It's a small but lovely studio within walking distance of all of the major sites in Caen, and it has great views of the city. The only issue is that parking is not quite as advertised: there is no dedicated parking spot or lot, so instead you have to find on-street parking. We only discovered as we checked out that there was a map of free parking spots, so we ended up paying for parking a few times. It wasn't expensive, but it was inconvenient. The owner is lovely and very helpful. We would stay there again, particularly since we now know more about the parking situation.
The location of this studio could not be better: right in the center of town, in the middle of the main shopping area, and very close to the château and university.
The owner was extremely helpful at every turn; she took the time to show me the apartment when I first arrived, and how everything worked. If I ever had a question, she always responded to my calls or messages promptly. She was always ready to propose ideas for activities, good food, and interesting sites to see. I had two small children with me at one point, and the owner went out of her way to come by with toys and books!
The studio is fully equipped and does not lack anything in terms of modern amenities. Everything is new and functions very well, and everything was clean. A nice touch are brochures and books that feature highlights of Caen and the Normandy region.
I appreciated the owner's friendliness and willingness to help, and thank her for eliminating some of the stress that inevitably comes with living abroad.
Nice little appartment, fully functionnal and totally renovated and CLEAN. All we needed was there, including butter, home-made jams and spices for cooking! We did appreciate the washer as well. The balcony was also wonderfull. We were hesitant at first to rent this place as it advertised a futon would be our bed for a week. Finally, this was the best 6 night sleep out of our total 15 days holiday, sooo comfortable, no sore backs and a very restfull sleep. The appartment is located on the 5th floor, but has a functional elevator which was appreciated by my husband walking with crutches and with our heavy luggage. Location is great, walking distance to everything. Our hostess was the best! She went over and beyond to provide important travel information, visiting sites and local events that would make our stay even more memorable!
