- Directions supplied by local rep were excellent and found villa with ease. The surroundings of the villa are very rural with narrow dirt track access for last part of route.
Internally the villa is somewhat dated and requires some upgrading. As noted by other reviewers there is one news channel (France 24) that you can get in English.
The cleaning during the stay was provided twice weekly and was satisfactory but there were some issues on initial arrival. Items had not been cleaned properly before we arrived and there were high level of ants on work surfaces and on sofa throw. There was also no cleaning equipment and we had to purchase on first day. They did appear outside villa about 4 days into our stay.
We would advice anyone staying to ensure they stock up with lots of ant spray, sealable bags/containers. The property is rural so it is expected but there are number of access points that could be better sealed.
The mattress in master bedroom we found exceptionally uncomfortable. Previous occupants have commented on mattress and knowing I don't mind firm mattress I thought we would be OK. However there is firm and there is solid and this is solid. The owner did change the mattress after we contacted rep but it was regretfully not any better. If you want a goodnight sleep and can't sleep on solid surface then need to think seriously if this villa is for you.
Scoring on value for money has been very much influenced by the dated decor and poor quality of sleep.
Elisabetta the local rep did try to resolve the issues we had. She did come to see us during the stay and contacted the owner, that was appreciated.
The pool is one depth and didn't warm up particularly well. It may be difficult for some with access stepladder and depth as it wasn't possible for me to stand and I am 5ft 5in However it is very well maintained and was checked and cleaned twice weekly .
The main and redeeming features of this particular villa is without a doubt the peacefulness, outlook and views.
