A fantastic place and just perfect

5 of 5
We loved the property and everything suited us down to the ground. However, we did think that on arrival it would have been good to have been provided with basics such as salt and pepper and tea and coffee. However, that did not spoil our stay or will not stop us returning. The beds were too small in that they were not long enough but that was the only issue. We loved the place and Laurent and his wife were great. Extremely helpful. The house is so well placed and so central to everything we just loved it. Thank you very much.

Lovely house with beautiful spacious garden and sea view, very close to La Cible & St Martin.

4 of 5
Warm welcome from the owners who were very kind, showed us around and had left some ice cream for our son in the freezer which was really thoughtful! The best thing about the house is the garden which is big with a lovely view, pretty flowers, an outdoor eating space, sun loungers and barbecue. The only thing that could possibly improve it would be a pool but it is very close to the beach and also the municipal pool. Super convenient for the Intermarché and a local bakery and the kitchen is easy to use and well stocked with everything you might need. The whole house is clean and comfortable; bed sheets were provided at a small extra cost. Overall we spent a happy week here and it felt like properly living on the island. We would definitely recommend this house. Wonderful.
