Appartement superbe et parfaitement situé !

5 of 5
Nous avons passé un séjour de rêve dans ce très bel appartement. Se réchauffer devant un bon feu de cheminée après une longue promenade sur la côte sauvage tout en regardant les bateaux sortir du petit port de Saint Martin, que demander de mieux ! Peut être les délicieuses huitres du port de la Flotte ou les glaces et gauffres de la Martinière ? Merci à notre hôte très accueillante pour ses bons conseils. On recommande !

Fantastic villa for 2 families to share with small children.

5 of 5
A fabulous place to stay as a relaxing retreat, we were 2 families and had a wonderful stay. Large luxury Villa with very well thought out sitting and eating areas inside and out. Very well equipt kitchen for the home chef! Gardens fully enclosed keeping little ones safe. The pool is heated as described at a steady 29 degrees making swimming a very pleasant experience. Again the pool is kiddy friendly as it can be closed off with locking patio doors. More than adequate wifi speeds and great it tech available. Fully equipped laundry equipment - washer, dryer. No hidden costs / charges. Please be awear that there is not much here for more independent teenagers or for those looking for a strolling, wine drinking, cafe culture. The only criticism I would have is there is no air con or fans available and the bikes needed puncture repairs before we could use them and really would benefit from some maintenance. These are very minor issues and I would have no problems recommending this venue to friends and family, and we will be looking to book to stay here again. Many thanks to Nicholas for his superb communication and for helping make this a stress free vacation.
