Numerous activities are organized on the beach including games for the children and a mini club. A mini golf course is located in front of the Casino, at a short distance from the house. Discover the neighbouring seaside resorts of Cabourg, Deauville and Trouville, with their casinos, grand hotels, gourmet restaurants and elegant shopping facilities, all within a 20 minute drive from the house. The quaint medieval town of Dives sur Mer, famous for being the departure point of William the Conqueror, with its beautiful commemorative church is a mere 5 minutes' drive away. For a day's excursion, why not visit the historic city of Caen with its castle, Bayeux with its renowned tapestry, the debarkation beaches and American cemetery along the coast, or the harbour towns of Honfleur and Le Havre. If you are travelling by car, a private off-street parking space can be reserved for you directly opposite the house;

Séjour très agréable à Houlgate dans une chambre d'hote
l'emplacement est excellent et la maison de notre hôtesse est une maison de caractère, très belle. Nous avons eu un contact très chaleureux avec notre hôtesse. .Un seul bémol, le lit de la 2ème chambre manquait de confort. Je recommande vraiment ces chambres d'hôte !

Accueil très sympathique, endroit propre et charmant, à deux pas de la plage!
Idéal pour un court séjour en famille, la propriétaire est à la fois discrète et disponible, cherchant à satisfaire au mieux ses hôtes. L'endroit est calme et agréable à vivre!

Je voudrais récupérer ma caution
très bien, petit déj sympa sauf que ma caution ne m'a pas été restituée. Si vous pouviez le dire à Nicole Somogyi, ce serait bien, car elle a été encaissée, et non restituée. Pourtant , le matin même je suis venue régler les petits dej, et elle aurait pu y penser.

A place to sleep
We arived later then aspected but the direction was waiting for us. The bedrooms are situated on the second floor. When you want to go from the biggest room to the bathroom you have to enter the other room. A little privicy.

Friendly host and pleasant accommodation
Accommodation was very good with all mod cons. Centrally located with easy walking access to beach, shops, bars and restaurants. There was a reserved car parking space available for a small fee. The host spoke English and was both friendly and accommodating.
