Started good, ended badly. When we made the booking the house wasn't available for the last night, so the Christine offered us to stay at another apartment which was in her own words "same comfort". Since there were not pictures available for the 2nd apartment, we agreed to take the other apartment only for the last night. Unfortunately we discovered that this was far from the truth. The first apartment had 6 toilets and 4 showers and an amazing kitchen. The other apartment, wasn't really an apartment. it was broken to two parts: 1) two rooms shared in Christine's house (with some sort of a barrier), with one toilet and shower shared with a different guest and no kitchen. These two rooms had no privacy at all. 2) A small apartment upstairs which was only accessible from the outside with one toilet and a shower. Sharing the toilet with a stranger was very embarrassing for us and if we would have known about it, we would have never booked the apartment. I think that calling this the same level of comfort and charging the same amount of money is outrageous. The first apartment was good, so all in all, it wasn't a complete failure, but as `I said, it ended badly for us. The things we liked about the first apartment: 1) Kitchen is well equipped. 2) Private shower for every room. 3) The house is big and all rooms are at the same level. 4) Excellent location and a nice neighborhood with nearby (few KM drive) grocery store and restaurants. The things we didn't like about the first apartment: 1) Very limited supply of basic things such as toilet paper and garbage bags. In any other place these things were supplied. 2) The kitchen has a very small fridge. There's another one available in the barn outside kitchen, but it less comfortable to use and located outside the locked door. I don't think anyone will ever mess with your stuff, but it's still an odd feeling that your food is outside the locked doors. 3) One of the rooms has no regular window. There's a window at the roof, but the room has very little light and very little fresh air. The apartment(s) for the last night were very disappointing as I mentioned earlier: 1) Only two showers (one shared with a stranger) for 9 people 2) Small kitchen only for the top apartment (4 people). 3) small rooms in the top apartment. 4) Rooms are not interconnected. 5) No privacy, Christine was around without any warning.

Hello, we have spent a really good weekend of three days in the cottage "La Normande". We were a group of 17 people and everyone have found its bearings. We weren't cramped and the bedding was very good. The accommodation has everything you need in terms of home appliance, dishes and bathrooms. Christine is a very nice hostess who is very available to answer to your questions. I highly recommend this accommodation. Thank you !

We stayed for three nights at Christine's place. The lodging is in a converted farm structure behind the farm house in the listing. It features a great room with three tables, chairs, a couch and tv. It is brightly lit through a wall of glass doors. The opposite end of the room has a kitchen with fridge, microwave and dishwasher. There is a side room with an oven if needed. Leading from that room are four rooms each with a bathroom en suite. These rooms are on the small side but work well. One complaint is that there are no outside windows on these rooms, so it may get a little stuffy for some. There is also a delightful patio with table and chairs outside with a view of the farms surrounding this property. There is ample parking. We stayed here with 8 people and the space worked well.

I had to cancel because the guest had been so enthousiast to book when she just wanted to ask some questions. I ask Air BnB to give 24 hours to the guest to cancel his demand. Please!!
