Beautiful area, great to enjoy the sea, the forest and some horseback riding! The house is simple but nice, you can light the fireplace and make it cosy. Raoul was a very nice host (virtually) and we had a nice welcome from his children at the location itself.

I rented Raoul's place to celebrate my birthday this year. We had a great time there, it is the perfect place for such an event. The place is rustic, as advertised in the description and pictures. It has all the necessary things for a great stay over a weekend. A typical normandy house with a big fireplace. We were a group of friends from all over Europe (and also from Kazakhstan), and all my guests loved the place. I definitely recommend it! Raoul was accessible through email when needed, and he gave us clear instructions and a local contact for getting the keys, etc.

This is a great venue to explore Deauville, Villers and the surrounding countryside. The kitchen, lounge and bedrooms have a lovely rustic charm with exposed beams and wood/ cobbled floor. The highlight is the setting with immediate access to woodland walks.

I and ten friends stayed at Raoul's Normandy house and it was fantastic! Raoul responded to emails almost immediately and accommodated our late arrival. The house was great for large amounts of people (it could have fit twice our number) and since we were looking for a dormitory-style house away from the city, it matched our need perfectly. Thanks again Raoul!

Logement rustique mais plein de charme. Les espaces extérieurs sont très appréciables et la mer est a proximité. Parfait pour un week-end entre amis !

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour, le gîte est très sympathique, très joli et convient tout à fait à un week-end entre amis (nombreux). Le temps ayant été clément, nous avons pu déjeuner dans le jardin et nous baigner à Villers-sur-Mer. La réservation, l'accueil sont très simples et Raoul est extrêmement cordial et précis. Nous reviendrons certainement l'an prochain, si le gîte est disponible ! En tout cas, merci pour tout.
