A sweet studio

5 of 5
The welcome from Isabelle was warm, efficient and informative. The studio was beautifully presented, well equipped with a great shower room. We were a bit unlucky with the weather, but it didn't stop our enjoyment of a region with so many interesting places to visit.

Excellent Holiday accommodation

5 of 5
At a very short notice, Marian offered us her brilliant, quiet and comfortable accommodation. The warm welcome and Normandy cuisine( bread, cheese and cider) made us feel very welcome in France. The Chateau was fantastic with large and small swimming pools for us and our children to enjoy. The lovely well equiped garden was brilliant for our whole family. The children enjoyed bouncing on the trampoline and relaxing on the hammocks. The fire place kept the house warm and cosy. The chateau is within 30 minutes to the beaches, memorials, museums and the zoo to name just a few. The accommodation and surrounding areas are suitable for disabled persons because they can experience the freedom of open spaces and fun facilities. The bedrooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. We couldn't ask for more. The family bathrooms downstairs and upstairs were spacious and suitable for the whole family. The downstairs bedroom is very much accessible for wheelchair users. Thank you Marian for providing the facilities for families and children with special needs. Thank you for your warm welcome and the barbecue; your friends made us feel at home too.
