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!... More

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,... More

This small, slightly quirky place is appealingly situated, backing on to the beach and with its own private parking. The view from our room (Jakarta) was a lovely one of rolling surf. The beach itself proved very good for kite-flying! The room was thoughtfully decorated, with an excellent shower. Some noise from an adjacent room, but otherwise no complaints. The... More

My son and I had a few days in France. We skipped Paris (mostly - we did stop for suppliers at Eric Kayser...) and spent a few days on the Normandy coast. This hotel is very nice - clean rooms, comfortable beds, nice breakfast and great location. The host is very helpful and friendly. What else does one need?

We stayed for only a night, and would gladly come back for a week. Charming landlady (she speaks no English and we spoke little French, but we all figured it out), lovely accommodations, and a stunning beach view. Such a beautiful retreat! Excellent breakfast, too!

We stayed here for six nights and enjoyed every moment. The room was super clean. I don't ever think I've seen perfectly white grout in a hotel or b&b before but I swear that wasn't a speck of dirt! Wonderful views, of course, but be prepared to go up some stairs to get to your room. Also be aware that... More

We stayed for one night and loved it! The house is right on a long sandy beach and is wonderful. All the rooms have been well decorated and not cheaply either. Monique bought the property around 2 years ago and has revamped it as a retirement project. She is just lovely - chatty and attentive. Great breakfast and there is... More

It's all about the amazing beech, just outside the hotel's gate. The rooms although clean - are small and not more then adequate. But the beach is wide and marvelous... look for the horses trotting along the beach in the morning and evening.

Superb location with views right over the long sandy beach and the sea. Peaceful and relaxing. Monique was a charming, welcoming and attentive host. Breakfasts were delicious and the bedroom very stylish and well equipped with comfy bed. Would certainly return and recommend to anyone else.
