About Sam

My name is Nadia and my family, and I use the house for a few weeks during the Easter break and sometimes at Xmas. I have been letting out the property for ten years and it is managed for me by my son and daughter-in-law as I am now retired.

Sam purchased this villa in 2004

Why Sam chose Lezignan-Corbieres area

The surrounding countryside is beautiful and yet it is not far to the beach or big towns for markets. It is a perfect place to get away from it all and relax.

What makes this villa unique

The house is all on one level so I can get about easily. The garden is well-tended and south-facing so I can sit out there until late evening, and the house has all the windows facing the garden and pool. The pool itself has ledges so I can sit in the pool without being submerged.

Quel dommage !!!

  • 3 of 5

La maison pourrait-être splendide, mais comme elle est en vente, on la sent l'abandon...

Il manque tout ce dont on peu avoir besoin dans une villa de vacances que l'on loue ce prix là, au milieu de nulle part, à 6kms du premier commerçant.

Aucune information sur le fonctionnement de la climatisation du salon, des lits de 140 ce qui à notre époque où l'on est plutôt grand est inconcevable, la proprepreté douteuse etc ... Heureusement la femme de ménage qui remets les clés est formidable et j'avais les moyens de la prendre pour remettre la maison en état et la lui faire entretenir.

Attention à la piscine, malgré ce que dit la propriétaire, elle n'est pas au normes de sécurités quand on a des enfants et certaines parties des margelles peuvent être dangereuses car là encore pas entretenues.

Je ne parle pas des casseroles qui devraient passer à la poubelle tellement elles sont usées, pas d'assiettes à dessert, bref je pourrai en écrire des pages.

J'ai en revanche préparé un courrier au Maire du village et au Préfet pour ce qui concerne la piscine et qui partiront en début de semaine en RAR.

Ceci-dit, la région est fabuleuse...

Mais vraiment cette maison est hors de prix pour sa réalité de confort et de situation. Je ne dis pas cela au hasard, j'ai pris le temps d'en visiter d'autres pour louer dans la même région l'année prochaine...

Last but not least, la propriétaire est injoignable au téléphone et si elle répond aux mails très poliment, elle n'en a rien à faire, elle cherche juste le profit.
