We stayed for one night and cannot fault this motel. We got a very warm welcome from the start, and were shown our room before we checked in. Our room was a basic one, with a view of the swimming pool. The room was small, simple and functional. It was completely adequate for an overnight stay, and as we said,...

We stayed here for two nights at the end of our French holiday. The family room was big with two bedrooms and a decent shower room. The location was great with a very short walk into the beach. When the tide is out it's rocky but very scenic. The pool area was never crowded and the water was very clean....

We had such a great time at the motel. We enjoyed the room and location on the beach and the pool. Team was welcoming from the start and made us feel comfortable. We enjoyed playing tennis and waking on the beach. . . >

Lovely location right on a small beach, far enough away from the busy tourist port of Le Cotiniere to be quiet and peaceful, but still within walking distance for the bars and restaurants. The rooms mostly have a terrace where you can opt to have room service breakfast, whilst it's only continental breakfast, the setting overlooking the sea makes it...

“I think they're all nice from what we've seen. It's just a question of whether or not you want a sea view and how much you want to spend. Also, you might want to avoid rooms on the sunny south side, as they'll be warmer at night.”
