Great Gite in Great Location
We had a lovely long weekend staying at this apartment while visiting some D-Day sights. The apartment was exactly as described in the listing and in the photos. The kitchen was well stocked, including oils and other pantry staples, in addition to dishwasher tabs, kitchen paper, and bathroom paper. The check in was easy, and they were able to accomodate our late arrival. Thanks again for a great stay!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful house
This apartment is part of a larger house and it was the perfect place for our family! We were there with my parents and our four children and everyone was comfortable and had the space needed. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and there is a grocery store nearby. The host was very responsive to any questions we had. The apartment is very cute and recently updated as well. I will stay here again if we are able to return to Normandy!

5/5 Excellent

Great location. Beautiful home. Everything we needed for 5 people.
Love this town. Close to interesting tourism. Clean and very modern home. Quiet location in beautiful little village.

5/5 Excellent

Our family of 4 stayed here for 3 nights and had an amazing time. . The gite was spotless, quiet and modern. The village was lovely and we went to the daily fish market and some restaurants. We grilled on the outdoor bbq. If you are interested in WWII sites, the Maisy Battery is a 5 minute drive and so interesting and authentic, one of the best sites we visited. Merci!

D day anniversary - Helen and friends
A very well presented house with all amenities. The garden was lovely and the area peaceful and quiet. Because the weather was bad we were able to sit comfortably inside in the evenings. We all loved the town of Grand Camp Maisy. Would stay with Damien again. Thank you.
