Property description

The landlady of 'La Maison sur le Quai' welcomes you in 'Un Bateau sous mon Transat', old fishermen's house located directly on the sea front in Port-en-Bessin, Normandy, on the landing beaches. In this stylish gite with charm, design and exceptional sea views, you will enjoy the sea view through the windows, from your bed and even from the shower, and the coming and going of the boats at high tide. At low tide, you can lounge on the sand in the outer harbour, at the foot of the house. Complete renovation in 2011-12, antique furniture and antique sailors’ objects mix with raw materials. New equipment and high degree of comfort. Quiet location. 2 steps away, direct sale from anglers every morning, close to all shops and restaurants, parking in front of the house, free garage and parking nearby. Ideal for 2 couples or a family with up to 5 people: 2 bedrooms (1 double and 1 triple), office, 3 bathrooms, table football. No pets.

In Normandy, in the Calvados, in the heart of the landing beaches, 10 km away from Arromanches, Bayeux and Omaha Beach (American cemetery of Colleville-sur-Mer), in a traditional fishing harbour and marina, genuine and preserved. Port-en-Bessin is particularly known for its Scallop fishing. The Bessin is a very nice region with a great historical richness (Bayeux's tapestry and Cathedral, manor-farms, castles, gardens, abbeys, landing beaches and museums, etc.). Beautiful countryside landscapes and Norman marshlands. On both sides of Port-en-Bessin, the coast allows nice walks along its long sand beaches and seaside resorts from the beginning of the century. The cultural centre of Port-en-Bessin regularly organises visits: auction, boat workshops and semaphore. Many sports...including Omaha Beach golf course on site, hikes, coastal path walks, fishing, walks on the old rigging, etc. 1h30 from the Mont Saint Michel, We fall in love with Honfleur, Deauville, Pays d'Auge, the Cotentin...
