About Colin & Sue Peabody

We are a mid 40's couple with one young daughter who enjoy visiting France and the whole Normandy area, so much so we bought a place there!

The apartment we have is very comfortable and family based but isn't a crèche! It has a lovely modern, clean feel and we hope you will enjoy your stay, we want our guests to relax and enjoy the Normandy experience.

We spend lots of time in the area so have gathered lots of information, plenty of which is in the apartment to help our guests decide on where they would like to best spend their time. We are always willing to talk to our guests prior to booking and would welcome enquiries by telephone.

Colin & Sue Peabody purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Colin & Sue Peabody chose Port-en-Bessin-Huppain

Ideal location central to the historic landing beaches, but not entirely dominated by the D-Day landings, it never feels too far from any of the main attractions in Normandy. The quiet residential area is perfect to enhance the relaxing experience.

What makes this apartment unique

Our apartment comfortably sleeps up to 6 people, so often we have several generations of the same family on holiday together, or maybe 2 families holidaying together - the flexibility of the accommodation and the space means this makes the apartment a very cost-effective way to accommodate a larger party of people.

However, if it's just a few people the space of the apartment means it feels very comfortable and frankly "large" compared to other holiday rentals - a real home-from-home feel rather than the usual cramped spaces sometimes associated with holiday lets.

Clean Apartment in Great Location!

The apartment was just the right size for our group and was in a great location for all of the sites we wanted to see in Normandy! The unit was clean and the owners were very friendly and accommodating during the entire process. I highly recommend!

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

A great place to stay for Nrmandy D-Day landings. Loved the fishing town of Port en Besin. Great market on Sunday. Nice restaurants. Bayeux short drive away. April is a good time to visit as the crowds have not yet descended.

Property is quiet and close to beautiful Omaha golf course.

Colin easy and good to deal with.

Would have no hesitation in booking the property again.
