A great spot to holiday

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a period of 2 months as a family of four. The bedding configuration is two twin beds but we had been informed of this so our two daughters shared a bed.

Kate was very welcoming and kept in contact to make sure everything was OK. We required a couple of things during the stay and Kate got things sorted for us ASAP.

The house is very clean and tidy and a pleasure to live in for 2 months. We always managed to get a park for the car straight outside the front door. The neighbourhood was quiet but nice with great patisseries, butcher and small supermarket. It is also reasonably close to the city and the beaches. It took approx 15-20 mins to walk into town, it is uphill on the way back but not too bad. We generally took the car into town if we were going to the beach so we did not have to carry everything. We always managed to get a park in one of the parking buildings.

I highly recommend staying here.

Great apartment in good location

  • 5 of 5

Bright, clean and spacious apartment. Located within walking distance of all the main beaches and restaurants although the apartment has everything you need if you want to stay in and cook. Small supermarket, pharmacy and bakery all just around the corner.

Perfect a weekend break or proper summer holiday.

Pleasant house

  • 4 of 5

This location was very nice and the owner very available.

The house is close to the beach and the center and we have nothing to declare about cleanliness.

Good find.

En un mot : DECEVANT

Nous ne nous attendions pas du tout à ça !

Pour être plus précis :

Il faudrait ré-intitulé le titre : il ne s'agit pas d'une maison de vacances mais plutôt d'une maison de ville en copropriété !!!!

En fait la maison est divisée en 3 dans le sens vertical ce qui n'est pas précisé dans l'annonce ( du coup on entend les voisins ouvrir leurs volets le matin et ...... ) sans compter la cour ! parlons en de la cour !! elle ne faisait pas plus de 4 m2 et donnait directement sur la baie vitrée des voisins, de plus le chemin d'accès est commun aux autres copropriétaires ce qui fait que vous êtes tous les uns contre les autres donc pour éviter ce désagrément, nous avons pris nos repas uniquement à l'intérieur !

L'intérieur : design c'est sur mais mal entretenu ! tout était sale ! que ce soit à l'intérieur ou à l'extérieur des rangements !!!!! faire du ménage le jour de notre arrivée n'était pas une envie mais une nécessité ! Le volet dans l'une des chambres était cassé et la nuit il s'ouvrait en un coup de vent, le matelas de notre chambre était dans un état déplorable ! pleins de tâches !! un surmatelas ne coute pas si cher et au moins on ne voit plus rien ! cela n'aurait pas été du luxe !!!!

Et cerise sur le gâteau : une voie aérienne passe juste au dessus de la maison !!!!!

Bien sur rien n'était précisé dans l'annonce donc tous les matins vers 9h30 nous étions réveillés par les avions !! heureusement nous partions toute la journée mais ne comptez pas vous reposer dans des conditions pareilles !

Nous nous sommes plaint à la propriétaire de l'état de saleté de la maison , cette dame anglaise est charmante d'ailleurs , elle a eu la courtoisie de nous rembourser les frais de ménage et nous a offert un jour de location !

Enfin ! le prix n'est pas justifié ! quand on paye une location à ce tarif on attend autre chose !

Ce qui est sur c'est que nous n'y retournerons jamais !!!!
