The Basse-Normandie region

Le Vermont is in Saint Pierre du Mont in Normandy. We're located on the English Channel; our climate is Continental and, thanks to the Gulf Stream, mild year round.

Our region is well known for its historic sites (WWII landing beaches, Bayeux's Tapestry & Cathedral, Caen with its castle and abbeys) and its regional specialties such as cheeses, cream and butter, cider, pommeau, and Calvados, fish and seafood, and different types sausages, which can be bought in traditional outdoor markets or fresh off the boat, as well as in local commerce.

Normandy is a wonderful place, with a wealth of sites to visit, an excellent cuisine to sample, and a beautiful and calm countryside and seacoast to enjoy.

We are happy to advise you on visiting, eating, and drinking!

Saint Pierre du Mont

Saint Pierre itself is an agricultural village located on the sea coast, within walking distance of the Pointe du Hoc. If you are a birder, bring your binoculars because there's an ornithological reserve nearby. The Saint Pierre church dates from the 12th-14th century and is well worth a visit.

Our corner of Normandy offers some great sandy beaches, lovely country roads for rambling or cycling, and views of traditional Norman mansions, some of which are open to the public.

Just down the road is the little fishing village of Grandcamp-Maisy, which offers a good selection of restaurants on its seafront, a fish market, and a sailing school, as well as other commerce, including 2 bakeries and a butcher shop.

We're also an easy autoroute drive to the Mont Saint Michel or to Monet's home in Giverny.

"WWII History Trip of a Lifetime"

Putting into words how wonderful our stay at the Salamander was is really difficult. To begin with, Hilary was an amazing host. Her willingness to make us truly feel at home was a welcome relief after our brief stay in Paris. Waking up to share a wonderful breakfast with such an interesting and kind host was a great way to start our days off. As we were on a WWII history trip, it was an added bonus to have Hilary help us with our planning. Le Vermont is in the epicenter of so many significant WWII historical sites, making day trips to multiple locations quite simple. The kitchen exceeded our expectations and we ended up choosing to cook our own dinners instead of eating out. Hilary helped set us up with the best places to buy local produce, meats, and other provisions. The local butcher, Pascal, was a gem. We ate VERY well! The Salamander itself was clean, comfortable, well appointed, and absolutely beautiful. The construction and architecture were top-notch, and the results of much hard work and attention to detail were obvious. Our stay with Hilary at The Salamander was a highlight of our trip and I would highly recommend it.

"Beautiful cottage in peaceful surroundings"

We loved the house and the renovation. Owner and son delightful and helpful, enjoyed our aperitifs! The gardens are pretty. Very peaceful location, but all amenities nearby. Visited Mont St Michel and would strongly recommend it. The American Cemeteries are well worth visiting and beaches too. Bayeux Cathedral and the Tapestry are absolute musts to visit. Try Pizzeria Fred'au for huge pizzas. We had 2 teenage girls with us who were entertained by their laptops via the wifi.

"Excellent Stay"

We stayed one night in the flat. There are 2 bedrooms, one on ground floor and one in fist floor, each with independant bathroom, in a separate antic traditonal stone house, totally renovated by the owners. The flat is provided with an equiped kitchen for longer stays if required. The owners (french husband with his lovely and american wife) are extremely friendly, share their passion for this beatiful location and its history. The garden tour is a must, between trees, ducks, etc... Free wifi provided. We definitevely appreciated the stay and recommand this address.
