Wonderful, but not for us
The area is quiet, the wisteria-clad front wall dripping with blossom, the hosts Christiane and Fabrice delightful and so helpful (getting our suitcase up the steep stairs, helping us back out into the street from the secure parking behind the electronic gates, suggestion of a supermarket which would not require travel through a lot of towns and traffic...couldn’t have been nicer). The gite itself is spacious, Fabrice quickly fixed a small problem with the bathroom sink, and we appreciated the small supply of sugar, tea and coffee to help us get started. Heat was on, as it was a bit chilly when we arrived, and Christiane was very accommodating, saying we could come a couple of hours early. So why not for us? We didn’t realize how steep the stairs up to the two bedrooms were...not so bad going up, but very narrow coming down, and with an 83-year-old husband who is blind in one eye and has poor depth perception, as well as being rather unsteady, it was tough to have to go up and down to go to the sole bathroom, which was on the ground floor, especially at night. And the UK king-size (US queen) bed in the amazing master bedroom/living room was so low that my husband had to crawl over to furniture high enough that he could pull himself up when getting out of bed. But the beds in the twin were higher, so a move helped that issue. Didn’t use the dishwasher, stove, or microwave in the kitchen (no oven), but the kitchen and house were well-supplied with crockery, cutlery, and kitchenalia...and the shower is terrific!
We really liked the location (about 25-30 minutes to Monet’s house and Garden in Giverny...about 75-80 minutes to Charles de Gaulle airport) as well as our hosts, and enquired about the ground-floor en-suite rooms they have in the building facing our gite. They looked very nice, but unfortunately for us, had the the same very low beds. Hence the title...basically delightful, but unfortunately not suited for us.
My dear kate, I'm sorry and sad when I read your comment, our ad is written with many details, of course it is very complicated to explain the precise inclination of the stairs. but others our rental is not advertised as being equipped for people with reduced mobility.
I offer you my sincere apologies and wish you a good continuation.
Sitio estupendo para el relax
Una vivienda muy tranquila, relativamente cerca de una carretera principal para poder desplazarse cómodamente por la región. Muy cuidada y todo lo necesario para una semana de estancia. Los propietarios muy amables y atentos.
In case of need of a babysitter, we will contact Lea who will intervene on the spot and will take the children in charge ...
