The owners live on site are friendly and helpful adding welcoming touches on our arrival and support if you needed it. Bella their dog was always their to greet you a guard your door. The owners speak reasonable English and the apple man can guide you to an understanding of the unique delicacy of the area.

The pool was used every day all day by the 10 year olds and 13 yr old. One of the best things about the house is the large private garden, great for sunbathing as gets the sun all day. Outside shaded eating area with bbq was also great. The house itself is a sweet quirky cottage. It's actually split into 2 apartments which worked well for us as two families. You have to walk outside to go between the 2. Location is great, you can walk to local town with boulangerie 10 mins walk in the morning. Large supermarket a short drive past the nearest town. Beach within walking distance is okay but nicer beach is 20 min drive away at Benodet.

Was the property clean, was it well-maintained? IMPECCABLE! Did the owner or manager provide good customer service? FANTASTIQUE! Would you recommend this property to a friend or relative? 100% What activities, attractions and restaurants did you like or dislike? EVERY SINGLE THING! We have never left a review before after holidaying but this place was too good not to. Everything you can think of was thought of and provided. Location was perfect just a five minute stroll to the beach and within easy access of towns in either direction. We can't recommend it enough to anyone thinking of staying in this part of France.
