This is a false and unfair review that is damaging to our business and goes against any comments your party made whilst holidaying here in La Maison Bleue.
I can only apologies if you didn't receive the directions that I attach to all guest emails, I do not remember any mention on your arrival that you struggled to find us and did not receive the directions. As well as directions we also give out our telephone number in the case of getting lost. If there is anything more I can do than this please do let me know.
The TV was a temporary TV as our new TV had to go back to be repaired. Myself and my son came to see you and try to fix the problem, I offered you another TV which you declined saying "it wasn't a problem, we don't need to watch TV we can play games"
We clearly advertise 'shared pool'. As we are out at work the pool is used by guests more than ourselves. To say the pool was taken over by teenage son is an amplified comment. Very occasionally our Son does use the pool with friends but it is usual for him to only go down when guests are out. I do remember him using the pool with friends whilst we were all down there but definitely for no more than ONE hour! To spend a day down there or even a whole afternoon is unheard of! .If I remember rightly they were playing volley ball and you were laughing, hey, you are on holiday why not join in?
We do our utmost best in making sure our guests are comfortable and having a well-deserved holiday, this is why we offered you an extra room and bathroom to your large party for 100.00 € for the two weeks, you were absolutely delighted with this offer as it was a big help in making your stay more comfortable. We also helped you with phone calls when your car broke down, as a thank you; you very kindly gave us a bottle of wine at the end of your holiday.
As for 'tatty presentation’ I do remember one of your members saying" this is the best gite I have stayed in in France" and in our guest book another member of your party has written 'Lovely place to stay for my first visit to the Vendee'
I can only think the reasoning behind this review is that I had to charge you for cleaning. It clearly states in the gite to leave the gite clean and tidy and that there would be a charge if it is not. Unfortunately the gite wasn't left clean which meant I had to ask for extra help so as I could have the gite ready for our next guests arrival. I did send you an apology to have to do this and did not charge you the full 60 €
It is very sad that you felt you had to discredit us in this way when you clearly had an enjoyable and comfortable holiday. I do hope this review without its constructive criticism is not in any way defamatory to our small business.
