The description of the property was completely acurate, everything was very clean, and everything you could possibly need was there, ( shower was great) it's just a very old property traditional French Gite in built up surroundings and a needs a bit of an overhaul, but you can se…

Nous avons eu juste un échange téléphonique. Barbara étant absente. Nous avons eu beaucoup de mal à trouvé cette petite maison niché dans une impasse derrière la salle des fêtes du village. Niveau logistique il y a se qu'il faut pour faire le repas, par contre eau chaude 2 douc…

Barbara nous a prévenu la veille d'un problème d'eau chaude qui je cite "s'épuise " rapidement. En fait le cumulus était hors service. Lorsque nous sommes arrivés , Barbara finissait une séance de ménage musclée et la fourniture de draps neufs n’était pas un luxe. Le temps d '…

L'annonce pose problème, car la maison n'est visiblement pas en mesure d'accueillir qui que ce soit. Par exemple (et dans le désordre) : c'est vaisselle OU douche quant à l'eau chaude (douche express et pour une personne seulement, quand on est 4 c'est compliqué !), tous les rob…

Response from Barbara:
The announcement is a problem, because the house is clearly not able to accommodate anyone Clearly the house can - I stay there regularly and so have other guests. For example (and in order): it is dishwasher OR shower as hot water (! Express shower and a person only when one is 4 it's complicated), all taps are changing (super hard was afraid that they remain in the hands). Thank you, although I don't have a problem with the taps. I will check. HS camp radiators (in rooms without heating!), I don't understand this. They are electric heaters and they are just to be turned on!! I have them on when I am there! Lamps without bulbs (or HS), so no light in the master bedroom upstairs. Yes, I am sorry, that was an oversight on my part. The shot jump as soon as you plug the toaster with a single radiator at the same time. Once again, an oversight on my part to leave instructions as to how many items can be left on at the same time. I am endeavouring to get sorted. The house was dirty and cold on arrival, we had to clean and rebuild the dishes. I absolutely do not understand this. I stayed there just a few days and totally cleaned up!! It was spotless when I left!! greasy (so no shower but we did not know it yet!). It smells musty (not to mention huge black spots on a living room wall). The place is locked up so there is bound to be a musty smell. This is a very old cottage. The head-to-head with the ham (very) last in the fridge is a great moment. I have a property manager and obviously the message did not get through to meet and greet, but I take full responsibility. Do not imagine making a fire in the stove, no wood. I need to get chimney swept, so just as well. Upstairs, you come across a work in progress (all baseboards are "to finish asking"). I only charged £20 per night. It's quite a bargain! No, it's not perfect. Finally, no wifi (as advertised), - apologies. I have now changed this on the listing for the time being till I get it sorted. There is wife in the cafe, Chez Odette. n't courtyard succession of wave field maintenance with local annex to the broken door, open to all winds with broken or abandoned objects. Once again, not sure what this is all about. There is an old shed with bits and bobs in it. I can't help what my neighbours do! Once again, it was only £20 a night!!!! Fortunately neighboring troubleshoot but this is not enough. I received outstanding reviews on my house in London. If you had telephoned me (I am the owner after all), I would have arranged a refund right away! Barbara

Barbara a été très présente, elle a pris soin de savoir nous avions bien trouve le chemin et la maison. Sans ces explications la route aurait été dur car il n'y a aucune indication . La maison est dans une impasse, elle est difficile a voir mais le quartier est très calme.
