Further details indoors

Formerly an old Truffle Farm, female pigs "Truies" were used to seek out the "black gold" truffle that the Perigord is so famous for. The barn was used to house the "Truies", and the attached little barn was were they cooked up the pig food. With hundreds of kilos of truffles found each year actually on the property of Le Marronnier it is a shame that those quantities are not found anymore !

The barn with its lovely stonework retains its character with "pierre apparent" throughout the property. With the old oak beams exposed it oozes character and charm.

Response from the owner Wow..... Je dois répondre à cette critique car il est évident que les critiques négatives sont la première chose que les futurs clients lisent. Je suis désolé d'apprendre que VOUS avez été si déçu de vos vacances. Je tiens également à souligner qu'à aucun moment pendant ou après les vacances, le client qui a fait cette réservation ne m'a contacté pour me dire qu'il n'avait pas apprécié ses vacances. La personne qui a laissé cet avis est un membre de la famille qui a laissé cet avis 7 mois après ses vacances ! De plus, la réservation a été faite via un site français et non via un site lié à Tripadvisor. Plusieurs inexactitudes qui doivent être corrigées. Premièrement, vous n'êtes pas resté 15 jours ! Le temps pendant vos vacances était hors saison et atroce. Des températures de 18-19 degrés en août, c'est presque du jamais vu. Mais c'est quelque chose hors de mon contrôle. (En 2022, les températures étaient de 40 degrés !) Donc oui, je suis sûr que la piscine était un peu froide pour s'y baigner. Aucune piscine extérieure ne peut atteindre 26 degrés dans ces conditions extrêmes. Cependant, le jacuzzi à 36+ degrés était là et vous l'avez utilisé. En ce qui concerne les vieux appareils, je remplace les choses quand elles sont nécessaires, qui jette un micro-ondes parce que VOUS pensez qu'il a l'air vieux ? Quelle société gaspilleuse ce serait. On m'a envoyé un message disant que le grille-pain ne fonctionnait pas, j'en ai acheté un nouveau pour vous, même s'il y avait un deuxième grille-pain dans le cottage, et qu'il y a un grill dans le grand four. Je n'annonce pas que j'ai un sèche-linge. La porte du patio/baie vitrée n'était pas HS pendant votre séjour, êtes-vous en train de me dire que pendant tout votre séjour vous avez marché de la porte d'entrée au patio arrière tout le temps ? Une machine à café ne suffit-elle pas pour une seule propriété ? Évier de cuisine bouché - cela s'est produit le 10e jour de votre séjour. J'ai reçu un message après 21 heures et un plombier est venu le lendemain après-midi. J'ai tous les SMS qui le prouvent. Nous avons un calcaire dur dans notre région, et nous devons régulièrement détartrer les robinets/douches et les bouilloires. Donc malheureusement le calcaire apparaît régulièrement et l'aurait fait pendant votre séjour, mais n'aurait pas empêché les douches de fonctionner. "Refus de vous donner des draps propres à la fin d'une semaine", je propose des vacances en self-catering, 2 machines à laver étaient disponibles pour votre groupe, une dans chaque propriété. Je ne propose pas de “Maid Service”. Ça m'a fait sourire que vous mentionniez la note sous le matelas. Donc vous étiez en train de déplacer ou de tourner le matelas ? car c'est la seule raison pour laquelle vous auriez remarqué le papier. Dire que je n'ai jamais rencontré votre groupe lors de votre départ est un mensonge flagrant ! J'étais là plusieurs fois pendant vos vacances pour nettoyer la piscine (et apporter le nouveau grille-pain). Pas une seule fois VOUS ne m'avez abordé, mais j'ai discuté avec la personne qui a fait la réservation et le fils le jour du départ pendant que je nettoyais encore la piscine et que le reste du groupe chargeait la voiture ! Il y a toujours deux côtés à chaque histoire. Mais il est vrai que vous et moi n'avons pas eu le plaisir de nous rencontrer. Mais je suis désolé d'entendre 7 mois plus tard que VOUS n'avez pas apprécié VOS vacances. Depuis des années, j'aime entendre comment les clients ont apprécié leurs vacances. Je continuerai à offrir à tous mes clients une expérience de location de vacances de qualité et à apporter des améliorations chaque année. Nous étions complets en 2022 avec des clients heureux. (Je viens seulement de voir ce commentaire, d'où ma réponse tardive.)
