Very new and perfectly equipped and easily enough space for a couple on their own or with small child. Access to a large mature garden with good dining and lounging furniture. Jean Pierre and Joelle are perfect hosts, so helpful and entertaining, but not at all intrusive just the right amount of contact when needed especially when recommending places to visit/eat. Beach and bars are all very close by especially given the bicycles supplied. Les Sables provides all the facilities expected of a large seaside resort. Highly recommended!
