    Was meant to have a 14 night stay but left after 8 nights. Cleanliness left a lot to be desired. Furniture was old and of poor quality. When owner was spoken to regarding the cleanliness her response of 'how do I not know that you did this' was less than helpful. As was being asked 'what's wrong with me'. Local French agent failed to contact us regarding our concerns. Do NOT stay here.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the agency; You contacted the Agency six days into your holiday to say the property wasn't clean. Other guests had rated cleanliness at 10 out of 10. The local agent did visit the house a week before your arrival and everything had been very clean. The furniture is of good standard and in-keeping with a cottage of this style. The photos on the website do reflect this. Every other guest without exception has been very happy here and rated the house highly so we were very surprised to receive your comment.

    We decided to try a trip to France this year which was drivable in one day. We had never tried the Atlantic coast area, and really loved it. The beach at St. George de Didonne was terrific. We also explored the beautiful Ile de Re. The cottage was lovely in the traditional French style, and the interior was cool in the 37 degrees heat. We also enjoyed the private garden and the adjacent sunflower fields. The owner lived next door and invited us for aperitifs, much appreciated!
