La Pommetier is a small luxury B&B located in a pretty corner of Arromanches-les-Bains – the hub of the Normandy D-Day beaches.
Owners Mike and Danielle Kabos first saw the ‘for sale’ sign on the house while visiting Arromanches as part of a drive along the “Overlord Route” in 2013 and it was love at first sight. The next year they gave up their corporate careers in Melbourne, Australia to move here permanently.
A year of renovations followed with the help of a team of local artisans and under the watchful eyes of Trevor and Darren our cavalier king charles spaniels. No detail has been spared in creating a haven of comfort and relaxation.
La Pommetier provides all the things needed for a relaxing stay – comfortable beds, quality linens, fluffy towels, toiletries you’ll want to take with you (we use Durance Mandarin and Ginger products) and a hearty traditional French breakfast of local produce. You’ll find a range of the latest international magazines in the lounge room to take out to a deck chair in the garden on a sunny afternoon or curl up with in front of the fire with a cup of tea in winter.
The entire house is centrally heated in winter with open fires in the living and dining rooms to sit by. In summer there is nothing nicer than to throw open the windows to the sounds of the birds and the Arros river tumbling into the historic lavoir across the lane way. The village church bells ring from 7am to 10pm every day usually accompanied by the village donkey in the field on the hill.
It’s the French country home you would love to have, but are happy someone else fluffs the cushions and collects the croissants from the bakery in the morning.
