Description

The gîte des 3 Moussaillons is an old fisherman's house, charming and with top-of-the-range finishes on all three floors. It is the penultimate house on the quay, just in front of the lighthouses of the fore-port. With its enlarged openings with unique windows you will have an exceptional view of the sea from all rooms, and will be grateful to contemplate the entrances and exits of the boats. This gîte can accommodate two couples, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, or a family with 3 children. Magnificent view also from the open kitchen and the living-dining room. Its large fireplace with insert gives extra warmth to the main room of the house on the ground floor, where one can feel like being on the open sea, nestling in the sofa, without the bother of smoke. The furniture is a mix of antique furniture and more recent acquisitions in a contemporary spirit with shades of grey, beige and blue. There is an old-fashioned stove in the master bedroom


The fisherman's village: Port-en-Bessin is a commune in the Bessin region, often simply called "Port" by its inhabitants. The charming commune with its old fishermen's houses and its beautiful Caen stones, has an authentic fishing port. It is managed by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Caen. It is the seventh fishing port in France and the first in Lower Normandy. The fish auction, one of the most modern in France, sells 11,000 tons of fish every year, 42% of which is destined for export.
On the cliff, at the entrance to the port, the Vauban tower was built in 1694 by the architect Benjamin de Combes to watch out for privateers and prevent English invasions. It is listed as a Historic Monument. The Cultural Centre offers guided tours with themes, each one more interesting than the other.

The historical stay: From William the Conqueror to the D-Day landings on June 6th 1944, come and discover the rich history of the Bessin. An exceptional heritage is offered to you to visit: Queen Mathilde's Tapestry, historic beaches of Omaha Beach, Juno Beach and Gold Beach, castles, manor houses, fortified farms..
A historical dimension of the landing is illustrated by numerous sites and memorials, notably the American cemetery of Colleville-sur-mer and the Caen memorial, half an hour away by car.

The natural setting: Le Bessin benefits from a preserved natural setting with varied landscapes: long sandy beaches, forest, bocage, cliffs, plains and marshes, so many places to discover thanks to the numerous hiking trails..
