    Although the house was lovely and well situated there were a few issues. The main issue was the church bells. No mention of them anywhere in the advertising !!! They ring on the hour every hour with one chime per hour, 1 for 1 o'clock and 12 for 12 o'clock, not once but twice through and a single chime every half hour. Not overly noticeable during the busy day but a nightmare through the night !!!! To add insult to injury they also do a medley of bells at 7am every day, I assume to wake up the village. Consequently we are now suffering from sleep deprivation. We could not find 'The house book' that was mentioned so had no idea about the waste disposal arrangements but used out initiative to sort it. When paying the amount of money we did I do not think this is good enough. One or two maintenance issues need attending to as do the smelly drains !!! Shower in room 5 doesn't function properly, several light bulbs not working and the wifi only seems to work in the kitchen and lounge area with any degree of success. Again for the money paid a poor effort.

    An excellent stay in this beautiful house. Lots of room for everyone with plenty of bathrooms and endless hot water. Set in the middle of a small village it is surrounded by local shops (the nearby patisserie and chocolatier being a must) and a short stroll from a bar. The house was perfectly clean and had a large, well equipped kitchen. Some of the furniture was a little worn but this added to the homely feel of the house. One small note is that the local restaurant is open lunchtimes only. We loved staying at Maison du Donjon and would love to book again but have since noticed that the house is up for sale.
