We have had vacations in half a dozen or more rented accommodation, normally on a self-catering basis, and after thirty years of two or three foreign visits a year, and four or five in each of the last six years, we have become tolerably adept at sussing out the good properties. This one was abundantly what we sought.
Thus, it was quiet, beautifully clean, well furnished, with excellent beds, abundant hot water, splendidly equipped in the kitchen, and fully dark
at night. The addition of the requested duvets was most welcome, and air-conditioning room-by-room was a treasure we don't meet often!
The location could not have been bettered. We even managed the TV, though the oven foxed us at times!
The things we missed may reflect that we were unusual in actually catering for ourselves foil, herbs, a knife-sharpener, a third tea-towel,
and, amongst good cleaning materials, a duster! The only damage we inflicted, to our knowledge, was when we tried to make a daube
in the big blue casserole and melted the knob on the lid - sorry! A lidded glass or pottery casserole for use in the oven would have been
most helpful. But these really are minutiae. Perhaps the absence of a shelf (for toiletries)in the shower room, and for soap etc in the shower
itself, but it's a very good shower. The only comment we would make that comes remotely near the status of a complaint concerns the lighting in the sitting room, more especially lighting to read by.
But we really did feel we had outstanding value for money and then some.
With every good wish and many thanks - John & Norma.
