Fab place, just needs some TLC.

Spent a week here at the beginning of October 2008. The property is huge with the 6 bedrooms and massive lounge, as described. There were only 6 of us staying here, so we had tonnes of space which was great. However a few things really let the property down in my opinion.
The place really badly needed a good clean. It is obviously an old, rustic farmhouse, but the cobwebs, dirt under the sofas, kitchen shelves/drawers/cupboards really were unpleasant. It did feel that it wasn't that well maintained as many lightbulbs needed to be replaced, the tap was dripping/flowing in the downstair loo, lots of china was chipped, kitchen utensils were broken (chuck them out!!!) and some of the electrics were very french, but a little scary!
Our basic conclusion was that the property has so much potential, but badly needs some money spent on it. Whilst none of the above spoilt our week, it just would have made it a nicer experience.
As for Sorrus, it was a certainly a sleepy village, with no boulangerie even, but there were plenty of other villages/towns very close by.
As a final note, we did see this property in a Le Touquet estate agents!! Just a warning if you're booking for next year!!

If customers have any issues during their stay we have an agent on hand to deal with any queries or problems. If we are not advised we cannot respond.
The house is not for sale.
All the issues that have been raised have been dealt with. A new kitchen has been fitted, all crockery and utensils have been replaced. Tap is no longer dripping. The house has been thoroughly cleaned and the relevant people have been spoken to. The owner was away a lot last year and did not get the opportunity to keep an eye on things. This year will not be the same he will be on hand throughout the year to maintain the house.
The electrics are not scary just strange. The main house is a barn conversion and for example in the upstairs rooms the light switch operates a wall socket for a plug in lamp. If the lamp is switched off at the lamp the light switch will not work.
We assure you that you will have a very lovely holiday in our french house. We have just finished our fourth season and have many repeat guests and have had lots of positive feedback.
PLEASE LEAVE FEEDBACK AFTER YOUR STAY.
