Cottage in Cormolain, Nr. Bayeux, Calvados, Normandy, France - Peaceful Location, Private Parking, Garden, Terrace, Good Facilities, Free Wifi Internet

Marguerite is a detached stone cottage, set back from a quiet lane, with views across the Normandy countryside from all windows.

This traditional cottage, recently renovated and redecorated, offers good accommodation including free wifi, UK television, and modern electric heaters. Outside there is a sunny terrace, garden and private parking. The English caretaker lives nearby and is happy to answer questions before or during your stay.

Less than 10 minutes away is the town of Balleroy, famous for its château, while the coast, with its wealth of D-Day memorabilia, is a 35 minute drive. Also nearby is Bayeux, home of the famous tapestry, while Caen (45mins), offers all you would expect from the regional capital. The cottage is an excellent base from which to explore the area, and there are wonderful opportunities for walking or cycling on the doorstep. Further afield is Mont St Michel. There's a regular train service to Paris from Bayeux taking only 2 hours. You will find information in the gite to help you plan your trips out.

About the Owner

Hi I'm Stephen - I've lived & worked in France for the last 20 years. I'm an agent commercial (property agent) which is quite different from my former career in the UK. I've been self employed here for 17 years & my work has taken me around some beautiful parts of this region. Still much to explore and never get tired of it.

Excellent little cottage, great holiday

  • 5 of 5

A nice cottage with real French charm, clean & comfortable with modern appliances. Easy enough to find, good directions, English caretaker dropped by and gave great tips on stuff to do in the area, nice to know he lives a few minutes away. Fantastic sunny weather during our stay, did plenty locally - Bayeux, Mont St Michel (a bit crowded), D-Day beaches, but spent a lot time at the cottage with a good book! Great to get away from it all, intend to return.

Location

From the Owner

We love the isolation here and the absence of noisy neighbours, which is what first drew us to it. The surrounding countryside never ceases to surprise us with the abundance of wildlife. The town shops are only a few minutes away, the ferry ports less than an hour, so we're not exactly cut-off from civilisation.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

The D-day landing beaches as well as being of historic interest are also a great & safe family venue. 40 minutes drive to the east of the cottage takes you to Omaha beach including the pretty fishing village of Port-en-Bessin with its Sunday market. All along this coastline are miles of sandy beaches to explore, a great family day out.

Distances:

The nearest village with shops is Cormolain – 2.5Km

Town with shops, bar, supermarket, post office etc is Caumont l'Eventé - 10Km

County town of Bayeux (tapestry, Cathedral, museums) - 25Km

Arromanches museums & 360deg cinema - 35Km

Caen, regional capital - 42Km

Mont St Michel - 99Km

Facilities

From the Owner

It's a great central location here, Bayeux is only a 30 minute drive, the tapestry and Cathedral are a must. The lovely beaches are about 45 minutes which are great for family relaxing or to do the historic and moving tours of the D-day landing sites. The world famous Mont St Michel is about and hour and a half west of here. If you want to visit Paris for the day, the trains go from Bayeux and only take 2 hours each way. This cottage can offer peace & quiet for relaxing on-site, you only have ourselves & the wildlife for neighbours. The views up & down the valley from the cottage are unique.
