Occupying the second floor of a traditional stone house, the apartment is luminous and full of natural light. The early 20th century building retains all of it’s classic design features with herringbone parquet floors, decorative moulding and fixtures and a soothing new palette of colors that mimic the sea.

    Port En Bessen – I had never heard of it before, however, what a great find. A small fishing town, a few hundred yards from Omaha Beach. 
    Astrid and Sailor’s Apartment on Rue Halley, another amazing find. We rented the one bedroom on the second floor. You walk in and there is the complete kitchen, dining area and a couch/extra bed. The windows open to the next street over where you can delight in the stone buildings and weathered shutters. You may not think much of that, but when you live in the mountains of Colorado, you don’t see that, so you absorb all the old architecture. To the left, is the bathroom, heavenly-modern-big, and then through the dining area, the bedroom.
    What was so enjoyable about this place was it was livable. There were hooks to hang your coats. There were hooks to hang the dishtowels. In the kitchen was this beautiful armoire that contained all the dishes, glasses, a microwave, spices, wraps, etc. There was a stove, oven, refrigerator and nespresso machine. We enjoyed breakfast every morning, only made complete with a fresh baguette from down the street and the local apple juice that Astrid provided to us when we checked in.
    The heavenly bathroom? the shower was dangerous. Once in, you never wanted to get out. The showerhead literally was 12” plus. Big fat towels, shampoo and hand soaps provided – presented on washcloths with a couple starfish. It’s the small things. The space was big – the whole family traveling could all get in and do what was needed. Again, not only a towel rack, but towel hooks. Delightful.
    The bed was super comfy – and my son, raved about the sofa/ bed in the dining/kitchen area. He never wanted to leave.
    On one side of the apartment was a small market run by this adorable little couple that will supply you with grocery basics, including alcohol and baguettes. If you go the other way, at the end of the street is a patisserie that will supply you pizza, more baguettes, pastries, incredible quiche and anything else a sweet tooth may desire.
    One of the cool things taking place during our stay; it was scallop season. At night, the boats would storm into town, and off came the tons of scallops. Amazing to watch the production – boats in, unloaded, stored and then next one pulled up. Bag after bag of scallops, pallet after pallet removed from the dock and taken into the warehouse.
    Right behind the apartment, 1/ 2 block or so, is a free parking lot for your car. 
    Last but not least, a huge thank you to you Astrid! for taking the time to find my power plug, and returning it back to me in the states. I look forward to my next time in town to see you again, as this one was of our best stops on our journey through France.
