Lovely village with good restaurants

  • 4 of 5

I have already written a review but it obviously didn’t send!

We had a lovely time in Laroque. The situation of the property was lovely with views towards the mountains. I would give the property three and a half stars. The outside area was pleasant but with a rather dirty and old looking cover roped over the top of it. The kitchen facilities were very good although we had to buy dish washing materials. Also it would be good to have a little washing liquid available for the washing machine. There were 3 dish washing tablets - left over by a previous resident - which we used. We noticed that bits of paint were falling off the lounge walls. We cleaned them up several times.

The toilet facility in the bedroom area was a bit quirky and awkward and the shower room could be smartened up a bit. I was wakened on the Monday of our stay during a thunder storm with water dripping on to the floor above. I got up to investigate and found that the water was coming down from a beam. I put a pan underneath to catch the water and informed Martine.

As indicated previously we really enjoyed our holiday in Laroque and we may return in the future. Martine was very helpful as was her husband. None of the above comments spoiled our stay.

Really nice and Martine and Jacques were great

  • 4 of 5

Laroque is such a beautiful setting and great for visits locally. The house is beautiful and very well equipped.Just a suggestion as we flew and hired a rental car so our baggage was minimal. Prehaps providing guests with beach towels or even options to hire them?? Would recommend this property

Owner's Response: Thanks for your recommendation for the beach towels. We will check with the owner. Next time ask me as I am happy to provide them. Glad you loved the property and location. We welcome you back to any of our rentals! -Beth DAMBERGER

Déjà écrit, il y a des mois sur airbnb

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons déjà, et depuis longtemps écrit nos commentaires positifs sur Airbnb.

Owner's Response: Effectivement, nous vous remercions pour cette commentaire positive: "Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Martine à notre arrivée. La maison était confortable, tout à fait conforme à la description. Le village de Laroque est très beau, typique et on y trouve tout le nécessaire à quelques pas. Le stationnement est un peu difficile mais on y trouve toujours une place à garer. L'appartement est tout près du clocher alors si vous avez le sommeil léger cela peu déranger un peu." We welcome you back soon! Beth Damberger

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a modern equipped vacation home, near the coast, but without the 'mass tourism' of Argeles sur Mer, this is a great choice! Laroque des Alberes is a lovely village to stay: small, quite in daytime but alive in the evening with several nice bars & restaurants.

The location of the property couldn't be better, although you should not be afraid of a little walk since parking near the chateau isn't easy. We had a lovely holiday with our 2 kids (5&7 years old) here, thanks to this great home & their lovely owners. Excellent price for this quality.

Owner's Response: Thanks again for your positive feedback! We are working on securing a private parking spot for future guests, please inquire before booking. Otherwise, everyone seems to agree: this home is charming, comfortable, and perfectly situated! Come again to any of my rentals at LoveYourStay

Cozy and spacious for our group

  • 5 of 5

We loved the little village and yet we were so close to drive to the beach. Place was very pristine when we arrived. Great price.

Owner's Response: The home has been very recently completely renovated. YET the old character elements were preserved, so you get the modern with the quaint French villag feel. Clients also appreciate the grill and terrace at their disposal and the proximity to beach and mountain rivers. Come again soon!
