Are you interested in making good income from your property?

With Covid still hurting regular business and holiday traffic, the interest via our niche Portal in quieter location properties has been very strong the past few months. Much stronger in fact than the expectations coming out of our tiny property survey back in April.

I was on holiday near Honfleur and Deauville, Calvados, Normandy, this year with some good friends and we basically experienced some serious tourism and good entertainment spending as tables for the many Michelin Guide restaurants in the area had to be reserved well in advance. The weather was of course great and mandatory wearing masks in busy streets and shops wasn't really a problem. The atmosphere was very friendly, distance kept where possible and with respect.

We also made a trip to one of our listings in the largest and most western département Manche (50) of Normandy. It is the first in this month's property listings below and represents a unique opportunity to not just run a 4* B&B if so desired, but tap into the massive tourism flow from families of American, Canadian and English WWII veterans. Normandy enjoys some 4.5 million visitors each year of which a majority visits the landing beaches along the most western coasts of calvados and Manche. About 600,000 to 700,000 Americans alone fly into Paris each year for a guided tour to the 6 June 1944 'Operation Overlord' landing spots codenamed Utah, Omaha, Sword, Gold and Juno.

Remember St Mer Eglise, where trooper John Steele hung from his parachute caught by the Church tower and pretending to be dead for several hours before being captured by the occupiers. This little village with a population of just 3,000 welcomes 200,000 visitors each year who come to relive history at the local war museum and take photographs of the chute as in the picture above.

2019 was the 75th anniversary celebration of DDay and on this year 75 years ago on 15 August 1945 the Japanese surrendered in Southeast Asia following the bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki a week earlier. This was the date that the Dutch could finaly put the end of a horrible 1940-1945 memory into the history books. In Indonesia where many of my countrymen and woman, including parents of a very good schoolfriend were captured, abused and worse.

Remembrance is still important and our children and grandchildren should be made aware what freedom really means.

But that was then and this is now.....

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Manche, Normandie, Country Estate


Besides or instead of running a high quality B&B from this 18th Village Manor near St Mer Eglise, an intuitive plan to attract as many visitors as you can handle will skyrocket trading income. Something that doesn't exist in Normandy, that relates to its history, and will be greatly appreciated. Ideal also for a slightly younger American, Canadian, British, Duch or Belgian family seeking to operate some hospitality and be frequented by many of their countrymen with as many different stories.

We can imagine income to easily exceed €250,000 annualy and year after year, making this real estate proposition pretty much a no brainer. From the viewpoint of real opportunity, these don't come along too often. It is like buying Gold with a $1,000 discount. Just contact us for more information.
