Added bonus to be able park the car off road. The apartment is very modern and clean. The owner was very helpful in all matters.

Veronique waiting for us when we arrived to show us round. All went very smoothly and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very good location for visiting Normandy beaches and associated places - which is what we were there for. Overall excellent
