The accommodation can sleep eight people sharing four bedrooms and four bathrooms. A farmhouse kitchen, large dining room and comfortable lounge along with a large private garden and parking area, complete with stone barbecue will ensure your group will have all the space, resources and comfort to enable an unforgettable visit to a remarkable region. Located within the American Airborne Sector of Operations on D-Day, 1 Le Port is within the heart of the early morning airborne assault and just a ten minute drive from Utah Beach. The house itself was used as a makeshift field hospital during the first three days of the Battle for Normandy when paratroopers of the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions were treated for their wounds. As guests of 1 Le Port you are welcome to peruse and view the selection of books and DVDs through which you can learn more of one of the world's most incredible military operations.
Stuart and Jennifer Robertson are a British couple who moved to Normandy in 2004.

It is the incredible history of the region that brought Stuart and Jennifer Robertson to Normandy. Our home is now a wonderful base for visitors to explore the region around them. Every item you would need is here, we know that because we lived here for eight years and have completely furnished the property as if it were our own home.
Both Jennifer and Stuart have experienced many holiday homes in the region. We have taken all the best features of those places we have stayed ourselves and incorporated them into, what we would consider, as not a gite, but a home from home.
I stayed at Le Port at the start of July 2016 to watch the Tour de France that was passing through the area with a group of friends.It is very well equipped and feels more like a home than a holiday rental.Everything we could possibly was there.The location is very convenient for visiting the D-Day beaches and Mont-St,Michel.The House is not far from Ste-Mere-Eglise for convenient food shopping and a few early evening drinks,but we also loved the peace and quiet and spent most evenings around the bbq.I would definetley stay there again.
The nearest beach is located just 15 minutes drive from the house.
