Our holiday

4 of 5
We had a lovely time when we visited Caen the house was great. I usually never sleep well when away but every night I had a wonderful nights sleep. The house was just the right size for two people and comfortable, clean and tidy and a supermarket near by. It was an ideal position for the places we went to visit would stay there again if we were returning to that area.
