Why Catherine JACOB chose Tracy-sur-Mer
We fell in love with the area, and were very lucky to find this beautiful estate.

Cosy quirky gite for 2.
The gite was equipped with all the necessary equipment and the bed was very comfortable. A lovely garden to sit in after cycling the lanes and tracks around this area.
Thank you very much for your insight on our gite. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Best regards, Catherine.
Charming cottage with nice outside lawn and all needed appliances. Close to Bayeux and Arromanches
Cottage was just fine and appliances were very useful if one wished to cook and do laundry (we didn’t). However, house was cool and damp and we couldn’t get it warmed up via the wood stove (may have been our incompetence). Towels didn’t Dry well from day to day. Had to purchase everything needed e.g. soap and shampoo which was a bit of a surprise. Location was excellent especially close to lovely small, historic seaside town of Arromanches. Restaurant recommendations by owner were spot on and we enjoyed two excellent meals in the town. It was a unique artificial harbor post D-Day and many signs of it are still present. Also close (8 km) to historic Bayeux which we frequently visited to meet DDay beaches tour and view Bayeux Tapestry, etc.
All logistics were handled well by owner and her assistant who met us timely on our arrival. House was clean and ready for occupancy with guide brochures and advice aplenty.
My son slept in the loft upstairs which is a low ceilinged area. He was convinced he heard an animal in the ceiling above him each night walking around for quite awhile. This is something that should be investigated by owner.
All in all, pleased and grateful for opportunity to stay in this lovely cottage or gite as they call it.
Thank you very much for your insight on our gite. Too bad you were not so lucky with the weather which was dreadful. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and had a good time in Normandy. Best regards, Catherine
very comfortable and well equipped. a rural retreat for two.
excellent location for visiting Bayeux and D-Day beaches. We felt very welcomed by Christine.
Perfection in Normandie
Really enjoyed our stay in this cute little cottage. Just a few miles outside of Bayeux made it a great location for exploring Normandie area. Parking area for our car, incredible grounds around the cottage, and don't forget to set the washer water level on low. Really, dishwasher, stove, shower, TV with a collection of DVDs were great. WIFI hot spot could use improvement.
Wonderful review! Thank you very much for taking the time to write it. Merci et à bientôt !
Friendly yours, Catherine
A relaxing stay in a cozy cottage
This tiny cottage in Tracy sur Mer welcomed me, my husband, our two year old son, and my father-in-law for a few nights. It was exactly what I was looking for as a place to stay in the country but close enough to attractions. Our stay was very relaxing and we really enjoyed time spent in the large garden where my son could run and play after a long day of exploring the local area. We made a fire each night in the wood stove and were thankful for the large supply of chopped firewood available to us. As a mother of a young son, I found the washing machine to be quite helpful. There is no drying machine but the large drying rack provided was good enough. We bought food at the local grocery store and cooked almost all of our meals at the cottage in the large kitchen that has plenty of cookware. As far as location, we couldn't have found a better place. A short drive to all of the D-day sites and 1.5 hours to Mont Saint-Michel. Thank you Catherine for renting out such a beautiful cottage and being so friendly via email and telephone!
Thank you very much for your nice words. The weather has been dreadful this year in most of France and I am glad it did not waste your holiday in our small cottage! A bientôt ! Catherine
My husband and I stayed in the lovely cottage for 4 nights. It was very peaceful, quit, relaxing and everything we needed in this cottage. We walked the grounds at night with a glass of wine. It was if we had our own hideaway. The owner Catherine was very helpful. This was our first trip to France and the best part of our trip. We were celebrating our 40th anniversary. Thank you Catherine and Christine.
I am glad you enjoyed our place and thank you very much for taking the time to write this message Madonna! Friendly yours, Catherine
