"Unexpected holiday highlight"
We had intended to use the gite at Greiffeil as a base to explore Carcassonne and the Cathar region but found ourselves looking forward to returning to this magical rural hamlet every day. Our kids, a… More
We are so thrilled that you enjoyed your time in Greffeil - we too think that it is a magical place and it is a great benefit having such a child friendly river, local walks and the bread lady on the doorstep. This year,our son James(5)has really enjoyed fishing in the river too. We have now adopted a local trick to using an inverted bottle and some bread - the results were amazing! Kind regards, Suzanne

12 Oct 2015
Im afraid to say I was very disappointed with this villa for many reasons. Every room was very dated and not in a French "chic" way. It was advertised with wifi but there was none which was very impor… More
Thank you for your review. Addressing the points raised;
Internet Access: The owner sincerely apologises for the fact that the WIFI was not working during your stay at Villa Lauquet. He had discussed this problem with your husband before your arrival and your husband confirmed by e-mail that it was resolved to his satisfaction by taking up the owner?s advice to buy a USB WIFI dongle at any ISP outlet in Carcassonne. To compensate for this he had, at your husband?s request, reduced the rate for the week you rented the Villa from 900 to 700 UK pounds. Two days after you left, albeit too late for you, internet access was restored by Orange.
Shutters and door locks: Unlike most old properties in France, in 2014, Villa Lauquet was fitted with State of the Art electrically operated shutters on all sliding glass double French doors opening from the salon onto the elevated terrace overlooking the 12 X 6 metre pool and plage area. These are simply operated by the flick of a switch and automatically lock in the closed position. This means that when you wish to pop out of the Villa for whatever reason, you don?t have to wait for them to close you can simply flick the switch and leave. This coupled with a two meter high remotely controlled electric sliding gate provides a very high level of security and privacy at the Villa. In addition, there are also click closed locks on all six sliding glass French doors. All of the access and egress points at the Villa are safe, secure, quick and simple to operate.
If you were having problems working the patio door locks, a quick call to us would have solved this for you as we could have shown you how they operate.
Hair dryer:When you contacted us regarding the hair dryer we resolved this problem in line with your instructions, waiting at first to see if you could find one and then supplying a brand new hair dryer on the day you requested that you wished us to.
Bedding, bedlinen, pillows etc: The bed linen for the house is from Marks and Spencer?s, especially chosen for its hygienic properties and adaptability to the summer heat in Southern France. As the house is fully centrally heated throughout, this range of linen and duvets is also ideal for winter use. Eight hotel quality pillows are normally kept in the main bedroom press for the convenience of guests, and more in the second bedroom press. There are complete sets of linen, towels etc for eight guests at a time stored on the mezzanine. We apologise that this was not in fact the case during your visit, a misunderstanding of how the Villa was to be configured for the week of your stay. Once again, however, we would have been happy to make up all the beds at your request.
In regard to the Cockerel at the neighbour?s house: I guess the French are proud of their Cockerel since it is the de facto emblem of rural France. These birds are to be heard throughout the villages of France, even at our neighbour?s houses and are accepted without question as part of the charm of this beautiful country.
The owner is of course very disappointed that you will not be coming back as a guest at the Villa. If there is anything he, or we, can do to change your mind in that regard please let us know as your custom is much appreciated.
Finally, by your own admission, since you never stayed at the neighbour?s property the owner is curious to know how you evaluated it. Indeed he cannot see what relevance there is in the comparison you make between the two properties when you consider, for example among other things, the significant difference in the weekly rates for the two properties for the same week of the year, i.e. his for 700 UK pounds against the neighbouring one for 2500 UK pounds.
