Thank you for the lovely review, you've captured exactly what we love about the house. We have invested in a wood store and our friend on the mountain, Bruno, fills it regularly with wood that's cut to the right size. So you shouldn't now need to chop wood (unless you want to, of course!)

The Pizzeria is a wonderful part of the experience. It is staffed by the friendly locals and does great Pizzas and our favourite Calzone anywhere!

We are grateful to all our guests that they take time to write thoughts on their stay - you are only as good as your last review! I am slightly puzzled why this review has come 21 months after their stay. We care deeply that all guests have the holiday they hope for, and after ten years of looking after people we feel aware of any problems that might arise. The casita is a self catering arrangement; we welcome all guests with a drink and let them know about the local area and how to get the best from their stay. We like to give our guests as much privacy as possible but are always on hand and happy to provide care and advice when they need it.

The photos illustrate the casita accurately and the clear uninterrupted view down to the Gibraltar Straits. The casita is small, but with a good sized bedroom, galley kitchen and bathroom. The large terrace with plenty of seating becomes the outdoor living area in the summer and has spectacular views to Morocco. Whilst we are in the country, road access to the fantastic beaches and charms of the local area is nearby. Fortunately I cannot remember a previous complaint about road noise, and the road is not visible and a couple of minutes' drive to access. The country is full of different noises, some more vocal than others, barking dogs are part of life here (but there are not numerous packs of large dogs as implied), as are crowing cockerels, goat bells, cicadas, Nightingales and constant bird song. We are always open to any comments or suggestions guest may have in order to improve and make their stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

Thank you for your lovely review. It was a pleasure to meet you and your charming mother-in-law. We are glad that all of you including your dog, enjoyed your holiday.

It is in the autumn and spring when the days are warm but the nights are cold that there was problem with condensation. We have now fitted a built in dehumidifier which has solved the condensation problem completely and are currently making further improvements to ensure that our guests have a comfortable stay eg we have just had an extractor fan fitted in the bathroom to reduce the water vapour getting into the cottage.

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Les Fleurs and thank you
for your comments regarding our meals and wines.
Not sure that we understand your thoughts on Doue la Fontaine etc when
you walk out of our gates there are lots of vintners offering wine
tastings. Two are within 200 yards. Perhaps you didn't investigate Doue
la Fontaine and the sites close by enough as guests who return year on
year come back because we are at the centre of so much.
Apart from the world famous Zoo, Doue la Fontaine is the rose garden of
France and has Les chemins de la Rose is a 4 hectares landscaped floral
park planted with 1300 varieties of botanical, old and modern roses;
there are numerous cafes and restaurants also the troglodytique town of Rochemenier, just a few minutes from Doue La Fontaine, The Museum of Commerce in Doue la Fontaine, takes you back to the 19th century shopping experience, Mushroom museums where you can taste the different varieties; Caves Lumiere a troglodytiques setting with sculptures are all within 15 minutes of our property.
Travelling a little further afield. But staying within 30 minutes to 1
hour's drive we have:
Puy du Fou, Monteuil Bellay, Saumur, Breze, Montsereau and Brissac
Chateaux not forgetting the chateaux of Valendry, Asay du Riddeau and
others. Plus the Beautiful villages with beautiful churches of Canault, Chenutte and Treves are just 20 minutes.
Doue la Fontaine has many bars, restaurants, 5 supermarkets, sports
Shops, fishing shops, an excellent market on Monday's plus tennis courts
An indoor swimming pool, skate Boarding Park to name but a few.
There is a file in the gite giving a comprehensive overview of
everything in the area, in future we will point this file out to guests
incase they miss it.
We do hope to welcome you all back one day and we can talk over all the
nearby sites you missed.
