Séjour en famille

  • 4 of 5

Le séjour passé dans le gîte était très agréable. Les propriétaires sont très avenants. Une piscine dans la propriété serait l'idéal :)

Toute petite remarque : nous avions acheté des crustacés à St Vaast La Hougue et nous n'avons pas trouvé de casse-noix ou de pinces spéciales pour crustacés dans les tiroirs.

Prima prijs/kwaliteit verhouding

  • 5 of 5

Pluspunten: erg groot, afwasmachine, bedden opgemaakt, 2 wc's, grote ijskast met vriezer, oven, koffiezetapparaat, heel veel pannen etc, De eigenaresse had brood en cider bij aankomst, heerlijke plek om buiten te zitten met veel tuin- en ligstoelen. Schoonmaakmiddelen en doekjes aanwezig.

Minpunten: vuilcontainers moeilijk te vinden, winkels dicht op zondag ( en 1 mei)

We hebben een heerlijk verblijf gehad.
