Stayed Saturday 30 July 2005
Lovely villa. Swimming pool - was disappointing. The owners had not got the chlorine treatment correct and green algae persisted. They were aware of the problem and had organised an engineer to come on the day of our departure. Had to pay for linen - which we thought rather expensive on top of £1850 for the villa. Would have had to pay for cleaning @ 200 euros - so we did it ourselves. No damage caused by our rental - so I hope that Villarenters can refund our £2000 before Master Card statement. £2000 - rather excessive. However, we had a lovely holiday and no complaints to worry about. The villa is just outside Rigarda - directions would have been helpful!!!!!!!!!!!!
Owner reply:

I have the right chlorine treatment! The pb was : these renters called me to inform me about the unclear water (as they were warned by the rental agreement they signed) so that I can go to the house to make corrections; but they told me it was not necessary as they did not use the pool! In fact, I only noticed the serious deterioration the day of their departure (they even did not wait for me leaving the house open with a two-word written message!)Next clients suffered a lot of this act of negligence because they could not swim during several days (this was the important damage they caused during their rental). Fortunately, they had a 3-week stay and the water became crystalline again and they were delighted with their holidays at MAS MONTEBELLO.Concerning directions, they seem to be correct as any renters did never lose their way to get to the house. Moreover, they can get a map in addition to the written text shown on "villarenters".Concerning linen and cleaning, I do not include them in the rental price as some visitors do not need them so the price is lower.Further to the price they found expensive, please note that the house is for 10 persons (not only 2) and includes site fees as well as its belonging to GITES DE FRANCE (5 stars, 4 "epis"), a French national guarantee of quality for this luxury house.I must add for other potential clients that I have been renting MAS MONTEBELLO since 2000 and this is the only negative point I ever had (they say "lovely villa with swimming pool was disappointed", I say "these paricular renters were disappointed"). My renting book only contains very nice message of people (many UK visitors also!) who spent enchanting times inf this stoned farm, with its quiet surroundings, panoramic views and sun all the year.

An excellent villa. Comfortable, fantastic location, overlooking the picturesque hamlet of Rigarda, a brisk walk from amenities, but a short drive from so much activity, we didnt know what to do next.

More than perfect for our stay. Breakfast and dinner on the terrace with the sun facing Canigou. Old house with a comfortable and well laid out and stepped on several levels. Super welcoming from I. who is a very very good cooker... Accommodation in the heart of the tourist area of very high quality (Mosset Castelnou, Ens, Ille sur Tet and its organs, Serrabone Priory, Abbey of St Michel de Cuxa Prades, Villefranche de Conflent Vernet les Bains, Abbey St Martin Canigou.) should also come back with snow on the Canigou ...
