Gorgeous house!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house and the town. It is located in the heart of the medieval town on a small square, and is surrounded by small artisans shops. Karym was most helpful in getting us settled, and very responsive to any questions we had, including the history of the house. As would be expected in a house of this age, there are a lot of stairs to navigate, but the views from the bedrooms and terraces are magical. It was spotlessly clean and well supplied with everything that could be required for a stay, including wine! Would love to come back and stay again......

Retour vers le bon temps

  • 4 of 5

De l'espace, du calme dans cette magnifique maison, des vraies vacances dans une région où l'on est bien.

Quelques détails matériels ont égayé la semaine (plus de four), mais juste envie d'y retourner...

Courage pour la suite des travaux

Owner's Response: Merci beaucoup pour votre appréciation : nous sommes très heureux que vous ayiez aimé notre maison. Concernant le problème de four, je souhaitais simplement apporter cette précision qu'un four d'appoint a été fourni le temps qu'une intervention puisse être faite, laquelle a révélé... qu'un simple bouton, resté enfoncé sur la minuterie, avait déclenché la sécurité du four de notre piano de cuisson 5 feux. Donc désolé pour ce problème, toutefois, je suis heureux qu'un four de substitution ait pu vous être fourni aussi. Par ailleurs, nous nous sommes rendus compte à l'arrivée du locataire suivant qu'un fauteuil provençal avait été fendu très violemment sur le dossier et que la traverse du dossier avait été remise en place sans signalement de manière à ne pas rendre visible le dégât ? Evidemment, cela nous met dans l'embarras, parce que c'est un bel objet qui fait partie de la décoration qualitative des lieux, surtout parce que votre état des lieux de sortie ne l'a pas mentionné, et enfin parce que ce n'est peut-être pas vous qui êtes en cause, mais peut-être le locataire précédent. Toutefois, dans ce cas, n'aurait-il pas été plus simple de le signaler dès votre arrivée dans les lieux si effectivement c'est le locataire précédent qui était en cause ? Bref, je tenais simplement à apporter ces précisions et juste exprimer notre embarras. Bien à vous.
