An unusual warning to would be renters-the photos do not do it justice. This is a very comfortably furnished and stylish apartment in a very central yet quiet location. Elegance is the appropriate word for the flat and the square outside. We went in very cold weather but heating was perfect. The owners are very nice people who looked after us well and provide lost of small extras that are not expected in this type of renting but do make difference. We were given wine, beer, and things like tea bags and coffee, tissues and bread, milk and cakes and more that 2 toilet rolls! I would recommend a nearby Boulangerie in Rue Caponiere ( OK I admit my sister in law) for excellent products of both France and England and English spoken.

The local village is very quiet but Potigny - 10 mins drive - has all you need. Falaise is near, the coast easily reachable. Idyllic.
