Although reviewing a 7 on the facilities we did feel that it matched how the property had been advertised and really suited us as families with small children. It is nice to be in a property that you feel you an really live in while your away instead of staying in a SHOWHOME where you are nervous to move anything for fear of damage.

The owner was very attentive to our needs and had even offered extra beds to accommodate our bespoke needs. Although we rejected this it was great to be offered and we felt that it was no trouble.

The size of the property and local scenery was stunning and we managed to walk every night and enjoy the spectacular views. A real highlight was how pleasant and friendly the neighbours were as they always extended a welcome whether we walked past or saw them at the supermarket.

The beaches were closer than we thought and we particularly enjoyed the beaches around Granville which had Sea Water Pools that could be used when the tide was out - this meant we had entertainment for the kids all day. Granville and some of the other towns offered place to go for the adults while others stayed on the beach with the kids.

In short La Pointerie suited us down to the ground,I would recommend to young families in groups that this is a property that has enough space and facilities to make going home at the end of each day really comfortable.
