This is the first time we have stayed in a log cabin styled house and after getting our bearings we found it totally charming. All amenities are provided and the living area is really comfortable. The garden is even better than suggested by the photos with a natural feel yet well maintained with lots of space and interesting nooks and crannies. We spent a lot of time in it in the lovely weather we had. Our dog had a great time in a totally secure area (important as there is a intermittently busy road next to the house) and I imagine it would be perfect for children.
We found the town of Veules to be charming, interesting and full of roses! The house is within about a mile of the centre and seafront and we were able to walk to the shops and restaurants in the evening. The use of a bike meant a quick return trip for the morning baguette and we walked along the famous river everyday.There were enough eating places for us but the choice was more limited midweek as we were just out of season.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and grew more and more fond of our delightful accommodation as the week wore on. Caroline was a perfect host who did everything to make our stay enjoyable and we would not hesitate to return one day.
Having a toddler, finding somewhere to go on holiday that is child friendly can be a challenge, but this gite is perfect. It's in a lovely quiet location just a short walk from a pebble beach.
The owners are very friendly and Agnes was very quick to respond to all my queries. I cannot fault her english and we had no issues over communication. A really smooth transaction from start to finish.
The holiday home its self, has a lovely gated garden which my daughter adored and the roses are just breathtaking. As a group of 2 couples and 1 toddler, it was the perfect size for all of us without the feeling of tripping over each other. It is very clean and well maintained and we were really pleased that we had chosen it for the week.
The kitchen is open plan which was lovely when preparing meals as you didn't end up shut away in a room with no interaction. It made it a very social experience. The electric oven and hob are lovely and new and very straight forward to use.
The fact that one bedroom has an en suite worked out perfectly as it meant we had a bathroom for each couple and reduced any waiting times for bathing and getting ready. The bedrooms themselves are large and clean and very welcoming and comfortable.
The location is exceptionally quiet, we hardly saw anyone unless we walked down to the beach where there is a small cafe which serves reasonably priced fish and chips and mussels. The locals were friendly when we ventured down on several occasions and we were greeted with a friendly 'Bonjour' which was really nice. There is also a small child's park next to the eatery which is well maintained and gated.
We had no issues with parking, there is plenty of space to park on the road although there is a parking space in the garden if needed. Calais and Paris are only 2 and a half hours away by car. There are plenty of supermarkets within a few minutes driving distance.
We popped into Fecamp for a day and had an amazing meal at one of the local restaurants. The patisseries had us drooling and going back to the holiday home with pretty boxes filled with cakes.
Etretat is also nearby which is a lovely place to visit and walk around, with history, gift shops and restaurants, although parking was tricky.
We wanted a relaxing vacation where we could just chill out and recharge and this is an idyll place to do so. I was very pleased with the price to hire the gite and would have no hesitation on returning to stay here in the near future.
