Perfect stay, bad aftertaste
Small , but cleverly furnished, secluded from village despite central location, large porch.
Homeowner asked us to pay an extra fee for extended cleaning after check-out.
The dishwasher was supposed to be extremely dirty (photo shows milk stains, that you can wipe off easily), so was the oven (we apologise, have forgotten the aluminium foil on the baking tray, after heating a ready bought dish; when you remove the foil, you are done with cleaning), and the little carpet at the entrance was dirty (it had rained the night before check-out; the house provides no doormat, you have to use that small carpet in the entrance inside; can be tucked into the washing machine, which we couldn’t, as it was our checkout day). These three points were marked down as two (!!!) extra needed hours for heavy cleaning.
The thing that bugs me is, the cleanliness of the house was lacking in so many areas, but never thought about complaining. Having someone with that cleaning ethos in particular complain about us leaving everything “extremely dirty” seems inappropriate.
We never even complained about the iron, which had a cable which was damaged at at least 5 spots, with the wire showing without insulation; we couldn’t iron, but didn’t want to be a bother; only informed the homeowner in an email to dispose of it.
As for the spotlessly clean house one would expect after those crass accusations:
- the bedlinen, inside the sleep couches drawer, smelled mouldy; we had to wash it
- towels smelled bad, one had huge stains
- we had to flip the saggy mattress and found a huge yellow stain
- 80% of cutlery and glasses were dirty/sticky, had to re-wash everything we used
- vase that holds cooking spoons etc is covered with grease
- great BBQ outside, but grit covered with grime of previous usage; had to clean that too
- toys that fell behind sofa had to be washed (covered in thick dust and other people’s hair)
This still was a pleasant stay. You don’t book a holiday home because the cutlery is clean, this is not the Ritz after all, so your expectations should be accordingly.
And I would never have mentioned these, as they go with the territory.
But being accused of leaving a house extremely dirty, making the cleaner work extra hours, is not fair when the place wasn’t clean in the first place.
We genuinely apologize if our cottage was not cleaned to your expectations and will discuss this with our housekeeper. As renters can see by our continuous five star reviews over the years, we strive to be accurate and meet or exceed our guests' expectations. We do ask that our guests leave our property as they found it and we are happy to say that in 8 years renting our home we have never had any differences with our renters. It's important to us that our guests are comfortable and we appreciate it when our guests advise us if there are any problems so that we may quickly resolve such problems early on during their stay - as opposed to advising us after a claim for damages or additional cleaning is required. Obviously, if we had understood that you were uncomfortable or felt the home was as dirty when you arrived, we would have better comprehended why it was left in the state it was.
Lovely place 1000 metres from town, but once there you wouldn't know. Total privacy. Lovely Cabin inside and out, bed was really comfy. Parking bit of a nightmare as road very narrow and steep. Amboise is a proper tourist town and prices reflect this.
So glad you were comfortable and I’m sorry for the difficulties parking. Sometimes it’s super easy and occasionally we have to go a bit further. We really suggest small compact cars as well! I’ll add this to our description.
Beautiful and Relaxing Stay
We loved our stay at La Petite Vinge. It was a perfect location for exploring the Loire Valley and to catch up on some rest and relaxation.
Thanks for taking care of the place. So glad you had a nice time.
Amboise está situado en el corazón del Valle del Loira, con fácil acceso a los numerosos castillos, parques, bosques y sitios de la región. Recomendamos encarecidamente el Festival de Jardines de Chaumont (15 minutos en coche) de mayo a octubre, y hacer turismo a caballo en Les Ecuries du Pray a sólo 10 minutos en bicicleta.
