“PERFECT LOCATION AND BEAUTIFUL HOUSE”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I can't find fault with our wonderful stay at The Salamander. We were extremely comfortable and nothing was too much trouble for Hilary who was a wonderful host. The Salamander is perfectly presented and although not a big property we were a family of five and never felt cramped. It has everything you need and was spotlessly clean with plenty of towels and hot water. The location itself could't be better for exploring all the amazing d-day landing sights and the nearest town of Grandcamp Maisy just a few minutes away has a supermarket, bakery and plenty of restaurants to chose from. We had a truly super holiday.

“Excellent property,wonderful hosts”
Reviewed 8 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We would wholeheartedly agree with all that has been said in previous reviews. We chose The Salamander on the basis of those reviews and on the quick response from Hilary when we first made an enquiry. The property was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. After long days sightseeing it was great to come back,relax in the garden,then prepare a meal,or eat out in Grandcamp Maissy using Hilary's recommendations. One evening we were invited to join Hilary and Patrick for an aperitif - what a great night! What wonderful hosts! The Salamander is an excellent property, very conveniently situated for exploring World War 2 sites, other historical sites and the Normandy Coast and countryside. The Wi- Fi was excellent, enabling us to keep in touch with family at home and do some research on places to visit ( although Hilary and Patrick also provided lots of information ) There is so much to see and do in Normandy that we would love to return. Hilary showed us their newest property at Le Vermont - a 3 bedroomed house, Le Champlain, which would be great for us to return with our children and their families.

“Perfect Vacation Home”
Reviewed 27 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We were so lucky to find this rental on Trip Advisor. Hillary & Patrick were the perfect hosts, so helpful in every way. The accommodations were exactly as portrayed and suited us perfectly. We were close to all major area attractions and bakeries, groceries, etc were only a short distance away by car. We loved the feeling we were visiting with friends, even had the chance to pet the resident dogs & cats!
Thanks, again, Hillary & Patrick, we enjoyed our stay.

“A Fantastic Place from which to explore the Normandy Beaches”
Reviewed 25 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The Salamander is a superb self-contained cottage set within the grounds of the larger Vermont estate run by Patrick and Hilary, who are great hosts. The property itself is spotless and very well appointed, with lots of mod cons and is also a lovely place if you just want to relax for a whil, with a spacious outdoor area. It is situated only about 800m from the cliffs of Omaha Beach (western end) and only a 5 minute drive to access the beach from Vierville sur Mer. There is a lovely clifftop walk to the Pointe du Hoc for those interested in the D Day History.
Patrick and Hilary made us both very welcome and we would highly recommend this property to anyone.
