Family holiday

By Susannah on 06-Apr-2024

We had such a wonderful time at Normandie Nest. The location is perfect - very easy to access a wide range of D Day sites and museums, as well as Bayeux, and an easy drive to Carentan train station, allowing us to take the train to Paris for a day trip. The cottage itself is very comfortable - a fully stocked kitchen, a spacious yet cosy sitting and dining room, very pleasant bedrooms and plenty of bathrooms! A fabulous selection of books to browse and lovely garden (with swings) meant that it was also brilliant just to spend the day “at home”. We would really love to come back another time and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Normandie Nest to friends and family. Thank you so much, Justine!

Lovely Property

By The Cloughs on 24-Aug-2023

The house had everything we expected and more! The location was fabulous allowing us to easily explore the whole of Normandy. The information pack supplied by the owner Justine more than met our needs. Justine went above and beyond answering our queries without delay and in a very friendly way - thank you Justine.

Gorgeous house

By Kath on 30-Jul-2023

I came across the Normandie Nest while looking for a holiday house that would be different than a bland magnolia IKEA airbnb that could be anywhere, and it was perfect. The whole house is beautiful and full of history and art, a lovely place to spend time as well as use as a base for exploration. We really appreciated the well appointed kitchen - it might be the first time we've genuinely cooked on holiday as we would at home. We loved making big feasts for us - with young kids we actually didn't eat out the entire fortnight but it didn't feel like we were missing out because there was so much local produce to cook with.
