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.

Lovely seaside house

5 of 5
This is a cute little house, very close to the Port Guillaume ( 6 min) walk and to the local restaurants..one of which is at the top of the road. The owners who met us with the key were lovely, we can't speak much French and they didn't speak much English but we got by very well.The lounge is small but sunny and leads out to a small courtyard which is a suntrap. One twin bedroom downstairs with shower room and a double ensuite upstairs. The property was clean and neat. No kettle , just a senseo machine. But take a travel kettle or as we did buy one from the local Hyper u very cheaply. 2 supermarkets are within a 5 min drive and the centre of Dives is a 10 min walk away. The large indoor market is fabulous,as is the street market. We had a lovely time and the house is in the perfect location ,so close to everything . Thank you Armelle and Christian for the warm welcome.
