Haven by the Sea
This was quite honestly one of my family's favourite places to stay of all time! The house was beautiful - wonderful spaces, beautifully decorated, everything we needed and more! The location was second to none and we wish we had booked for longer. Laurence was kind and helpful and available if we needed her. There are not many places we would return to, but this is certainly one! Most highly recommended!
Beautiful little house in a superb location
If anything, the house is better than the photos on the website, spotlessly clean, and is probably the best equipped holiday rental we have ever stayed in. The location is great with fantastic views over the harbour, and weather permitting there are superb sunsets to enjoy from the terrace. The owner is charming and was a great source of recommendations of places to visit, and local restaurants of which our favourite was Le Vauban where we ate three times. Port en Bessin is a great base from which to explore the area and to visit WW2 museums and memorials. It's a very short drive into Bayeux, and an easy drive into Caen, Falaise, and the Suisse Normande. I would highly recommend this property.
I rented three cottages along the Quai Letourneur for a family vacation to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday. My in-laws stayed in this cottage and had a fantastic week. The cottage is quaint, beautiful and authentically restored and the location and view from the cottage is exceptional. Laurence, the owner, was professional, welcoming and helpful throughout the stay. Port en Bessin was our favourite location in France, exceeding Paris, Nice, the Loire and Provence, in our opinion, as the best location. The village is located 10km from Bayeux, one of our favourite towns, and Normandy is a gourmet's heaven. Do not miss the Sunday markets in Port en Bessin, they were one of the best we experienced in France. Thank you Laurence for the wonderful week for ensuring that and my in-laws had a great time - and like all in-laws they are not easy to please :-)
Charming and beautiful!
This small town is absolutely perfect. Well maintained with a range of lovely shops and wonderful restaurants and this wonderful cottage is the perfect home base from which to explore. It is tiny but extremely well appointed. Very nice appliances, dishes, and other accoutrements. We cooked in several nights and often breakfasted on fresh pastries from the bakery literally around the corner. Fresh fish (we had wonderful scallops) is available across the street at the Fish Hall. The harbor views and the sounds of the sea birds lull you to sleep. Tasteful decor and very comfortable beds. The top floor tub is narrow, but the sea view from the tub makes up for it! Only one narrow unlit mirror in the top floor bedroom too, so bring a mirror of your own if you depend on one. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. (Our coffee pot malfunctioned and she had a new one here that night! With an offer of free coffee on her at a local cafe if we needed before her return!). We would love to return here some day. It was the perfect base for D-Day touring, Honfleur, and Bayeux, and so much more. There are narrow circular stairs for the three floors, and steep stairs to the wonderful terrace and laundry room, so not for the less nimble!
Absolutely charming beach house!
What a wonderful holiday we spent in Port-en Bessin this October!
We only have positive things to say about Laurence's wonderful beach house, which is decorated beatifully in a maritime manner and at the same time is equipped with all the modern equipment you need to relax and enjoy yourself.
In this case, pictures don't lie - on the contrary things are even better live than in the pictures!
Add the the charm of the wonderful town of Port-en -Bessin and Laurence's helpful and kind personality and you have the recipe of a wonderful and relaxing holiday.
Wonderful Seaside Escape
Absolutely charming location directly on the waterfront in Port en Bessin. The kitchen is well stocked to take full advantage of the fish market 100 feet from the door and the terrace overlooking the harbor is great. Port en Bessin itself is an ideal centralized location for exploring the invasion beaches and many of the other treasures of Normandy
