“IT was wonderful , location is on walking distance of all sight see things. All basic needs near to the house and it was a quiet street. Nice places to visit out of Le Havre. We are family with 2 children and we loved it. Yves is really committed of giving you a great time in their home. We felt welcome and it feels like a real family home. ”
Yves's reviewsAs a host (5)
“We - myself and my three children (23, 18 and 11 yrs) - stayed for one week at Yves' flat in August 2018 and it was a wonderful experience. Communication was perfect and they helped us make it possible with their flexibility. The flat is spacious, just wonderful and very good located. Within 1 hour by car you can reach so many beautiful and interesting places and Yves provided us with a very helpful "homebook" which included detailed instructions for the apartment as well as useful recommendations for visits around Le Havre. I strongly recommend it!”
“Yves went to great lengths to research sailing possibilities for our daughter in advance of our visit, and all communication was quick and to the point. We had a great time in Le Havre in July and Yves, Laurence and their daughters took great care of our apartment. They left a lot of local information for us in their unusually large flat. Highly recommended. Bill”
“Nos sentimos muy afortunados de haber podido pasar 15 días en el piso de Ives y familia. Con la grata sorpresa al llegar a la casa, de encontrarnos con unos obsequios de productos locales. Todo ha sido perfecto en este viaje: su historia, sus pueblos, el paisaje, la gastronomía, la amabilidad de la gente, la belleza de sus playas y acantilados... La casa, en el centro de la ciudad, está muy bien situada para visitar Le Havre ( con sus arquitectura, sus museos) y sus alrededores: Honfleur, Dauville, Caen, Rouen, Etretat y acantilados, Fecamp, monasterios, abadías.... La casa está perfectamente equipada, es bonita, limpia, acogedora, luminosa y cómoda. La familia, encantadora, ha sido muy acogedora. Nos ha facilitado todo tipo de información y se ha preocupado siempre de que nuestra estancia fuera agradable. La comunicación ha sido constante y fluida a lo largo de todo el intercambio. Nos hemos sentido como si estuviésemos en nuestra propia casa. Muchas gracias Ives y familia. Os agradecemos mucho vuestra amabilidad y la fácil comunicación con vosotros. "Consideramos un intercambio altamente recomendable”.”””
“We enjoyed our summer vacation in Le Havre. The exchange with Ives and his family was perfect. Just as we arrived to their centric apartment we found a dossier where all the information regarding the house as well as the surroundings could be found. They even prepared some guides for our tours that were very useful. Le Havre and all the Normandy area offer many cultural possibilities, both historical and gastronomical. Recommended to everybody. I must confess that they were very charming and trustful.”
