    Confirmed guest, 23/06/2018
    This is a lovely place but the beds are so uncomfortable and very small it is not air-conditioned and there are no mosquito screens on the windows.we were all badly bitten and a week back i am still suffering. But on a positive note the house is large and the owners very nice but no English-language at all hardly so take your phrase book. It is close to Avignon which is beautiful. There is one bistro in the village, very nice. And a super pizza takeaway. The pool is fab after a day site-seeing Overall we enjoyed our holiday but the beds let it down

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are very surprised to hear these comments after having read the lovely comment you left in the guest book. It’s such a shame you didn’t bring the issues up during your stay as we would have done our best to help. We take great pride in our house, keeping it spotless and we are always available to assist to make visits more pleasant. The beds are the standard size in France (140) but we’ve taken note of this and will be changing one of the beds next season (to a 160) to satisfy more of our holidaymakers. The property description doesn’t mention air-conditioning but we provide fans in each bedroom. We’re sorry that you were not aware of this when booking. Mosquitoes are of course present when the good weather comes, we provide products to deter them but it’s also important to keep windows and doors closed during dusk and the evening when they are most active. We are glad to hear that you appreciated the pool, the surroundings as well as some of the local boutiques! We hope you visit our beautiful region again in the future.
