The pool and Jacuzzi were well maintained. The property was clean and well equipped for its capacity. The owners (live minutes away in the village) were very welcoming and helpful. We had a problem with the kitchen tap, and Steve the owner was on the scene promptly to rectify it. It is a good base for a family or extended family to holiday in Normandy. Most of the major visits (D Day beaches, Bayeaux, Mont St Michel ) are within 90mins - and the area is littered with castle and ancient monuments.

There is plenty of space around the house and garden and it is within 50m of the wide sandy beach. Access to the garage was available for our bikes and beach equipment. Excellent communication with the owner. On arrival, a quick phone call to Mme Ernouf the property manager, who gave us a tour of the house (good practice for my husband’s french) and advised on nearby daily markets. Local shops (in season) are less than 2 minutes walk away with a bakery, butchers and a small grocery store also fishmonger and fresh local produce stalls visit a few times a week. Nearby towns of Portbail and Barneville Carterat (10 mins and 20 mins by car) for supermarket shopping, market days and restaurants. At low tide, Portbail can be reached by walking through the dunes and across a narrow footbridge which is normally covered by the sea at high tide. The D Day landing beaches are 40 minutes drive away. A good base to explore the peninsula if you want to move away from the beach!
