Vacances parfaites en Normandie
From the afternoon of our arrival on September 19(met with cookies and local apple cidre) until our departure just after dawn on September 29, our stay at Mme. Elaine Beriola's home in Ver-sur-Mer was perfect. We were two sisters and their husbands, all born during WW II, wishing to get a better picture of the battle in which our parents' generation participated, beginning on June 5-6, 1944. We were so fortunate to have found Mme. Beriola's property on the Home Away site, which portrayed a most accurate representation of her property, the location of which is on the edge of a picturesque stone constructed village (Ver-sur-Mer) bordered by the fields adjacent to her property which the Allied Forces must have traversed. Using Mme. Beriola's home as our "central headquarters," we were able to make daily trips to all of the invasion beaches, from Utah in the west to Sword and the Pegasus Bridge in the east. It afforded us a much greater appreciation for the area than we had gained from the many WW II documentaries we had viewed. On our way from Paris to Ver-sur-Mer, we were able to visit Giverny, and, later, during our stay, to travel to Dieppe, E'tretat, LeHavre, Honfleur, Deauville and Trouville. Once during our stay we traveled to Le Mont Saint Michel and spent the night in the old walled town of St.
Malo, returning to Ver-sur-Mer via the Contentin Peninsula and Cherbourg. We found the Normandy countryside so beautiful. We visited the Peace Museum in Caen and viewed the thousand-year old Bayeux Tapestry in Bayeux. We did our grocery shopping at the Carrefour in Courseilleus, the Super-U in Caen, and E. le Clerc (France's Walmart) in Bayeux, variously on the way home from our daily motor trips. We looked forward at the end of the day to staying in Ms. Beriola's immaculate yet comfortable and spacious home, where we prepared our meals in her well-equipped kitchen, consuming them at her spacious dining room table and then watching TV where we were able to stream programs in English with our Amazon Fire Stick. We were so happy to discover that Mme. Beriola provides excellent internet access! Believe it or not, we also found time to launder clothes and to line dry them with the benefit of breezes off the nearby Manche. Ms. Beriola's beds are spacious and very comfortable. We slept very well in the quiet environment surrounding her home. The early fall weather was beautiful and we so enjoyed sitting outside on her front yard patio. -30-
Our stay in August 2018
We enjoyed our stay at this property. It is in a quiet location, on the edge of the village a mile from the sea, and backs onto open farmland. We met Nathalie at the property on the first day, who was very helpful. The property was spotlessly clean. The terrace at the front of the property catches the sun in the morning. The property has all the amenities you could require eg dishwasher, washing machine, wi-fi, etc.The property is very close to the landing beaches. The local towns of Bayeux, Corseulles and Arromanches are very picturesque and have lots to see. Further afield, we enjoyed visiting Honfleur and doing the velorail next to the river Orne south of Caen. The kids also enjoyed the Festy land theme park in Caen. We would recommend this property as a good base for a family holiday in Normandy.
Great house and a good location.
We had a great time in Ver-sur-Mer and really enjoyed this house. The master bedroom is lovely with a lot of light, and our two teenage boys enjoyed the other two bedrooms. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need to cook, and the dining and living areas were spacious and comfortable. Be aware, however, that even though the "amenities" section says that linens are included, you will be charged an extra fee per person to have sheets and a cover. We were also surprised that there was an extra cleaning fee that was not included in the price of the house. The fees for linens and cleaning need to be paid in cash upon arrival. The unexpected extra fees and needing to make our beds after arriving from a long travel day left a bit of a bad feeling. The house, however, is lovely and we enjoyed walking in the area -- about 1km to the little village or about 3km on a path through the fields to another village.
