In the peaceful Normandy village of Ver-sur-Mer, a couple of minutes' walk from the beach, a wheeled cabin in seaside colours of vintage rose, sea-greens and -greys blends beautifully and naturally with the olive trees and pin parasol of Mylène's Provence-inspired garden. Inside, bright colours, fresh flowers and exotic teas lend a welcoming air, and the B&B next door means you aren’t at all isolated: your delicious breakfast (included) is served in the conservatory just across the courtyard.
The architect who designed Côté Bohème divided the space into simple sections so you can close glass doors to the children's room, say 'bonne nuit, les petits!' and enjoy sunset on your own private terrace. The lower of the two bunks turns into a sofa if there are just two of you, and voilà! an elegant place to have tea. The double at the far end looks over the lawn, and between the two, a swish bathroom is fully plumbed in.
Beach-related activities abound: walking, wildlife-spotting, land sailing; and there are windmills to tour further inland as well as the Bayeux tapestry 20min by car. An adorable place – with a Bohemian edge – for a few days’ break or longer – and all a short hop from the ferry!
