Fantastic location overlooking the beach.
This is a lovely holiday home, set up for beach life with easily cleaned floors and a relaxed feel. Perfect for us with our dog.
There's plenty of garden as well as a huge sandy beach - which when we went at the end of August beginning of Sept was completely empty. Don't miss the seat high up on the bank behind which gives a wonderful view of the beach - we didn't find it until our second week. (The house has a kettle unusual for the continent but you might want bigger mugs.)Then we had a cup of tea up there every day but it can be a bit precarious carrying it up!
The owners mother visits the next door property every other day and is a lovely friendly happy lady who speaks good english.
We loved just listening to the sea and watching the sea. You can see that the tide does not come in at the same rate all the time it's the rule of 1/12ths apparently. And we loved watching the fishing and other boats out on the sea - a good pair of binoculars is a must and look on the vessel finder website to find out which boats are in front of you.
There's a local shop about a mile away that does fresh bread and croissants each morning. The restaurants at either end of the promenade are good, although easier if it's dark to walk to Hotel Casino as only one way has street lights. Or pop along to the next place Grandchamp Maisy that has 2 artisan bakeries, some lovely restaurants and a Carrefour.
Also lots of great places to go Caen very good great market on Sunday, Bayeux , Mont St Michel ( sat nav said 2 hours away but we got there in just over 1 hr 20 by going directions of lady in the local shop - I would suggest go late in afternoon - we went early and a mistake v crowded) and Cherbourg. And of course all the war museums - Pegasus Bridge museum allows dogs.
I would definitely stay again so can't say more than that really.
