If we ever comeback to this region we surely wil book this property again. Zo, nu in het Nederlands. Ons verblijf op dit prachtige plekje van Normandië was geweldig. De huisbaas was erg prettig en met vragen konden we altijd bij hem terecht. Beetje verliefd geworden op dit deel van Normandië. Rij op je gemak zoveel mogelijk de kustroutes en je komt door de meest fantastische dorpjes. Zelfs onze pubers (17 en twee keer 15) vonden het een leuke vakantie.
