    Overall, we felt deflated after the holiday. Firstly, the house. Downstairs, the open plan allowed flexibility, enabling us to eat together, play cards etc and it certainly possessed a rustic charm. Upstairs, there was a spartan quality to the rooms. In bedroom 1, there was a tiny window in the roof and it became unbearably hot at night, forcing two of the children to sleep on sofa downstairs. Bedrooms two and three had windows that could be opened. There were no wardrobes or chests of drawers. Instead, the owner had provided metal frames for hanging or stacking clothes in two rooms which were out of keeping with rest of furniture. The bathroom was clean and shower hot. However, it had a slightly frosted but still see-through window that looked onto an internal upstairs corridor. We had to use drawing pins and a towel to cover the window, which, from the evidence of the frame, other guests had had to do. Finally, a huge wooden beam straddled the top of the stairs and one end of the corridor. I hit my head twice on the thing, drawing blood each time. So, our overall impression of the house was that it had the potential to be an excellent holiday home but needed work: a blind in the bathroom; wardrobes in keeping with age of house; fabric wrapped around beam to provide a degree of protection; fans in bedrooms. Little quibbles, you might argue, but they gave the unfortunate impression that customer comfort and satisfaction had not been put first. Secondly, the owner. She lived in the next-door house and greeted us on arrival. There were a number of dos and don'ts. Fair enough. She kept referring to the house as a place to chill and relax. However, later in the week, she complained about the noise our children were making in the pool, claiming it 'travelled for miles' and 'it was the first time she'd ever had to say anything in 15 years.' Noise is a subjective thing. My wife and I were reading in the cottage and did not find the noise excessive. From a customer point of view, I was more concerned by her manner. 'This is a place to be quiet and chill out,' I was reminded. So, if you have children/teenagers who like splashing about and making noise, I do not recommend this cottage for you and I feel the owner should state this explicitly on the website. On our final night, the owner stopped my wife and reminded her there was a 50 euro cleaning charge if the house wasn't clean enough for guests arriving next day. 'It is my house', the owner said, 'and all I want to have to do is change the bedclothes.' We always tidy up before we leave any holiday home but, we paid a lot of money for a week's stay, and resented the fact that the owner seemed to expect paying guests to prepare the cottage for other visitors. In summary, our holiday was adversely affected by the owner. We felt over-looked, inhibited, stifled and we felt the owner had somewhat missed the principle of the whole enterprise: that a house is rented for a week and should feel like home from home. We won't be returning.
