Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 10
Barneville-Carteret, Manche, Basse-Normandie, Normandy

The Space
The house is located in the outskirts of a small village called Hatainville, approximately 2 km from Barneville Carteret.

This property was excellent. Very clean, quiet, and perfect for a family vacation. The dunes and the beach are close by and a lovely walk. The owners gave us excellent recommendations for local seafood restuarants and shops (the butcher was fabulous)! The property itself was great - comfortable beds, great kitchen and a bbq as well as an encolosed yard...

We booked a family villa for a week looking for a short get away , to our delight the property sits in a fantastic location and has spacious surroundings to accommodate 2 kids with their day to day activities. If you are well spoken in French you'll have no problem with communicating with a local agent who met us upon...

Management response:

The lady who was welcoming you was supposed to clean the house, and bring her...
