This accommodation was let down by the standards of cleaning. The bathroom in particular needed attention to the shower head (partially blocked by limescale), and mould in the base. Beds were uncomfortable as the mattresses and pillows were thin.
The chalet was well supplied with cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer as well as cutlery, crockery and table and chairs. The TV was ancient however and had an annoying hum which prevented watching for too long (annoying during the World Cup and Wimbledon!).
The wooden rail to the patio decking was rotten in places, and could be dangerous for children and the unwary.
The site facilities were good with two pools, a gym and tennis court.
Overall the accommodation needed upgrading, deep cleaning and the safety rail replacing.
I would not return.
