Lovely house, unpleasant departure
The house was wonderful, simple but very comfortable (apart from the sofa bed in the living room) There were all the facilities we needed, the pool was amazing and the location was peaceful. The man of the house was incredibly kind. He volunteered to give us a lift into town, helped my daughter rescue her teddy from the washing machine and was generally really pleasant. We had to hand over a 500 euro deposit in cash on arrival (we only had 300 which they were kind enough to accept) so if you are from the UK, take a cheque. We really enjoyed our stay and had a great time. On the last day, there were problems with departure. The lady of the house came to inspect the property and was very unhappy with the "state we left it in" and seemed like she didn't want to hand over the deposit. We paid 40 euros in cleaning but she seemed to expect us to have cleaned the property before we left despite this. I asked her to identify what the issues were with the cleanliness of the house and she couldn't give me any examples of what the problem was. She found a 1cm tear in one of the duvet covers which she charged me 20euros to replace. The bedding was clean but certainly not new (faded and worn) so this meant the final hour in the house was me rushing around washing floors and cleaning toilets to please her for fear that she wouldn't return the 300euros deposit. Not the ideal end to the holiday. We didn't break anything, we removed bedding and put it in the washing machine, did all the washing up and cleaned out the fridge but that wasn't enough. All that was left to do was, sweeping, dusting, making beds etc etc but she wasn't happy. An unpleasant end to an otherwise lovely holiday.
Beautiful country setting.
Perfect country setting to explore the French countryside.
Fantastic holiday in a lovely place
We had a wonderful holiday in lovely surroundings. There were 6 of us including 2 young children. The gite/cottage is lovely with 3 large bedrooms upstairs, living/dining room, kitchen and shower room downstairs. We had full use of the whole garden and swimming pool - shared with the owners - Annie and Alex are lovely, warm people who were very welcoming.
The grandchildren loved the pool which can be open air or used in the rain with the cover over it. The pool area can be locked so is very safe and there are lots of inflatable toys for the pool. There are swings in the garden and toys and plenty of space for kids to play in. Everything was provide from towels, tea towels to washing up liquid and toilet rolls Free wifi is provided, there is a TV and board games in the cupboard. When we arrived there were 2 bottles of local wine in the fridge for us. Annie and Alex only speak a little English and we don't speak much French but we got by with Google Translate and sign language. Chaulgnes is a small village but there is a boulangerie and small supermarket. A big thank you to Annie and Alex
