Quiet house in the city centre of Caen, Normandy.

Our House is a 1950s house situated on a quiet one way street. About 110 m2 on 3 levels. We have a fully equiped kitchen, two bedrooms, one sofa bed in the living room, two toilets, one bathroom.
There is also a terrace at the back of the house overlooking the garden (100m2).

The best way to reach Caen if you arrive by plane is probably to take a "Ouibus" or "Flixbus", taking you straight from the airports -Orly or Roissy- to Caen bus station. Then a short ride by bus or tram, and you'll be home!

You can take a train too, with a connection in Paris St Lazare station. Paris is just 2 hours by train from Caen.

The house is close to shops and located near a large park, "la Vallée des Jardins".

Normandie Impressionniste Festival 2024 is back!
Lots of exhibitions in and around Caen.

The Memorial Museum is worth a visit if you're interested in World War 2 and the Cold War. (It's the most visited museum in France outside Paris) It is a 20-minute walk through the park to get there.

You can reach the city center on foot in 20 minutes through the castle grounds.

Caen is 20kms from the sea.
Our favorite beach: Merville-Franceville, family friendly and very easy to access, an international kitesurf spot!
Ouistreham is also very pleasant.
It is possible to go there by bike on the cycling routes along the canal, in around 1 hour.

20 min from Bayeux, a great little town with buildings from the Middle Ages, and of course the famous Tapestry telling about William the Conqueror invasion of Britain! (1066)

30 min from Arromanches to start your discovery of the landing beaches.

1 hour also to access the bay of Mt St Michel.

1h45 by car to reach Brittany, St Malo.

...and about 2 hours by train to have a day-out in Paris!

We 've travelled mainly in Europe, but in North and central America too. We enjoy visiting cities as much as the countryside. We are interested in architecture, museums and other sights.
We love reading, watching films, going to concerts. Jean-Bernard practises golf on a very regular base, and we enjoy hiking and cycling too.
We would consider any offer and will reply to your e-mails.
We keep our house clean and tidy and would do the same with yours.
