We have just returned from 12 nights at madame vacancies. We stayed in M53 it was a 2 bedroom house, we were pleasantly surprised when we walked through the door. It was home from home, it had everything and more that you needed for a family of 4 . Outside we had a terrace to sit with table and chairs... More

We arrived after the close of reception, but were able to find a staff member quickly who was able to give us our key. He did get them from a secure lockbox out the front - not sure how we would have got our keys without knowing the code to it though! The costs for extra linen and sales tax... More

The villas on this development are fantastic, well furnished, quiet and in a good location. Its a wonderful place to say, unless you have the misfortune to have to deal with the staff and management. Reception is only open for a limited period each day consequently there are always long queues of residents and owners who from my experience are... More

Dear Jane, Many thanks for your review of your stay with us at Les Villas de Fontenelles last August.

1) Customer service is awful - The staff at reception appear disinterested in the guests and don't want to hear what you have to say. They are unhelpful and seem to avoid acting upon your complaints or problems. 2) Annoying pool alarm - Our first night at the villa after hours of travel, and 8 nights after, was interrupted by...

This was a 2-night transit stop for us en route to SW France and was very enjoyable. Plus points: our apartment (a 2-bed duplex for 6 people but we were only 4, so didn't have to use the sofa bed) was perfect for our needs - had everything it needed, in good condition, clean, and had a lovely wide terrace...

We stayed in a villa here.

I have been here for so many years and have had a great time every year! Pool is great but slightly chilly when the sun goes in but is still lovely. Tennis is also lots of fun here. The reception is friendly with English speakers if French is not your best!
