Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Gaucin - Casa Maria Roman

A Simple Place With Reliable Facilities Ideal For A Budget Holiday

This updated and renovated property known as Casa Maria Roman but retaining its original characteristics of tiled floors and beams is in a quiet street at the upper end of the picturesque mountain village of Gaucin. On 3 floors the ground floor has an entrance lobby with a second lobby with single bed useful for putting a third visitor, leading to stairs to the first floor which has a living dining and kitchen area with a wood burning stove. There is a TV and stereo system. On the top floor is large double bedroom with bathroom leading off which also has the washing machine. There is a terrace with a table and chairs and 2 reclining garden chairs. A great bonus is that only 400 metres away is the very well appointed village swimming pool which offers excellent value between July and August. It is a large grassy and shaded area which is great for sunbathing and relaxing during your visit. The free of charge tennis court is next door to the pool.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • pets considered
  • smoking allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

nicht vermietbar !!!

  • of 5

Die uns vermietete Unterkunft war bei unserer Ankunft in einem absolut unbewohnbaren Zustand!

Alles war verdreckt, nur sehr oberflächlich geputzt, wenn überhaupt. Im Kühlschrank (offensichtlich seit Jahren nicht mehr gesäubert!) war Schimmel (sic!), auf dem Bett lagen zwei alte Schlafsäcke, es gab keinerlei Bettzeug oder Handtücher.

Im derzeitigen Zustand ist die Wohnung nicht vermietbar !!!

Hier ist eine Totalrenovierung angesagt !!!

Nach einer dementsprechenden telefonischen Beschwerde beim Vermieter wurde uns ein anderes Appartement des Vermieters im Ort überlassen, das von der Ausstattung her etc. in Ordnung war. Allerdings mussten einige fleißige einheimische Helfer hier erst noch eine Stunde arbeiten, um die Wohnung herzurichten. Etwa 2,5 Stunden nach Ankunft konnten wir dann einziehen.

Die ursprünglich von uns gemietete Wohnung sollten Sie sofort aus Ihrem Angebot streichen!

Dear Patrick,

I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful time we had at your house in Gaucin. In the end, we did some shorter walks. Once we find the time, we will happily return and spend another holiday at your place. So thank you again very much, everything worked out just fine.

Kind regards

Sebastian&Ananda
