"If only we had electricity"

Thank you for your kind comments and constructive critisicm.

It was such a shame that we had a very severe and wet winter and March turned out to be exceptionally cold - one of the joys of holidaying in rural France is the rustic charm of the old buildings unfortunately, this can also be one of the drawbacks if the weather is cold. We acknowledge the plumbing can be an issue and this is something we are looking into at the moment, however French plumbing does leave a lot to be desired, also when too many people are using electrical items the power can be affected and this is also being addressed.

We do appreciate your comments as it helps us realise the areas we need to address for the comfort of our guests.
