About the Homestay
Hello to you or rather Bonjour!
I came here on holiday 16 years ago and fell in love with the place and stayed - I guess
I am a permanent tourist! Having studied architecture many years ago before retraining to become a teacher I couldn't help but admire the beautiful 'Belle époque' buildings. The beach here is golden and it is a fantastic place to come on holiday as well as learn French! I can teach you French or English and you will be immersed in the culture and have a good time. I used to be an interior designer and my flat is spacious, light, modern and warm. I love meeting people and teaching. You are welcome to come here and also to meet my french friends - there are lots of activities here! Cabourg is the 'little Brighton' of France - all the Parisians come here where they have a holiday home! Check out Cabourg on the net - you will see that it is not far from Deauville and is 2 hours from Paris.
BTW - an evening meal is possible for 7€.
- Non Smoking
Bedrooms available for booking
About the Area
My flat is located next to the estuary of the Dives. The beach is a 5 minute walk and the marina which is known as Port Guillaume is not far - luxurious boats and an authentic fish market. It is also 5 minutes to everything - shops, cinema, restaurants, market, bars, dancing, concerts. The architecture is beautiful - it culminates at the Grand Hotel - beautiful mansions everywhere! Perfect place for jogging or cycling or of course walking. My favourite place is in the sand dunes on the presque-isle next to the port - you have the sea on one side and the 'toy town' village on the other side - absolutely breath-taking! The train station over the bridge is 15 minutes away by foot -
this will take you to Deauville where you can then get another train to Paris for a day out if you like - only 2 hours away - you will arrive in Gare St.Lazare not too far from the Champs Elysées!

J'ai passé un séjour splendide chez Louise qui est une hôtesse très aimable et sympa. C'est sûr que je reviendrai..♀️
I enjoyed a perfect stay with Louise. She made me feel very welcome, and was great company. Thank you, Louise :-)
Louise made us feel very welcome and we felt quite at home. We would be happy to return or recommend to our friends. Cabourg is a lovely town and we enjoyed our visit.
Wir hatten eine schöne Zeit bei Louise. Sie ist warmherzig und nett. Wir haben das liebevoll zusammengestellte Frühstück sehr genossen. Wir werden wiederkommen!!
