Thank you for your comments and suggestions. We are always open to receiving feedback and will definately look into the comments you have raised. There are stairgates available on request for the younger visitors and I agree wooden floors can be a bit slippery with just socks on so extra care should be taken when walking around especially when using the stairs. Maybe there is a product which can be utilised in this case otherthan carpets which don't normally exist here in France (only on rare ocassions). We will look to placing a rug adhesive in the lounge or even discard the rug altogether. Flies can be a problem sometimes in France and so maybe by purchasing a 'electronic wall mounted zapper' may help the situation but is not a problem all summer round. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay here and look forward to seeing you all next year.
