About Liliane Cardin

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.

Liliane Cardin purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Liliane Cardin chose Bayeux area

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.

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!

Sehr gerne wieder

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind sehr zufrieden mit unserer Wahl gewesen. Sind schon am überlegen wann wir das nächste Mal kommen;)

Der Herr und die Dame waren sehr freundlich und fragten täglich ob es uns gut geht und standen für Fragen immer zur Verfügung. Sie beherrschen sehr gut die Englische Sprache.

Die Wohnung war sehr hübsch eingerichtet und von der Größe optimal. Wir waren dort 2 Erw. + 2 Kinder.

Leider waren wir so viel unterwegs, dass wir den wunderschönen Garten kaum genutzt haben aber auf den überdachten Pool konnten wir nicht verzichten.

Das Domizil ist also sowohl für diejenigen geeignet die gerne in Ruhe Sonnenbaden und schwimmen als auch für die, die Museen und andere Sehenswürdigkeiten bevorzugen, denn es ist alles super schnell zu erreichen und der Strand ist auch ganz nahe! :)

Absolut zu empfehlen

Séjour très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Appartement confortable, superbe propriété avec un jardin immense tout équipé (terrain de pétanque, pergola, bbq, jeux...) et bien sûr la piscine chauffée et couverte bien agréable par grand soleil ou temps de pluie !

Liliane et Jean Pierre ont été très accueillant, disponibles et discrets. Notre fille a été ravi de visiter tous les matins le grand potager et le poulailler et de ramasser fraises, radis et oeufs frais !

On recommande.
