We were working & living just outside London before taking the decision to leave our careers take the plunge & move here to Normandy, we had no plans to start vacation rentals...it just sort of happened! For me it is the answer to my dreams as I had over 15 years in the Hotel & Catering Industry training as a Hotel Manager...I always yearned for my own hotel...so this is as good as it gets!
Almost 13 years later we are thoroughly enjoying running our business,we are passionate about this hidden area of France and offer more than just a vacation rental, we are more than happy to share with you where to go, what to see, how to get there, we've struck a deal with a local dealership to hire cars - we have devised a WW2 tour which we will give you at no charge and we'll make reservations for you at restaurants.
We have 4 rental vacation properties, our beach house on Utah Beach which is 10 minutes away from where we are based, has 4,bedrooms & 3 bathrooms with sea views and direct access onto the WW2 Invasion Beach Utah Beach Normandy, in the village of Sainte Marie du Mont the 1st village liberated (Band of Brothers) right opposite the church we have a lovely 2 bedroom stone town house... then, here where we live we have our 2 couples only units on our little 'farm' where we have 4 dogs, 8 cats, (all rescues), 2 Llamas, 3 Alpacas, 2 sheep, 2 goats, a kune kune pig, chickens & our old faithful goose now 10 years old...
We give great value, secure parking as many DVD's as you want, TV, dogs to play with, books to read and we can give masses of tips re the area...as I say we're not just a rental!

We rented this wonderful beach house for 2 weeks from July 6 to July 20, 2013. There were 10 of us --- 8 adults and 2 children, and the accommodations were ideal. The common area including the conservatory was perfect. We ate dinner in every night, and the kitchen was well equipped for us to prepare gourmet meals. The beds were all comfortable and linens impeccable. Our grandchildren … See more

Would recommend this location to everyone. Tansy and Mike are perfect hosts with a very good knowledge of the area. The property is perfectly situated to all the WWII historic sites. The property is well appointed and feels like home.
