Port-en-Bessin-Huppain Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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.

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.

Erholung mit Meersicht am Fischerhafen

  • 5 of 5

Wir (2 Erwachsene um 50J. mit 14-jährigem Jugendlichen) haben den Aufenthalt im sehr geschmackvoll eingerichteten, neu renovierten Ferienhaus direkt am Vorhafen von Port-en-Bessin sehr genossen. Am Morgen mit Sicht aufs Meer aufwachen, schöne Spaziergänge über die Klippen und bei Ebbe dem Strand entlang, Besichtigungen (Bayeux, Landungsstrände, Museen, Fischereihafen), golfen auf dem nahen Golfplatz, abend fein Essen in einem der zahlreichen und feinen Restaurants im Ort, das alles ergab einen extrem erholsamen Urlaub bei mildem aber nicht heissem Wetter und wenig Regen. Die Vermieterin hat uns gute Tipps für das Programm gegeben und das Haus war sauber, die Übergabe/Abgabe pünktlich, freundlich und unkompliziert. Das WLAN funktionnierte einwandfrei. Wir können einen Aufenthalt im "les 3 miussaillons" wärmstens empfehlen.

A unique experiece! Together with my Family I spent the Easter Week at Les Trois Moussaillons and the Cottage really lived up to all our expectations, the original is even better than promised by the photos - the rooms are really large and the view is to die for! You wake up and get the Impression you are on a cruise ship somewhere on the ocean. The old fisherman's Cottage has been very tastefully renovated, resulting in a unique combination between old and new elements. Even in Colder and stromy spring weather you feel cosy inside thanks to a good heating and an open fire. The place is absolutely quiet but you are nevertheless in the middle of the town and have an easy choice to spent a relaxes evening with a take-away seafood plater at home or Chose one of the local Restaurants which are all at easy Walking distance, as well as the Shops. Port-en-Bessin is actually a living fishing port and not only a Tourist attraction, and you find a lot of interesting places to visit at an easy distance of up to 50 km.

To sum up: we highly recmmend this Location also for autumn and spring vacation on the coast and we will return one day!

Dépaysement garanti !!!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour. La maison est idéalement située, propre, bien entretenue et conforme au descriptif. Port en Bessin est un village vraiment sympathique. Tous les commerces sont à proximité (la halle aux poissons est incontournable!!) et les alentours permettent de visiter des lieux superbes et chargés d'histoire. Je recommande vraiment cette location.

Merci encore à Mme Rousseau, très disponible, et à Mme Gibert pour son accueil !
