Wonderful large family house with pool

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful unique house. Great facilities, fantastic town location. Easy reach of Somme war circuit and also champagne region. Comfortable beds, safe covered pool, luxury living for a week or even short break - owners are very helpful and flexible. It helps if you can speak some French in this area. Highly recommended as a great place for a large family party. Plenty of loos and bathrooms. St quentin is a nice small town with shopping, culture, activities and bars within 5-10 mins walking distance of house. Tennis in Park across road too.

Owner's Response: C'est avec grand plaisir que nous avons accueillis M. et Mme... pour leur troisième séjour. Cela a été très chaleureux. La Villa Elysée a été parfaitement respectée. C'était la semaine de la qualification du Pays de Galles en demi-finale de l'Euro et celle de la commémoration de la Bataille de la Somme. Nous nous sommes sentis "en famille" Nous aimons notre ville de Saint Quentin et notre situation géographique favorise la découverte de tout le patrimoine, très riche, de la Picardie.

A charming old house, but not without problems

  • 3 of 5

Our first impression upon arrival was what an amazingly grand property this was. We were met by the owners who were very welcoming, but were surprised to find out that parts of the house were locked and we felt that we'd maybe intruded into someone's home. We had not realised that our electricity charges were additional to the rental and whilst this was probably stated in the contract it was written in French and I had only got the gist of its contents. Although the website states that the owners speak English all e mails from them were in French and there was a language difficulty which made it difficult to resolve problems which arose during our stay, in particular the electricity supply which kept cutting out all week. Whilst this in itself wouldn't have been too frustrating if we could have sorted the problem quickly we were unable to do so for a number of reasons. The owners implied that this was occurring because of something we were doing( but we only had bog standard appliances with us) and we were either out of the house when the interruption to the supply occurred or in bed! The inability on both sides to explain the situation made resolving the problem very difficult. We asked for a key to the basement so that we could reset the trip ourselves after the second power disruption ( much simpler and quicker as the owners tended to be a couple of hours drive away!) This was initially refused on the Monday and only given to us the next day after another disruption and with the help of an interpreter to explain our frustration with the situation. This meant it was easier to deal with this problem, but the supply continued to come and go all week!

We were also surprised upon arrival to discover that a separate wing of the house could have been let at the same time, which would have meant sharing the garden and the outdoor pool. We didn't feel this had been clearly represented on the website and whilst we enjoyed exclusive use I would recommend checking on booking if this is what you will get.

It's also worth noting when considering a booking that there is a hefty damage deposit of 800 euros to hand over on arrival!

Despite these issues we had a really fab holiday. The house has charm, is in a great location with the town a short walk through the park with lots of good bars, restaurants and a man made beach for the summer. Our main intention was to explore the battlefield sites and it's a great base to do this from.

Owner's Response: Nous avons eu, effectivement, un gros souci électrique pendant ce séjour. Nous n'avions JAMAIS eu ce problème pendant plus de dix années !. Nous avons donc, dans un premier temps, pensé que cela était dû à l'utilisation d'appareils non conformes. Au premier appel, nous avons pris la route immédiatement: nous étions à plus de 150 km et nous comprenons que cela ait semblé long, mais nous ne pouvions faire mieux.( ensuite, nous sommes venus de moins loin:( 50km depuis notre autre maison utilisée pendant les périodes de location) Effectivement, nous avons fait une erreur d'appréciation en hésitant à donner la clé de notre sous-sol, très privé, ce qui a pourtant été la seule solution efficace. Nous nous en sommes excusés mais le dérangement était réel pour nos hôtes.(il semble que la difficulté venait de l'adoucisseur d'eau). Pour les autres remarques, ce sont des malentendus explicables par une lecture probablement trop rapide ( eh oui ! ) de mes mails et du contrat En effet, EDF, Gaz, caution, privatisation absolue de la maison, du jardin et de la piscine sont précisés sur le site et rappelés sur mes mails et sur le contrat. Je rends toujours la caution le jour du départ et, certains anglais apprécient de me donner 200 euros en espèces et un titre de paiement de 600 euros. Cela leur évite de faire le retour avec des euros inutiles chez eux. Pour éviter les contre-sens, j'utilise le traducteur google et l'ai d'ailleurs fait en écrivant pour ce séjour. . Nous proposons 200m2 et respectons absolument le descriptif annoncé sur le site. La maison est plus grande et nous nous réservons l'usage de pièces très personnelles qui sont donc fermées. Où se trouve la difficulté ?? puisqu'il n'y a, évidemment, jamais, aucune présence dans le reste de la maison. La maison n'a d'ailleurs qu'une seule grille d'entrée en façade. Lors de l'accueil, mon anglais, assez sommaire, est suffisant pour faire visiter la maison, expliquer les équipements et donner des renseignements sur l'environnement touristique et commercial. De plus il y a une grande abondance de brochures, cartes et de nombreux livres sur la région, dont certains en anglais. Cela se fait toujours dans la bonne humeur car tous sont toujours très heureux de découvrir la maison "plus belle que sur Internet " Ensuite, nous nous "effaçons" pour leur permettre de profiter de "leur" maison, en leur souhaitant de bonnes vacances. Notre compagnie et la qualité de notre anglais sont devenus parfaitement superflus.
