The house was very well-equipped and organized and charmingly decorated as well. We enjoyed the cheese, bread and wine of France, many evenings in the large peaceful garden, and visited many World War II museums and memorials, as well as the beaches, as the location of Les Cavées is optimal. Overall a very positive experience that we will most likely repeat!

The rooms are comfortable. The shower is amazing! The location is incredible for getting to D day beaches , Cherbourg, and Barneville Carteret, so there's loads to do. The local town is has a good supermarket, fuel station, and a castle.
