"For Sale - ripped off deposit"
Directions and instructions for the house had to be requested and consisted of the address and being told to use SatNav - our in car one didn't register the road as it is quite new. Not a helpful… More
Thank you for your comments
We're very sorry that you feel the need to give our property a one star when you left a lovely comment in the guest book saying
'LOVELY HOUSE, EXCEPTIONALLY WELL EQUIPPED, THANK YOU '
The bbq was an oversight and has been addressed, so we apologise for that.
The bath plug has been addressed.
Our advert shows our pool as being above ground. With measurements.
The reason the pool is locked is because of the strict safety regulation laws in France regarding private pools. So safety is a must.
The security deposit holding is to be applied against the reasonable cleaning as well as breakages (stated in the booking terms and conditions, also stated on the website)
Our housekeepers have great experience in managing a number of properties in the area, so are well aware of what to expect when guests leave. In this instance there was a substantial amount of extra cleaning and laundry.
With regards to the rubbish. Our housekeepers did not and would not go through guest's rubbish. The house book has all the instructions on rubbish disposal, plus there are labelled recycling boxes. All of which have never been a problem with previous guests. The sorting was of the roadside council bins. A local law because the bin men wont take your rubbish if its not correctly placed in the bins.
There is no photographic evidence of the pool damage because we will have to empty it at the end of the season.
All our bookings will be honoured.
Constructive criticism is always welcome.
Will send out detailed directions to the property in future and re google distances.

"An excellent house in a lovely area"
Vue de Tournesol provided a very high standard of accomodation. It was very clean and the caretakers were most attentive and helpful. The weather was great and the small swimming pool well used. We enjoyed discovering the surrounding area both on foot and by car. The village had a good range of small shops including an excellent butchers. We would highly recommend this property.

"Fantastic holiday home with beautiful views"
Vue de Tournesol offered exactly what we were looking for as a group of 10 friends looking to share a holiday. The property catered for all our needs as a large group, was well presented, modern and clean.
The house offered spectacular views across vineyards which were greatly enjoyed in the sunshine of the garden throughout the day and into the evening. It was particularly lovely to watch the sunset each evening across the vineyards.
It was a brilliant location for making day trips to the surrounding areas with lakes, beaches and beautiful medieval towns. An exhilarating day was also spent canoeing down the river Aude which we would definitely recommend. The property is also situated in a quiet location within walking distance to the village.
