“The Perfect Christmas”
Reviewed 22 February 2014 for a stay in December 2013

person found this review helpful

We stayed at the wonderful French home Christmas 2013. We have 5 children and took the grandparents including great granny so the age group was 1 to 91. We had the best time! The house has lots of space and the children kept occupied in the top floor which had bundles of toys and games. Tim and Meryl made us feel extremely welcome even before we arrived, by arranging a turkey and Christmas tree completely going the extra mile for us. The kitchen was fantastic and was well equipped to cook our Christmas lunch. Beds were extremely comfortable too. Great location and beautiful village with friendly village shop and tourist attractions close by. It was an easy 2 hour drive to Disney. Will definitely return here when we next visit France. Thanks to Tim and Meryl who made our stay very special.

We all fell in love with the place - it far exceeded our expectations. Beautiful building, beautifully furnished...

Our weekend there was lovely but too short and we will definitely be back. We've stayed in a few places in France but this one tops them all - very elegant, yet still relaxing and comfortable.

“Excellent House, but got ripped off”
Reviewed 7 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

person found this review helpful

There's no doubt that Les Hortensias is a wonderful holiday home, big, light and airy, with a friendly village shop, access to a lengthy off-road cycle track and a football court in the village where the kids could hang out with the locals in the evening. The Jeanes and McCrindle families enjoyed a great 2 weeks there.

Whole experience was soured by the owner stiffing us for the £300 damage deposit on the basis that we'd burned a kitchen worktop, something that we didn't do, and we would have noticed as you naturally wipe down the worktops before you leave. So by all means go there for a great holiday, just expect to pay 15% more than the asking price!

Management Response

This review and the one before it are from the same party - 2 families staying for 2 weeks in summer. They had a lovely holiday but unfortunately damage was done to the side of the kitchen work surface. The burn may have happened on the morning they were leaving, which would explain why they didn't notice it. They were sent a photo and it was slow in arriving due to logistical difficulties, the guests were kept informed of this so perhaps it came after the review was posted. We welcome constructive feedback and have fixed the door handle! Unfortunately accidents can happen, which is why people take deposits. It is very rare that we have had to retain any deposit and never has it been for more than a few pounds or with any disagreement, so this is a first for us. We like our guests to be happy and have a great experience in our dear old house, she needs to be loved and have joy and laughter ringing through her. We are sorry that these particular guests had their happy memory a little tarnished but hope that they will understand.
