Want to come back again...

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property in a lovely location. Astrid was excellent to work with from beginning to end. We stayed in the loft apartment and it was awesome! The décor is amazing and the property spotless. Astrid had great restaurant recommendations and they didn't disappoint. We were in Normandy to tour the D-Day beaches and visit the museums in the area. The evening before our all day tour we even watched The Longest Day, which Astrid had in the apartment, while dining on a baguette and camembert with wine from the grocer within steps of the apartment. We would love to visit this quaint port town again and stay in this same property! Thank you Astrid for offering something so nice!

Wonderful Apartment and Town

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Maison de Matelot was great. We had the first floor apartment for two nights, and it looks exactly as the photos depict it--comfortable and charming. Astrid was very responsive and helpful during the booking and onsite. The town was lovely with friendly people in the bar/tabac, shops, and restaurants. A very good base for exploring the WWII historic sites and towns along the coast. Highly recommend this property.

Paradise en Bessin !

  • 5 of 5

For the second year running my husband and I have spent delightful and relaxing May break at the Maison de Matelot. We stayed in the ground floor appartment last year and are working our way up !!

We love Astrid's sense of style and her welcoming and friendly personality.

Port en Bessin is the perfect base for a short break or a longer holiday. We will be back !!!

Paradise en Bessin.

Beautiful apartment in a small town

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the loft at Le Maison Matelot with my wife for 3 nights. Astrid has done a fantastic job decorating the place, the apartment is beautiful and quite spacious compared to a hotel.

Port en bessin is a lovely seaside village with a great local bakery. It is also well equipped for tourists with several restaurants less than a minutes walk from the apartment. All in all a great base to explore bessin!

Perfect apartment in a wonderful village

  • 5 of 5

Astrid is an excellent host and welcomed us with refreshments at her tea shop. She provided several great recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing. The apartment is spotless and has a well-equipped small kitchen and a marvelous large bathroom. If you need groceries, the selection at SuperU is much better than the small market right behind the unit which carries the basics. Port-en-Bessin was an interesting place to explore with its profound tidal change that left boats stranded in the harbor at low tide and revealed thousands of scallop shells. The church displays model ships in honor of the town's seafaring history. That nautical theme is carried through in the apartment which has clever maritime decor. Parking is free and is located about a block away from the unit. The town is a great location for visiting D-Day sites.
