The Boat House

Port-en-Bessin, Normandy, France
The Nautical Heritage Of Port-en-Bessin

This lovely converted seaside property sits right on the waterfront in Port-en-Bessin, Normandy. It retains much of its old world charm, while providing all modern amenities. We love the simple elegance of its design, its playfulness - as well as its fabulous location.

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

Located on the waterfront in Port-en-Bessin, Normandy, this property was originally two fishermen's houses. Today they have been merged to create a space that's perfect for two couples or a group of five. Two bedrooms (sleeping two and three respectively) are accessed separately by their own staircases (one a wrought-iron spiral, and the other wooden); each has its own en-suite bathroom.

High ceilings and large shuttered windows (opening right onto the paved waterfront) give this house a spacious feel. Design is unfussy, blending old-fashioned armchairs, a clawfoot tub and wrought-iron railings with a contemporary kitchen and bathroom. Decorative life-preservers, fishing nets, fish and boats pay playful homage to the property's nautical heritage. And to cap it all off, there's a playroom with board games and table football.

 

NORMANDY'S QUAINT SEASIDE FISHING VILLAGES

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.
