A most enjoyable stay at this lovely little apartment in Perigueux. We were met by Maria and her charming daughter on arrival who explained everything we needed to know in detail. It was a very easy stay even though we booked just the night before. The apartment is very well appointed for such a small space and so was very comfortable.
We did find the loft bed a little difficult and I would hesitate to book this if there is any issue with mobility or co-ordination. The ladder is a little difficult at 3am! But if you are mobile it is very comfortable once you are up there!
Great location in town as well, with lots of interesting places to walk to and nice restaurants/cafes and local markets. Everything is closed on Sunday but I think that is true for everything in France anyway! We still managed to find places to eat. It is a beautiful area to drive around of course as well.
We were happy enough to clean the apartment but you can pay extra for a cleaner if you wish.
Overall we really enjoyed our short stay here.
Response from Maria Josefina:
Thank you very much Charmaine!! I hope you returned home safely. Kind regards, Maria J
Maria and her great family are so kind and nice. It was a pleasure to host them in our house. They are really precise, they clean all the apartment before they left, and it wasn't request. Communication and the overall feeling with them was perfect. I hope to see them again or visit them in they fantastic house in France.
Hosting Josefina has been an honor and a wonderful experience.
She is a classy lady, kind, smart and nice.
Josefina is more than a perfect guest, she someone I want as friend ad I wish could stay in Rome.
Communicating with her was easy and fun. Meeting was so good. She has lived in many countries and can tell stories from all over the World. She has a wide culture. I learned much spending time time with Josefina and her children. She is interested in Rome's history , culture and beauty. It was a great pleasure to guide her through my city Roma and discover with her more facts and details.
She is also a great Airbnb host and I received good advice from her, to become a better host myself.
Our apartment was as perfect at end of her stay as at the beginning.
I actually miss Josefina now that she is gone, and I hope to be soon her Airbnb guest in her marvelous estate in France.
Response from Maria Josefina:
As I told you before, I will go with my 2 friends from university soon, and we would love to stay in your perfect apartment. We'll keep in touch! Auguri e grazie mille!!!!! Maria Josefina
Aucun reproche à faire,Maria est une personne très agréable avec qui la discussion est facile à établir ainsi qu'avec son fils, quand à ses petits chiens je me suis même demandé si ils étaient là tellement ils étaient discrets. L'on peut accueillir Maria et ses petits chiens sans aucune appréhension.
Maria is a friendly guest. Easy to communicate with. She is very clean and tidy. I would definitely welcome her back.
A perfect getaway to enjoy a relaxing yet exciting vacation. María Josefina and her family offer a wonderful accomodation in their gite. The space has been designed by her to provide the maximum comfort in a beautiful setting. Her attention to details made our vacation marvelous: From the furniture, the very modern kitchen and appliances, the state-of-the-art bathrooms, the lovely gardens which we thoroughly enjoyed, along with the refreshing pool. She knows the area quite well and her recommendations as to restaurants, sighseeing, shops, and others were simply invaluable. Our family will never forget this vacation! We fully recommend Maria's place. And yes, we did get our free concert!
María Josefina is a very reliable person, highly responsible, organized and an outstanding host. Being an artist makes her a creative, sensitive and a cultivated person with an excellent taste.
If you want to stay in rustic France and have the amenities of modern living, Maria's home is the perfect blend of both worlds. The renovated farm structures maintain their natural beauty while the internal updates keep you comfy. Maria is also a wonderful host whose multi-talents can be seen through-out the farm. Perfect gardens, inviting swimming pool,castles in the countryside, and a wonderful family. Don't forget to ask for a concert from the proprieter.
I know any stay here is a grand one!
