A nice apartment in a quite area of Cabourb

4 of 5
We stayed here in late august with our 10 year old son. We found the apartment to be nice, in a very quiet area of Cabourg. We had nice weather and the Balcony was a real bonus. The apartment was equipped pretty well, with a good selection of utensils in the kitchen, the only thing we found missing was a kettle, but we just boiled water in a pan instead. The center of Cabourb was about a 15 minute walk, where we found a good selection of eateries which would suit most budgets. The beach was about a 5 minute walk and was huge and just lovely. The tide does go out a long way so you need to ensure you time your visit with the tide if you want to go for a dip. I have given this 4 stars as the shower was an over bath thing next to the sloping roof which was a little awkward, and there was nowhere to put the showerhead as you washed your hair. We do speak a little french but the person showing us around spoke zero English (or just declined to) which made things a little awkward. I was also disappointed to find we had to pay an extra 30 euros for bedding, which i did not know about when booking. But they are all fairly minor points, its a nice quite apartment for a reasonable price.

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.
