year old daughter for her first trip to Normandy, the house was perfect for her as the layout was set on one level, the garden was completely enclosed and the amazing electric shutters on the windows created complete darkness for her to sleep.

The house itself was very fresh and modern, with the kitchen having just about everything needed for any budding cooks. The bathrooms were particularly nice with the highlight for me being the walk in shower which was great to unwind in after a long hot day exploring.

The property is set on a private road so no through traffic, the proximity to the beach was perfect with a pathway 20 meters away from the house. This pathway lead right onto the most perfect quiet sandy beach and for all you D-Day fans out there to a part of the beach that was actually used during D-Day.

The owners of the house actually met us and introduced us to the property which was a nice touch, they were very friendly and helpful and yes the rumours are true Cake is involved... They have clearly taken the time to decorate the house tastefully for its surroundings and to a very high standard.

We would thoroughly recommend this property and we will certainly return on our next visit to the area.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend this property. It was perfect for our D-day anniversary visit. We could walk to Utah Beach museum and every other site was nearby.

The gite has everything needed and more. It it bright and airy and was a joy to return to each evening. It has safe parking for a rental car which was a plus for us.

The owner is very welcoming and left goodies for our use. That too was a plus since we were very tired from flight and drive from Paris.

At the end of the week we were sorry to leave.

Lovely villa in an evocative location

  • 5 of 5

Anne-Marie's property was beautifully decorated, fully equipped and spotlessly clean. Everything we needed was there - even beach towels - and a generous food and drink welcome pack which included a lovely home made cake. The location of the property is unique - we felt transported back in time - lots of WW2 references in the beautiful village of Ste Marie du Mont and then there is the thought provoking Utah Beach museum and the magnificent Utah Beach itself. We very highly recommend this villa.

Wonderful cottage in historic area.

  • 5 of 5

We are two couples who enjoyed a delightful four nights in this carefully maintained and fully equipped house. With a beautiful garden area and deck off the back of the living room, there were plentiful areas to relax. One minutes over a dune to the expansive Utah Beach provides a great place to walk, run or just stare at the ocean. The house is a 10 minute walk to a great museum about the D Day landing.

In fact, it is also 12 km. from St Mere d'Eglise, an important sit in the DDay landing, and a tremendous museum about the airborne troops who landed, fought and died here. Other sites are within a couple of hours. Bayeaux, a beautiful old city, is an easy 50 minute drive.

After touring each day, the house was always welcoming.

Our host, Anne-Marie, welcomed us with a fresh baked cake. She was readily available by telephone or to come by if there were any problems.

We all really loved this place, and we recommend it highly.
