The fixtures and appliances in the apartment are top quality and there is everything you need. It is two or three minutes from the harbour with several bars and restaurants and also the wonderful little ferry across to Benodet with a lot more facilities. Across the road from the apartment is an excellent Epicerie which has most things you will need - fresh bread, fruit, vegetables, meats and cheeses.

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.

Very well situated with a good choice of children friendly beaches. Sylvie made us feel very welcome. Would defiantly recommend this property.
