(09-2018) Dear Lydia and Thijs,
Thank you for a fantastic holiday with FranceVilla,
we had a great time.
Everything was in order when we left the villa.
The standard of this holiday villa was excellent, the highest quality of equipment and the salt water pool had the most efficient and quietest filtration equipment we’ve ever had. The hosts had the villa spotless and welcomed us with homemade foie gras and wine. The location was 15 minutes out of Montignac and close to many points of interest yet it was so calm and peaceful on top of the hill we can recommend it for a truly relaxing holiday.
Our stay at Belle Vue is hard to beat! What a spectacular view! The house is fully equipped. Compliments to Alain and his wife! We give a nine on all fronts!
(09-2015) Hi Lydia,
Apologies for the late reply.
We thought Belle Vue was an amazing house, beautifully clean, the weather was not so good unfortunately!
Just one thing we would like to recommend:
As you are aware we had difficulty with the handover as the owners did not speak any English and our French was very basic. This is not the owners problem and we were embarrassed about this. But when we stayed at Poujole, the owners also did not speak much English. But they had put together a small list in English that told us basic information like:
- Where the bins were located.
- Times we had to be out of the house.
- What we needed to do with the sheets - they asked we take them off and leave in the bedroom.
- The nearest shop
- Any other info... for example at Poujole, they asked us to make sure the floors were brushed before leaving.
Also - on Saturday morning Julian went out to take the rubbish to the bins and there was some kind of shoot happening. He was warned and asked to move out of the way quickly. I'm not sure if this is a regular Saturday thing that visitors should be made aware of?
We think this would be really helpful for future guests.
We would be very happy to give a good reference for the house, if you would like to send us a link?
Thank you again for your help, we will be back in touch for future holidays.
