We did have a very good week in a house which is pretty well equipped but a couple of things need sorting out. Firstly, instructions for parking are given as if from the house, not from the approach, so very confusing on arrival! Secondly, spent ages looking for light switches hidden behind microwave.
The folder of instructions for appliances is just a collection of manuals - not what you want to wade through when you first arrive and need to prepare a meal. It would be very helpful to have one laminated sheet with quick instructions for everything.
Standard of cleaning throughout was quite poor with many cobwebs and dust throughout ground floor. The ‘roll up’ blinds were infuriating! Any other kind of blinds would do.
Upstairs heater was left on in bedroom (we used downstairs). When I tried to turn it off it fell off the wall. Could have been quite dangerous. Managed to re-hang it when it was cool but this needs fixing urgently.
Apart from that we had a good week because a) the sun shone all the time and b) we’d chosen Faye la Vineuse in order to meet up with Liz, who I was teaching with some 30 years ago.
If you are living outside all the time in high summer you may not notice some of the irritations, but in late September we did.
We had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing stay. Hosts Christophe and Claudine couldn’t be more helpful. Ideal for those wanting to get away from big city life. Pool was great and the property was very cosy. Kitchen, although small, is functional and all utensils and Crockery provided. Loved the little touch of providing some welcome essentials such as milk, eggs, Goats Cheese, Wine.
