Carentan/Normandy Beach landing accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house and location to live and view the main Normandy beach landing sites. We had 5 great days travelling from the house to all the major sites and then back into Carentan at night where there is a fine selection of restaurants for meals. We took our 2 grandchildren with us (10/14) and spent an afternoon in Carentan public swimming pool which is the best I have ever been in. So clean and a tremendous "wave track" which takes you round extremely quickly.

The owners of this property live next door and are on hand for any little thing you made need to ask. They will however Leave you completely in peace if you want privacy. Local huge supermarket is at the end of the street for everything you may need. Would return to this house In an instant.

Magnificent home!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a vacation home near the Normandy beaches, look no further. This rental is a dream come true. It is impeccably clean, completely modern, spacious, and so comfortable. Our party consisted of four adults, and our stay could not have been more perfect because of this beautiful home. We would return in a heartbeat -- and next time we will plan to stay longer! Thank you to the wonderful owners!

Superb jumping off spot

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic accommodation with great hosts. M. and Mme. Lecaplain provided everything we needed, the house is fitted out and furnished to a high standard and the log burner warmed the house right through on the cool days in March. The house is located just off the main road through Carentan and is ideally placed for exploring the landing beaches with off road parking and a 5 min walk into town. The house had great showers and a lovely kitchen/dining area and would be ideal for small families as well as just for couples. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay there and hope to go back again very soon. Massive thanks to M. and Mme. Lecaplain for everything, we'll be back ;)

This is a lovely house. It is perfectly located for sightseeing in the area. It is very well placed to visit the D Day landing beaches and museums. It also has the best equipped kitchen I have seen in a vacation rental with knives that will actually cut things! The weather was warm for November so we did not need to use the wood stove, but if we had there was certainly everything we needed there. The house is comfortably furnished, and well within walking distance of the center of the city and the market. The owners were lovely to work with and although they did not have a lot of English and we had even less French we communicated well enough. I definitely recommend this adorable house to anyone. It seemed very well equipped for families with children too. We would definitely return there ourselves if we get the chance. The market, which is on Mondays, is great. We bought beautiful veggies and apples, bread and cheese there. We found a larger supermarket on the outskirts of town and filled in our groceries there. We really enjoyed the area, Carentan, and this beautiful little house.

A perfect base to explore Normandy

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I have been taking our motorcycles on holiday for the last 11 years and this year we decided we wanted to tour the Normandy beaches and be able to ride some good roads. This house provided us with the perfect base for our 5 day trip. Well designed, spotlessly clean, great facilities, very friendly owners, parking for our bikes and walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants in the town it ticked all our boxes and at the end of the trip we were very sorry to leave.

We would have no hesitation in returning.
