Ideally situated, warm and compact

  • 3 of 5

Property within walking distance of town with good bakery nearby.

Slight criticism is there is no shower curtain which means the floor was constantly wet and hard to keep clean.

No basics in there such as salt or pepper or cooking oil.

Sofa bed is quite noisy and not that comfortable.

Apart from this it is value for money.

Owner's Response: We are pleased to read from you the apartment is good value and hope to welcome you a again in Provence. Unfortunately at the time you visited us, the shower curtain was ordered but not yet installed. This will be done by mid April 2016 . We apologize for the inconvenience. Sorry for salt and pepper, but on the other hand, bed and bath linen are provided for free, as well as WIFI, closed parking space on the property, and full cleaning up at the end of the stay. It is my understanding you chose to sleep in the sofa bed and not in the king size bed in the bedroom. Sofa bed is more adapted to a child than to an adult.

Great Location and Huge Beautiful Back Garden

  • 2 of 5

I normally only give very high reviews because I go by the reviews I see before I book. Unfortunately, during our 2 week stay, we did not find this accommodation up to our expectations.

First the positive aspects:

1 Location was great for walking to the market in the town of Apt and for leaving the town to go on day trips;

2. The price was very good for what you get;

3. The back patio and wonderful garden area were superb;

and the Parking was private and very secure.

Now the negative aspects:

1.The Apartment is long and narrow with no windows except the full length window front door ;

2. The Apartment was very damp with no ventilation except by opening the front door which allowed flies and mosquitos in;

3.The only closet in the apartment at the rear, leaked water when it rained and mold was very evident;

4. The people who managed the property were very nice but spoke only english so when there was a problem with the WIFI the man did not know how to correct the problem. The lower apartment we were in used a WIFI "extender" to enhance the signal from the router located above but he did not seem to be aware of it. It worked great for 4 days then never again. If I had known where it was located a simple reboot probably would have corrected it. So if you have any problem you better speak fluent french. Our limited French was not good enough;

5. If a fire occurred and you were not in the front of the apartment it might be impossible to get out this only access/exit door;and

6. The Apartment and Patio were not very clean on our arrival. My wife and I spent the first hour cleaning the patio and apartment upper corners of dust and spider webs. The front door glass had to be cleaned both sides so we could appreciate the view of the patio and garden.

Well that's our very honest and pointed review for the time we were there.

Owner's Response: I appreciate your positive comments , and I thank you for that. Regarding the negative points , as we exchanged several e mails in english language before you came , I am really sorry you did not think about contacting me at the right beginning of your 2 week stay. Regarding troubles such as WIFI connexion, only french speaking assistance , dust …it would have been easy and a real pleasure for me to implement immediate corrective actions by translating your comments to my french speaking local representatives . Regarding the humidity issue, I wish to remind you arrived at the time when the equivalent of 2 months of torrential rain poured down on the region in just one or 2 days. All international papers related this exceptional situation that occur maybe only once in 50 years . As the house is built along a hill, the rainfall poured down all around. Now ,the situation is back to normal, the apartment is dry and appreciated by present clients who even intend to come back again. Regarding the patio , apartment and window, I apologize if they were not clean enough. The weather conditions might also be partly responsible, but in any case, extra cleaning could have been immediately performed for free if pointed out to me over the phone at the time you noticed it. Maybe the exceptional cloudy conditions also made the apartment darker than usual, but it is really the first time I receive complaints about the lack of luminosity.

Bonne adresse

  • 4 of 5

Nous l'avons choisi par rapport à sa situation dans la ville d'Apt. les descriptions sont correctes. Néanmoins l'environnement "plan de cuisson" n'était pas nette (faïence, porte couteau, déflecteur de hotte). La connexion WiFi déplorable la 1ère semaine, le week-end suivant correcte et très aléatoire la semaine suivante, gros handicap pour nous. La déco est contemporaine mais le rideau de douche fait plutôt année 50. Une amélioration peut-être amenée, avoir une armoire ou placard pour ranger nos affaires et éviter de les laisser en vrac dans les valises. Si tous ces points sont améliorés je vous conseille cette location.

Appartement tès bien situé et très belle région

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été très bien accueillis et bien conseillés tout au long de notre séjour. La location correspond tout à fait à la description. Appartement très proche du centre ville tout en étant très calme, joliment décoré, bien aménagé et propre. Situé au milieu de nombreux petits village tous plus beaux les uns que les autres.Nous avons pu profiter de la terrasse couverte agréable en arrière saison.
