Hello and thanks for taking the time to write your review.
I am a little surprised as I saw you every day at the Resort and apart from the terrace, which as you say we had jet-washed the day after you had mentioned it, and a cd player and new coffee machine that you requested (and that we supplied immediately), you never made your feelings known whilst on-site. I feel we reacted quickly and efficiently to every request you made. I also asked numerous times whether everything was ok and even on the day of the departure you said you had enjoyed your stay. In response to your specific comments, the villa was entirely repainted in May this year and I have checked today and there is no mould, only a water stain that has come through the new paint behind the toilet. The modern-style cube gas bottles that we use only smell when they are nearing the of the bottle, so I am certain that this was not a safety issue and if you had mentioned it we would have changed the bottle for you. I will pass on your comments to the owner about the outdoor furniture, which inevitably does get worn, but all in all, the villas are well-equipped and match the description given. I have to say that for the price you paid for the number of people you had staying in it, it offers superb value for money.

"Thanks ever so much for sharing your thoughts. A quick update on the three subjects you have raised. 1) We will update the 'About the Area' section on our website. You are right that we are very rural, so it is important that we share as many good ideas as possible. We also plan to make this section a little more prominent. 2) On the restaurant front, we've had a few surprises over the past couple of years! But I am glad to say we have just appointed somebody to start full time with us, from next season. We are very excited about working with him towards new goals, but our primary target is to re-establish a consistent, good quality service, for our resident clients and members - exactly as you have mentioned. So please stay tuned.. 3) Finally our friends at Orange France. Umm. We've now had the lines externally replaced plus another new router installed. They have also carried out some technical works further up the line. Everything seems to be working fine now (albeit not city centre speeds) so we hope this continues when usage picks up again. As a precaution, we have purchased a couple of internet dongles to ensure a basic service for those in need, if ever we do have problems. But fingers double crossed, the service continues..!
Thanks again for your feedback.
