“Great for a break from it all”

Reviewed 28 Dec 2011

We visited Maison du Puits with friends for a break from it all, and got just what we needed. We found there to be plenty of room for all of us to enjoy our holiday without getting in each others way and particularly liked the large kitchen (and the large bath!). The house has lots of character which is great if you like older properties like we do. We thought we might miss out on a few things by visiting so early in the year, but we were very pleasantly surprised by the weather - sunshine nearly every day - lovely. We found there to be plenty of lovely restaurants to visit a short drive away. The one that we walked to in the village was a liitle quiet, but good food. We really enjoyed the markets too - worth getting up early for. Thanks to Tim and Lucy and their caretakers for a lovely stay, and also for the bottle of wine on arrival - much appreciated after a long journey! Mel

Owner's reply: Thanks for your kind comments Kind Regards Tim

“Large home from home”

Reviewed 4 Dec 2011

We had a superb time in Maison Du Puits, our first visit to France as a family. We are (or were) package holiday people but decided to give the “quick hop over the channel” in our brand new car (complete with roof racks) a try and are very pleased we did. The kids had everything with them, including Toms favourite Elephant (not full size!!) The house is lovely and rustic, very comfortable for us, we even had a bedroom free because Tom and Anna just “had to have” to large bedroom together – really sweet. The pool is in full sun all day and lovely although we hadn’t realised it was shared until we got there so be aware of that. It is shared with the little housse at the back but that only sleeps 2 so its fine. I loved the bath and the massive kitchen and Rodger loved the big TV! Typical! The restaurant in the village is pretty average but good value and something to fall back on. We ate out several times in other villages a short drive away and LOVED La Rochelle, an absolute highlight, you have to visit “Les Quatre Sergant” It is honestly the most magical place we have been, a double height atrium with trees lit up inside, so theatrical! yes it was a fortune but we didn’t care!!

Owner's reply: Hi We are glad we have "converted you"!!! You are welcome anytime. Kind Regards Tim

“A wonderful house”

Reviewed 26 Nov 2011

This is our second visit to Maison Du Puits and it didn’t disappoint again! This time we took the upgrade and rented Le Petit Logis at the same time so we could bring Jane’s Mum and Dad. Well it worked out perfectly as they are early to bed early to rise type people so they had their own space in the morning and the evening and joined us on day trips and for dinner most nights. It was also great for the pool with it being tucked round the back, nice and handy for that cool beer!! The weather was glorious for the whole time except one day when there was a storm but the kids loved that! I would recommend this house for a family who want to have a nice big chunky property with all the comforts from home like a dishwasher, washing machine, big tv with English channels etc, and choose to share the pool with only a couple right round the back and out of the way or do what we did and take it all privately. We had a wonderful holiday and will be back!!

Owner's reply: Hi Matt Thanks for your kind review, we are really pleased you had a nice time with your family and that the kids enjoyed that storm!! You are all welcome back any time. Have a good Christmas Tim

“rustic ? amature renovation more like”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2011

This owner shows this house as two properties one in La Rochelle and then in St Jean de Angley property number 72974 and 20413 ?? whichever it is it still has an old caravan dumped at the side of the pool along with the buiding rubbish, the decking to the pool is a danger to adults for children madness, you cant have different thicknesses of timber you trip over joints, as to the walls around pool these are at the point of collapsing A REAL DANGER, The photos are no reflection on this property now it is a very poor renovation and quite dirty, I asked for second clean this cost 30 Euros just for two bathrooms For it does not have 3 as stated Our bed in particular was disgusting it had been soiled and covered by mattress cover, I had to buy another so that my wife did not see it, otherwise things would have hit the fan and our holiday terminated, with 4 adult children and 2 grandchildren with us I had to keep things very quiet, but not a nice 14 nights in that bed I could go on but take note of all problems and get caretaker to sign if not say goodbye to part of your deposit

Owner's reply: Firstly we would like to thank this guest for bringing his issues to our attention. However, we do feel that this review is unfair and so would like to respond to it as follows. We have 2 houses to let, the main house which is a 3 bedroom property, and also a 1 bedroom gite to the rear of this main house. We advertise the main house on its own on one advert, and then also the main house with the gite included as extra accommodation on a separate advert, hence the 3rd bathroom on one of the adverts. The two different town names given are simply because the property is relatively close to both and we happen to have picked one for one advert and one for the other. Our guest has failed to understand this. Yes, our own caravan is stored on the property, and there are some stones piled up, but both are in the very corner of the parking area and not in fact next to the pool. The pool is its own separate walled area. It is true to say that the decking has been repaired in places and we take on board the guest's comments about this. We will be replacing the decking with hard standing for the 2012 season. A few stones have come loose from the wall. This has happened late in the season. However, we feel that it is an exaggeration to say that they are at the point of collapsing. Again, we will be making the necessary repairs in spring 2012. We would like to apologise to our guest for these problems and thank him for bringing them to our attention. The guest has commented that our photographs of the property are no longer a fair representation but we can say that the majority of them were taken only in 2010, and so this is not the case. The guest's opinion that the standard of the renovation is amateur is subjective and we have had many comments to the contrary. The "second clean" that the guest refers to, was in fact a mid-stay clean especially requested by them when booking, and not a second clean due to the property being found dirty. The customer also requested a mid stay linen change when booking. The mid stay linen was provided and the customer then asked for the beds to be made up for them. The 30 Euro charge that the guest has mentioned was to cover his mid-stay clean and also the caretaker time taken to make up the beds as requested. We spend approximately £200 per week on cleaning, gardening and maintenance which we feel demonstrates our commitment to keeping the property pleasant for people. With regards to the guest feeling it necessary to buy an additional mattress cover, we would like to point out that we feel that this was not required and that perhaps they were being slightly paranoid, but it is of course regrettable that this is how they felt. We visited the house ourselves only a few days after this guest left and having seen the mattress at first hand we strongly disagree that the mattress was 'soiled'. Admittedly, there were some wear marks on it, but this cannot be described as soiling and to do so is inaccurate. The mattress covers are there to prevent soiling and not to cover it up. However, now that we have been informed that this has caused a problem to a guest, we will of course be replacing the mattress before the next guests arrive. This guest informed both us and our caretakers that he is more used to staying in hotels and being waited on, which is in itself of course no problem, however we have been told that he was, to say the least rude and demanding. Perhaps we could respectfully suggest that self catering holidays are not really for him. We retained a small amount out of this guest's damages deposit for a broken pool net that the guest agreed to be charged for at the time when our caretakers spoke to him about it, but is now disputing. It is made clear to all guests in our terms and conditions that they sign when booking that damages and breakages are chargeable at the discretion of the owners and that in the event that the owners are not present for the inspection of the property the caretakers will inform the owners of damages/breakages found. However, despite this, we have since decided to reimburse this guest for the deduction as a gesture of good will. We would finally also like to comment that we have had many happy guests in the past and so we are very surprised by this review.

“Splendid holiday”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2011

Loveley caracterful house, 2 nice bottles of wine waiting for us, Kath was great and house was spotless. We loved La Rochelle and we had wall to wall sunshine all week. Its the perfect spot for us, only 4 hours from the ferry port. Pool was fantastic, nice and private in its own walled garden near the other cottage. A few more flowers in the garden would have been nice but hey ho thats the only neg I can think of, A holiday we will never forget.
