I needed to find a place to stay for three nights when my grandparents' summer home was broken into in February. Michel and Therese were wonderfully accommodating hosts, even knowing that I was not their "typical guest". They gave me their nicest room, La Deferlante, on the second floor (word to the wise: Be sure to shut the exterior shutters as the street light shines right into your eyes). The room is lovely, well decorated with a large collection of books and various objects. The bed was superb.....some of the best sleeping I have ever had (after closing the shutters!). The bathroom is very clean and they keep extras of everything you might need on hand. I truly felt like a guest in a very special home, not a customer in a hotel. Breakfast was copious and delicious, served in a lovely large kitchen.
Of course I am a bit partial to Veulettes, having spent most of my summers there. It is a lovely little seaside town with plenty of activities in the summer. This was my first time there in winter. Not much is open but the scenery is still lovely with plenty of long walks to be taken. It was a true pleasure to return to such a lovely room every night after cleaning up the mess the "burglars" made (the house was turned upside down but little was taken and most importantly there was very, very little damage). Crime is virtually non-existent in this little village, we were most likely "visited" by some bored teen-agers.....please don't allow my misadventure deter you from visiting this jewel. If ever we have an overflow of people at the house we will definitely put the up at La Maison d'Albatre!
