Overview

About the property

Fireplace and confortable main room, stove in Bedroom

This old fisherman's house was completely renovated in 2011, charm and luxurious finishes on all three floors. This is the last but one house on the dock, just in front of two lighthouses in the outer harbor. With its large windows gives you a magnificent sea view from every room, and be grateful to watch the entrances and exit of vessels. This cottage can accommodate two couples with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, or a family with 3 children. Also magnificent view from the kitchen and living room-dining room. His authentic fireplace gives extra warmth to the ambiance of the house, like in open sea but nicely installed on the sofa for windy days.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Port-en-Bessin was perfect. The house is even nicer than the pictures on vrbo. Everything was as advertised and working with the owner and Carole who met us and gave us our initial tour was flawless even though we do not speak French. The village of Port-en-Bessin is a perfect place to relax with shops and great restraunts within easy walking distance. The location is also a perfect base for other sightseeing in the area.

I really can't say enough positive about this house & owner, I would highly recommend to anyone intersted in the lower Normandy area. I almost forgot to mention the stunning sea view right from your front porch! You won't want to leave!

Super gîte

  • 5 of 5

Un super gîte où nous avons passé une agréable semaine et découvert une partie de la Normandie. Magnifique vue et adorable le bruit de la Mer et des Mouettes. Très différent de nos cigales de Provence. Dépaysement complet et très satisfaisant, nous avons eu également du soleil et avons pu faire de superbes ballades notamment lorsque la me se retirait.

Très bonne continuation aux trois Moussaillons. Une petite famille de 5 arrivée des Bouches-du-Rhône le 20 août 2011 et regrettant d'être rentrée si vite.

Port-en-Bessin, june 2011 - Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We have spendt a week in june in this lovely house, and will not hesitate to recommend it. We were 2 adults and to teenagers (17 and 18) and we have enjoyed the possibilities with 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms on seperate floors. We had a wondeful view from all rooms, and the house is places close to shops and restaurants. The city is close to many of the sights in the area, both by foot and car. The house is perfect on hot summerdays, as it don't get overheated by the sun.

Wunderbarer Ort

  • 5 of 5

Ein wunderschönes Haus an einem perfekten Ort. Der Einrichtungsstil aus maritim, modern und antik gefiel uns sehr gut.

Die drei Stockwerke sind perfekt für Familien mit Teenies - sie waren oben und wir hatten unten Kamin und Ruhe...

Überall gibt es Leseecken an den richtigen Stellen, die Zentralheizung hielt alles mollig warm. Wem kalt war vom Spaziergang über den Muschelstrand, der konnte sogar in die heisse Badewanne...

Sabine war sehr bemüht um unser Wohlergehen.

Der Ort ist ausserhalb der Hochsaison die perfekte Mischung zwischen absoluter Ruhe und Lebendigkeit eines Hafenstädtchens. Leckerer frischer Fisch direkt vom Schiff und einige gute Restaurants!

Wir kommen wieder!!!

Satisfaction totale des 3 moussaillons !

  • 5 of 5

Satisfaction totale pour notre séjour aux 3 moussaillons tant pour la maison, le confort, son équipement et aussi son exceptionnelle situation près de la mer et face à l'entrée de l'avant-port de Port-en-Bessin. Une halle aux poissons est aussi près de la maison, ce qui permet dès le matin d'aller choisir son repas du midi et de faire une cure de poissons, de crustacés tout frais descendus du bateau. La maison est aussi très proche de la ville, ce qui permet de faire les courses sans bouger la voiture. La semaine a été un vrai plaisir et nous espérons vivement pouvoir rééditer l'opération.

Cosy Cottage in a prime position on the quayside

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is situated right on the quayside with unobstructed views of the busy fishing harbour.

The property was spotlessly clean and has been tastefully modernised whilst retaining much of the original charm and features of an old fisherman's cottage.It is well appointed with all modern conveniences including a well appointed kitchen.

The house is just a few metres from the town centre with good restaurants very close by.There are good supermarkets within walking distance that provide all that you might need for self catering.

The town of Port is a lively working fishing town and the daily fish market [ just 30 metres from the cottage] is excellent.

Port is perfectly situated in the middle of the D-Day landing beaches and hence is conveniently placed to visit all sites of the Normandy Landings from Utah Beach in the west to Pegasus Bridge in the east and the beautiful and historic town of Bayeux just 20 minutes to the south

There are excellent coastal walks from the cottage in both directions. The Normandy countryside is beautiful and very tranquil.

Sabine the owner of Les 3 Moussaillons was extremely helpful during the booking process and Carole who met and introduced us to the property was most welcoming and informative.

We were a party of 4 adults and thoroughly enjoyed our week in Port.

We would be very pleased to return one day.
