You’re right in town in a row of arty terraced houses sheltered from the brisk breeze. Step inside to find a luxurious, hotel-inspired vibe with a 24/7 concierge on site for arrivals and departures and all sorts of extras: big piles of pillows and towels, shower products and goodies for guests (pencils, note pads, scented candles…) branded with the Villa d’Eaux logo.
Four of the bedrooms open onto an amazing glass-roofed patio, the two attic rooms have sea views and there are enough sitting rooms to fill a castle. The little rooftop terrace is a pleasant place to bring up your bottle of wine and sip the afternoon away – it faces due west for stunning sunsets over quaint roofs and the sea.
Wander round the nearby market, amble over the road to the sandy beach, hire bikes, book a horse ride, visit the Paleospace museum. Charming Honfleur is a 35-minute drive and you can enjoy the beaches at Deauville on your way back for dinner – you’ll find all you need in the fully-fitted professional kitchen to cook for a large party.
