Fab gite, stunning area, pool disappointing

  • 3 of 5
We did have a lovely time although we were disappointed that the so called 'heated swimming pool' was merely an above ground splash pool that was cold, mucky and murky, we would not have used it as it was. Similarly the heated hot tub was full of leaves, and although we could have cleaned it out, we didnt want to go to the effort, it also takes five hours to heat up and we thought it too much like hard work!! The house is characterful and clean and spacious, and the on site family owners are very friendly and helpful. The area is stunning and there is so many mediaeval towns to sit and while away the hours with a bottle of vino. You do REALLY NEED a car here, and when it says car not necessary I would strongly dispute this!! We visited Lac Mondely for a refreshing swim and also the spa at Ax Les Thermes was well worth the drive and the cost, well worth it. We really did want a swimming pool and were very disappointed at what was on offer, for this reason we would not go to this gite again, however, overall we had a lovely time..

Owner's Response: The guests visited me in Autumn, it's difficult to keep falling leaves out of the pool. Its also hard to keep the pool warm at this time of year as the temperature is often cool at night.I understand that I need to make it clear on the listing that the pool is seasonal and condition dependant . I will also add the dimensions of the pool to avoid disappointment. The hot tub is wood burning there for takes a while to heat up. I am always happy to take the leaves out and clean it for people as I want people to enjoy their stay.
