Great home base in the French countryside!
3 Days in Normandy
Easy online booking and communication from Guillaume. Peaceful location and property good size for the four of us. Close to all the sights by car and set in beautiful countryside
Great location and House
The house was very clean and comfortable. The surrounding area is beautiful and really captures the feel of the small towns throughout Normandy.
The house was an easy drive to many D-Day tourist locations.
Quiet, beautiful retreat
An easy drive to Omaha beach and other sites, we chose this house to experience a little bit of country side as we toured through D Day sites. Most of our meals we ate out in Bayeux after our tours, but one night we did manage to plan an easy meal and cook in this large kitchen. You will be 20-25 min away from a grocery store. We very comfortably slept 4 adults, and enjoyed the living areas together. Beds were on the harder end of the scale, but we were so exhausted after our tours that I think we slept well regardless. One thing we did double check and prepare for weeks before our arrival was renting our linens and a cleaning fee—be aware of those extra costs when booking, they’re subtle in the text. Everything was very clean and water pressure was excellent. A lovely country experience.
wonderful place to stay
This is a very nice quintessential stone country french house in the farmlands of Normandy, about 15 minutes from Bayeux and 15 minutes from Omaha Beach. The location is exceptionally charming, the house is spacious and very clean, with excellent furnishings, bath, laundry, and kitchen. The house is located in the countryside, in a very private setting, with a barn, other out buildings, and beautiful fields, but is a very close drive through the farmlands and little villages to Bayeux and the D Day beaches.
very close to Bayeux and the D -
Everything we could possibly need
We choose this particular cottage due to its excellent location for the Normandy beaches. The property had absolutely everything we needed for a comfortable stay and was very clean and well laid out. It's blissfully quiet there but with easy access to local stores in Bayeux. The skies are also beautiful at night with little light pollution which is great for stargazing. Overall we were delighted to have stayed and would look forward to returning one day. A prefect break.
