Owner Luisa very friendly and obliging. The only thing that spoilt the stay was that contrary to what we had read on the Normandy beaches internet site- no dogs were allowed on any of the surrounding beaches. Even on leads.

The location was excellent, the facilities were perfect for our stay. We are keen cyclists, and cycled every day to all the surrounding villages and towns. We would definitely recommend it to others.
