This hotel was in a great location, the pictures Astrid posted are quite accurate, and Astrid was great to work with. When we had a question, she responded immediately, and was very accommodating. This building is three apartments, one on each floor. Be aware that the ground floor apartment does not have a shower, rather a tub with a sprayer,... More

We were captivated by the pictures and description of La Maison Matelot online and even slightly changed our itinerary in order to stay longer. Now we can't wait to go back! Astrid could not have been more accommodating with email answers to all of our questions. She met us promptly upon arrival, showed us everything in the incredible Carreaux apartment... More

We had such a wonderful time and we enjoyed our stay at La Maison Matelot. Astrid is wonderful to deal with and very prompt with responses on inquiries and the booking process is very easy and straight forward. The apt has everything you need for a very comfortable stay and it is very convenient for a base to explore the... More

Booked to stay here for 1 week at the beginning of June for the 70th Anniversary of the DD landings. This is the 2nd time that myself and my partner have stayed here and it is excellent. Astrid the owner, is a very good host. She went out of her way to get us the pass for the car that... More

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 La Maison Matelot 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... More

We could not have been happier with our choice of La Maison Matelot for a three night stay in Port-en-Bessin. We stayed in the first floor apartment which was delightful. It was light, beautifully decorated and comfortable. Astrid was very pleasant and greeted us warmly before showing us around the apartment and making recommendations for restaurants and day trips. She... More

This was truly a magical weekend--the Matelot loft is beautiful, stylish, comfortable, and has everything you would need to cook a meal or hang out at home (not that you would want to with so much to do outside the house). Astrid was extremely accommodating, especially when we got stuck in traffic and arrived two hours after we thought we... More

We came to Normandy principally to visit the D-Day beaches, and La Maison Matelot made a perfect home base. We stayed in the well-furnished loft (3rd floor) and we loved everything about it. Astrid was very nice and very helpful. We loved the furnishings and being able to open all the windows. (They do all have shades -- I had... More

Port-en Bessin is an idyllic fishing harbor located in Normandy and near the D-Day beaches. We had the good fortune to stay at La Maison Matelot in the "Le Matelot a Carreaux" apartment on the ground floor. The apartment is situated in the center of town on a quiet cobblestone lane. Down the street is the harbor, several restaurants, a... More

My husband and I stayed here for a week at the end of September/ beginning of October on the start of our 3 week vacation. La Maison set our accommodations standard for the trip pretty high. We stayed in both the loft and the 1st floor apartment as Astrid didn't have one week continuously in one place. It was not... More
