What we have here is failure to communicate
The apartment was beautiful and quiet and the location private and picturesque - Monet painted les falaises des Petites-Dalles between 1879 and 1885.
However, we received no communication from Mathilde except how to pay her. I messaged her the day before our arrival, the morning and afternoon of, and as we sat outside the apartment waiting to get in -- with very little gas in our car, almost no cell reception, the sun setting and no place to sleep.
Fortunately for us, there was one neighbor who was at home, and I was able to communicate with her in my broken French our situation. She happened to know one of Mathilde's property managers who lives nearby. He came by - was extremely nice and helpful - and got us settled. After we were let in, there were instructions on how to check in and what number to call to do so. Useless information once you're already inside. Then, after we had been in the apartment for a half hour or so, we got a rather rude-sounding message from Mathilde's mother that THEY were waiting for US to check in.
On top of it all - despite paying a housekeeping fee - we were instructed for check-out to strip the bed, tidy the apartment, do the dishes, and sweep the floor. I have no problem with and I think it's prudent to ensure you treat someone else's apartment as your own, but this requirement was over-the-top.
Next time we visit France, we will surely come to Normandy. I was told by several friends that Étratat is stunning, and the nearby city of Fécamp that we visited was nice. However, it will be a cold day in hell before we rent from this owner again.
I'm sorry to hear your struggle about communication, we usually don't have this feedback from other travellers... I guess it was "missed" this time, we'll make sure it doesn't happen again.
lieu tranquille isolé
Pour ceux qui cherchent vue sur la mer, sur les fameuses falaises, et tranquillité ou ceux qui souhaitent faire du surf, lieu adapté ; possibilité de promenades (voiture nécessaire). Pas de commerce sur place et pas de possibilité de promenade à pied sur place immédiate.
Appartement soigné sans luxe; attention pas de réseau téléphonique SFR en tous cas (aller sur la jetée à 20 m), mais wifi
Lieu adapté pour se resourcer, bien agréable
Manque de contact avec la gérante photos un peu tronqué cafetière électrique hors de service rapport qualité-prix moins
Une vue qui reste dans vos yeux longtemps.
Nous reviendrons dans ce petit nid

Nice location nearest to the beach
The organisation was more than bad. In the morning I told the owner via FEWOdirekt that we´ll arrive at 17.00 o´clock. Didn´t get an answer. When we arrived, nobody was there and by phone she wasn´t available. Very helpful neighbours made it possible that we could enter the apartment finally at half past 6. Some lamps didn´t work and there was a terrible odor in the cupboard, was not very clean in there. If someone would take better care of this apartment, it would be nice. When leaving we had a problem again, the owner told me a false code for the keykeeper at the door and I had to try for an hour til it worked.
