Fantastic location, not too far from the port, the beach (choice of) and the shops of Dives sur Mer. We bought and ate fresh fish from the local fish market. Room for everybody in the house and baby and dog friendly. Good French family holiday.

Perfect location, beautifully furnished and very well equipped (particularly the kitchen). Delightful owners who made everything very easy. I can only further endorse my positive review by saying that we have booked again for November this year!
