Lovely stay but read this to protect yourself
We stayed at this property in July 2019 The communication on the HomeAway website was really easy, booking was simple The impression I got when booking was that the property was easy walking distance to St Florent and the beach, which is not the case, you will need a car if you are staying here. The property is within a complex or ~20 apartments, this is number 17, ground floor, overlooks the pool, nice position, quiet, no noise from upstairs. It is decorated well, has all you would need to a 2wks stay, fully stocked kitchen, washer, outside drying. The pool is well maintained by the pool guys who turn up each morning. It is shared with all the apartments but there was never an issue with space around the pool - alot of people are travelling around and not just staying at the pool all day- but should you, then it's quiet and relaxing. The apartment is based 5-8mins walk from a large LeClerc supermarket where you can find everything you needs, also near there is a coffee/cocktail bar, and a pizza restaurant which was always quiet, pizzas were ok. St Florent itself is a 5mins drive away where there are many bars and restaurants, shops and a thriving town where you can hire a boat, watersports or lay on the beach. If you want a good beach be prepared to travel, there are some stunning ones across the island, St Florent is not one of them. A couple of points to note on the apartments, a week before arrival we were informed by Sabine the owner that bedding & towels were extra cost, a hidden costs to us. The owner also takes a substantial deposit against damages in advance. We didn't break anything but still Sabine took an extortionate sum from us as we hadn't cleaned the BBQ - a point I disputed with her and after 3 month and HomeAway intervention got my money back. So beware, this owner is out to make money from you! In summary, the location, apartment and HomeAway are all good - there are other apartments within this complex to rent through well known home rental sites if you don't want to take your chance with Sabine's 'extra' charges.
