About this property

Comfortable, Roomy, Private, Close To All Amenities. This apartment is in a town setting.

Although the minimum no. of nights is 4 it may be negotiable with the owners to book for fewer night stays. There would be a supplementary charge for any such agreements. Please contact the owner for further details.

The apartment is situated at the top of our Belle Epoque (beautiful era) house with a private entrance and has commanding views over the pretty square and the Normandy Church dating back to 1819. Lighting at night enhances this picture postcard vista. The square is meticulously maintained by the local council and flowers, plants and trees are in bloom throughout the year. Just over the road from the house is the absolutely wonderful Pattisserie and the smell of freshly baked bread (particularly in the morning!) is mouthwatering. Home made croissants, cakes, ice cream (try the local maccarons, you'll be hooked) are irresistible. The Pattisserie is a hive of industry. There is a quiet bar next door to the house and restaurants and more bars behind the Church.
The local 'Viveco' is just across the road and is a general store selling all the basic foods and necessities needed. There is a Doctor's surgery in the square, just in case, and Dr Flipo speaks rather good English too! Within 100 metres is a bus stop where you can catch a SNCF bus that will take you to the train station and from there you could easily get to Paris in a couple of hours. If you just want to take a day off from touring the many different attractions why not relax in the large, mature garden with a glass of the local cider (pronounced cidre!)

Please note Check-in time is after 3.00pm and Check-out time is 10.00am, however suitcases etc can be left at the house at an agreed time.
