The house is very well-equipped, spotlessly clean and well maintained. We decided it was one of the nicest houses on the (small) estate, and probably had the best view. You can tell the owners use it and enjoy it, as there were lots of extra touches like 2 adult bicycles to borrow (great cycle paths along the coast), and useful cookware in the kitchen. We slept in the mezzanine bedroom and loved the light and airy space, and the sea view. We even stood on the balcony at night and could see the Milky Way and millions of stars, which was really special. The other two ground floor bedrooms were a good size with generous storage/wardrobe space. It was useful having the toilet separate from the shower room, although it could have used a hand-basin in it for convenience. The shower was great, loads of hot water at a constant temperature. We had good weather so were able to use the loungers and admired the very pretty garden, which still had lots of colour and humming-bird moths buzzing around. Parking was easy as the house has a space under cover by the entrance, which would be especially useful in hot weather. La Sauzaie beach itself is more for surfers as it's mostly rocky, and would be unsuitable for swimming, but there are spectacular beaches along the coast in both directions, so you're really spoilt for choice. We did enjoy wandering in the dunes behind though. Our only minor niggle was the lack of wifi, as my phone struggled to get any signal in the area (not just at the house). Luckily the supermarkets and most towns gave you 2 hours free wifi so we had to look up any tourist info when we went there.

Steve and Judy's house is in a beautiful location, less than five minutes away from a stunning beach that goes on for miles. It was spotless and immaculately furnished providing everything you may need - even an outdoor barbecue! The delightful square has a number of wonderful restaurants, as well as an excellent ice cream shop that serves every flavour of ice cream you can imagine - the perfect treat after a long day on the beach! There is also a delightful local bar with very friendly and helpful locals. The cycle path all the way along the coast really made our holiday complete after we hired a tandem at the local bike shop. Steve and Judy have even put a bicycle rack in the garden to store bikes overnight which made things very easy after returning from a long ride! Thank you both for all your help in organising a truly fantastic holiday - it really was the best vacance yet! We will be back again next year and are already looking forward to it... Tom Bruce
