You’re in the middle of town: narrow, cobbled streets take you to the old port with its good restaurants for locally-caught seafood including oysters from the lagoon and moules frites. You’ll also find a new gallery with modern art, some superb beaches where music festivals are held in summer and a jousting festival in July.
Your tall and slim holiday home, most likely built in the 1800s for a fisherman and his family, is colourful, imaginative and comfortable. Walk straight into an open plan living space with books to read and an L-shaped kitchen. Owners Mark and Emil are foodies so you’ll find the kit you need for cooking, basics in the cupboards, plus cheese, saucisson and a bottle of wine.
Take a sundowner, or your supper, to the roof terrace for glorious sunsets over the water. You’ll feel like a local up here enjoying the sounds of the little town winding down for the night. Drift off in a four-poster with views.
