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 all had a fantastic week at La Baudiere. Stunning property, excellent facilities, superb hosts (before and during the stay) and wonderful surrounding area. Never been to such a well equipped property and what was truly great was knowing what would be there before we arrived. We have recommended La Baudiere to our friends and family. We enjoyed visiting Samur for the tank museum and shops, Richelieu just to wander, visit the market and have an excellent meal at Auberge Le Cardinal as well just strolling (or jogging) locally. A great week!
