Harbor House

Port-en-Bessin, Normandy, France
An Authentic Fisherman's House on the Normandy Coast

This beautiful old fisherman's house is perfectly located to take in all the charm of the Normandy coast. Perched on the seafront in Port-en-Bessin, it's right up against the elements, making stormy days with high tides dramatic, and calm days tranquil and idyllic. It retains all the appeal of its original architecture, with all the added functionality of contemporary design.

Harbor House, Port-en-Bessin, Normandy, France | vacation home rentals

This is a great property for getting to know Normandy. An authentic fisherman's house, it is located in the Quai Letourneur, Port-en-Bessin, within easy reach of many of the region's attractions - from the WWII landing sites, to the home of the Bayeux Tapestry and beautiful Mont St Michel.

Built on three levels, it's a great property for two couples sharing - as each bedroom is completely independent, with its own en-suite bathroom. There is also a raised terrace and a generously-sized communal living area.

The house retains much of its original charm, with wooden walls and tiled floors, as well as beautiful shuttered windows overlooking the port. Features we love include the high ceilings with whitewashed rafters, the old wooden staircase that curves between the floors, the old-world nautical feel (seagulls and anchors included) combined with contemporary pieces like the molded plastic ball chair and free-standing sink in the attic room.

 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Equipment includes LCD TV with French and international channels, DVD player and multilingual DVDs, a Bose iPod dock, and a library of books and magazines. The kitchen is fully-equipped with dishwasher, Nespresso coffeemaker and washing machine. Baby equipment (cot, high chair) is available on request.

 

AROUND

Port-en-Bessin has plenty to offer guests who don't want to drive. Walks along the sand, journeys by boat, buying produce from local fishermen or at auction, hiking trails, bike rentals... There's also a 36-hole golf course and a shipwreck museum nearby.

Activities within easy reach include farm visits, swimming (in a local pool), horse-riding, tennis and tree climbing, as well as trawling through flea markets and antique shops.

Slightly farther afield are windswept, sandy beaches, the American cemetery at Omaha Beach and the British cemetery at Bayeux, as well as Bayeux Cathedral and Tapestry, and numerous chateaux and farms. For those happy to drive over an hour there are plenty of other interesting destinations including the beautiful Mont St Michel.
