The owners are extremely kind and friendly but not overpowering. The area is lovely and quite central to the coasts and cities. We are truly glad we booked two weeks and not one. We not only returned home with wonderful memories of a fantastic holiday but in the owners we have made three special life long friends. We would gladly reccomend this property for a holiday to remember.Definitely A Star.

The apartment has a spacious living area and two good sized bedrooms and a modern well appointed kitchen and was very clean throughout. The owner made the booking process very easy with her emails in English although some of the instructions on the website were only in French. The town of Agon Coutainville is only a twenty minute walk along the promenade where you will find a variety of shops bars and restaurants. It set in rural area surrounded by many pretty villages but still close to the cathedral town of Coutances and the spectacular Mont St Michel. We really enjoyed our holiday here and hope to return and would recommend this apartment to our friends and family. David and Anne McCallum
