Not as described
This is an extract from a letter I have sent to the property owner:
This family holiday, with some members coming from as far away at New Zealand, had been planned well in advance and much anticipated.
The blocked drains, which we reported to you on the first night we arrived, meant that we could not use the sinks (both upstairs and downstairs), shower and dishwashers in that side of the property. The lack of useable dishwashers meant that valuable time was spent washing up by hand when we should have been relaxing and enjoying our holiday. The inability to use the shower in that half of the property meant that all nine of us had to share a single shower. As I said at the time, this is just not acceptable.
While you did make some efforts to try to fix the drains, the problem remained for the entirety of our stay.
This major problem also overshadowed some ‘smaller’ issues, which we didn’t even mention at the time, including an oven that would not go above 150degC and that the toilet above the kitchen which smelt badly of urine and clearly hadn’t been cleaned properly.
we are ashamed you had this experience. Everything is solved.
Perfect for families- beautiful and comfortable home in a great location
Our family of five (including three boys ages 15, 13, and 9) rented this house for 12 days in June and had a wonderful stay. At the beginning of our trip, the weather was nice and hot, so we were able to enjoy the pool and the large garden. But even when the weather was more Norman, we loved returning to the house after our many day trips as it was comfortable, well provisioned, and conveniently located to a couple of small towns nearby with markets, shops, etc. We'd highly recommend this gorgeous and charming house for large families wishing to visit Normandy and explore its countless attractions.
THANKS A LOT to Arnaud Michel party for being wonderfull guest. Our housekeeper was happy to welcome this family. All their members are welcome at any time. Ségolène and Serge
Beautiful home in a lovely setting.
We spent a delightful week with extended family. Plenty for everyone from the youngest (aged 10) to the oldest (aged 74). The pool was much enjoyed. Many attractions within reach including William the Conqueror's castle at Falaise, the Bayeux Tapestry, and the beaches of the Normandy landings. A once in a lifetime trip for the older parents from America.
Space and time to relax in perfect Normandy air
The house and garden are huge. The rooms are lovely and big, the beds fantastically comfortable. The local village is very quiet but Potigny - 10 mins drive - has all you need. Falaise is near, the coast easily reachable.
Hello Nick, we were so happy to rent to your party for a second time. Do not hesitate to come back again. we made improvement since then. best regards. Ségolène
We had a fantastic stay in this beautifully kept Presbytery. The house is situated on the edge of a very small village and was very quiet. It was the perfect location to while away a week in France, although could have easily spent 3 or 4 weeks here. The photos on this site do not do it justice.
The owners were away on holiday whilst we were there but it was no problem. We had contact using WhatsApp and they also provided a mobile number if required. There was also someone local if we needed anything but we did not have to contact them.
We arrived with the extended family (3 couples, 1 adult and 3 children) and the whole house gave us room to enjoy a week together. The pool was great to keep the children entertained when we were at the house and there was enough seating areas so that we could spread out if we wanted to but we did spend a lot of time together in the kitchen which is a wonderful mixture of old and new. Everything was there that you would expect in your own home.
There are a number of good restaurants in Falaise (about 5 Km away) and in other towns nearby (although we did not try them). I would recommend La Bonne Raison in Falaise which has superb home cooked food.
It is easy from here to visit all the main attractions in Normandy, Bayeux Tapestry, D-Day Beaches etc...
I would recommend this property to anyone. It was a great place to have a holiday.
Hi Diederick, I am really happy you enjoyed your stay at home. Thanks for taking care of it. You are welcome at any time. Ségolène
Amazing family holiday home
We really enjoyed our holiday at Olendon. The house is great for a large group with children. The children loved sharing the attic room and the house is full of character and style and is very well equipped. All of the beds are very comfy. The garden is vast and we spent a few days of our holiday not leaving the garden once as the children were so happy there. The swimming pool is beautiful and gets the sun all day and has a very sophisticated and secure safety cover on it to give peace of mind with the children when you are not using the pool. There is a huge trampoline within the grounds as well as swings and a table tennis table. The owner was very helpful when we were preparing for the holiday and during our holiday, answering any questions that we had.
The house is located in a small village, 10 minute drive from Falaise. There are no amenities within the village of Olendon but Falaise is a lovely town with all that you would need there in terms of local amenities. The castle in Falaise (William the Conqueror) is a fantastic trip for adults and kids.
We would highly recommend this villa to any large group of people.
my husband and I really appreciated your party. It was a pleasure sharing our house with you. You are welcome at anytime or in Paris as we rent our appartement near Champs-Elysées for 5 persons. Ségolène and Serge
