The Gite is located in a very quiet and peaceful location, about 2 miles outside the small village of Vergoncey. It is an annexe to a larger property, which is also available to rent.
Although completely functional, the property is starting to show signs of wear and tear. It clearly needs a bit of TLC which could bring it up to a beautiful and much higher standard.
We found some basic problems that could easily be rectified: No sun loungers ( even though the sun terrace basks in glorious sunshine all day ), a BBQ that was very neglected ( we had to buy a new grill to make it usable ). The Gite wasn’t particularly clean, although we know the owner is looking to change his current cleaner, so this problem may be resolved fairly swiftly. We had to clean the microwave & fridge, which you don’t expect to have to do on holiday. Also there is no Wi-fi available, which wasn’t the end of the world, but I believe it should be removed from the particulars on the Holiday Lettings website. The property could also benefit from the installation of Air Conditioning, especially in the bedrooms. During our stay, the temperature was 35 degs during the day and 26 degs during the night. I appreciate this was much higher than the average for the time of year, but Air Con would have been greatly valued.
In summary, a fantastic location and a Gite that has great potential, it just needs some love and attention to detail, especially for a rental property.
Loved this gite. Well located and well cared for inside and out. Mont St Michel super close as are many other beautiful coastal resorts.
