“A very well equipped house, very comfortable and looked even better than the photos on line”
Reviewed 3 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The house was set in a very quiet area but close to shops, restaurants and beach. Perfect for people with children. The garden and table tennis table was extremely popular with them. The kitchen was also well equipped so it was extremely easy to cook a meal for the whole family and having a dishwasher was a bonus. Plenty of places to visit within easy reach.
We really could not find fault.

“Ideal location for the beach or Battlefields.”
Reviewed 22 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

From the time we booked Le Pin Sable we experienced fantastic advice and assistance from the owner. Having been "volunteered" to locate and rent a property I duly went on the Tripadvisor site and within a short period of time had achieved my objective, so contacted the owner and booked. Directions to the property were sent to us with a contact number to call when nearing the property.
We were delighted to find Le Pin sable in a quiet suburb of Merville, and were very pleased when we entered the Villa with the cleanliness and facilities, as had been advertised. ith a supermarket less than 3 minutes walk from the Villa, the Beach a further 2 minutes. Plenty of Cafes, Bistro's and resteraunts, all within easy walking distance.
An ideal place for Families or groups , friendly and helpful locals, perfect for just relaxing or exploring the area.
The best part was the Villa and location, the worst part was leaving.

“The perfect base for our WEG adventures”
Reviewed 13 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A group of us travelled to Normandy from Australia to spectate at the Jeux Equestres Mondiaux (WEG) at Caen taking place late August- early September 2014. Le Pin Sable was our base and what a wonderful house to spend 2 weeks in - plenty of room for all of us - clean, bright and very comfortable and enough room for everyone to have a wonderful time - everything we needed in the house plus close to shops and a great variety of cafes and restaurants, lovely beach for morning walks, public transport into Caen when we needed it and a central position for exploring the rest of Normandy when we had days off. Thank you!

“A great place for young children”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

We've recently returned from a great holiday at Le Pin Sable. The house was exactly as described, of a high standard and clean on arrival. The house was great for our young children with a few books and games in the house and sandpit and balls etc for outside. The enormous garage was great to play in when it rained. There was lots for older children too, with board games, table tennis and badminton. The house is only 5 mins walk to the beach and a large children's park. Shops and restaurants are a bit closer. Lots more beaches and D Day sites a short drive away. All questions to the owner were responded to within minutes. We'll return on our next visit to Normandy.
