Superb sea views and central location

4 of 5
First of all the location is superb: the views from the balcony are wonderful and the apartment is right in the middle of the town with walks along the promenade and the beach right on the doorstep and with all the amenities of Cabourg within easy walking distance. The apartment itself is compact, perfect for two people, maybe a little snug for four. It provides everything one needs for a comfortable stay and we had a great time there. On the downside, it could do with updated decoration in some areas (especially the door to the apartment on the inside), the kitchen is extremely well appointed but because of that very fact the machines leave very little useful space. We were not very keen on the ergonomic pillows which we had to abandon. These were minor facts which did not prevent us having a great holiday.

Lovely holiday flat in great location

4 of 5
Apartment is ideal for a family of four, well-equipped and very conveniently located for the beaches. Good communication from the owner - make sure you follow instructions for parking at back of apartment, we didn't and ended up going round the block a couple of times. A shop on the marina sells croissants and baguettes for breakfast, so no need to walk to bakeries in town.
