The Owner Recommends

Mirabelle is the perfect base to see the many historic World War 11 sites, Maisy Battery and Pont du Hoc are the nearest, 2 minutes and 6 minutes respectfully. Omaha Beach and the American Cemetery just a few miles further along the coast.

Bayeux

The beautiful historic town of Bayeux, so much to see, the Cathedral, Tapestry, wonderful shops bars and restaurants. .

Mont St Michel

A day out to Mont St Michel is always wonderful day out. Take in the old town of Villedieu les poeles en route and see all the Copper foundry that recently supplied the new bells for Notre Dame Cathedral Paris and Bayeux Cathedral. Or Granville another picturesque seaside town.

Falise

The birthplace of William the Conqueror. This imposing Castle holds a wonderful journey into Medial history. With individual digital tablets you can view what life was like in 11th Century France.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mirabelle. It is in an ideal location - a short trip from the ferry port (Cherbourg), supermarket a few minutes walk away and the fishing town of Grandcamp Maisy just a little farther.
Beaches are great for family activities and obviously the D-Day sites, museums are all easily accessible. If you're looking for D-Day sites, don't miss Maisy Battery just up the road - well worth a trip.
Louise made us feel welcome from start to finish and was always available to help. The property was clean, tidy and well equipped.
Highly recommended.

Couldn't fault the property, location, facilities or owner. It was a real pleasure to be welcomed to France and the owner couldn't have been more helpful right from the booking process to the day we left. Situated in an ideal location for getting out and about to see the sights, the property is clean, comfortable and welcoming. Looking forward to going back again soon and would highly recommend.
