I booked this holiday villa Mazet des loup in Tourettes sur Loup, Vence. through www.holiday-rentals.co.uk. I based my choice on the beautiful photographs and glowing reviews the company illustrated on behalf of the owner Renee Presley.
My family arrived at the property on July16th 2011 for 2 weeks at the cost of 6,800 euros!! We found a run down property in need of complete renovation and a thorough clean. The owner’s photographs provided a misleading image of the standard of property advertised and one expected for the rental charged..
The property was tired with old furnishings, very dirty, mouse droppings in the lounge, cockroaches in one of the beds, cobwebs everywhere, no mop and bucket for floor cleaning( so the floors are very dirty), no showers in the main house ( only attachments on the bath). Broken and chipped crockery, cheap camping style cutlery, old kitchen units, woodworm in the bookshelves, filthy pool with broken sharp tiles etc. etc. We have collected photographic evidence of all our experiences.
I contacted both the owner Renee Presley and Holiday-Rentals.co.uk to ask for a fair refund, as they were completely overpricing this property which in my opinion is only 2 star rather than the 5 star rating they (personally!) give it. I wrote a review based on my experience but the company have chosen not to include it in their reviews, but instead have added one written by the owner and her guests (on the day of our departure!) who stayed there in June, once again applauding the virtues of how wonderful Mazet des Loup is.
This is false advertising and I would urge any interested parties to avoid renting this property.
