Lovely, isolated property

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely relaxing weekend here and it was excellent. The combination of the isolation, the facilities of the fire, swimming pool and steam shower made it a revitalising experience. We would definitely return and stay again.

Could have been so much better

  • 2 of 5

The property has a beautiful situation but is let down by lack of maintenance by the owner. From the start the gate to get into the property has dropped on it's hinges which makes it very difficult to open and has obviously been like this for a long time judging by the deep scuff marks in the concrete. The lodge itself is nice but when we arrived half the light bulbs were not working and the pool outside was green/brown not clean. There is no door at all to the bathroom or curtains on the window making lack of privacy complete. We were charged a cleaning fee and to be honest the property did not feel very clean when we got there and the barbecue looked like it had never been cleaned - too dirty to use.

We have contacted the owner several times saying that we were unhappy, in the end they offered partial refund but we still have not received it after 2 weeks.

Un excellent Séjour

  • 4 of 5

Un très bon séjour dépaysant en famille avec notre petit bébé. Nous recommandons ce lieu à l'abri des regards au milieu des arbres.

Merci à vous.

Arrivé sur les lieus et passé un portail à fleur de route en plein virage ( à ouvrir et fermé chaque fois: tres dangereux) la première impression rentré dans le lodge est la forte odeur de cendre et de suie vu, cela doit faire longtemps que la cheminée n'a pas été nettoyé, vus les toiles d'araignées.

Pour le reste, les fenêtres n'ont plus vus un chiffon depuis longtemps et les poignées sont rouillés et la fermeture à été bricolé mais ferme mal. Trace de moisi au fond des lavabos, couverture imitation de peaux de bête jamais lavé on a réservé pour 6 nuits on c'est enfui au bout de 4 on se faisait dévorer par les puces ou autres dans le lit. piscine non chauffé et robot non nettoyé donc il rejette plus qu'il ne garde de dechet ce qui laisse une fine couche en surface sur la piscine. En dehors du contour de la piscine c'est un champ de ronce. À éviter absolument.

Très bon séjour, reposant.

  • 5 of 5

C'était un très bon weekend, très reposant.

Nous n'avons pas croisé les propriétaires, mais la remise des clefs et le départ étaient très simple.

Le lodge est vraiment très beau, grande cuisine bien équipée, grand séjour etc.

La salle de bain est vraiment super (surtout quand le temps n'est pas vraiment au rendez-vous, il reste l'option baignoire), seul petit point négatif, il n'y a pas de porte à salle de bain / wc.

Sinon, tout est parfait.

Ce lodge est tout simplement magique! C'est l'endroit le plus romantique où je suis allée! Cette immense cheminée, ce canapé cosy, ce lit si confortable (nous y avons dormi comme des bébés!) et cette salle de bain incroyable, le tout perdu au milieu de la forêt... bref, c'était parfait!

Prévoyez juste des vêtements chauds si vous y allez en hiver car malgré la taille de la cheminée et les radiateurs, la pièce, immense, reste difficile à chauffer et le sol est froid.

Les propriétaires que nous n'avons pas vus, sont restés malgré tout très disponibles par téléphone, et charmants.

Nous reviendrons sans hésitation. C'est un lieu à garder secret ;-)
