The Owner Recommends

Bayuex Tapestry

Bayeux is a wonderful medieval town full of interesting street's, shops, and restaurants plus the tapestry, the tapestry is actually an embroidery of wool on linen made in the 11th century 70m long and 50cm high. It recounts simply but with a wealth of detail, how and why William the Conqueror invaded England on the 14th October 1066. Unaccompanied visits to the exhibition and audio visual rooms, all in 11 different languages.

D-Day Beaches

The property is within 1 hour away from most of the D-day landing beaches, as well as the Memorial Museum.

Mont Saint Michael

Le Mont St Michel is one of the wonder's of recent times, the original Abbey was conceived in the year 708, it has been a monastry, citadel and even a prison, although one of it's most famous inhabitants was a certain Mere Poulard, a cook who devised hundreds of recipes in her time, her Omelette was probably the most famous (a great day out).

Moulin Restaurant

The Moulin Restaurant, is about 5-10 minutes walk away from the cottage, they have a very good menu, especially for lunchtime, very good food, and reasonable prices. It's next door to a working water wheel and museum, all set in a nature reserve, with a lovely stream running through it.
