We loved this house. It's located right in the old port (the map is not showing the correct location. It's on rue de la Madelaine, it takes one minute to walk to the river). I loved the town, the people and the location (close to St.Malo, Mont St. Michel...). More importantly, my kids (5 and 8) loved the house. It felt like home, after a long day of touring.
The only negatives are that the washer doesn't spin very well so the clothes are very wet and don't dry in the damp garage (I would hang them in the room and it would take a good 48 hrs to dry). The other negative is that the house could have been a bit cleaner (I'm pretty picky though). The linen's were very clean. That said, I would stay there again in a heart beat. Loved it!

Well located in the port area - the climb to the town keeps you fit :-) Well equipped and has integral garage - but not the easiest to get in and out of if someone parks in the road opposite! However, we were able to park outside the front door for most of our stay. Stairs are fairly steep, so might not be suited to someone with limited mobility.We spent a very pleasant couple of weeks here.
