"Disappointing"

As a self-catering option the cottage is not too bad. There were some problems initially which the owners rectified during our stay. The most alarming issue was that the waste bin in the bathroom … More

Hello Dale. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am sorry to hear that you found the cottage accommodation “not to bad” as we truly try and offer a quality rental. Upon your arrival and on the day of your departure you had told me how lovely the accommodation had been and had commented on its lovely furnishings and said how comfortable you had been during your stay. With regards to the iron, ironing board, and teapot I brought these over to you as soon as you requested not long after your arrival. (The hairdryer was under the bathroom sink cupboard.) You were quite right the iron and ironing board should have already been in the cottage. We do an annual stock check and the new iron and ironing board had not been added in the cottage. The bin was a total oversight whilst cleaning from the guests that had left that day. I apologised profusely at the time and changed the bin as soon as you told me, again I am extremely sorry about this oversight. The wifi and internet not working over the weekend was totally out of our control, we were waiting for France Telecom to fix the line, it was up and working Tuesday when you returned, unfortunately these are the joys of living in the French countryside. With regards to your self catering walking holiday I was unaware you were unhappy until the day before you left when you told me. It was such a shame that you had decided not to join in with the main walking group during your second week. Every day your vehicle had left each time we passed and I had concluded you had wished to walk alone, which I quite understood. Maybe you would have had a much more enjoyable experience if you had walked with the rest of us. We obviously want all our guests to have a great holiday here at Lavaud. I only wish you had let me know straight away that you were feeling disappointed as we would of course have done everything we could to rectify this.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. I'm so pleased that you chose it for two of your summer holidays. I'm glad you found the cottage well presented and that the farmhouse kitchen is roomy enough to prepare and enjoy family meals. It's also good to know that the children made full use of the garden. The rear lawn does provide a huge play space. Dining al fresco on the rear terrace makes it easy for all the family to join in! The cottage is in an outstanding location to visit some of the most beautiful villages and attractions in the area and Angles-sur-l'Anglin is just one of them. We always feel the cottage is a lovely rustic haven to return to after a busy day and are so happy that you enjoyed your stays there. We'd love to have you back.
