A lovely holiday spoiled

4 of 5
We have the following comments to make 1. We had the electricity fail,. It was necessary for us to contact Corinne, She confirmed that the "trip" had worked and reset it. We had no further problem with it. 2. We assume that should we have had a problem with plumbing then we would have required to contact Corinne. No information was supplied regarding this. 3 NO information was supplied as to how to dispose of our rubbish. 4, We were concerned aboiut the unpleasant smelling water which ran down the lane- outside the entrance gate to the property. 5 We noticed that the towels nor bed linen was changed whilst we were there. At the end of the first week the beds were used by a different family. 6. Our enjoyable holiday was spoiled when ,- the night before we left - we were informed that we ha broken the alarm system on the swimming pool.' When we arrived we were not given any information regarding the pool. At no time during our stay did the alarm sound. The children were 5 years, 3 years and 10 months old. At no time were they allowed in the pool on their own. One of the adults did notice that the pipe from the pool to the alarm was disconnected. The "poolman" said it had been broken by us. We had no means of disagreeing with him as we had never received any information as to how it worked.. Corinne produce , on her phone, .the cost of a replacement. She contacted the owners- we spoke to them and agreed that as we could not prove it otherwise we would pay for a replacement from our "damage account". We asked for the old alarm so that we could have it repaired and give it to a friend who was having a pool added to their property. This was refused. We were informed that it was essential for the old one to be given to the Assurance Company in order for them to replace it. We do not agree that we should pay for the replacement as well as the Asssurance Company. We would appreciate confirmation that the full 500 euros already paid will be refunded. Please pay this into the account from which it has already been taken. I would appreciate confirmation that this has been paid - email me please. We and our family enjoyed the holiday and house and pool. Maurice & Mavis Bellingham.

How you imagine France to be.

5 of 5
The photographs don't do this house justice, it is simply stunning. We were told the building dates from 1590 and it certainly makes you feel as though you are staying in a traditional French Chateau. It feels grand and historical yet has all the modern conveniences you could need. The house, grounds, pool and tennis court are very well maintained. The kitchen is very well equipt. Pascal the owner has made this place wonderful. He was very welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful in the booking, check in and out. He is super quick at responding to any emails and queries. The recommendation of a chef to come and make dinner is well worth taking up too. Great value (far less than a similar meal out) and 4 delicious courses plus canapes. The only ways this place could possibly be improved would be to have a better internet connection as it was intermittent. It would also be lovely to have curtains at all the bedroom windows in addition to the shutters that are already there. However that is being picky. This was a fabulous holiday rental and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again if the opportunity arose in the future.
