Omaha Cottage - Rue Bernard Anquetil
Very relaxed, spacious and comfortable cottage in a superb location.
Hope to get the chance to return soon.
Perfect French Farm House!
Omaha Cottage is beyond lovely! We were 7 adults ranging in age from 25 to 84 and everyone was smitten. The kitchen is well equipped and worked great for a family dinner each evening. The living room was warm and cozy for after dinner games (and the occasional fire), bedrooms were comfortable and pretty. The garden/yard was perfection. Roses climbing the walls, fresh herbs to snip for meals. It was put to good use each evening with games of boule. We have stayed in many HomeAway digs (England, France, Italy) and this was my favorite. Thank you!
Wonderful Stay in a fascinating part of Normandy. Ideal location for sampling some amazing history.
The Property was really comfortable, with everything we needed on hand. A lovely welcome from Christelle who made sure we settled in, as well as comprehensive instructions for the house and the appliances. The heating was just right and the beds comfortable. We visited the Invasion beaches, Honfleur and Bayeux during our week as well as walking Omaha beach. Golf at Omaha Beach club is very enjoyable- though a tough course to play in the winds we had on the first time we played it. If you want to cook, there’s some wonderful fresh fish and shellfish available from the quay at Port en Bessin. Mme. Bonnet was very helpful with information and always responded promptly to emails. Everyone in our group loved this property and voted it the best we’ve stayed in during our visits to France over the last ten years.
beatiful property, well furnished with a garden well suited to our grandchildren. and within easy
We all enjoyed the house and garden very much ( age range 3 to 79 ). Easy reach of the glorious beach, museums , shopping and restaurants. Weather was a bit disappointing. Although the finances worked out fine in the end, it is tiresome to have to retain 600 euros as a deposit until departure and then have to change it back into £ on return to UK. This is not a requirement we have come across anywhere else. Although we did not particularly mind paying a cleaning charge we were unaware that there would be such a charge until we were leaving and had already spent some time clearing up ourselves..
Authentic French country home
We enjoyed our week at this lovely French stone house. The property is in the same village as the American WWII cemetery. There is a large eat-in kitchen and a comfortable living room with a fireplace. The gardens are a delight. We had most of our happy hours in the garden and enjoyed picking fresh herbs for our dinners. Thanks for allowing us to use your beautiful home.
Near Port en Bessin (5 kms) and Bayeux (15kms), the house is located in a highly tourist area. In addition to the American cemetery at Colleville / sea and the landing beaches (Omaha Beach, Utah Beach and Arromanches) you can visit Bayeux, its magnificent Cathedral and its famous tapestry. A little further, you will discover Caen with William the Conqueror's castle, the abbeys to Men and Women, or in the countryside, many castles and manors (Priory Saint Gabriel, castle Fontaine Henry, Vaumicel the manor, etc ...)
If you like the exceptional gardens, do not miss this Vauville in the Cotentin.
Finally, a little further and accessible by highway, the extraordinary site of Mont St Michel (120kms).
It is also a fishing area and you can feast on fresh fish of the night in the hall of Port en Bessin.
You will be able to visit the auction (on reservation) and maritime semaphore.
In sports, you can enjoy the magnificent Omaha Beach for swimming, sand yachting, kite-surf on and parasailing. In the campaign, you can try horseback riding.
If you are a golfer (or if you want to become one) do not miss the exceptional course of Omaha Beach Golf Club,
with 2 times 18 holes, a course with several holes overlooking the sea.
Finally, for tennis enthusiasts, two courses are within 50 meters behind the house and can be rented by the hour.
