Lovely apartment, everything we needed for our stay. We loved the quirky layout.

5 of 5
The apartment was cool even in the heatwave. Madame Binoche was friendly and very helpful. It was very central and right next door to the Sunday market which was great. The apartment had everything we needed,fast WiFi and plenty of hot water. Also it is larger and brighter than the photos suggest. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this apartment and our host. Many thanks.

Beautiful home with all you need to have a wonderful vacation Cormelles-le-Royal

5 of 5
We stayed at this lovely home for 4 nights. It was in a wonderful neighborhood that was safe, clean and quiet. The house is super clean and well equipped with everything you might need. It had a washer and pretty outside area for meals and relaxing. I highly recommend it. We were close to many sites and visited Omaha Beach other historic WW11 sites. Two of the bedrooms are on the ground floor which made it very easy for our elderly mother to access the bedroom and bathroom. The upstairs was a treasure where the kids had a great time. I loved that all expectations were written and that we understood what was to be done before we left. Stay here. You will enjoy your stay very much!
