Residence soleil flic en flac

Hi! Has anyone stayed at the Resdence Soleil in Flic en Flac? I've been offered a very attractive rate to stay here but the only reviews I can find are from flip key and they are posted by one-time posters.

If anyone has any advice I would be very grateful.

Thanks in advance.

These are the only reviews on TA. Rentals tends to have lower reviews than hotels.

Do you have a road name for this property? I checked the map on the listing and it appears to be behind a restaurant "Ah Youn" but also close to another, Domaine Anna. This is impossible, as Domaine Anna is out of town.

My only other comment would be that there are no actual pictures, just a layout format. Price does seem cheap indeed and they are also offering free transfers from airport. This could be too good to be true.

Preston traveller - yes I saw those reviews but the reviewers all seem to have only done the one review - which always makes me a little suspicious.

Mazza50 - I know what you mean - it does almost seem too good to be true! No I don't have a street. The invoice I was sent was c/o an English address.

I've also been looking at a place in Trou d Eau Douce. It Bronia's advice is that there's nothing nearby in the way of shops and restaurants, and whilst that really appeals to me to a large extent it would be nice not to have to cook all the time!

In a quandary!

If you have a UK address (and phone number?) of the owners why not speak to them and ask for more details? I would certainly do that.

I would also suggest contacting one of the reviewers for more information..

If it is just near to Ah Youn then it is only a walk away from restaurants, shops etc.

Ok Mqzza maybe I should do that. Just like to hear an unbiased opinion too if you know what I mean?

Yes I do know exactly what you mean, I'll keep an eye open for that name when I'm next there soon.

Northumberland-lady, did you book? I've had good look round the area and can't see anything that resembles the artists impression on the reviews, or the name on a gate. It might well be located much further away from the town.

Hi Mazza, no - it all sounded a bit too 'unclear' and too good to be true!

Lucky you - back there again!!!
