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.
The accomodation was fabulous, spacious and extremely well equipped. The hosts, who live on site, were very accomodating and made us feel at home as soon as we arrived. Everywhere was clean, the pool warm and extremely quiet. If a rural, peaceful location is what you are looking for, it comes highly recommended. Please note however, that the cleaning of the property when you leave is not included; the owners charge an excessive 100 Euro’s unless you choose to clean it yourself. We chose to clean it, which was fine as all equipment was available, but with this and being asked to strip all beds before leaving, we did feel that our holiday wasn’t quite what we thought we had bought.
