About this property

Modern Comfortable 4 Bed House with Secure Garden.. This cottage/gite is in a coastal setting.

Located close to the centre of one of Normandy’s picturesque harbour towns, and adjacent to an impressive golf course, Maison du Golf provides an ideal base from which to explore this historic part of Northern France. Comfortably furnished and boasting a decked patio area and garden, La Maison du Golf provides accommodation for up to 8 guests. Port-en-Bessin’s fishing tradition is reflected in the range of quality seafood outlets to be found in the town. Nearby Bayeux is internationally known as home to the famous Bayeux Tapestry, a must-see for visitors to the region. Normandy’s more recent history can be encountered at the D-day landing beaches of nearby Omaha and Arromanches, and their museums which recount the Allied invasion of June 1944. The region’s capital, Caen was home to William the Conqueror back in the 11th Century, but now offers visitors a cosmopolitan shopping experience in addition to historic tourist attractions.

A lovely house in a very quiet area - I’m not sure if anyone actually got up and went to work in ththe surrounding houses, if they did they were very quiet!
We did some lovely walks from the house and regularly walked in the town to buy croissants and pain au chocolate from the patisseries. We didn’t eat out due to food allergies but driving about was easier than I thought and history in the area was amazing to see first hand.
The house is very set up for English speakers with a uk freesat box making us forget we weren’t at home but making us feel at home.
My only advice - Take your own teabags.

A lovely property, with everything we needed. Set in a very quiet part of the Town but with in walking distance of the Port. Great location for travelling throughout Normandy.
Felt like a home from home, the board games were great, we spent a couple of evenings playing games with the children which we seldom get chance to do at home.
I would definitely recommend. Sue responded quickly to my enquiries and all transactions went smoothly.

Owner response

Great location and excellent accommodation, very quiet. Would highly recommend as booking is very easy and communication with the owner is swift making payment easy. The key safe system is an excellent idea, making arrival and departure times easy without worrying about meeting a key holder at set times. The house was cosy and very much home from home with English kitchen appliances making everything easy. FIRST CLASS.
