We came to Normandy principally to visit the D-Day beaches, and La Maison Matelot made a perfect home base. We stayed in the well-furnished loft (3rd floor) and we loved everything about it. Astrid was very nice and very helpful. We loved the furnishings and being able to open all the windows. (They do all have shades -- I had wondered about that from the pictures!) We also loved having pastries from the corner bakery and as much coffee as we wanted in our own little apartment each morning. We were within very easy walking distance of a small grocery store, free parking, several restaurants and shops. We really didn't cook while we were there but it was very nice having the kitchen -- particularly the refrigerator and coffeemaker! There was also access to a washing machine and dryer. We loved our stay here and truly wished we could have stayed longer.
One helpful hint -- La Maison Matelot is on a very small street. We drove right past it originally, not recognizing that it was a street. It looks like more of a pedestrian walkway.
