Very nice apartment in a residence on the edge of a vast sandy beach, within 5 minutes of a beautiful pine forest with many walking opportunities. The residence is located in the heart of a beautiful park, closed and guarded. The apartment is fully renovated and offers many benefits (induction hob, microwave, barbecue, washing machine, dishwasher ....)

Good pick for very good price compared to others in the area
+ Very friendly landlord; answers all questions promply (within hours); prefers french but speaks english as well
+ Clean appearance
+ Nice Balcony with comfortable seating for 8 persons; direction southeast -> shady in the evening;
+ Relatively well equipped kitchen (esp important for us: big fridge, additional freezer; enough room for two to max. three people to cook together). Everything shows usage but within normal holiday-appartment-limits.
+ big, comfy couch in living room; TV available
+ Wide, sandy, uncrowded beach very nearby (3 Minutes walking distance); clear water shower available; some stones within first meter of waterline - swimshoes recommended
+ situated at top level (2nd floor) and at the end of the outer hallway -> minimum number of direct neighbours
+ situated inside a protected facility; buildings not standing too closeby;
+ washing maschine available inside the appartement
+ grocery shopping nearby: small store withing 1km, bigger stores 10 minutes by car
- (with a small '+') parking situation: One numbered parking spot for each appartment available directly in front of entrance to building - which is very good for people coming with one car, but very little for an appartment housing eight people (presumably coming with two cars). Additional parking available on the compound a little farther away.
- cramped, windowless and rather poorly equipped bathrooms (e.g. very small shower with curtain - which sticks to you the instant you enter that shower; water drainage in other bathroom very poor)
- overall the appartment is smaller than it looks in photos. Eight grownups might stand on each others toes. We were 4 grownups and three children and happy enough.
- beds are "well used" - in one bed you feel the springs, in the other you sink into the matress. Also, if you come with 8 people, at least two of them should really like each other, because they'll share a rather small matress.
- most of the cupboards and shelfs are occupied with stuff (presumably owned by the landlord) - little room to actually unpack your bags
Good to know:
Directly nearby is a camping area with nightly entertainment (movienights, karaoke, kids entertainment, dancing, ...). Starting around 8 pm this is very audible, but the volume is reduced to acceptable sleeping-level around 11 pm. So we took this rather as entertaining than as disturbing.
