    The shower needs someone to look about it. It works but the head needs to be tightened. I should have just emailed the owners but I forgot. And maybe some instructions for how to use the stove top. These are silly things. There was nothing wrong with this beautiful place!

    The view was perfection. The master bed was very clean and comfortable. Access to a vacuum was very appreciated as our dog brought in a lot of sand.

    The house door: the lock was difficult to open, and you had to close it with the key once you were inside. It was not a proper house door.

    Location: having such a beautiful beach in front of the house was wonderful. The apartment was very confortable and very clean.

    Wi-fi was slow and there were only 4 of us using it. I thought we were on the ground level, but 1st floor is the 2nd floor in France. The stairs are small and steep. I would not recommend the climb to someone with knee issues or age issues. Our friends were in the unit above, so they had two flights of stairs to climb. Expected to remove garbage and sheets. Not difficult, but just a little inconvenient if you are pressed for time when you are trying to leave. No paper towels or even salt and pepper at the facility. The refrigerator stunk when it was opened. No instructions on how to use the oven or stovetop. We were unfamiliar with the convection controls. The shower had no walls or curtain, and it was inside a deep tub that had no hand railings. Again, would not recommend to elderly or those with knee issues. Huge armoir in main bedroom was bulky and in too big for the room. A little space design in the whole apartment would go a long way. (Maybe an Ikea type closet and hide the crib elsewhere and make the extra bed a murphy bed or a folding cot).

    The staff at the reception hotel were friendly and English speaking, BONUS! The area is beautiful and a great example of the French countryside. Absolutely charming. Excellent view of the ocean from the Gite and location was perfect for our Normandy D-Day excursion (Asnelles is on Gold Beach). Very quiet off season stay. We loved the space of our apartment. We loved having a functioning kitchen and separate bathroom. Loved the cork floors and didn't have to worry about bringing in a little sand after a walk on the beach. We discovered the little short bread shop in Asnelles and were given the Royal treatment. Humbling, spiritual experience being able to stay where American troops fought and died.

    Would have liked an outside shower or tap to rinse off sandy feet and paws. L'Arromanche apartment has large windows (some open) but no outside space such as a balcony.

    We stayed in the first floor L'Arromanche apartment. The views are stunning. The apartment is modern, clean, practical and comfortable and so well designed to take advantage of the location.

    Sorry, but we don't understand why we were asked to strip the linens off the beds, place used towels in the entrance, and take the garbage to the center of town; guests in hotels are not asked to do this.

    Wonderful clean and spacious apartment in a very quiet location right on the beach next to Arromanches, convenient to all the battle sights. The best part of our stay was finding La Cale Restaurant within walking distance. We enjoyed our dinners so much that we went the next night as well, and then lunched there the following day. We all enjoyed every single course of Chef Bruno's cuisine. Our host, Yacine, was superb in helping us with translations, and suggestions for our food and wine.

    There was nothing we didn't like. Well, one or two of the steps squeaked very loudly so to avoid waking up anyone, we just learned to skip it. That's part of it being old and quaint.

    This cottage is more than the photos are able to represent. It is very nicely furnished - top notch quality appliances, linens, and everything in the bathroom. We love that it is very old yet and still feels that way in spite of the upgrades. The location on the beach walk could hardly be better. Breakfast (extra $) at the main hotel was superb!

    We were very pleasantly surprised by this property! Just needing a place to stay for two nights we selected this really based on availability. When we walked through the door, I actually got choked up. Huge glass windows looking right out at the beach, beautifully furnished, gorgeous kitchen...I was really shocked! The place was spotless and so comfortable, and did I mention the views? My only regret is that we didn't stay longer. We traveled with 2 kids, 12 and 9, who shared the pull-out sofa bed. Was just right for our family.

    Minor things. Stairs very creaky, which was difficult with a light sleeping baby! But not a massive deal. Would have been nice to have a few kitchen essentials for future reference (salt, pepper, cooking oil etc.)

    Private cottage, well-equipped, good shower with plenty of hot water (always important!), thirty seconds walk to Gold landing beach and a 5 minute drive into Arromanches les Bains. Really well positioned for exploring the D-Day sites, Bayeaux etc. Staff very friendly when picking up and dropping off keys in Crepon. Would certainly stay again if in the area.
