The apartment is great, with everything you need. Very convenient to have parking underneath the building and a lift! Dives sur Mer is a lovely historic town There is so much to do in the area. Michele, the owner, is very helpful with great communication and she is extremely friendly. Would highly recommend this fabulous apartment.
