    Quettehou is a lovely area. On arrival to get to the cottage you drive through a lovely archway and has a great garden. It isn't obvious which is the cottage, but it's the middle one. The cottage is OK, but not to any standard I have ever stayed in whilst in the UK. In reality, the cottage is tired and needs quite a bit of work, but that may just be atypical of France. The kitchen is very dated but functional. There is a microwave and a small worktop oven, which just about does what it can. The crockery and cooking utensils are old and tired but usable. A new frying pan doesn't cost much. The filter on the fan above the oven needs cleaning and the steel cleaner left in the sink was rusty. In the utility, there is an old style washing machine (no instructions, but we worked it out) and a small fridge freezer (and I mean small). The downstairs bathroom was ok, though again tired. The shower head is in desperate need of replacing, the light above the sink had wires showing. There were 2 bars of used soap in a dish. Surely new soap for occupants would have been a simple thing.? Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms and a toilet room. I say toilet room as it's big enough to be a bedroom but has a toilet and a sink and loads of spare space. The bedrooms are big enough, but my oh my, the mattresses in both rooms are so hard. I don't think we got much sleep all week. There is free WiFi, though if you have a problem, just reset it by unplugging the extender and after a few mins putting it back in. This only happened the once and doing that fixed the issue. Overall, the cottage is ok if you are not going to spend much time there, i.e. sleep (well if you like rock hard mattresses that is). The minimum charge for cleaning is 50 Euros. In addition, if you want bedding, take your own. I'm not sure the last time this bedding was replaced, but again it needs replacing. It was clean. There is a BBQ and some garden furniture. Again, it could do with replacing. The umbrella's cloth is worn, the table and chairs (plastic is functional) are not even the same colour. We expected to pay under 100 Euros for the cleaning, bedding for 3 and the tourist tax. It was over and more than we thought it would be. French is his only language. He will show you the meter readings on day one too, on the last day he'll take them again and charge you. For a week our it wasn't bad. The differences from France to the UK are that the cleaning, bedding and utility charges are all included. These add a lot more to your stay (roughly £100). This seems common in France though. Plus, don't expect the standard you are used to in the UK. I'm sure all the rules our cottages adhere to are valid there too (surely come under EU rules?) but don't expect them to be of the same standard. For local shops there is Quettehou (about a mile away) and a medium sized Carrefour (en route to St Vaast La Hougue) that also has a petrol station (about 2 miles from cottage). The tide goes out quite some distance and is amazing to see. You can walk out some way and still be knee deep in the water. The beach is rocky nearby but there are some much sandier beaches a few miles up or down the coast. They are very clean though.
