SEASIDE VACATION HOME - OMAHA Beach, Normandy, France
The landing at Omaha Beach in 1944, June the 6th, was the beginning of the reconstruction of France devastated by years of war. Millions of families were left without a house. The French government decided to create temporary cities.
In 1946, thousands of shacks are then imported from Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Canada, United States. These huts have allowed generations of Normans to live, post-war to the present day in modern and comfortable homes.
This house comes from FINLAND (manufacturer FINN HUS, ranked in the General Inventory of French Cultural Heritage). Its history from 1946 to 1963 remains uncertain (housing for the dismantling of the Mulberry artificial harbor). It was located on the site of Omaha Beach in 1963 on a plot of 2000m SEASIDE
It was completely renovated in 2014 on the occasion of the 70th anniversary celebrations of the landing DDAY.

COMMENTS FROM OUR GUEST (example)
JESSIE (Paris) : Very enjoyable, delightful hosts and welcoming. Lovely view of the house and very clean, great garden!
WENDY (UK) : This is a perfect location, a fantastic place to stay. Everything you need in a lovely house. The beach is gorgeous and so big it never feels busy. The hosts are excellent friendly and extremely helpful. Our trip was interrupted due to my husband falling ill and the hosts went out of their way to help me.
RUBEN (Netherlands) : A comfortable house with a great view, at an historic site. We had a wonderful time and our two kids enjoyed the beach a lot. Such luxury to be able to walk home for a cold drink and open it on the beach! The owners were very friendly and helpful.
TINA (Netherlands) : Location, location, location! That is what FinnHus is all about. Right across the street from Omaha beach, it's views are just breath-taking. A great location to tour Normandy and D-Day museums and memorials. It is a lovely property. The pictures do not do the property justice. Everything is also spotless clean. I would recommend this property to others! And I will.
ERIN (USA) : Wonderful location right across from Omaha Beach. Cute house that's well-equipped with everything you will need for your stay (option to rent bed linens). Great place to stay with kids - there are several swing sets, a large fenced in yard and a playhouse. Deck to lounge in the sun or have breakfast overlooking the flowering hillsides. Centrally located, parking on site. 4 stars! Highly recommended!
DAVID (Ireland) ; Driving along the coast I saw the Finnish flag flying in the distance andknew that I had arrived. I met Emmanuel at the Finnhus and he showed me where everything was and how it worked and could not have been more welcoming.
MARK (Netherlands) : We found the house as described in the ad. Everything was clearly communicated by the owner. The house was clean upon arrival. The view is great,
the house is child friendly, the surroundings quiet.
We had a good time. When in Normandy, this is definitely a home to stay again.
HELEN (Autralia) : We were delighted with FinnHus it was in an awesome position, close to lots of interesting WW2 sites
LASHEA (UK) : Lovely experience. Cottage was clean and owner was friendly. Would highly suggest this cottage to our friends
JUDY (USA) : Incredible location for visiting all the Normandy sites. Moving experience to actually stay right on Omaha Beach. Cottage was very clean and very comfortable beds. Easy to gain access even without meeting host. Highly recommend
