Très bonnes vacances !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons réservé la villa pour 3 semaines et nous avons passés de très bonnes vacances.

Très bon accueil à notre arrivée (le dimanche) avec toutes les explications nécessaires sur le fonctionnement des appareils. Nous avons eu au début de notre séjour un souci avec un volet roulant qui a tout de suite été pris en charge. La maison est spacieuse et était propre à notre arrivée ; les draps, les tapis de bain et les torchons vaisselle sont fournis. La cuisine et la salle de bain sont bien équipées et disposent de nombreux rangements. Les lits sont confortables (nous avons utilisé le canapé convertible du salon) et les lits 2p sont grands (160 x 200). Toutes les pièces sont agréables à vivre. Il y a deux climatiseurs que nous n'avons pas utilisés car la maison est bien isolée : les nuits permettaient de rafraichir les pièces et les volets peuvent tous être bloqués en position semi-fermée. La terrasse extérieure est grande et très ensoleillé : une banne est disponible et se replie automatiquement quand il y a trop de vent (pas de risque de casse ou de chute). Le grand terrain d'herbe a permis à notre fils de bien s'amuser. Petit plus : la pelouse a été tondue pendant notre séjour.

Nous avons adoré le petit salon en terrasse à l'étage avec une vue superbe sur le lac.

Nous allions à la plage à pied en 10 minutes (notre fils a 3 ans, nous n'avons pas fait des records de vitesse). Le chemin est sécurisé pour les enfants.

Si on veut chipoter, on peut souligner que de par la construction de la maison, les meubles de cuisine sont sur une marche, donc hauts et qu'il vaut mieux être grand ! Comme ce n'est pas notre cas, nous avons (beaucoup) utilisé le marchepied, que nous déplacions souvent car nous étions vite trop petits pour atteindre toutes les étagères des placards. La villa surplombe un très grand camping mais les animations en soirée se terminent au plus tard à 22h30 le soir.

La localisation à Marigny nous a permis de nous balader dans la région sans faire trop de route. Et comme le soleil a été de la partie, nous avons largement pu profiter de la région.

Bref, nous avons vraiment apprécié notre séjour et nous ne regrettons pas notre réservation !

The price/quality ratio was not OK

  • 2 of 5

On arrival we find a smudgy house, (windows, spiders, web, kitchen appliances, dishes with foodrests, the greasy hood, in all the corners of the house and a lot of flies!!) a strange and very high kitchen (I am 190 cm). The furniture was very dated, the bunk beds were very small as well as the “second” bathroom. (no photo´s of course on the website) Plumbing and Toiletflush were not good. The air-conditioning didn´t function that good. The wash dryer was out of order as well as the vacuum cleaner. Internet was not unlimited! (nice with 4 kids) as shown on the website. Also the solarscreens automatically deactivated during daytime, very annoying. The house is indeed 250 meters from the lake, but you have to walk or ride 900 meters exact to the lake over a pretty bumpy stoned road to get to lakesite (camping Domain), so watch out with buggies. The house is NOT modern, it is two houses combined in a very strange way. It really needs to get cleaned first and updated if the price meets its promised quality. I am also stunned that there were only 2 reviews of the house? The spectacular scenery of the lake and the bath towels were a plus. A view tips: other kitchen chairs, these are so heavy (for kids), the patio front needs a new paintjob (as on the photo), put photo´s of TV room, bunk beds and second toilet/bathroom so people really see how everything looks, because than we wouldn´t have rented the house to be honest. The price/quality ratio was not OK. We had a other villa a week previous at Lake Clairvaux which was really 5+ stars but for the same price, so I am sorry I cannot recommend this property especially for this price.

Owner's Response: It was very surprising to see your comments about our home, especially since at your departure, you seemed satisfied with your stay and did not mention any of the things cited in your review! We would like to provide some facts which we hope will put your experience into perspective for our future clients. It was agreed beforehand that you would arrive earlier than the official arrival time in order to leave your luggage and return later. However, as you unexpectedly decided to take possession of the house immediately, the cleaning could not be completed, as explained to you by our representative (although the dishes were checked and confirmed to be clean). Your response was « we are on holidays, so it doesn’t matter »! The vacuum cleaner was functioning prior to your stay, but upon your departure, it was observed that there was dirt and hair blocking the pipe and filter, thus explaining why it was subsequently not working correctly. The brand new air conditioning was installed at the same time as the new sunroom on the 2 floor early this year. We believe these new additions add a lot of value to the house and constantly strive to improve what we offer to our clients. We have a large awning that opens out over the patio. A security mechanism automatically closes it when there is too much wind. We believe the security of our clients far outweighs the inconvenience of having to push a button to open it up again. The wifi is unlimited and functions with a separate code per user. You were provided with 4 different codes that were valid for 15 days each (your stay was for 1 week).We acknowledge the kitchen chairs are a bit on the heavy side, but this is because they are made from high quality materials. The house is not two houses as stated in your review, but one house with 2 floors & a glass sunroom containing a spiral staircase leading upstairs. The original foundations of the house date back to the '50s, but it was completely renovated before putting it up as a rental property and we continue to make improvements on an ongoing basis eg new sunroom and air cond. installed this year. Your reservation was made via the website for the house, where we have photos of each room + 360° virtual visit. The website is aimed to show the house as it really is and we pride ourselves on our transparency. The beds are all of standard size, dimensions are even indicated on the website. Finally, we agree there are a flies in the Jura after all, we are in the countryside
