Like previous reviewers, we found Carole and Tony to be warm and helpful hosts- even arranging for a doctor for a sick member of our party. The information and descriptions on the website are factually accurate: specifically the sunny corner apartment and adjoining room was ideal for two adult couples who cooked, dined, socialized, and played cards. Montblanc is a wonderful base from which to explore extensive wine-making territory and large scenic areas.
What disappointed was the level of poor housekeeping and disarray. We found it unsettling to look out upon what could be a pretty garden and see dead plants, extra hoses, empty containers, unused tools. Or the hose-end dropped on our balcony some while ago and left to collect dust. Or poorly cleaned and maintained bathrooms and kitchen. The Wifi system barely reaches past the door into the apartment so that it was necessary to stand at the door to download news and e-mails- a funny scene with four internet users.
Overall we would recommend Villa Roquette if it was really cleaned, made to be visually appealing and fully functional. Over a dozen visits to France, we have stayed in many Gites, Chambre d'hotes, and rental apartments where a higher level of care is the norm.
