5 nights in Dives-sur-Mer, May 2018
The home was as described, very clean and bright with a lovely view from the upstairs windows. We would not recommend it, though, for anyone from overseas: we were chagrined to find upon our arrival that there were no bed sheets, nor towels, nor toilet paper nor paper towels nor kitchen dish soap nor any toiletries. We could not have brought sheets and towels from the States in our luggage even if we had known this was needed, not to mention that our bedding is not the same size as French. We feel the property description should include the important fact that the guest needs to supply these things, or that they are available to rent for a specified charge. We paid 30 euros extra to rent sheets from the owner for the two beds we used. The description should state that the guest must furnish toilet paper and so on, also. Because of this situation, we would not be able to stay there again. For visitors from the Continent, who have room in their vehicles for all the above items, it would be delightful.
A second issue has to do with the safety of the staircase. The stair steps were very smooth and slippery. One of us took a nasty fall involving bruises and muscle tears. A simple solution might be the installation of rubber treads or carpeting on the stairs. Also, we found we needed to use the car for all shopping; we had hoped at least a little Franprix or Casino and boulangerie would be within walking distance. In conclusion, the owner was very easy to reach on-line and very pleasant. The town is delightfully quiet and pretty and we appreciated that.
Bolig ligger i gå afstand til strand og gode restauranter. Poolen er rigtig fin og 2 min fra bolig.
Det som trækker ned i min bedømmelse er for lille spisebord - kun plads til 4 personer og en lav rengøringsstandard. Derfor kun 3 ud af 5 stjerner.
Ideally located for visiting the coast, cider road, camembert, Caen, beaches débraquement, thalassotherapy Cabourg ...
