NO. Our largest house can accommodate up to 4 people, not more.  Even if you are divided into several lodgings for sleeping, you will certainly want to share moments together around the dining table or the living room. Equipment, dishes, furniture will not allow this. We count on our guests to respect the maximum capacity provided for each accomodation and not to move dishes and furniture from one accomodation to another. In the village and surroundings, you will find lodgings designed to accommodate up to 15 people.

Restaurants to recommend?

YES. Depending on your wishes, we will share our favorite addresses on your arrival or before your stay: restaurants, brasseries, oyster shack, beach bar, brunch, coffee shop and tea rooms ...

NO sorry, because all are located in old fishermen's houses with internal and sometimes external staircases. In the old port district, the alleys are sloping with narrow sidewalks and paved pavement.
However at La Maison Matelot the apartment on the Ground Floor "Le Matelot à carreaux" may be suitable for those who want accommodation without stairs if only  they can climb a step (access to the house) and use the antique bathtub (quite high, with handle)
