We stayed for 3 nights in June, house is stunning, the location is wonderful & Monique is a real gem of a hostess. Great days out visiting the Normandy beaches & towns, excellent dining nearby I simply cannot recommend highly enough.

We had a great experience staying in the San Paolo room. Beautiful views only minutes from the Normandy attractions. Our hostess was a delight even though we had very little French in which to communicate. She helped us find museums and attractions, and provided a comfortable and inviting home. Highly recommend for a relaxing weekend.

We stayed one night as we were passing through Normandy. Our hostess, Monique, was charming and showed us to the 'New York' loft room. This was nicely quirky to reflect loft living with black metal room dividers and wardrobe creating the right feeling against the pictures, ceiling beams and stunning views across the beach and out to sea. Breakfast was a standard continental offering but the rolls were particularly good. In the summer this would make a great location with just a stroll across the garden through the gate and on to miles of sandy beach. Good value for money.

We stayed here just prior to a friend's wedding. The house is beautiful and wonderfully located with fantastic views of the beach and stunning sunsets. The owner is very friendly and, despite our French not being completely up to scratch, we really enjoyed trying(!) to have conversations with her. A really tranquil, beautiful place to get away from it all! Thoroughly recommended.

Absolute heaven - you walk into the room, throw open the windows and immediately get a beautiful sea breeze and sounds of the ocean. The ocean side rooms are basically right on the beach with gorgeous views of the water, where horses run through the waves every morning. Monique is so kind and accommodating. Breakfast is pretty basic with fruit, yogurt, pastries and beverages. Wish we could have stayed here for more days - one night was not enough!
