“Comfortable villa with most amenities”

Stayed here with my partner for two weeks in mid-June. The villa is a family home and furnished as such with letting periods when not in use by the family. The bedrooms comprise one double, one twin and one bunk bedded room. The villa was ample for our needs with a large lounge, a Salle d'Ete, and an Abri. The main bedroom was a decent size and complete with an ensuite bath and a separate shower. The bed was large and comfortable. The lounge had comfortable seating, a 32" TV (though French channels only) with a DVD player, good sized dinner table and a selection of books and DVDs(the latter mainly French). The washing machine was in a large attached garage which had plenty of space for drying clothes if the weather was inclement, otherwise there was a washing line outside. The dishwasher was brand new and very quick. There is a large fridge freezer. The kitchen is relatively small but was adequate for our needs.
The villa has some rather dated features (kitchen cupboards, ceramic fittings in bathrooms and toilets) but they all worked fine.
Two features in particular were a Godsend, the insect meshes on all the windows and lounge doors and the air conditioning in the main bedroom. The latter was essential for the first week of our stay when daytime temperatures reached 96F only falling to 72-3F by midnight. An hour of the aircon on cool made the bedroom a blissful haven for the whole night. In the second week with cooler weather this wasn't necessary.
The swimming pool was a pleasure to use, especially in the heatwave of the first week. There were no cushions supplied for the sun loungers.
The villa had good security features with electric gates and full shuttering. There was parking space for several cars.
We opted to take our own 100% cotton bed linen and were glad to have done so and to use our beach towels. The supplied house towels were IKEA standard, but some initially bore stains that we could not wash out. We did not use the supplied pillows as these were heavily stained.
The garden is fairly small for the area (we know this part of St Saturnin very well) but has some nice features. A particular pleasure was the bird life with regular sightings of a Hoopoe and Golden Orioles together with the ubiquitous Jays.

Dear guests, thank you for a very thorough review. We do strive to provide a property as comfortable and functional as possible, in spite of our living abroad. I would just like to respond to a couple of comments, to give an updated or clearer picture, if I may. New pillows have now been purchased and fitted with new protections as well, and we apologize for this oversight. The old ones were bought six years ago, and due for a change. Thank you for pointing this out to us. As for the size of the garden, the property is 1900 square meters, as advertised. Again, thank you for choosing La Roc' Bruyère for your holidays, and we wish you all the best. Kindest regards, Katia Saint-Lôt
