Our Guest Reviews

Villa GeresRecommended by 100% of our customers (2 reviews)
Average rating7.6/10


Panorama exceptionnel, très bonne orientation par rapport au soleil. Maison très spacieuse, bien équipée. Endroit calme (sauf chiens).
Grands lits avec bonne literie.

Amaya, notre contact référent chez Villanovo a été très serviable et réactive.
- Présence de chiens dans le voisinage (chenil probablement) proche qui aboient énormément, en particulier la nuit... Pas évident de dormir fenêtre ouverte

Manque d'entretien, c'est dommage :
- De très nombreux éclairages ne fonctionnent pas (n/mail du 19/08). Nous avons bien compris qu'il y avait eu un problème électrique mais ce n'est pas normal que vous attendiez la fin de la saison pour changer les ampoules grillées, il ne fait pas très clair dans la maison le soir...
- Le seul éclairage disponible au-dessus de la table à manger, sorte de lampadaire à pied, est desserré de la base, il penche dangereusement... Il faudrait le revisser par en-dessous j'imagine.
- Le robinet de la cuisine est tout desserré, quand on tourne le bec, tout l'ensemble tourne
- la poubelle sous l'évier tombe vers nous quand nous la tirons pour jeter quelque chose dedans. Il suffirait de fixer le support solidement avec de longues vis au fond du meuble.
- Plusieurs stores à lamelles sont défectueux
- De nombreuses vis dépassent du parquet autour de la piscine, elles tournent dans le vide et remontent. Impossible de marcher pieds nus sans prendre de risque !
- Voiture indispensable
L’espace extérieur avec la piscine et la vue sur la montagne et le lac
Pas de climatisation, impossible de dormir les fenêtres ouvertes à cause de l’aboue incessants de chiens voisins.
