The Owner Recommends

Bricquebec Market; Best in Region!

A lovely Monday morning market which is enormous in the summer and previous guests have assured us, it is certainly the best in the whole area. Local cheeses, wines, meats and organic vegetables as well as a couple of delicious saucisse and frites stalls! Livestock early on. Sit in one of the several coffee bars which surround the main square and watch the world go by.

D-Day Landing Beaches:

We are close to the D-day landing beaches: if you are visiting Normandy, these are well worth a visit.

Just Ask!

We are a British couple having retired from being a Head Teacher and Assistant Principal. We came here to live a quality life and we understand how precious holidays are for couples and families. As such we want all our guests to have the best holiday they can. We will always try to advise on the best beaches and activities for little ones, teenagers and couples. The best restaurants to meet your needs and what activities you can do on a sunny and rainy day. Our website has lots more information than we can write here.
