Not the best
To start with a positive Fabienne and Ronald are welcoming hosts and will provide good local information on restaurants etc. But I'm afraid that's where the good points stop as regarding the gite itself.
The surrounding area is wonderful and well worth visiting if you are interested in nature and wildlife but I would recommend you look at other properties also.
So I booked this on looking at the photos which seem to convey it was spacious and had very good reviews, But be aware it is very small inside and the mezzanine bedroom is really claustrophobic, a very low ceiling and steep stairs that is not pleasant at all to sleep in. No air con either.
If that was the only negative it would be manageable but I'm afraid there's more.
There are 4 gites and ours was at the back with a ditch in front of the balcony. It is advertised as up to 4 people but I'm glad there were only 2 of us. The balcony had a cheap plastic table, 3 chairs, and 1 sun lounger, (no cushions provided) For 4 People?
Inside the gite apart from the TV it seems everything has been done on the cheap. A cheap kettle with cord attached that just boils away? Well there is one here. Like to hang some clothes in a wardrobe? Sorry no wardrobe here but there is some space in the bathroom above the cleaning equipment. No thanks.
Yes a BBQ was available for use and it looked as though it would ideal as we like outdoor eating. Another problem, apart from no charcoal provided there is no outside table to sit at! Do we just cook outside and take back to our small room? No idea thus never used. Would the people from other Gites on the loungers outside be happy when we started a BBQ?. Of course not.
Finally be aware that If you are unable to clean the property just before leaving as was our case in that we had to leave at 7.00 am, and there is a ban on any noise at this time, which I fully understand, you will loose a substantial part of your deposit. I told Fabienne that it was no problem to brush and always leave rental properties as we find. But that's not good enough. It must be left sanitized! (whatever that means) we were told. We were shown some small print in a contract but as our French is only average we didn't understand and was impossible to do anyway. So read the small print.
Sorry to be negative but we have stayed in far superior properties at similar cost throughout Europe over many years.
What a find!
Having holidayed extensively in France for many years this is now one of our favourite locations. I think we had avoided the area because it was so flat but what a mistake this was....there is so much to enjoy here.
Accommodation was perfect for the two of us with sleeping on mezanine floor an added attraction of the overall gite. We were constantly entertained by the various moods of the pond and even got up to see the spectacular sun rises! Our hosts Fabienne & Ronald were first class providing us with relevant information saving time which is so precious during our holiday. On their recommendation we had several fantastic eating experiences and purchased fish fresh off the boat, indeed the fisherman had a problem keeping it from flipping off the weighing scales!
We also rented their bicycles which certainly clocked up the kilometres! We took the boat trip from the port to le petit Rhone which again was great value. The immediate area round the gite is very beautiful where we were able to just walk out on various tracks away from traffic etc, we also had the option of walking into town or indeed to the beach. There is just so much to do here, one is killed for choice! I cannot recommend this gite strongly enough, it is an absolute gem of a find!
Die Ferienwohung entsprach der Beschreibung; alles war sauber und funktionierte. Gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis. Die Gastgeber waren sehr nett und hilfsbereit; wir hatten uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
Klein, aber fein
Wer Südfrankreich anders erleben will, ist in Camargue genau richtig. Mitten in der Natur steht das Ferienhaus MAS LOU FARO mit den sehr sympathischen Gastgebern Fabienne und Ronald, die deutsch sprechen, was in Frankreich nicht so oft vorkommt :) Das war für uns eine große Erleichterung.Sie geben ihren Gästen viele gute Tipps für Ausflüge, Einkäufe und wo man gut essen gehen kann.Die Wohnung ist einfach aber sehr gemütlich eingerichtet und hat alles was man so im Urlaub braucht. Von der Terrasse kann man die Natur beobachten und entspannen. Wir fühlten uns dort sehr wohl und unser Hund war dort auch gut aufgehoben, da die Terrasse umzäunt ist. Die Lage von der Ferienwohnung ist ein guter Startpunkt für einen aktiven Urlaub. Wir können diese Unterkunft auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen.
Vielen lieben Dank an den tollen Gastgeber.
Irene, Andreas und Rufus
Tolle Gastgeber, super Lage, prima Wohnung
Schon vor Ankunft total netter Kontakt mit Fabienne und Ronald. Dies hat sich bei der Begrüßung bestätigt. Schöne Wohnung mit Terrasse am Etang. Anlage ist ruhig und gepflegt. Die Lage ist perfekt, um Ausflüge zu unternehmen aber auch, um den Ort oder Strand zu besuchen. Die Tipps von Fabienne und Ronald waren Gold wert.
Wir haben extrem viel gesehen - aber noch lange nicht alles. Vielleicht kommen wir wieder..
Accueil très chaleureux des propriétaires Ronald et Fabienne qui dès notre arrivée nous ont prodigués de précieux conseils pour trouver les meilleures activités (visite, balade restau)...
La location est propre et très bien entretenue. Le jardin est clôturé ce qui a été rassurant pour nos deux chiens. L'endroit est calme et le cadre permet de belles balades ainsi que l'observation de la faune environnante.
