Excellente location vivement recommandée

  • 5 of 5
Rien à redire sur cette location qui est tout simplement géniale ! La location est spacieuse, bien équipée, très propre et la vue de la terrasse sur la vallée est superbe ! En plus la propriétaire est très accueillante et toujours disponible. Je la recommande vivement aux personnes amoureux de la nature.

The perfect house for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5
We had the most wonderful week at Les Mazels. It was everything we could have hoped for the perfect family holiday and more. The setting is magical. We really enjoyed our meals on the terrace looking out onto the rolling hills- the children and dog were in heaven with all the outdoor space. The owners have done an amazing job in creating a house that is full of charm (so it feels very homely) whilst also having all the modern conveniences that made our stay so easy. We enjoyed visiting the local area- river swimming, horse riding, busy markets, great restaurants..
I am very saddened to see the review from the people who stayed after us. We didn't see one millipede during our stay and I can't believe that in the few hours after we left there was an 'infestation'. The house was beautifully presented with very few insects (far less than you would expect for such a rural setting). In fact, the house that we staying in the week after (in the Alpes Maritimes) had so many spiders and flies that I remember commenting to my husband how lovely and insect free Les Mazels was. We are already looking forward to our stay at Les Mazels next year.

Spinnenasseln im Haus

  • 1 of 5
Spinnenasseln stellten sich als nächtliche Besucher heraus. Leider kommen die Tiere erst tief in der Nacht zum vorschein, wenn man tief schläft. Meine Frau liest gern lange und sah eins der Tierchen die bis 15 cm lang werden können. Das Haus ist voll davon. In der zweiten Nacht krabbelte eins bei uns im Bett herum. Das führte bei uns zum Urlaubsabbruch nach dem 2. Tag. Die Vermieterin versprach uns das Geld zurück wir sollten ihr die Kontodaten zusenden, dies geschieh nicht, keine Reaktion seitens der Vermieterin erfolgte nach Abreise. Selbst die Kaution behielt sie ein. Deshalb nur ein Stern und absolut nicht zu empfehlen!!!!!

Spinnenasseln sorgten für Urlaubsabbruch...

  • 1 of 5
Leider sorgten Spinnenasseln für den Urlaubsabbruch, diese Tiere können bis 10 cm groß werden und kommen nur nachts zum Vorschein da sie sehr scheu sind. Meiner Frau ist im Schlaf eins über den Rücken gelaufen das was schrecklich. Leider behauptet die Vermieterin das es keine Spinnenasseln gibt !!! Selbst Fotos die wir ihr gezeigt haben konnten sie nicht überzeugen. Somit wird dieses Haus wohl nicht von den nächtlichen Besuchern bereinigt werden. Unser Urlaub war nach der 2. Nacht zu Ende, eine weitere Nacht wäre für uns nicht in Frage gekommen. Geld gab es auch nicht zurück!!! Obwohl es am Abreisetag zugesagt wurde. Im Nachhinein wollte die Vermieterin nichts mehr davon wissen auch nicht von den Tierchen. Schade den das Haus ist ansonsten sehr schön, aber auch voller Spinnenasseln!!!!!!!!

Owner's Response: I was shocked and perplexed when M.Michel and his family suddenly announced they were leaving after only 2 nights because they said the house was infested with millipedes.
After their departure I inspected the house thoroughly but could find nothing to do with millipedes, not even lots of dead ones on the floor, which I had anticipated. I spent a night in the house myself, but still saw nothing.
I then contacted the family who had stayed the previous week, leaving the morning that M.Michel arrived, they said they had not seen any millipedes and that they had even remarked what an insect free house it was. They had loved their stay here.
The next Saturday another family came for the week. I told them about the situation and asked them to tell me immediately if they had a problem. By the end of the week they said they had seen a few millipedes during the week but never many and they were never a problem. For them this was perfectly normal. They adored their holiday and the house and want to come back next year.
M.Michel said he had photographs of this infestation, but so far all he has sent me is a photograph of one dead millipede on the floor.
I am sorry that M.Michel did not enjoy his stay, but I find it very difficult to understand how there was such a large insect problem during their two nights here, when there has not been one before or since.
We are in the French countryside, it is quite a normal occurence to have an insect or two in the house
I have been renting the gite for four years now and this is the first complaint I have had.