Je pense que vous etes de très mauvaise foi.C'est indiqué dans le contrat ainsi que dans équipements de la maison, ce que vous avez payé ne représente pas draps et couverture mais une parure complète couette linge de toilette et torchons pour la cuisine et nous changeons à chaque nouveaux vacanciers protèges matelas oreillers et traversin ça représente énormément de travail et habitant a 800 km de la maison je le donne à faire.Je pense que vous avez trouvé une maison impéccable et irréprochable et pour celà 2 personnes font 3 heures de ménage chacune et ce que vous avez donné ne représente qu'une participation (145 m2).Vous n'etes pas obligé de prendre option ménage mais vous devez laisser à la maison dans l'état que vous l'avez trouvée.Rectification vous avez payé en partant et non en arrivant.Le fait de payer ne vous dispensez pas de vider les 2 poubelles de la cuisine et de nettoyer les W.C avec la balayette( pas très agréable).Vous ne dites pas que lorsque vous etes arrivés a 20h30, j'ai eu la délicatesse de vous offrir un plateau comprenant brioche,lait, confiture ,thé ,café et chocolat...Enfin j'espère que vous garderez un bon souvenir de la maison et de la Normandie.Quand vous etes arrivé il y avait un rouleau de papiers de toilette dans chaque W.C et du sopalin dans la cuisine et vous auriez du en remettre en repartant!!!!!
A great holiday home in an ideal location
Had a most relaxing break. Nathalie met us on day 1, charming lady explained everything. The house was very clean, well equipped, warm and comfortable. 'hot' hot water plenty of it, good whoers and bathroom, beds very comfortable, kitchen has all you need. Wifi too. Located in easy reach of local village with boulangerie, patiserrie and charcuterie, local tabac and welcoming bar. Museum in Ver-sur-mer. Beach in easy reach. Ideal for walks, children or taking the dog out. Short drives to Bayeux and Caen, plenty of supermarkets in easy reach. Proper rural France. highly recommended..
Beautiful Vacation home in the heart of Normandy
We cannot say enough good things about this beautiful Norman house! Our family of six stayed here for a week in August. We were welcomed by Katherine and Phillipe because Nathalie was unavailable. The very next morning Nathalie came by, welcomed us and wanted to make sure we had everything we needed.
It was the perfect place based on what we wanted to see and do. Our mornings began with coffee and pain au chocolat outside on the front patio while the kids played in the enclosed yard. And they ended with very tired children and a quiet dining room where we could sip wine and reflect on our day.
We visited the WW2 American and Canadian Cemeteries, swam at Juno, Omaha, and Gold beaches, and saw several museums regarding the liberation from the Allied forces. We spent 1 day visiting in Bayeux and visited the Tapestry museum and the Notre Dame Cathedral. On our last day, we drove to Mont Saint Michel and spent the day.
Ver Sur Mer and the surrounding villages are very tranquil and picturesque. The people are super welcoming and very helpful. If you have small children, there is an amusement park filled with bouncy houses in Courseulles Sur Mer, next door a huge park with playscape as well as a carousel at the other end of the port. If you love seafood, this is the place for you! If you love to cook, buy your seafood at the beautiful fish markets and cook it at the house. The kitchen is fully equipped.
After long days of sight seeing, my husband, father, and I sat at the dining room table drinking wine, eating bread, terrine, and cheese whilst the children chilled out on the couches and watched a movie. It is a very comfortable home for a family. If needed, I was able to do laundry and hang it on the line or use the drying rack upstairs. We all slept very well here and when we make our way back to Normandy, we will most definitely stay again. Thank you for a memorable week in your beautiful home!!!
Propre, tranquille , confortable, bonne location
Nous avons été enchantés de notre séjour. La maison était propre, accueillante, et bien située dans un village charmant. Très confortable pour les 3 couples que nous étions. La cuisine bien équipée, une salle à manger pouvant assoir 3 couples très confortablement et 3 chambres très tranquille, la nouvelle chambre en particulier. Les salles de bains étaient propres, et avec une bonne pression qui rendait les douches agréables. La douche principale peut être un peu étroite pour un standard américain, mais très agréable, La terrasse nous a permis de nous faite profiter du beau temps. Je conseillerais cette maison à d'autres amis. En résumé, je retournerais dans cette maison si j'ai l'occasion de revenir en Normandie.
J'aimerais également signaler la grande grande gentillesse de la propriétaire.
Je suis heureuse que vous ayez appréciez ma maison, et je vous en remercie.Bonne continuation et peut etre à autre fois. Il est sur qu'une semaine c'est juste pour tout visiter.
Très cordialement Eliane Beriola sans oublier vos amis
