About Lynda Roth

Young retiree of Education, loving nature, hiking, bike rides, cooking, travel and especially the people ..

Lynda Roth purchased this house in 2008

Why Lynda Roth chose Villedubert

Pottery ancient from the 1800s, transformed into a house full of originality. A true coup de coeur and the region offers a great diversity of landscapes (sea (Gruissan, Narbonne) Montagne noire, near to Spain, many historic sites ...)

What makes this house unique

House very well equipped and very functional. The terrace, facing south, overlooking the roofs of the village, offers wonderful views on the top of mountains and on a clear day, the Pyrenees. The calm of this small village, both near Carcassonne and away from all the pollution on city life is quite appreciable. The beds very comfortable, you will spend peaceful nights.

Very disappointing; would not recommend due to owner

  • 1 of 5

We are a mature professional couple holidaying with our grown up son and booked this property for the facilities, 2 bathrooms, dishwasher, washing machine. Our late arrival was pre arranged with the owner and was due to our son's late arrival into Toulouse airport. We arrived at the property at the arranged time of 10.30 pm and the owner showed us around with the assistance of a neighbour acting as translator. Once the owner left we made a visit to the bathroom and this was when it became evident that there was no water available - not a drop from any of the taps, not even able to flush the loo. On calling the neighbour we were told that the water was off and may be back on in the morning - a minor detail which they omitted to mention. We had been travelling since 5am and needed a hot shower so decided to try and find somewhere else to stay even though it was late; fortunately we managed to find a 24 hr hotel with 2 available rooms and checked in at midnight. We e mailed the owner to let her know how disappointed we were that she had failed to inform us about the lack of water and to let her know that we had to check into a hotel at an additional cost. The response we got was that she was unaware of the lack of water - this was in spite of the fact that she lived in the adjoining property so it was a surprise that she didn't know about it. The following day we received a call from the neighbour to let us know that the water was back on so we returned to the property and started our holiday a day late. Having already paid for the property we considered it a reasonable request to ask for one night to be refunded to us; this was less than the cost of the hotel so we felt that it was a fair request. Ms Roth told us in an e mail that it was our choice to check into a hotel and she blamed our late arrival for the inconvenience - she was not prepared to make any compromise and did not refund any monies; we could have coped if the power had been cut but not without water. This is an extract from her e mail: "As for your hotel night, this was your choice. The house was available and without your very late arrival, everything would have gone well. I could not occupy my house that night and I also pay to occupy another place."

Owner's Response: I was disappointed with your review, which contrasts with all the other reviews I have ever received, which have only ever been 5*. I feel you focussed on one negative event during your stay, and does not reflect the house, or my hospitality. The water cut was out of the blue (contrary to your review), and out of my control. The water cut happened after checkin, and affected the whole village. My neighbour tried to assure you by phone that this had happened last year, and we were not unduly concerned. Brief outages of water and electricity can happen in rural France, and water was restored early next day. My neighbour tells me there was no discussion over whether to spend the night elsewhere, otherwise we would have been able to reassure you further. As for all my guests, there was 2 litres of water in the fridge, but of course, I see it would have been good to shower after the travel. I would also like to share some other niceties, in addition to the usual hospitality, which you have overlooked in your review - the flexibility to checkin two hours later than normal, with a welcome bottle of wine - as you spoke no French, my neighbour kindly also agreed to help you understand the check-in at that time - you made good use of the bikes left at no cost - After the bathroom was flooded by the shower, left on during the watercut, I did not make a fuss or try to charge you for the extra cleaning to make the house habitable again. I hope your enjoy your stay otherwise and wishing you the very best in the future .

Accueil et maison de charme!

  • 5 of 5

Merci Lynda de votre accueil et de votre disponibilité, même pour un départ très matinal de votre maison. J'ai trouvé que la maison a beaucoup de charme, et de plus est très bien équipée . J'ai beaucoup aimé le séjour dans votre maison. L'unique bémol : le vent d'autan empêchait de temps en temps de profiter de la terrasse.Le canal du Midi est tout proche à pied et le village de Villedubert très calme. Merci encore Lynda!

Superb house in every way

  • 5 of 5

Lynda's house is truly wonderful. It is in a very sweet village, full of friendly people, and is beautifully appointed. Everything is of a high quality and I cannot think of anything that could have been added to the decor, furniture or equipment. I heartily recommend the house to anyone and hope to stay there again myself.

CASA ESTUPENDA

  • 5 of 5

La casa es estupenda, más grande de lo que esperabamos. Con todos los detalles y en un pueblo precioso y muy acogedor. No tuvimos la suerte de conocer a la propietaria porque habia sufrido un percance, pero nos atendio Guadalupe una amiga suya y estuvo siempre atenta con nosotros. Si decidimos volver por la zona, que es muy bonita, alquilaremos de nuevo la casa.
