About Owner / Manager

Hi. My brother and I own the farmhouse spend a lot of time over there enjoying the area and exploring. My brother and his family moved over to live in and renovate the farmhouse over a 3 year period. He is a builder and put a lot of care and attention into restoring the house while maintaining it's original features. We have all spent many happy years in the area and hope you also enjoy if you book!

2 families, 7 people all up and plenty of room.

We had a week here and loved it.

I would highly recommend.

We had a great time at the farmhouse.

House much bigger than we expected - particularly the bedrooms - and 3 bathrooms is a huge advantage when you're trying to get a big family ready and out for the day! After dinner we'd end up spending hours playing table tennis which was great fun!

A éviter

  • 1 of 5

L'état général de propreté de la maison à notre arrivée était lamentable : saleté et poussière en particulier dans la cuisine et le salon, placards de cuisine remplis par de la nourriture périmée, mouches collées à la fenêtre de la chambre des enfants, plan de travail de la cuisine sale, canapé du salon moisi, placard avec les effets personnels des propriétaires, frigo avec de nombreuses traces de moisissures, table de ping pong sale, toute la vaisselle sale à nettoyer, 20 bouteilles en verre et un sac de poubelle laissés dans la buanderie ....

Les propriétaires sont de bonne foi (ils sont anglais et laisse l'entretien à une société) ... ou pas. Ils ont proposé un dédommagement que je n'ai jamais reçu.

Par ailleurs, la maison est très grande et pourrai être très bien si elle était entretenue. Elle n'est pas habitée pendant plusieurs mois de l'année et la société de nettoyage ne fait pas de "GRAND"nettoyage.

Le jardin est grand et calme. Il y a beaucoup de jeux pour les enfants et une table de ping pong. L'environnement est joli. Le barbecue était neuf à notre arrivée.

Bref cette location pourrait être très bien si c'était propre et adapté à la location saisonnière (grand ménage, rangement des effets personnels, vaisselle propre, contrat à faire avant-centre la location ...).

Owner's Response: Nous vous remercions pour vos commentaires et nous prenons en compte vos remarques. J’aimerais cependant ajouter un peu de contexte pour une complète transparence des faits. Monsieur X s’est introduit illégalement dans la propriété une semaine avant la date de sa location (qui était la première de la saison) pour ‘inspecter’ la maison. Nous n’avons pas donné suite à cet acte, bien que nous l’ayons trouvé totalement inapproprié. La maison avait été inoccupée pendant plusieurs mois et n’avait pas encore été nettoyée à fond par le professionnel que nous engageons régulièrement, c’est pour cela qu’elle n’était pas impeccable. Les propos de Monsieur x ne sont pas le reflet de la réalité et je tiens à rassurer toute personne qui souhaiterait louer notre propriété ; nous avons eu d’autres hôtes depuis qui nous ont toujours confirmé avoir passé un excellent séjour sans aucun problème avec la propreté de la maison. Afin d’assurer à nos hôtes la meilleure prestation possible, nous inspectons dorénavant nous-mêmes la maison avant toute location.
