“A distinctive and well equipped house in a superb location.”
Reviewed 28 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The property is really well equipped and full of character. The location is ideal for town, amenities, beach and local places of interest. Bars and good restaurants are on the doorstep but the house and garden are still a place for quiet relaxation with shade and a lawn for games. We thought the local Merville battery museum was informative and full of interest and Omaha beach is full of natural beauty and poignant memories. We had a wonderful week and wished we had been able to stay longer.

“A superb holiday rental”
Reviewed 20 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This was our first time renting in France. What a great choice we made. This beautiful house equipped with everything you could want was perfect for our stay in Normandy. Comfortable beds, wonderful kitchen and just so spacious ! The location is great too. Just ten minutes walk to the local supermarket, a selection of restaurants and the magnificent beach. As a touring base you are also within easy reach of the main coastal route. For a family holiday, "The Sandy Pine" simply has it all. We happily recommend this property as a great holiday rental.

“A very well equipped house, very comfortable and looked even better than the photos on line”
Reviewed 2 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The house was set in a very quiet area but close to shops, restaurants and beach. Perfect for people with children. The garden and table tennis table was extremely popular with them. The kitchen was also well equipped so it was extremely easy to cook a meal for the whole family and having a dishwasher was a bonus. Plenty of places to visit within easy reach.
We really could not find fault.

“Ideal location for the beach or Battlefields.”
Reviewed 21 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

From the time we booked Le Pin Sable we experienced fantastic advice and assistance from the owner. Having been "volunteered" to locate and rent a property I duly went on the Tripadvisor site and within a short period of time had achieved my objective, so contacted the owner and booked. Directions to the property were sent to us with a contact number to call when nearing the property.
We were delighted to find Le Pin sable in a quiet suburb of Merville, and were very pleased when we entered the Villa with the cleanliness and facilities, as had been advertised. ith a supermarket less than 3 minutes walk from the Villa, the Beach a further 2 minutes. Plenty of Cafes, Bistro's and resteraunts, all within easy walking distance.
An ideal place for Families or groups , friendly and helpful locals, perfect for just relaxing or exploring the area.
The best part was the Villa and location, the worst part was leaving.
