We stayed at the house between 12-19 August. Prior to arrival the owner was prompt in responding to me. We were given good, clear directions and the house was easy to find. The owner met us promptly and guided us around the house. We were welcomed with local cheese on our arrival. The house was well equipped and well laid out. Some instructions were in French such as the washing machine needed a tap turning the water on and once we knew this it was simple to operate. The downstairs bedroom and bathroom were perfect for my elderly /disabled parents. The kitchen, although small, served us well. We took some items such as dishwasher tablets, tea bags, a tea cloth and dish cloth and we needed these. Upstairs was plenty of room for three adults and three children. The house was very child friendly with very little to damage or break, stair gates, plastic plates and cups etc. The garage was well equipped with children's toys, high chairs, pushchairs, bikes etc
The owner was friendly, she lived next door but left us alone. We arrived and there was no hot water which was bizarre but we managed and luckily we didn't have that problem for the rest of the week.
The local area was good to explore and the village restaurant did lovely evening meals and the bakery was fantastic. We would have liked a welcome book with a list of contacts such as the owners phone number, emergency numbers e.g. Hospital or doctor. Information about the local area, opening times (which are often unpredictable) and local restaurants would have been useful. We discovered La Gare in Envermeu which was amazing and child friendly. Dieppe was a lovely seaside town.
We had to leave €500 in deposit which was a huge sum of cash to leave and then have returned at the end of the holiday as we now have €500 which we haven't spent. This could be readdressed perhaps but I understand that they need some security however there was no flexibility. We got lost in translation on occasion but we managed.
We had a fantastic stay, the house and garden were beautiful, we spent many happy days at the house as well as exploring the area. There was plenty for the children to play with outside. We would happily recommend this to our friends and would definitely stay here again.
Nice, well appointed apartment in quiet town of Freville Escarbotin, good location for exploring the surrounding area. Quirky round shape and decor make it an interesting space.
In August Freville is very quiet with most businesses including bars and restaurants shut, took us a while to find places to shop and eat.
Good cycling around the Baie de Somme and bike rental available, great cycleways and flat.. perfect cycling terrain for families.
