They absolutely loved the bus bunk beds and having a desk to sit at. It was hard to get them to leave the room! The apartment is in great condition and felt very clean. The layout is strange to begin with as there is no sink near the toilet but we got used to popping up the stairs after. Good for our fitbit steps! The stairs are fine. There are two sets. Ourselves and our kids had no problem with them at all. The kitchen is well equipped though we only used the microwave and hob. Our kids loved the little mugs with faces on and wanted a different colour each morning! We got fresh baguette and croissants every morning from the bakers downstairs. Delish! We used this as a base to explore Caen, Bayeux and Point du Hoc. Marie was great st showing us around her apartment and happI'll spoke French to my husband and English to me. Would recommend this to friends.
