Bastien and Philippe couldn't have been more welcoming. As an unexpectedly solo traveller for two days, my plans having changed at the last minute, I arrived with hardly any notice but they were unphased. I was prepared to spend a lot of time exploring the city alone, but an invitation to dinner with their friends was too hard to turn down- a charming evening with lovely group of people.
Their apartment is as advertised with plenty of character in a lively part of town, very close to the centre. The tram to the beach leaves from just outside the flat.
Something to be aware of is that the mezzanine bedroom is connected to the living room and at more of a distance to the kitchen, but they were both considerately quiet when coming and going so this never felt problematic.
Thank you both for a lovely two days!
