Ella is potentially a wonderful Gite, spacious with a good bedroom and bathroom.
The kitchen was a big disappointment. Dirty shelves and cooking utensils. There was a dishwasher which was repaired part way through our stay however it was impractical to use it as there was only sufficient crockery and cutlery for 2 meals which would have meant using it twice daily. The stove exhaust fan filters were clogged with grease and the light did not work.
The advertised TV was not connected and there was no WiFi although the host did allow us to use his computer.
Outside the garden has run amok.
Attention to detail would restore this Gite to living up to its advertised qualities.
It is a sad fact of life that dishwashers break down. This one broke down on the Saturday, the local repairer came the same day and ordered the part. On the Tuesday, the part came and the dishwasher was repaired. It is not clear to me why this is not evidence of diligence rather than negligence. I defy anyone to have done better.
The TV is for videos. We offer a choice of over 200 DVDs. Enough screen size entertainment for any taste.
The remark about WIFI is, how can we put it, a tad ungenerous. There is NO intimation ANYWHERE that WIFI is available in the gîte. Why then should any guest expect it? Not only that, but we allow our guests, as mentioned, to use our own computer in our own house, for their convenience. Would a little gratitude not have been more fitting? Our guest discloses that we open our own house to offer services that ARE NOT ADVERTISED. And he still finds the heart to complain. There are indeed few better unwitting advertisements.
We are told also that the gîte is spacious, the bedding comfortable and the bathroom perfectly clean, a wonderful gîte. Not so bad then?
So where did we fall down? A couple of 'dirty' shelves, a 'dirty' fan filter, not enough cutlery, and no light in the oven.
Well, these have been remedied, as they would have been on the spot had they been mentioned there and then.
'Faded glory'? Certainly not.
