The house is pretty tired, agent wasn't very helpful and the pool wasn't opened on the stated date.
It was a challenge from the start, even before we started the holiday the agent was reluctant to open up the house on the evening of our arrival, the result of this was that we had to leave the ferry at Cherbourg and race all the way to the house with no time to spare just so we weren't too late for the agent to let us in - so a stressy start to the holiday.
The house was not particularly clean when we arrived so the first thing we did was sweep up and wash the cutlery and dishes before using them.
The bathrooms and fittings were very tired, taps were worn, main bathroom shower tray crazed and in need of unblocking. Also the back door lock was worn and wouldn't stay locked without us putting a sticking plaster over it so no very secure.
If you have children then make sure you get the wifi code on arrival, we had to wait for the agent to open again as they are closed on Sundays. This may seem a minor thing but these days almost essential to younger people.
Finally the pool, wasn't open when we arrived as we came a few days before the stated dates on the website said it was available, however it was due to be opened for the last couple of days of our holiday (it had a locked cover over it). Unfortunately we were told that it simply couldn't be opened so watch out for this if you are booking anywhere near the dates stated on the website to avoid disappointment. The pool was still being heated using the electricity we were paying for during our stay and to add final insult to injury just as we drove away from the house on the last day the pool person turned up to get it open and ready for use!
All in all, the house didn't really help us have a good holiday which is a shame as it could be a very nice place with a bit of repair and refreshment.
Sehr schönes Haus, gute Ausstattung, gute Lage, Kinder geeignet
Das Haus ist sehr schön und ist gut ausgestattet (auch in der Küche). Es gibt eine große Auswahl an Büchern in verschiedenen Sprachen. Es gibt sogar jede Menge Spielsachen, kleine Stühle und einen Kindertisch. Der Pool war sauber und konnte verschlossen werden (was bei Kinder sehr wichtig ist). Das Haus liegt nah am wunderschönen Strand. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und würden wieder kommen.
Allerdings könnte das Haus und der Garten etwas Pflege vertragen (hier und da einen neuen Anstrich, die Pflanzen am Eingang gehören geschnitten etc.)
