The luxury chalet near Mont Sant Michel was exactly as described. We have been very well welcomed by Phil, who is a great host. I surely recommend this house for the very convenient location between Normandy and Brittany and the quiet position in the country. At arrival we found a perfectly equipped house whose refrigerator was also filled with food and beverage (in fact, in case of late arrival, we would not have been required to buy any food for breakfast)
I'm surprised to read that all previous guests were happy about this place.
We hired this place for 5 days and we really had a bad experience.
The price of the Chalet is situated in the upper range, which means that you might also expect an upper range service. This is absolutely not the case; the chalet has some serious problems and the landlord does not keep his promises at all.
Before we hired this "luxury" chalet, we had some written contacts with the landlord and we especially asked for WIFI access and the possibility to eat outside. The landlord also promised us a special price.
Non of those promises have been kept.
On arrival, the wife of the landlord told us that the shower was broken the day before (afterwards I also found a review on Tripadvisor of the people before us ... there were already problems). It was also the only time we saw some of the owners. During our stay, there was a terrible odeur in the bathroom and hall, making it not an amusing stay for our children who had to sleep below. The shower was unusable during our stay, we were obliged to wash ourselves in the bathroom above, with only one small bad.
Also there was no WIFI (which is indicated and also especially confirmed). The landlady said that the signal was weak but in fact there is no signal at all. According to the Lady, the signal should be stronger at her house. In my opinion, it's not fair to announce that there is Internet if in reality you have to go outside, walk about 100 meters and try to "catch" some WIFI. In reality, we only succeeded once to connect but at such a slow speed that not even mails will arrive. (and we tried it with a MacBook).
Also the chalet was not clean; some drawers were really dirty, the juicer for instance was unclean, dust everywhere ...
All those together (the high price, the promises, the wrong information , the broken shower, ...) and especially the terrible odeur on the first floor (below) made me feel ripped off.
At least the owner is consistent in non keeping his promises. I wrote him an email and besides a promise that he will answer me, I never heard anything from him again.
Even if all the issues would be solved in the chalet (shower, odeur), the price would still be totally overrated. It's a normal chalet, not worth to pay the price of 230 € a day.
We lodged at the "Maison Bois de Prestige" on the 8th of August 2014. The cottage is nice and comfortable, in a quiet area, but the overall experience was below our expectations.
- There is NO WiFi access, even if the description said there was. We were told to get wifi access near the farm close to the cottage, which was completely unpratical as it was raining too.
- There was a water leak, we had to take turns showering and had to close the water during night, which made the toilets not accessible.
- There was a strong continuous noise in the top floor bedroom, just near the ceiling. It was hard to fall asleep with that in your ears.
- We continuously tried to contact the owner about these issues, but he was unreachable. Instead of the owner, a young girl gave us the keys and disappeared immediately after letting us know of the water problem.
The rooms are clean and tidy. You can enjoy the beautiful sunset in the backyard. The location is excellent, just one mile drive to the village and 10 km to saint Michelle, and there are lot of restaurants nearby. we met some problem using the shower and the oven. But I am sure it will not be a problem for the next group.
The Luxury Chalet Nr Mont Saint Michel is everything you want for vacation. Great hosts, beautiful scenery and luxury accommodations. We truly enjoyed our time there and would love to return.
Mont Saint Michel was our third stop in Normandy. GPS found the small village of Ville Chérel easily and you must remember number 14. At first you see Phil and Andrea's home which is a very old village house, then the barn, and if you like animals you may want to stay there forever!!! Getting to the chalet is like going into a storytale home surrounded by a very big yard. It is very secluded and yet not at all. The challet itself is big, modern and very well aquipped.The kitchen has it all... We felt so much at home that we even decided to go to the nearest supermarket ( which is huge and two minutes away) and buy some things for dinner and have a nice meal at "home" instead of going to another restaurant.
Andrea greeted us very warmly and answered all our questions and more.. The fridge was filled with beer, soft drinks, milk, butter, cheese , ham...everything one needs for a good breakfast and sandwiches.
We found the place very clean , comfortable beds,nice shower.
The two rooms are very comfortable but not sound proof- to say the least... If you are very tall people you have to be careful in the upstairs bathroom. You could have a bath but only sitting down.
Andrea suggested we drove to Le mont saint Michel in the afternoon when it is less crowded. It was a very short drive ( about 10 min) to the parking area.And yes it was not as crowded as we expected.
On the whole I must say that Phil and Andrea are very nice hosts, lovely people and did as much as they could to make our stay very enjoyable. Phil answers e-mails promptly and he went out of his way and gave us time to decide about the chalet untill we made sure that our time schedule fitted.The couple that was with us loved the place as well and was very sorry to leave after only one day.
There are two things I would suggest to improve: I would add a blow dryer so that us women could have our hair done properly.The challet has no wifi reception so definitely it has to be strengthened so that one would not have to sit outside by Phil's home to connect.
Thank you Andrea and Phil we would surely consider comming back on our next trip to Bretagne ( Brittany).
