About The Owner

We were born and raised here, in this little corner of Normandy that is Bessin. The countryside, the swamps, the sea do not keep secrets from us. We grew up in nature, with the animals.

We spent our professional life, nearly 40 years, in the Paris region, where we were able to build relationships through sports and volunteering: welcoming, entertaining, sharing, is naturally all a part of our daily lives.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2012

Why The Owner chose Osmanville

In Pré-Verger Here, we are opening a new page of our history.

Here, our new dream was born, and we have been vacationing here for a little over 20 years: One day, we will welcome vacationers into our home and they will share our love for Normandy.

What makes this cottage unique

We bought this property to return to nature and to enjoy the rhythm of the seasons. This large, comfortable house, with large bay windows, was built on a fenced-in, tree-filled, 10, 000 sq.m lot. The apartment for rent is on the first floor, in the attic, and was built for you to have a great vacation. It was built for 5 people and can accomodate two families (toilet and shower areas in every bedroom, two kitchen areas).

Located not far from the coastline, you can enjoy the pleasures of both the sea and the countryside. After a day of discovering the wonderful Bessin region, you can enjoy the swimming pool and its relaxation area, as well as the garden and the comfortable apartment.

Comfortable Accommodation in Convenient Location

  • 4 of 5

Au pre verger was a welcome respite after days of traveling, and our stay was too short! Liliane went out of her way to make us comfortable and to provide everything we needed. However, travelers from the USA need know that linens for bed and kitchen are only provided at extra cost. We didn't get to use the lovely pool because our days were filled with seeing battle sites of WWI and WWII with our grandson. And we loved the dog, just like my husband's childhood friend, Stubby!

Lovely Owners

  • 3 of 5

We have mixed feelings about our recent stay at this property. Firstly the owners are lovely and accommodating people. The pool area and gardens are both exquisitely beautiful. However, our first and major concern was the fact that all four smoke alarms had been removed by the owners added to this there being only being one unlocked exit from our upstairs apartment accommodation and that was opposite a kitchen which we feel left this property a major risk to life if fire broke out. Also despite paying a high price of 565 euros for our one week off peek stay we were also asked to pay a further 50 euros for electricity & water, something we've never done before in many years of booking Gites & cottages in France, This added to the smoke alarm being removed would stop us from booking this accommodation again.

Owner's Response: Our certified holiday cottage Clévacances answers the current safety standards in France but also those imposed in England (validation by the inspectors of Cottages 4 you). Smoke detectors must be removed before the arrival of this English family to watch their maintenance and their smooth running. We call back that the obligation to install at least a smoke detector by accommodation will be compulsory in France from March, 2015. We can only regret that, during their stay and on the occasion of the exchanges and/or friendly moments when we shared during the week, this family did not make us not their concern for which we would quickly have brought answer and solution. The apartment is equipped with 3 detectors of Of a cover anti fire in the kitchen near the spaces of cooking, a guardrail at the top of the staircase, and of the panels concerning emergency exits. The swimming pool answers safety standards - displays and is regularly controlled by the sanitary services of the department. Concerning the price list of rent, it is about that posted on the site on average season which does not include the fixed price heating. Appréciation du livre d'or : Thank you for a lovely week, very pretty setting and the children have enjoyed the pool.

Owner's Response: Wenn man am Vor-Obstgarten ankommt, beginnt die Ferienzeit. Wir haben alle Anstrengungen unternommen, um sicherzustellen, dass alle, jung und alt, ihren Aufenthalt in unserem Ferienhaus genießen können. Es muss gesagt werden, dass der Park und das beheizte Schwimmbad sind perfekte Orte für Entspannung und Familienspiele.

Eine wunderschöne Woche

  • 5 of 5

Wir können uns unseren Vorgängern nur anschließen und bestätigen, dass es sich bei Liliane und Jean-Pierre wunderbar wohnen lässt. Alle Beteiligten, das heißt Eltern, Kinder und Hund sind voll auf ihre Kosten gekommen. Die Wohnung ist liebevoll und zweckmäßig eingerichtet, alles sauber, der Pool war toll und der Garten natürlich traumhaft. Unser Hund konnte stundenlang mit Moustique, dem Hund vor Ort spielen und toben, der Rasen bietet sich für Fußball und Federball an, gegrillt haben wir auch und oft konnten wir uns kaum entscheiden, ob wir lieber im Garten bleiben oder Ausflüge machen. Die Gastgeber sind sehr liebe Menschen, die man gleich ins Herz schließt und mit denen man sich zum Glück auch hervorragend auf englisch unterhalten kann, wenn man kein französisch spricht. Wir bekamen auch immer wieder gute Tipps für Ausflüge und Restaurants und der krönende Abschluss für unsere Jungs war, dass sie am letzten Abend, während wir packen mussten, mit Jean-Pierre Fußball gucken durften. Für alle Hundebesitzer: die Hunde vor Ort sind beides Rüden, ein junger Spritzer, der Energie ohne Ende hat und für die Bespaßung der Gästehunde zuständig ist, und ein älterer Herr, der ab und zu mal kommt und nach dem Rechten sieht. Der Garten ist tatsächlich komplett eingezäunt und wir hatten unseren Vierbeiner auch an jedem Strand dabei. Also, alles in allem : eine DICKE Weiterempfehlung und ein großes Dankeschön an Liliane und Jean-Pierre !!!

Séjour au top !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons beaucoup aimé notre séjour au Pré Verger, M. et Mme Cardin sont de formidables hôtes et leur propriété est magnifique. Nous avons beaucoup aimé les espaces verts, la piscine intérieure chauffée, la proximité des plages du débarquement et d'un marché au poisson à seulement quelques minutes le matin. L'appartement est idéal pour une famille, il est facilement divisible en deux pour garder l'intimité la nuit si nécessaire ! Nous recommandons fortement !!!

Wir wurden als Gäste begrüsst und als Freunde verabschiedet!

Lilliane und Jean-Pierre waren äußerst sympathische Gastgeber, jederzeit hilfsbereit, niemals aufdringlich.

Die Wohnung ist liebevoll und geschmackvoll eingerichtet, es fehlte an nichts. Alles war sauber und gepflegt.

Das Haus hat ein wunderschönes und riesiges, komplett umzäuntes Grundstück, wo unser Hund den ganzen Tag mit den anderen Hunden spielen und umherjagen konnte.

Unsere Kinder waren fast täglich im Pool, welcher sauber und angenehm warm war.

Von hier aus gibt es unzähliges zu entdecken...

Die Landungsstrände Utah/Omaha Beach, Bunkeranlagen, Museen und Soldatenfriedhöfe sind gleich um die Ecke.

Insgesamt haben wir die Normandie mit ihrer wunderschönen Landschaft, leckerem Essen & Trinken und dem Charme der Menschen lieben gelernt.

Lilliane und Jean-Pierre haben wir in unser Herz geschlossen!

Wir kommen gerne wieder!
