When we booked we saw the pictures and it looked great, but you always have to see it with your own eyes before you are sure that it looks like everything you expected. Well, it did and more!! We loved the place, it is so beautiful and calm and peaceful!! We really recommend ever…

No's: - the gite is not a single house but part of a tiny hamlet. The owners live next door, there are 2 other gites and some other houses. - you have just one terras, not overlooking the beautifull scenery but the parking place and (the van of) the other neighbours. You can si…

Firstly, we had the official booking from Airbnb that said there were three persons booked and when Sofie and company arrived they also brought the baby along which made four, in a gite that sleeps three people in one bedroom! I wish Sofie had read the desripction propertly. We have never had three 'single' adults book La Peruse before, it's always been either just two adults or two adults and a child and for this La Peruse is perfect as can be seen by the other reviews and the recent 'guest' award won by the same gite. To make matters more complicated, the three adults were 'singles' as well so didn't want to share the double bed!, one adult slept in the double bed with the baby. So when the male guest slept in the single sofa bed, he was uncomfortable! When they arrived, the other adult (the sister) asked if we minded if she slept in the garden as she had brought a tent and liked sleeping out under the stars! ordinarily we would have said no she couldn't as there are other guests to consider, after all, this is not a camp site!!, but in this case we relented because of the 'unusual' sleeping arrangements!. We offered to add an additional double mattress on the floor upstairs out of the kindness of our hearts and according to everyone, they couldn't have been happier!...The sister, when not sleeping in the garden decided she would sleep on the sofa in the lounge which again we reluctantly agreed to (turned a blind eye to), in order to try and accomodate things!...the four of them made full use of the shared pool, using it every day and 90% of the time had the place completely to themselves (as is the norm here). The beautiful gardens and pool area are completed accessible from the gites but not right outside the front door! they are behind the gite and because of that, completely private with wonderful views. I'm glad Sofie and company enjoyed their stay, they certainly said that they did. We do try and accomodate every request and every type of situation, but I do feel they booked the wrong gite for their 'circumstances' Next time maybe book a gite with a seperate bedroom that accomodates at least four people, with several single or double beds, life would be easier for everyone. It would also be much fairer on what is a beautiful and much loved rustic gite. Sometime, you just can't please everyone, no matter how hard you try.

While Tevor and Ugne are good hosts(friendly, tips on places to visit) - The description for La Peruse needs to be updated to adequately reflect the property. We informed both the host and Airbnb of the discrepancy. A) This is not a standalone rental - The rental is part of a c…

As you can see by all our other reviews, the gite is very well liked and is in fact a recent award winner. Our other guests love the open garden, the lovely views and the bbq area and privacy has never been a problem. My wife and I are fastidious when it comes to clenliness and check all our gites when guests leave (as you should) and have never had an issue. We do an inventory before all guests arrive and one when they leave and so when my wife pointed out that there was some cutlery missing, Mary unfortunately clearly took exception to this when there was no need. We didnt ask them to pay for the losses or replace the spoons, we just pointed it out. Normally, guests leave the gites in a lovely clean condition but unfortunately, on this occasion, that wasn't the case. The old addage 'you can't please all the people all the time' comes to mind and although my wife and I do all we can to exsure our guests stays are a pleasant as can be, sometimes you just can't do enough. I wish mary and her family well and would just suggest that next time they book somewhere they read the details carefully before booking.
