“Home from Home and Great base!”
Reviewed June 10, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Louise the owner met us when we arrived and had made a lovely fire to welcome us. We were slightly late due to the ferry etc and I later realised (after checking my voice mail) Louise had thoughtfully phoned us just in case we were lost or something! Louise is great for information about the area and always happy to help. Mirabelle is a comfortable, friendly cottage that's lovely to come home to after a long days exploring! It's got pretty much everything you need inside for cooking, the bathroom has a lovely powerful hot shower and I must say the bed we slept in was probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in! There is British/French tv and wfi to keep the younger ones happy!
The cottage is in a great location. Grandcamp is a pleasant seaside town with a supermarket with petrol station, several smaller shops, restaurants and bank machines. All of the main D-Day attractions are in easy reach, as are other attractions such as Mont St Michelle and the Bayeux Tapestry - there is so much to see a week is not enough!
Many thanks to Louise and Mirabelle, we had a great holiday!

“Fantastic Place and Location”
Reviewed April 24, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We stayed here for three nights in March to explore the WW2 sites and take in some of the local beaches and countryside.

Louise was around when we arrived and was a wonderful hostess. The atmosphere was very casual and laid back - her dog and cats were always about, something our boys (3&6) absolutely loved. Louise had a fire ready for us which heated up the house quite nicely, and was always ready to provide a kettle, turn the heat up, loan a blanket, provide more firewood... anything at all we needed.

Everything was easy about the house - it was close to all the sites (the absolute furthest is about 30-40 minutes) and provided easy access to restaurants, cafes, petrol, and a grocer (Carefour) in Grandcamp-Maisy, all within walking distance. The Carefour actually had great baguettes and cheese! In all, the home provided a base for us to visit Pont du Hoc, St. Mer Eglise, Omaha Beach, Mulberry Harbor, the American Military Cemetery, and Bayeux with ease.

Especially at the price, for a three-bedroom house in the heart of Normandy, we would highly recommend this property!

“A warm welcome !”
Reviewed December 11, 2012 for a stay in December 2012

On a cold December's day, in Grandcamp for the Scallop Festival, we received a doubly warm welcome - from the owner, who is lovely, and from a super log fire.
The house is cosy and the bed one of the most comfortable I have slept in - I managed nearly 12 hours on our first night: there's almost no passing traffic. The location is very quiet. Everything is just as it claims in the advertising but it is hard to describe in words just how homely the house feels.
The Scallop Festival was great fun - friendly, tremendous value and full of good food and drink; rounded off with a fireworks display over the harbour.
Louise, the owner, as well as being most welcoming has lots of local information on the town and region. Nothing was too much trouble.
It feels good to be able to lock up one's car off the road and out of sight.

My husband and I have just spent a lovely 8 nights here - and everything was just perfect!

Location - ideal for those looking to visit endless sandy beaches, or all the WW2 sites.

Accommodation - everything you could wish for..... clean, well equipped, comfy beds and a good shower!

WiFi available downstairs
Off road parking easily accessed
Within walking distance of a selection of bars /restaurants/ mini supermarket

Would recommend to couples and families alike.
