Warm welcome from Caroline and a chilled bottle of champagne from Nicolas waiting. Plenty of room both inside and out for our party of 10 ranging in age from 62 years to 13 months. The children especially loved the pool and being indoors and 30 degrees outside they could swim without us worrying about sunburn. Couldn't be closer to the sea, we could hear the waves. Brilliant holiday.

The location is great - the beach is a few minutes walk - the weather was good and we enjoyed walking along front to the town. Francoise was very good and patient with us. This was our first visit to France in 20 years- we picked a great place for our visit and would love to return later in the year. Merci Francoise .
