About Mr Langlois Jean Francois

Our house is located right next to our shop, in which we sell regional products, delicatessen, wine, and spirits, including Calvados. If you need anything, we won't be far.

Mr Langlois Jean Francois purchased this house in 2007

Why Mr Langlois Jean Francois chose Port-en-Bessin-Huppain

We have decided to rent our house in order to receive tourists who want to discover our beautiful region. Our activities are focused on tourism and the discovery of our region.

What makes this house unique

The house is situated at the heart of the region, only a few metres away from the harbour, the shops, the restaurants, and the regional activities. It is the reflection of the fishermen's houses in which a spirit remains, giving it a soothing atmosphere.

A decorator brought her own delicate touch. On the ground floor, you enter the house, through a corridor that leads you upstairs and to the rest of the house, as well as to relaxing area, a fitness room, a shower room (which includes a sink, a shower and an separate toilet), and a baggage room. Upstairs, the large spaces allow you to go easily from the living area (the kitchen open onto the dining room) and the living room, where you can enjoy the crackling of the fire coming from the closed fireplace. This living room consists of a comfortable sofa which can be turned into a double bed at night.

The two bedrooms are on the second floor and add to the soothing atmosphere of the house, with great spaces under the roof structure. There is also a shower room with WC on this floor.

The direct vicinity with the shops is very convenient and you can even buy fresh fish caught during the night less than 100 m away from the house.

A few meters away, you will have access to the harbour and its activities, and, during summer, great fireworks are launched from there.

Every Sunday morning, you can go to the local market, which is very popular in the region.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

This is a very good quality property with everything you will need for your stay.All the fittings are of excellent quality and there is ample provision of utensils and crockery. The ground floor has a utility room and useful gym area with an exercise bike and some exercise equipment. The house is located just 2 minutes' walk from the numerous restaurants, bars and shops on the quayside. An added bonus is the secure gated parking next to the house which is at the rear of the owners' shop. The owners are very friendly and welcoming and always willing to help if needed. Port-en- Bessin is a small fishing port so there is ample opportunity to sample the local seafood. It is well-placed for visits to the invasion beaches and museums and is only a few minutes' drive from Bayeux. The surrounding countryside offers lots of opportunities for walking and cycling and beautiful views over the Channel. Would definitely recommend this property and we hope to visit again soon.

GREAT GEM !! Even Better than Photos.

  • 5 of 5

Three-story, very comfortable house, right in the center of Port en-Bessin-Huppain. Two bedrooms on third floor, two good bath rooms. One on first floor, one on third floor. Attractive living room , dining area and extraordinarily well equipped kitchen should you prefer to cook. Dedicated gated parking on premise. Otherwise there are a number of fine small restaurants nearby. Designed with taste, modernity and comfort in mind. A word of caution: stairs make this house potentially not suitable for the infirm elderly. We had no problems and are all above 75 years of age. (The owners, the Langlois family, runs a terrific store just around the corner and are very responsive. Do check it out: Cider, wine, calvados, cheese, and numerous other delectables. All very tempting.) We would gladly return.

Port en-Bessin is perfectly located for touring the Invasion sites, as well as Bayeux, Caen, Honfleur, and the Cherbourg areas. Go to the tourist bureau across the picturesque harbor; the bureau is particularly helpful as well.

Wonderful week in a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was a perfect size for 2 couples. It was beautifully furnished and had everything to make our stay feel like home. It appeared to have been completely

renovated recently with new windows, floors, and a modern bathroom. The kitchen and dining space was spacious and perfect for cooking, conversing, and eating. We spent the majority of our time here. The only caution I can write is there are to sets of stairs to access the main living space and the bedrooms. If you have any physical handicaps with climbing stairs this may be a challenge for you. It was not for us. We loved Port-En-Bessin, a small fishing village. We walked to the fish market and bakery every morning and bought fresh fish and pastries for the meals of the day. They have a fantastic farmers market on Sunday that you cannot miss!

The location of Port-En-Bessin was ideal for day trips throughout the Normandy region. A nice surprise for my husband was a 27 hole golf course in walking distance from the house. I cannot say enough about how beautiful and quaint this town is and how much we enjoyed our stay!

Very well located and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

My 12 year old grandson and I enjoyed our stay at the Langlois's rental property in Port en Bessin. The two bedrooms and two bathrooms provided great separation when some quiet time was needed but the welcoming kitchen and living area was very pleasant for both of us. Mr. Langlois kindly provided some firewood so we could light a fire on a rainy night. The kitchen is very well equipped with cooking wear and dishes if one should choose to make meals however that is not necessary as Port en Bessin has good restaurants within a few minutes walk. Groceries and a good bakery are also very close by and it is not necessary to drive for supplies. The area is very convenient for Normandy beaches and other sight seeing. I would certainly stay there again. On site parking for my car was a real bonus as one did not have to worry about finding a spot on the narrow street. Very happy with my choice.

In Normandy, PORT EN BESSIN HUPPAIN is a lovely fishing harbour located on the Channel, in the heart of the historic sites of the Landings. This typical fishing harbour is surrounded by OMAHA BEACH and its history (7 km away), ARROMANCHES and its artificial harbour (11 km away), and BAYEUX, the first FRENCH city to be liberated (7 km away). It is easily accessible by the four-lane highway and the railway going to BAYEUX. You can also land at the CAEN airport, which is 35 km away. Enthusiasts can also come by way of the sea. The village and its harbour are surrounded by the countryside of the BESSIN, with its rich agricultural past, its monumental farms, its mansions, and its castles. The renowned 36-hole OMAHA BEACH golf course is famous to all french and foreign enthusiasts. It overlooks the harbour, the sea, and the magnificent valley of the BESSIN, in direction of BAYEUX. There are many little roads going across the region, which makes its exploration on a bike very easy.

Other activities: sand yachting and, during summer, painting exhibitions, guided discovery of the port and its activities, and tour of the shipyard.

Golf: The OMAHA BEACH Golf Club (named after the landing beach) is situated in the municipality of PORT EN BESSIN HUPPAIN. It has 36 holes and is located on the edge of a cliff, which gives a splendid view over the sea, if you choose the SEA course, or over the countryside, if you choose the amazing MANOR site. You can learn about all the advantages of this world famous golf club on its website. There are introduction and beginners courses available. There is also a restaurant with terrace that will allow you to enjoy the amazing view over both the sea and the surroundings of BAYEUX while savouring the delicious sea food from PORT EN BESSIN HUPPAIN.
