Hi Ismael. We are so happy to hear that the house is just perfect for you and your family, and that you love the area. It is indeed a dream house in a fantastic location, and with so much to do and see nearby.
We have noted your maintenance concerns and feel disappointed that you have not noted this to us directly (neither during the stay nor thereafter, despite us trying to reach out to you) nor to the caretaker whilst at the property. We note, however, that some of your concerns seem magnified and down to personal preferences.
As you know, we are only now emerging from the Covid-19 pandemic that placed significant travel restrictions – both externally into France but also internally within France (to the extent that the caretaker was not allowed to visit the property for significant periods of time). Upon arriving at the property earlier this year, after an absence of 2.5 years due to these restrictions, the owners were delighted to see the maturing of the garden, and in particular the hedge at the front of the house. You may call this hedge wild, but it is designed to be so, with the rest of the garden being pruned and regularly maintained. Most of the pictures on our website were taken only last year and illustrates this, and since then, further pruning of hedges near to the terraces and flower beds, and general management of the garden, including new gravel, have taken place. It is also noted that the significant drought over the summer (with no rain since June until late August) has impacted the lawn and wider garden significantly, despite the irrigation system in place. Garden furniture has been gradually replaced in recent years, including new parasols, sun lounges (both by pool and house) and smaller tables & chairs (which again you can see from recent photos versus older photos of the property). Over the past year, significant other work has taken place at the house, including new decking near and around the pool, new winter pool cover & bespoke storage unit, internal and external repainting, new soft furnishings, as well as replacement or additional new furniture such as desks to allow working-from-home and new dining table chairs. The wifi solution has also been upgraded this Spring (2022) from the satellite solution installed in 2014. The owners note your concerns about the tiles – which relate to a handful of tiles in a larger area – but unfortunately, both the water pressure and the minor creases in the swimming pool floor are construction-related matters since the property was developed and pool installed 15+ years ago, prior to your first visit.
