I'm french, so please excuse my english :)
We didn't have a nice welcoming from the owners.. The house was cold when we arrived, and still cold next morning.The owners warm the house at the time they want. After having a "hard"conversation, they let us manage for the heating of the house (remember : All fuel and power inc. in rent).
No curtains, and just in front of the living room is the owners's living room where they spend time looking at you !!
We definitively never go back to that place.
I just want to say that we are a french couple and we go few times a year in houses we book in uk, ireland, so on. And it is the first time we have so bad owners.
