We were met on arrival and shown the property. The house was extremely well furnished and equipped. The outside area was delightful, on the water front and with comfortable dining and seating areas. We used the bicycles that were provided to explore the local beaches and to go to town. The property was wired for internet and cable tv but was not enabled, this would have been an added bonus. There was a high quality sound and vision tv system with dvd player and French network tv channels were available.

A very well equipped and located home in the marina. The house is spacious and the garden area is right on the marina where you can watch the comings and goings. We enjoyed many evening meals outside on the patio. All the furnishings were of high quality. We would definitely stay again.
