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

The description was accurate and communication with the owner was very good. The beach is excellent, very safe for young children as it shelves shallowly to rocks about 80 yards out, which shelter it from large waves for most of the tidal range. It is also an easy walk from the apartment. There are also plenty of cycle ways around the town and enough space downstairs to store bikes safely. Local services in La Paree such as boulangerie, supermarket, pizzeria, restaurants and ice cream shop (lots of yummy flavours) are recommended. Bretignolles market large - get there early as it gets very crowded. La Paree has a small market on a Monday morning for cooked chickens etc. Local tourist info in the town very helpful when we contacted them before arriving.
