The house, which contains two apartments, has been very nicely restored, the fittings and appliances are fine and the views are lovely. It is however very remote – on the edge of a small village with no amenities and the nearest shops are a good 15 minutes away by car. Indeed, to reach the house and get anywhere, a car is essential. The complimentary case of wine was appreciated but we would have been happier if there had been toilet paper, washing-up liquid, and more than two reasonably sized mugs. There was comfortable seating for only three people and the bedroom furniture could not have been more basic. The boiler was temperamental, resulting in unexpectedly cold showers, and when it did fire, the external vent sent fumes up though the open bathroom window. There was a random selec tion of leaflets and brochures but no information pack to help with settling in and finding local shops, restaurants etc. Bottom line: OK as a base for touring but the place is let down by a lack of attention to important detail.
