About the Owner
We are a family who likes the good life and have furnished our Normandy house accordingly. We have two teenage children now, but we have been holidaying in Beuzeville since the youngest was in a baby car seat and have found it always has great appeal - even before we were lucky enough to be able to have a private pool and tennis court!

Honfleur beach (10 mins,), nice walk, views of La Havre are not that great
Deauville and Trouville beaches (30 mins). Deauville has a fabulous sandy beach, over 3km of sand, a beach sports centre plus horse riding, crazy golf, a lovely tennis Club with over 20 courts, many of them Clay, a famous art deco board walk, chic shopping in the town centre, two famous racecourses great restaurants and a Casino.
Trouville is most famous for its wonderful fresh fish market, and for Cafe Central

45 minutes from Caen (ferry from Portsmouth)
1 hr 30 minutes from Dieppe (ferry from Newhaven)

Beuzeville is 2.5km. Honfleur is 10minutes by car, Pont Audemer 10 mins by car, Deauville and Trouville 30 mins, the Cider Route is 40 mins, Rouen is 45 mins and the landing beaches are 1.5 hours, as is Paris.
There is a file in the house with recommended restaurants/activities locally and around the region. Everyone (first visitors) always asks us if there are supermarkets they can visit on the way to stock up on goodies and essentials. Although Beuzeville is a relatively small town, the Carrefour supermarket (on the road to Honfleur) is very well stocked, it even has a live tank for lobsters/crabs and the wine selection is very good. There are 5 boulangeries (we cycle into town every morning to get fresh bread), a fishmonger, butcher and deli. There is an excellent creperie (it does more than just crepes). There are several bars in the town centre as well (which you could also cycle to), so if you want a real slice of French life, you can just stay local, and you won't miss out on any creature comforts.
We have spent summers in Beuzeville when our children were very small and visited the zoo in Cerza, near Lisieux, where some white tiger cubs have just been born, we have been to Disneyland Paris, Parc Asterix (much preferred, more rides, less shops), there is also Festyland for the young. We also played Crazy Golf in Deauville and watched them take their first steps in the sea in the shallow waters. They came on the 'cider route' with us and innocently drank apple juice - many of the cider producing farms pproduce locewly apple juice as well, and offer tastings.
Now they are teenagers, we go Go Kart racing at Deauville, we ride on the beach, go horse racing (it's family friendly), play tennis on clay courts and pretend we are Rafael Nadal - well my son does. I believe there is a new bowling alley there, and on the way home there is a tree-top adventure course called Val des Cimes. In Pont L'Eveque there is a water sports lake.
