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 Apartment in 2012
Why Liliane Cardin 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 Apartment 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.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Return Home Relaxed and Restored!
From the moment you arrive until it is time to say goodbye you will feel both welcomed and relaxed in your own, immaculately clean home!
The Pool is an absolute dream - warm enough to spend hours in even if it is raining outside, in April.
The area is of course memorable for the impact of the battles that raged across the beaches.
It is also a beautiful & peaceful part of the world, the villages are picturesque and the markets small, but great fun to wander.
Enjoy the fish and the lovely bistros & restaurants.
You will find it hard to beat the wonderful hospitality offered by Liliane & Jean-Pierre.
Si vous avez un vieux rêve et qu'un jour, vous le réalisez alors comme nous, c'est tout naturellement que vous accueillerez chaleureusement vos hôtes et prendrez grand plaisir à échanger avec eux sur les nombreux atouts de votre région :
Traduction de l'appréciation en français :
"Du moment où vous arrivez jusqu’à ce qu’il soit temps de dire au revoir, vous vous sentirez à la fois accueilli et détendu dans votre propre maison, impeccablement propre! La piscine est un rêve absolu - assez chaud pour y passer des heures, même s’il pleut dehors, en avril. La région est bien sûr mémorable pour l’impact des batailles qui ont fait rage à travers les plages. C’est aussi une belle et paisible partie du monde, les villages sont pittoresques et les marchés petits, mais un grand plaisir à errer. Profitez du poisson et des beaux bistrots et restaurants. Vous aurez du mal à battre la merveilleuse hospitalité offerte par Liliane & Jean-Pierre."
Lovely 1st Floor Apartment, with a fabulous Pool!
Loved it! Wonderful location close to all the sights of Normandy. Fabulous indoor, heated, private pool which we used every day. The garden is absolutely huge, like a small park! There are garden games for the kids and more games in the Apartment - we really enjoyed playing French Monopoly.
The apartment is large with velux windows to let the fresh air in. All the facilities you need are provided too, Washing Machine, Microwave, Fridge Freezer etc.
Liliane and Jean-Pierre are excellent hosts and were friendly, helpful and extremely pleasant - thank you for your hospitality!
We would definitely recommend staying at Au Pre Verger, it really is a lovely apartment, in a lovely location. It is clean and well maintained and a very pleasant place to be.
The only things to note are the WIFI is not very good, slow and prone to dropping out, so you'll need to use your data allowance if you're planning trips like we did. If you're over 6ft you'll need to duck down a lot as it's a loft conversion with low ceilings - I am, but it didn't bother me.
The dog is a feisty Spaniel, so you'll need to be a dog lover if you stay here, but Moustique is gorgeous!
So, Liliane and Jean-Pierre, thank you for a wonderful stay that has given us many happy memories, you were great hosts and we'd recommend Au Pre Verger 100% to anyone!
In the meadow orchard: a comfortable holiday cottage in the flavor of smart campaign livened up by the field of birds, ideal for the nature lovers!!!
As indicated in the appreciations above, it is sometimes difficult to reach the WIFI because the property is situated at the end of the line.
Comfortable Accommodation in Convenient Location
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!
Comme indiqué dans l'annonce, le linge de lit n'est pas fourni pour les séjours de moins d'une semaine et est proposé en option.
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.
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.
Perfekter Urlaub bei perfekten Gastgebern.
village bien situé près du debarquement
propriété bien entretenue, cuisine bien agencée ,propriétaire très sympathique et serviable , un chien bien élevé et gentil, village tranquille
En choisissant la labellisation (Clévacances), il nous faut répondre à un certain nombre de critères et notamment celui de l'équipement. Même en vacances et peut-être justement parce nous sommes en vacances, nous pouvons avoir envie de provoquer des moments de convivialité. N'est-il pas plus agréable de le faire avec de la jolie vaisselle par exemple ? D'où l'intérêt aussi de trouver le matériel nécessaire.
