The cottage benefits from a beautiful large garden, with bbq equipment, and is excellent for relaxing and eating in on those warm summer nights! There is parking at front of house.
Normandy really is the perfect place to visit as you have a great choice between seaside and countryside. The seaside boasts stunning coast lines with beautiful cliffs and long sandy beaches, while the countryside is packed with thatched cottages, and traditional farms!
The house benefits from an Ideal location for touring Normandy beaches. It is just a 20 minute drive to Omaha Beach, and as well as being scenically beautiful the area is also steeped in history. This historic beach was the primary point of landing on June 6, 1944, for the entry of American forces into World War II and saw some of the most intense fighting in the entire war. You will also see an interesting sculpture by Anilor Banon right on the beach called "Les Braves".
We are also approximately a 35 minute drive to Bayeux. In Bayeux you will find the Bayeux Cathedral which towers over the entire town. The exterior is surrounded by the helpful informational signals on stone or wood blocks, explaining aspects of the church's construction or architectural features. The interior has some excellent views of the architecture, statues and murals, and there are several (empty) crypts you can visit beneath the church.
