  • Dog friendly. So well maintained. Beautiful restaurants and cafes everywhere. A delight
  • One of the most beautiful, happy places I have ever been. Historic buildings & one of the oldest ports on the Atlantic. Grab some gelato & sit on the dock just enjoying the French scenery, even had a ferris wheel when I was there in the summer!
  • Lots to see and do
  • Excellent chill time for our anniversary 2015.
  • très beau
