We stayed here during Summer 2012; it's a pleasant farmhouse divided into 4 apartments, one
inhabited by the owners. As it was 750 euros to stay in the smaller apartment, we had high expectations.
There is no privacy between each apartment and we found this annoying as the owners seemed forever on a supervision drive. The kitchen was not generously equipped - one
drying cloth, 2 tablets only for the dishwasher, no extra bin bags, no powder for the washing machine, no iron or ironing board. The rules and regulations that we had to sign made us aware that we had very punctilious hosts. We ensured on the last day that all was clean and in order despite being given no cleaning materials.
On our return home, we were informed that 25 euros would be deducted from our safety deposit and despite protestations, we finally agreed, merely to be rid of the rants that accompanied each e-mail [and this one too, I'm sure!] Having booked holiday accommodation for over 40 years at home and abroad, this was my first ever experience of being accused of not having left a property in good order.
Such a shame as overall, we enjoyed the area. Just a pity about the hosts!
