The property has been converted to a very high standard and it wants for nothing, everything has been done to make your stay perfect. Tom and David live next door and are the perfect hosts nothing is to much trouble yet at the same time your privacy is respected but if you need anything at any time you only have to ask. If you want to go to Normandy - this is the place to stay.

First of all, the house is large, airy and very clean. There is a nice garden that wraps around the house with room for kids to run around and play. The beach is just a short walk down the road and both our son (14) and daughter (12) loved it there. Rocks to climb, crabs to find, shells to collect and lovely long walks. For us, a dream holiday. Lots of places to visit nearby. The nearest town has everything you need from supermarket to little shops selling the all essential baguettes. Mrs Leduc was a very welcoming host and everything went smoothly. Just a couple of things to point out to English renters: Madame Leduc only speaks French and we don't. We managed to get by with google translate and once there our poor French just about worked. Note that towels and bedding are not included, which I found out the evening before leaving. Upon asking, we paid an extra 40 Euros and had nice bedding and also towels added. Also, upon arrival we were suddenly told about a 500 Euro security deposit which was never mentioned before either. Please do sort this with the owner before you leave. We had to leave this in cash, which obviously then left us short during our stay but we had the money returned before we left, so that was no problem. However, despite these couple of things that weren't clear beforehand, we would immediately return and I am sure we will again. It was the perfect holiday! Thank you Madame Leduc and hope to see you again one day!
