This Normandy holiday cottage is situated half an hour south of Cherbourg in a small hamlet 8 minutes drive from Sainte-Mere-Eglise and 5 minutes drive to the wide sandy beaches on the east coast – the Normandy landing beaches.

There are two large living rooms plus a big kitchen on the ground floor, with two spacious bedrooms on the first floor.
