Beautiful villa but no air conditioning

  • 2 of 5

We searched for an air conditioned villa with its own pool and found what looked like an incredible villa. We arrived at 7:30pm and had to wait outside for over an hour while the villa was cleaned. Not a great start. Then as soon as we were let inside, I spoke to the owner on the cleaners phone about how to work the air conditioning. I was told by him there was no air conditioning, apart from a box in one of the small bedrooms. I said to him we had rented an air conditioned villa and we needed this facility. He was not interested in this and said he read the advert differently even though it clearly says air conditioning.

Further to numerous telephone calls and emails we got aircon in the master suite on day 4 when the owner visited with his daughter. The main living area remained turned off despite all the requests. The owner was slow to respond to emails and offered no refund for the lack of an essential service. He suggested he would bring us a nice bottle of wine. He also suggested we keep the shutters closed. Not really appropriate compensation for an expensive rental. We requested fair compensation for the lack of aircon but this was rejected. When you are sitting sweating in a villa and you have paid for air conditioning, you feel pretty upset and cheated. It was over 30 degrees outside and generally 25+ inside!

Other things to note: DVD player did not work, no satellite TV (only standard channels), beds very uncomfortable and poor bedding for a villa of this quality. No toilet in 2nd bedroom ensuite as claimed, multi jet shower in main bathroom only runs cold and 2nd shower head doesn't stay in position. Bring your own table tennis equipment as the bats and balls are junk. Constant problems with ants including in the downstairs bedroom. Oven controls have no markings and not explained. 1 broken chair in patio furniture, 1 broken in dining room furniture. Garden was over grown in a lot of areas and needed some TLC. Photos are misleading as they show the same rooms with different furniture layouts.

We were very disappointed with the way we were treated and felt cheated by the owner. We found out later wires were disconnected in the main fuse box and the master suite was turned off there also. This ruined what should have been a great family holiday in a lovely location.

The owner of this property would rent you a car in the desert with air con and tell you to open the window to activate it.

Owner's Response: Since I rent (over 20 locatires pleased this year to see comments on another competitor site!) I have never met a tenant as bad faith. I expect this tenant at 14 hours on request, so I did expect the maid to 21 hours once she started the household to 18 hours and when he arrived at 7:30 p.m. asked to wait that the household is over but it was inside and had the villa. I told the tenant that the announcement was very clear there is air conditioning in 2 bedrooms and 3 on the 3rd has a mobile climatisdation. there has never been told that there was air conditioning in the lounge which the passage was not very hot approx 21 ° C After many phone calls and emails for a refund of thousand euros I have not accepted because the house was in accordance with annonce..je have offered bottles of wine to calm .. Other things : DVD player works fine, there are many satellite TV with Freeview, the brand new bedding beds. one room has no toilet which is in the corridor. The multi-jet shower in master bath works fine and 2nd shower stays in position. there is a table tennis table and balls are provided. I am not responsible ants I gave the product Branded Oven Controls gageuneau a very good brand that works great the broken chair in the patio furniture (one armrest only) has been repaired since otherwise nothing broken in the dining room furniture. the garden was completely (supporting invoices) renovated. The photos are real and show all rooms and outdoor. Tenants were very disappointed when we took care of them every day tenants have not ceased to seek money to reduce their cost of living more to prove their good faith they have taken all the keys of the house and remote that I had to redo (supporting invoices). they even blocked the pool (supporting invoice) these people are dishonest and made the villa in a deplorable state 5 hours cleaning were necessary (supporting invoice) I especially recommend not to an owner my worst experience exemple of comments: The villa was exactly what we wanted, somewhere to relax, sunbathe and enjoy our time here. The view from the terrace and the pool is stunning and we didn't get tired of looking at it. There were five adults in our party and the villa was more than adequate to accommodate all of us without feeling crowded, it suited our needs perfectly. It is ideally situated with shops under 5 mins walk away and the town less than 10 mins. Carry le Rouet is lovely with plen Alain MEFFRE
