A rustic traditional French cottage with lots of character, an open fire and a very personal feel. The cottage is well located for the beaches (nearest 7 minute drive), fascinating history of the D-Day landings (all around!) as well as all the other lovely things which Normandy has to offer - orchards, cheese, Bayeux, etc. to name but a few. The small hamlet has 2 bars (one also stocks some groceries), a restaurant and an underused playground which we used lots! It is an easy 1 hour drive from Caen and slightly less from Cherbourg. Travelled with young children and teenagers.
First stayed here in 2013 for a week, returned the following year for another week, we have now booked for later in 2015. Love this house, very quaint, church pews around the dining table, old cast iron pans hanging above the kitchen area, relaxing around the open fire in the evening after visiting many attractions in the area. If you want the latest mod cons to continue your hectic lifestyle then this isn't the place for you. No TV blaring out, the kids (11 and 14) actually had to spend time talking in the evening, and they loved it. David did provide Internet on our 2nd visit which was handy. Large garden area with outbuildings storing various forms of entertainment including bicycles. Utah beach a two minute drive away, Ste Mere around 15 mins by car. Be warned David, if I ever win the lottery I will be prising this little gem off you.
