We spent 12 nights in Geraldine's wonderful apartment with an incredible view of the port, colorful parade of boats, the endless sea. Her apartment is superb -- all magazine-worthy -- so very easy to spend lots of time inside looking out. Port-en-Bessin is in a great location for the D-Day sites and touring Bayeux and Caen. The #70 bus goes back and forth several times daily to Bayeux and the American Cemetery. We would be delighted to return to this area and stay in Geraldine's gorgeous apartment again. Wish we could give six stars! Highly recommend!
This is a very nicely re-done old farmhouse, incorporating some of the old characteristics with modern conveniences. We were greeted by one of the owners who had a fire built for us and showed us around. This home was larger than we needed for a couple, but was conveniently located to areas we wished to see (Normandy beaches about an hour away, Mont St. Michel about 45 minutes). The only downside was that certain areas were not as clean as they could be (the kitchen, for instance, with a sticky substance on the can opener, leftover grease in the microwave, and shelves that were a bit dusty). I am a clean freak, so some of this might not bother someone else. It is also helpful to remember that old houses are tough to keep clean, but these areas were ones that didn't have to do with age. The house sits on acreage, with cows right out front. There was no noise and beautiful sunrises. I would stay here again.
