The house was perfect for our trip. It has a wonderful French country feel. Everything you need for a pleasant stay is provided. We enjoyed the quiet of the location yet it was an easy drive into Rouen and to Deauville and the beaches. We found some lovey restaurants in a small town on the river.
The only thing we missed was internet which would have been very helpful. None of us had a data plan that covered France and our phone coverage was spotty in that area, so we all had problems communicating back to work and planning excursions.
The owners were fantastic to deal with and left very clear instructions. We had no problems with anything in the house. I highly recommend the property even without internet! We all need to be unplugged sometimes, right!!
