Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Great location for people watching and making the most of a busy harbour with restaurants to suit all tastes. This property is all about the outside space and the large patio is great from midday onwards. Loved it.

Lovely property in a fantastic location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at October half term and were delighted by the location of the property and the views over the harbour and towards the sea. We loved watching the fishing boats going in at night. We even managed to relax on the sunloungers on the terrace one afternoon in the Autumn sunshine. The property was clean and well presented and had everything we needed for our stay. Astrid met us at our pre-arranged time and explained everything we needed to know clearly. It was our second visit to this area and we enjoyed visiting all the D day sites and museums and were moved when we visited the many cemeteries. I would certainly recommend this house to others as its location can't be bettered.

Premium holiday spot in Port en Bessin

  • 5 of 5

We've come to know and love Normandy well during our 30 years of travelling in France, and this was our second stay in Port -en-Bessin. We chose this house for its superb location and were not disappointed; wonderful views from the excellent, spacious, glass-roofed balcony, looking over the fishing-harbour and out to sea. A very short walk to all the small shops, cafes and restaurants around the harbour, and easy drives to the many nearby places of historic and cultural interest. Le Havre Portais is very well-equipped and comfortable (though I don't understand the current French taste for awkward steel-framed dining chairs - they were also in the last house we rented nearby) Oh..... and those noisy, creaky stairs !! But a lovely, clean, and delightful house.

Merci à Astrid pour son accueil chaleureux à notre arrivée et pour un départ très facile. Merci aussi à Mme Viret pour son assistance en ligne. Nous espérons revenir.

A perfect holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Port-en-Bessin is a lovely place for a holiday, and this must be the best house in Port-en-Bessin.

The town itself is a busy fishing port. It's small and pretty, but not too picturesque. It's nice to wander around, with a good walk up to the top of the cliffs on each side, it's easy to shop in, and it's close to places people like to see (it's on the boundary between Gold and Omaha Beaches from D-Day, and is only 15 or 20 minutes from Bayeux, with its famous tapestry and wonderful cathedral - and there are quite a lot of things within reasonable striking distance (we went to Mont St-Michel one day, for example, and to the Suisse Normande for another)).

This house, Le Havre Portais, is just next to the harbour basin, almost directly above the lock-gates which keep the basin full when the tide is low. From its terrace you can watch all the business of the port, and you can get bread in five minutes from the excellent baker just across the water, and basic groceries from the Proxi which is just as close (they're very friendly, and sell very nice fruit and cheese, as well as a lovely cheap local - literally Portais - cider, which has a delicious sharp apply taste). There's also a fish market on the quay every day, where you can buy fish caught the day before by Port's own boats - also just five minutes away from the house.

We were very comfortable in the house itself. The terrace was the really great thing for us: we ate almost all our meals out there, watching the sun shining on the restaurants and cafes opposite at breakfast, and basking in the sun ourselves at lunch and dinner. But everything inside was excellent too. The sitting/dining/cooking area is excellent for a family: you can all be together while meals are being prepared or cleared away. Two of the bedrooms are good-sized doubles; the third is quite small, but also nice.

Astrid, who looks after the key, was very welcoming, and speaks excellent English. Really, if you want a holiday in this part of Normandy, and your party is the right size, you couldn't want better.

Wonderful House in Port en Bessin

Incredible location, very spacious and modern accommodation with everything you would need for a relaxed stay. The owners management of the booking and payment process was excellent.

The meet and greet with keys (Astrid) on time and no fuss, very welcoming. Totally recommended. Port en Bessin is a treasure.

Top location

  • 5 of 5

Nice house with a cosy view on the harbour of Port-en-Bessin. The house has plenty of place, clean and nice situated in the centre. We can recommand this property to all the people who wants to be in the centre of D-day history and shops and restaurants very nearbye.

Fraai huis met gezellig zicht op de haven van Port-en-Bessin. Het huis biedt veel ruimte, is schoon en liigt midden in het centrum. We kunnen dit huis aanbevelen voot iedereen die midden tussen de D-day geschiedenis wil zitten en ook nog eens winkels en restaurants erg dichtbij willen hebben.
