You will find a confortable and charming apartment in a nice location! Everything has been prepared to make you feel relax!

The Space

2 minutes away from Caen second world war museum (Memorial) the flat is situated in a quiet street of the small shopping center of the Folie Couvrechef area: all facilities and shops in a kind of little peacefull island! Outside games for kids all around and nice walks if you want.

We put at your disposal 3 bicycles for adults (+baby seat) and 2 for teenagers as you are in the greenest area of Caen. All around: the bird's hill with its artificial lake and its rosery, the Memorial's gardens, the poet's gardens...Wether you are here as a visitor or working you will appreciate the peacefull environment and our confortable and welcoming flat.

This is a 3 bedroom flat of 105 sqm with a mezzanine provided with sofabed which serves as 4rth bedroom if needed with its little nearby.There is a bigger bathroom and a nice living room with a great modern kitchen: you will have both independence and conviviality. The flat is completely equiped so you just have to bring your personal effects. Wifi connection and a few family games will make your stay even more enjoyable.

Go out to the balcony and enjoy the vue: if you are lucky you will see a rainbow as on the picture or a nice sunset!

Within a 5 or 10 minutes you have access to the town center driving through the avenue of Courseulles. Visit the Castle and have a quick look to our beautiful city hall. Shopping and numorous cultural activities. Then you can taste the specialities from Normandie or elsewhere at quai Vendoeuvre in front of Bassin Saint Pierre which is our Marina or in very close in the Vaugueux Street.

If you do not have a car, it is not a problem as you just have to cross the Würzburg place to find the bus station (lines 2,14 and 18 ). The immediate access to the ring of Caen will also facilitate the drives to the normandy landing beaches.

Caen Carpiquet airport is situated at 10 minutes by car. Also 10 minutes away from the railway station (Caen Rives de L'Orne).
Wellcome in Caen and have a great time in Normandy!

Guest Access

Guests will have access to the entire flat of course. Easy check in, easy check out.

Interaction with Guests

I wellcome my guests personnaly in 95 % of the cases. I show them the flat and explain quickly the use of household appliances and show them the place where the bikes are. I try to facilitate their stay providing the information they need and put different guidebooks and maps at their disposal.
In most cases, people can leave on their own leaving the keys inside the flat.

The Neighborhood

I appreciate all facilities in this quiet area of Caen. I love the gardens around and the proximity of the Memorial.

Getting around

By car, take rue des acadiens and go to the very end: you can park on the free parking.

By bus with lines 2, 14 and 18 within 200 meters. .A bit further line 10.

Other Things to Note

Equipment for baby: little bed, high chair, babyseat for one of the bikes, stroller

  • Marie is a very warm and welcome personality. We had a really great time in this really big appartment. Everything you need is there. The d-day memorial museum is great to visit and at walking distance from the appartment. Thank you Marie! It was very nice too meet you!

  • Très chouette appartement proche de tout. Marie est une hôtesse adorable. De mes quelques expériences Airbnb celle-ci a été la plus agréable de toutes !

    Merci Marie.

  • Marie's place was a great launching point for 3 days in Normandy with a focus on D-Day. And Marie herself was a great communicator and very willing to help with things like car rentals. On night we were arriving and we were running late she proved to be a tenacious communicator even when we weren't able to connect due to a phone issue (ours.) Very comfortable flat with walking access to bakery, grocery store and a couple restaurants. Gladly recommend!

  • We enjoyed our stay at Marie's flat in Caen. (Two middle-aged couples) The flat was very clean and spacious and well located for visiting Caen, Bayeux and the entire Normandy coast area by car. Marie was a kind and gracious hostess and she provided us with lots of helpful information about the area.

    Please note that the flat is located on two floors and there is just one toilet in the unit.

  • Marie and her lovely flat helped make our stay in Caen great. Would happily recommend to friends or return myself if I'm back in the area. Marie gave us a warm and thorough welcome, her home is clean and quite nice - especially for a family or small group like us.

    The family room and kitchen/dining area are quite nice for sharing a meal or hanging out over a glass of wine in the evening. Beds were comfy. Conveniently located a 2 minute walk from a bakery and grocery store and a 10 minute walk from the Caen memorial. Parking was easy and Marie left a helpful map and binder with recommendations on beaches, restaurants and sites to visit.

    Response from Marie:

    Thank you Michele. The bakery near the flat is open on sunday morning and the other one called "Noël, La Boulange" situated at Portmouth's roundabout - 2 minutes away - is not open on sunday at all indeed.
    Opening hours of "Noël La boulange" are in the yellow carpet in the flat as well as their menu as they propose hot meals at midday.
    In case of arrival on sunday afternoon and you feel like eating french bred or cakes then go to "Le moulin de Pierre" (adress is 6 bd André Detolle) which is open from (phone number hidden) every day except thursday (completely closed on thursday).

  • I'm glad I chose to stay at Marie's flat, she was lovely, patient, and resourceful. Even though, I arrived late in the evening, she waited and picked me up. The place was perfect, and was equipped with more than I needed. Also she had a ton of useful maps, plans and recommendations. 10/10 I would stay again. You will have a pleasurable stay in Caen.

  • Our family of four came to Normandy by ferry from the UK. Marie kindly arranged transport for us from the ferry port to her flat in Caen. She also made arrangements to help us get to Bayeux for our DDay tour. Her flat had everything we needed, was impeccably clean and best of all came with free use of bicycles. The wifi connection was super fast and strong all over in the spacious set of rooms. There were groceries and two fabulous bakeries a short walk from the door. Marie also drove us to the train station. She is extremely kind and generous.

  • Très bel appartement, spacieux, agréable, avec tout le confort nécessaire. Idéal pour les voyages en famille, entre amis ou pour une escale. La chambre pour enfant a remporté un gros succès, avec ses jeux à disposition et son lit bus anglais.
    Très bien situé avec tous commerces dans le lotissement, que ce soit alimentaire, médical etc, et situé à deux pas du mémorial.
    Nous remercions Marie pour son accueil chaleureux et ses bons conseils.
