The welcome bottle of wine was much appreciated. The apartment is very convenient for the supermarket as well as the beach and the centre being so close. The real delight is the well equipped kitchen, so nice to be accommodated in an apartment that has enough glasses, plates etc for all your needs. Plenty of pans and other kitchen equipment. Ironing board and washing machine very useful. I loved the balcony overlooking the garden. Plenty of space to sit and eat a meal as well as dry swimming stuff. I love the Camargue and Saintes Marie's De La Mer and the apartment Joli Bright lived up to expectations. A big thank you to Jean-Louis and his wife, they care about their guests. Best wishes, Simon, Liz, Nick and Judy.

A table on each side to catch the sun and eat outside, a little kitchen, excellent shower, comfortable bed and large pull-out sofabed. Not much room to walk around the sofafbed when it's pulled out and air cnditioning only in the bedroom part, really only a room and a half, but very comfortable. Elegant decoration, all white and clean. Lovely people, great for kids. Easy short walk into town, plenty of nice places to eat. Highly reccomended.
