Response from Keith:
I don't understand this review. Before leaving the gite we washed the dishes, bagged up our trash and swept the floors, and at our final check of the house it looked as clean as it had been when we arrived. If there was any additional mess (I'd be interested to hear specifics) I can only apologise, but I wonder if this poor review wasn't in response to my own comments about the lack of hot water.
In any case we enjoyed our stay in your gite, and I wish you the best.
