Would I recommend this property? Absolutely not!!
We chose this property for a party of 6 adults as it’s spacious (sleeps 10, 4 bedrooms)& has 4 bathrooms. This is how it is advertised. It was expensive but potentially reasonable for such (supposedly) generous accommodation.
We were horrified to find that of the 3 bedrooms one is a mezzanine with double bed; one a bunk bed with double below, single on top; the 3rd room is a single bunk.
There is another, locked bedroom downstairs. We weren’t offered the use of it but could see through a window that it’s unfurnished.
There is an open plan bathroom & toilet in the mezzanine, nothing in bedroom 2, a shower and sink in bedroom 3 and a shower/sink room off the corridor with a toilet next door..total: 3 showers, 2 toilets Misleading!
The property is still advertised as 4 bathroom & 4 bedr (sleeps 10). There is no way that 10 people could have been properly accommodated in this property!
There’s a dining table with 4 chairs: we managed with a couple of lightweight metal ones from elsewhere in the house, then realised that 2 of the chairs were damaged & no use. The owner had made no attempt to provide any more - he did tell us that there might be some that we could use in the shed, steep on the hillside & added that he didn’t know what state they were in and couldn’t be responsible. Fortunately, they were usable if filthy.
There were 2 sun loungers- inadequate for a house advertised as sleeping 10. We had to buy extra glasses as there weren’t enough for 6, let alone 10. There were adequate knives- every single one had a broken handle.
There were no wardrobes (or hanging rails) in any of the bedrooms, nor were there drawers. We made do with very few shelves.
No bed linen/towels were available . We asked if we could hire them- our question was ignored.
There was at times a terrible smell from the shower in bedroom 3. The owner was aware of this so had put a plastic freezer bag over the plughole..not good enough!
We DID mention our concerns to the owner when he showed us round. Apart from finding a mattress to go on the floor of bedroom 3 so that the couples could at least have a bedroom each, he was rude & unhelpful. Regarding the lack of comfortable seating, he said that English people like to sit down, other nationalities are more active. I pointed out that English people like to relax after a day’s activity!
The owners seem to have no interest whatsoever in providing value for money or trying to ensure that their guests have an enjoyable holiday.
Beautiful new property, high end finish especially the bathrooms. I think we were the first tenants as all the linen and towels were brand new. This was a very last minute booking due to being let down by another owner (not from this website) and the owners did everything they could to ensure the property was ready for our stay. Though there were a few things that can be improved on, I.e. fans for the bedrooms as it gets very hot, a bread knife and other little bits and pieces for the kitchen, once the property is completely finished and the owners get used to renting it out this will be a 100% 5* property. It is also located overlooking the gorge and the village which is a 5-10 minute walk away (depends on how slowly you walk) whitch has a fantastic boulangerie/pattiserie, supermarket and a couple of restaurants. A big thank you to the owners for renting to us at such short notice (the same day) highly recommended .
