My three sisters and I had a lovely stay at La Maison du Morinant. Barton was an ideal host and answered every question we had and gave us excellent recommendations for our stay. The house was clean, comfy and as advertised, we would definitely return.

Comfortable and well equiped. A quiet location but easily accessible to shops, market and restaurants of Bois Plage and St Martin, and the beaches; all by bike. Very helpful host and local rep. Certainly merits a return visit!
