Had plenty of wood so that we chilled and relaxed in front of the fire every night . Shampoo and hand soaps and toilet rolls provided. Village with two bakeries , two minutes away . So fresh baguettes every morning. Places like Barfleur , Saint vaast la hougue , Carentan and it's canal and port well worth a look . Great walks on the beaches too , miles of it when tides out. Thanks for a lovely place .
