Spent two nights here which was not enough! This is a fascinating and beautiful area to explore and Pierre & Vacances provides an ideal base. It is within easy walking distance of Juno beach and the Canadian museum and not far to Arromanches and the other D-Day beaches.
We booked it to avoid a night in Paris and travelled easily into Caen to park and catch the train into the city. The journey was very comfortable, half the price of fares in the UK for twice the distance.
The accommodation is 'bijou' but very practical and everything we needed, except a toaster, which we could have hired from reception if we wanted to but we managed without. Just a short stride to the restaurants for an excellent choice of evening meals, coffee etc.
Others have commented on the short opening hours of reception but it is not difficult to organise arrival time to fit in and we didn't find it a problem.
The pool is lovely but the changing room is quite tight and not as private as British visitors might like especially at closing time. I threw a towel round me and hurried back to the apartment for a shower!
Lovely and quiet, perfect for a few relaxing days or longer if you are lucky.
The room we stayed in was in the annexe to the hotel which has been converted from an old Normandy house.. Each room has a name - ours was Coté Jardin. It is a very large room with a large double bed and a sofa - which would also make into a bed. The bathroom was spectacular and spotlessly clean. Outside there is a garden and patio with seating and lighting and to the front of the property, free parking with video surveillance. Fast and free wi-fi just topped off an excellent stay.

On arrival the staff were very busy with a lunchtime service but we were checked in quickly and efficiently. The hotel is actually about 300yds from the main restaurant where you check in, so if you have a disability bear this in mind when booking.
The rooms were lovely and had a small balcony and an upstairs with a second double bed! This was not clear on booking which was a little frustrating as it would have meant we only needed to book the one room instead of two. They were both clean and well decorated and the bed was VERY comfortable.
We will definitely use this hotel again!
