The Spacious French Country Home With Pigeonnier For Self Catering Holidays



Updated: 12-Jul-2016
Chateau / Manor House in Montrosier, Tarn, Midi-Pyrenees, France - Spacious French Country Home With Pigeonnier For Self Catering Holidays

Sans Façon was the original two storey winery for the village of Montrosier built with a pigeon loft around 1830. The owners have meticulously restored the buildings and sympathetically created two interconnecting houses as well as a pool house and swimming pool and garage. The two buildings both have their own separate entrances but share a (lockable from both sides) internal connecting door meaning they can be booked separately or as one unit.

The property looks pretty in the pictures and in general it is HOWEVER, it backs onto a very busy road which generates a lot of noise especially in the morning, so you are woken very early in the summer months if you sleep with the windows open, (which due to the fact the property is without air con) you have little choice. The property has been renovated by the owners and they require a deposit which seemed to us very normal, however, you will not see this deposit again! We left this property after a five night stay, we are a nice family from the UK and stayed here with our two children. We were met by the owners cleaners at 10am sharp when we vacated on the 5th day and handed the keys to the owner cleaners as requested. We were called an hour later to be asked where the keys were, we told the owners managing agents that we left the keys with their cleaners as requested and heard nothing more. A month after returning to the UK we were told by our bank that the owners had cashed our deposit cheque, we were not contacted by the owners or his agents at any stage to notify us of their intentions to cash our cheque or the reasons for this, despite their terms of business clearly stating that the deposit would not be cashed without first notifying us and we agree to proceed and gave the deposit on this basis. We emailed the owners to be told that the house was left dirty and we had broken a table and stained sheets by our sun tan cream and that they to be replaced with We certainly did not break tables or stain sheets or leave the house in a dirty condition, as part of the agreement the house would be cleaned by the owners at the end of our stay, a bit like a hotel room, you are not asked to have this professionally cleaned at the end of a stay. We are most upset by the unprofessional conduct of this owner, the misleading photographs that do not show the busy road to the rear of the property and the fact that this owner can just freely cashed a deposit cheque without any evidence whatsoever of our so called mis use of his property, why not say we knocked down a wall too? without a property inventory or schedule of conditions how can we prove anything. I just think it is a terrible way to act. I therefore warn other potential holiday makers to be careful handing over money to this owner.

Owner's Response: Bookings such as this are taken in good faith, and its rare and unfortunate that we have encountered problems such as this. The security deposit was indeed cashed to cover the cost of replacing the bedding and duvets. There are house rules which were clearly ignored, for example bath towels were used for the swimming pool, furniture was moved around the property and not returned to their original setting. The property was left in a very dirty condition, high quality Egyptian cotton sheets and duvets (eight in total) were heavily stained with suntan lotion or fake tan. Professional cleaning could not remove the residue, so new had to be purchased. General rubbish was put directly into the bin without being put in a bag first. There was also a heat regulating button which was missing from one of the showers. The owner went to the property to interview the cleaner and to verify these matters and to establish the whereabouts of a willow basket and egg basket, both of which were missing at the end of their stay. We will henceforth be including details of the road behind the property on all our property listings and admit this was an oversight, although we have not had any complaints from other guests.
