First of all the good things about this villa. The house was a reasonable size and reasonably well appointed. The first week we stayed, the weather was very hot, so the pool was warm (It is unheated) and the air conditioning kept the house cool throughout. The owner was also friendly and welcoming.

However, there were several problems. Firstly, although the description states that there was a jacuzzi and petanque available, disappointingly neither were. Although there were two bathrooms, the en-suite bath taps were broken, and the shower on this unusable. Worse than that, the bath wasn’t attached to the floor or wall, and fell over during the rental. Luckily no-one was injured, but this could have caused a very serious injury. The stairs and floor are all stone, which is ok. However, since the only shower was upstairs, this inevitably meant that some water was dropped onto the stone stairs, which only had partial handrails, meaning this had to be constantly dried to avoid a risk of falling and injury. For these reasons, this property would be unsuitable for young children and the elderly. The pool was also a salt pool, rather than a chlorine pool, meaning that it was impossible for any of us to stay in for extended periods of time without developing a skin rash. It also meant that it was necessary to wash off in the shower every time after going in the pool.

In addition, it seems as though this was less of a holiday let, and more like staying in someone’s house. There were many personal items left throughout the property, including dirty washing. In addition, there was a resident cat, which we were expected to look after. Although we didn’t mind this, this would be a serious problem for anyone who has an allergy to cats.

The hot water heating was poor. This heated up overnight, with barely enough hot water for the 4 of us. The overnight heating was also faulty, and emitted a ‘beeping’ noise every single night. We informed the owner about this immediately, but nothing was done about it. Unsurprisingly therefore, on the last night of the stay, the heating failed altogether, and we had no hot water then at all, so we were glad not to be staying any longer. Finally, and very disappointingly, the owner retained a significant portion of the damage deposit, despite there being no damage to the property at all. This was a very upsetting end to what was already a below average stay. We will not be returning.

Owner's Response: Bonjour, Effectivement avec l'Angleterre ça c'est mal passé. J'usqu'à ce que je retienne une partie de la caution, pour ménage supplémentaire, tout était parfait. Seulement, la maison à été rendue très sale, des éclaboussures peut-être de vomis sur les murs et les meubles..les sols en pierre blanche étaient noirs de saleté et je vous passe l'état des sanitaires... Je vais m'arrêter à ce succinct descriptif de l'état dans lequel j'ai retrouvé la villa avec 3 agents de menage afin de désinfecter l'habitation après la location. Je loue ma maison à des vacanciers pas une formule hôtel tout inclus. Après on peut être dans la calomnie par colère mais ça reste 1 vacancier sur 6.,,, Merci

Maison magnifique et très bien équipée.

La maison et la piscine sont bien plus jolies que sur les photos.

Accueil chaleureux de la très sympathique Denise – tout était bien expliqué

Un 5 sur 5 sans aucune hésitation – vraiment aucune remarque à faire.

Merci Denise pour nos vacances réussies à 100%.

Amitiés, Axelle & Marc (Anvers - Belgique)

C'est l'adjectif qui peut qualifier le mieux cette location.

Accueil de Denise magnifique, une boisson fraîche et un sourire qui vous prouve que tout va très bien se passer.

Propriétaire très disponible avec de très bons conseils (plages + visites).

Pour ce qui est de la maison, rien à dire si ce n'est que du bien.

Décoration intérieure avec beaucoup de goût, l'ensemble des pièces sont climatisé, belle piscine.

La villa se trouve dans un domaine sécurisé et très calme.

En bref belle propriété au calme et pas loin de la mer.
