Herrliche Urlaubstage in Le Pouget (Cevennen)

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben die Pfingstferien 2014 in diesem schönen Ferienhaus verbracht. Die Vermieter hatten uns schon im Voraus mit vielen Informationen (Fotos, Unterlagen, kleine Videoclips, etc.) versorgt, und die Beschreibung im Internet ist ja schon sehr ausführlich und genau.

Das Haus ist wirklich gut eingerichtet und ausgestattet, und der terrassenartige Garten ist einfach herrlich. Viele Blumen und Gemüse, dass wir auch ernten durften. Das Haus liegt ruhig in den Bergen an einer kleinen Straße (Sackgasse).

Im Dorf Sumene, das man schnell zu Fuß erreicht, sind kleine Geschäfte und Bäcker, so daß man sich mit dem Notwenigsten versorgen kann. Ein paar Orte weiter gibt es dann mehrere Supermärkte.

Vom Haus aus kann man direkt loswandern und in der näheren Umgebung gibt es zahlreiche Ausflugsmöglichkeiten. Wir waren in zwei Höhlen (Demoiselles, Trabuc), einer Templerstadt (Couvertoirade), der Schlucht Navacelles, einer herrlichen Badestelle an der Vis und auf verschiedenen Märkten in der Umgebung. Der Markt in Ganges ist besonders zu empfehlen!

Zu bemängeln haben wir lediglich, daß das Wohnzimmer ein starkes Raucherzimmer war, und wir es deshalb nicht als Schlafzimmer nutzen konnten (Die anderen Zimmer sind aber rauchfrei!). Außerdem ist in der Beschreibung nicht erwähnt, daß ein Zugang am Haus in ein Hinterhaus führt, wo ein älteres Ehepaar wohnt. Wir sind beim erste Zusammentreffen deshalb etwas erschrocken. Problematisch war auch etwas für unsere Hunde, da die angrenzenden Grundstücke nicht zum Haus gehörten und das Ehepaar sehr genau beobachtete, was unsere Hunde so trieben. (Also mit Hunden nur begrenzt empfehlenswert.)

Dies hat aber unseren Eindruck nicht geschmählert. Wir würden wieder kommen. Leider sind aber die Mietpreise mittlerweile so angestiegen, daß wir es uns wahrscheinlich nicht mehr leisten können.

Owner's Response: Herzlichen Dank für Ihre Bewertung! Das Haus ist im Inserat für Raucher freigegeben ,aber Sie haben völlig recht : Schlafräume werden künftig rauchfrei gestellt! Hierzu wurden umgehend alle Räume neu gestrichen und von Rauchspuren gereinigt. Auf seine Hunde muss man überall aufpassen, wer Hunde mitbringt,muss diese von Nachbargrundstücken fern halten. In der vorderen Hausfront ist eine Tür, sie führt zu einem Durchgang, welchen unsere Nachbarn benutzen,um zu ihrem hinter unserem Gebäude liegenden Haus zu gelangen.Diese Nachbarn sind lediglich von Freitags bis Sonntags da und kommen mit unserem Haus und Gelände lediglich insofern in Berührung, als sie durch eine Extra-Tür an der Vorderfront unseres Gebäudes gehen. Dieser Durchgang berührt keinen unserer Räume,sondern gehört zu der gängigen Bauweise in franz.Dörfern mit hintereinander liegenden Häusern.Unsere Preise wurden nicht erhöht,wir liegen nach wie vor 30% unter dem ortsüblichen Preis für vergleichbare Ferienhäuser
