So many potential Local Hideaways in one Norman fishing village…there has to be a reason! And it turns out there is, for Astrid and Laurence – ‘Les Filles du Bord de Mer’, two strong-willed ladies who have settled here on the coast, have a knack for finding beautiful old buildings and restoring them tastefully. However, this posed a dilemma for Mrs. Local Hideaways, for choices had to be made……Which Hideaway to feature on her website! Aaaahh….difficult! But I was able to find something for everyone: whether you’re traveling with family or together, for only a couple of days or longer……Port-en-Bessin is the place to be!

La Cabane des Pêcheurs is the perfect Local Hideaway for a romantic break. Tucked away in a small backstreet, you enter this hidden gem through its private courtyard. The cosy little house has a comfortable double bed, a bathroom with shower, a fully equipped kitchenette and dining area with a picture postcard view of the sea, and a mezzanine with sofa and television. When the weather is nice, the private courtyard at the back is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the sun. And the “plancha”, the flattop metal grill, is perfect for preparing the fresh fish you can buy at the local fish market that is just around the corner…How wonderful is that! But what makes this Hideaway extra special is its fantastic interior design. As is the case in all of Astrid and Laurence’s residences, La Cabane de Pecheurs is decorated with love and care and with great attention to detail, making you feel right at home. And that truly is an accomplishment. This is one Hideaway that you and your companion will not want to leave, but that would mean missing out on the wonderful surroundings!

Port-en-Bessin is an authentic fishing village where time seems to have stood still. Here you can still find remnants of the Second World War and the famous D-Day beaches are nearby. The city of Bayeux is just around the corner and the beautiful Norman countryside, famous for its production of cider and Calvados, is easily accessible. La Cabane des Pêcheurs is the perfect place to discover beautiful, impressive and versatile Normandy and to celebrate love!
