It was a lovely and very well presented Gite, however on arrival we were dismayed to find that the key to the courtyard was missing from the key box, and having checked our information sent by yourselves we discovered that we had not been sent any local contact numbers (we subsequently found them when we did eventually gain entry to the Gite, no good to us!!) it took us almost 2 hours to resolve this situation requiring us to contact a friend who lives in France to find the Owners Direct Telephone No and then a phone call to yourselves in America, this caused us a great deal of anxiety as we had no idea if the agents would be open or whether you would be home and we had limited phone signal which we had to travel back into Cenac to receive. We had a car full of shopping which we had done on the way into the Gite and we were seriously considering the possibility that we would need to find a Hotel for the night. After making contact with yourself the situation was finally resolved, and we did gain entry to the Gite, but we feel it was extremely negligent to have left us in this situation, and suggest that for future guests you ensure that a local contact number is included on the information sent direct to the guests renting your Gite so as they do not suffer the same extreme anxiety that we felt in this situation. A couple of other minor issues :– The gate to the garden and pool could not be locked as the padlock (which was already set to the open position) could not be locked. There was a problem with the seal on the oven door, this meant that it could not be shut properly and therefore took a long time to heat up Regards Ron and Val Fazakerley P.S we were told by yourselves that Angela would pay us a visit, she never did

Great location for amazing day trips. Lots of room, lovely pool, etc etc. We had a couple of hiccups at the start regarding hot water and airconditioning not working but these were quickly resolved by the efficient local agent and we had a lovely holiday.
