Fred's apartment is lovely. It is very neat, clean and comfortable.
Fred and his friend Jean Baptiste welcomed to the apartment and showed me around. They were both very friendly and helpful. Despite my extremely limited French, we were able to communicate. When I told them I needed to get to the Caen airport the next morning, they researched for me which bus I should take and when. They took me down to the street to show me the location of the bus stop.
Fred was easy to work with. He was easy to reach and he was flexible with my arrival time.
I would definitely recommend Fred's apartment. It is within walking distance of the train station and the major sites. The neighbourhood is quiet.
