“Fantastic stay, living the dream for our 5 short nights”
Reviewed 10 April 2012 for a stay in March 2012

From the start we had a great service organizing the cottage. We had no problem finding the place and had a warm welcome from our host. The cottage though basic was perfect for us offering a truly authentic rustic french experience. We stayed in the Villa Mimossa which was perfect for us (couple) which had beautiful views and only a few yards from the river where I fished. Already planning a trip later this year.

Estimado Cristina:
Nos alegramos de que haya disfrutado de su estancia en Le Four a Sel. Gracias por sus amables palabras sobre nosotros y por tomarse el tiempo para escribir . Villa Mimosa está situado en la parte trasera de jardín de propiedad, y debido a su ubicacion y las gruesas paredes de piedra, la señal wifi dentro de la casa es débil. Sin embargo, se puede obtener una buena señal justo fuera de la casa, en el jardín .Debido usted vino aquí en febrero, que era demasiado frío para quedarse fuera. También puede conseguir wifi en la terraza cubierta.Sin embargo hay wifi dentro de nuestras otras 2 casas en la propiedad: Villa Hibiscus y Villa Orchidee ya que se encuentran cerca de la terraza cubierta donde el Livebox (caja de internet) se encuentra.
Saludos, Brenda et David

Dear Crisitina:
We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Le Four a Sel. Thank you for your kind words about us and for taking the time to write about it. Villa Mimosa is located in the garden side of our property in the back , and because of its location and the thick stone walls , the wifi signal inside the house is weak. Hence our advert states that wifi can be accessed from hotspots in the property, such as in the garden just outside your house and in the covered terrace and covered play area. I fully appreciate the fact that you found this inconvenient because you came here in February , and it was too cold to stay outside to access the internet .
However there is wifi inside our 2 other houses on the property :Villa HIbiscus and Villa Orchidee because they are located near the covered terrace where the livebox (box for the internet) is situated.

Kind regards,
Brenda and David
