The cottage is so beautiful and very well equipped, with lovely gardens to rest after a busy day. It was pleasant enough to have a couple of hours with a glass of wine on four evenings, even though it was March! Caroline and Georges were wonderful hosts, very warm and welcoming, and they were just next door if we needed anything. The area is wonderful, very close to all the landing beaches, which was why we had chosen it, but also it would have loads to do for kids in summer with great beaches. Nearby traditional towns have traditional shops and large super markets. We cannot recommend this cottage and this area of Normandy enough!

Property was really well heated so we weren't cold. We did a lot of days out travelling by car and the location was great for access to the main road. Really near to both the town and the supermarche. Bathroom had just been worked on and the whole property was clean. Host was lovely, we arrived on Sunday when shops were closed and she provided us with essentials. We will definitely come back to stay again.

Das Haus ist sehr sauber und mit allen erforderlichen Annehmlichkeiten ausgestattet. Der Ausblick ist unbeschreiblich schön ( ich konnte gar nicht genug Fotos davon machen :-)) Wir haben uns unglaublich wohlgefühlt und freuen uns sehr dieses Jahr unsere Sommer- und unsere Weihnachtsferien dort verbringen zu dürfen.
