One of three charmingly restored apartments in a Port-en-Bessin village townhouse, this vacation home rental in Normandy stays faithful to the original feel and tone of the house and harbor town while giving it a sophisticated but subtle modern update. We love the vintage feel, neutral colors and the beautiful tile work.
This vacation home for rent in Normandy located in the heart of the charming fishing port of Port-en-Bessin is just steps from the sea, and is an ideal hideaway from which to explore the coastal areas.
Occupying the ground floor of a traditional stone house, the apartment is a chic and private enclave for two with a retro, ”Gustavian” theme that complements the classic building’s original character.
The early 20th century building retains all of it’s classic design features with the original cement and decorative floor tiles, rugged exposed stone, and a soothing new palette of colors in gray and linen.
Entering directly into an all-in-one kitchen living and dining space, the double bedroom is off to one side with a fully updated bath featuring a cast iron tub.
The charming vintage theme includes unique fixtures, classic faience metro tiles and original antiques.
The rooms open out to a little dining courtyard for two with the sounds and scents of the village square and the sea just outside.
