5 of 5 stars Reviewed 25 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Lavaud Cottage is an excellent base to explore the region. We still have plenty to see so a return stay is inevitable. We did have a couple of rest days by the pool in 32 degree heat with just the sounds of the crickets and aerobatics of the many small birds. This is an ideal holiday cottage both inside and out. Photos don’t do the accommodation justice as it is of a very high standard. The supermarket (with fuel station) is on the main road about 5 miles away. Our only complaint is we should have booked two weeks instead of one but that will be remedied next time.

As a self-catering option the cottage is not too bad. There were some problems initially which the owners rectified during our stay.

The most alarming issue was that the waste bin in the bathroom had not been emptied and was full of used feminine hygiene products. (Actually, I didnt look too closely at this ghastly discovery, but I think that was what the bin contained.)

Another concerning feature was that the wi-fi was not working when we arrived on Saturday and did not work until Tuesday evening when the "problem" was fixed.

The advertisement says that the cottage has a hairdryer and an iron. Neither were in evidence. I asked for an iron and one was provided as well as an ironing board and a teapot which I had also requested.

However, the worst thing about our stay was the self-guided (and self-catered) walking holiday component that we opted for. We paid for this for one week of our two week stay. This was at a cost of 550 GBP...

Hello Dale. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am sorry to hear that you found the cottage accommodation “not to bad” as we truly try and offer a quality rental. Upon your arrival and on the day of your departure you had told me how lovely the accommodation had been and had commented on its... more
