We are very sorry that these guests didn't enjoy their stay. However we saw them several times whilst they were here and every time they said everything was fine and they were having a good time - if they had expressed their concerns then we would have tried to do something about it. Unfortunately the week they were here was when the fruit harvest was in full force and this year the farmer only had a few days to do this due to the unseasonal weather so it was "all hands on deck" with extra (noisy) locals drafted in. This is the first time in the 4 years we have been here that this has happened. As far as the other complaints we have not had the same from any other guests (see our other reviews) otherwise we would have done something about them. The outside area is not shared with 5 families, the terrace is shaded by a mature vine (vital in the summer heat!), the neighbours' bikes were there for just 1 hour until we noticed and asked them to move them and extra chairs with cushions have now been provided. We know that you can't please everyone all the time but if complaints had been made at the time of the stay we would have done everything possible to fix them. Again we are sorry!
