“Disappointing”

Our group of 6 friends stayed at the Old Mill (Le Vieux Moulin) at Arles sur Tech for 2 weeks in July. The house has some wonderful features but sadly, for us, the bad outweighed the good.

Beautifully located in the Pyrenees Orientales, an area of spectacular natural beauty, the house is ideally located to explore the area. Collioure, Carcasonne, Prats de Molo, Les Gorges de la Fou, all are within a couple of hours drive or less. The beautiful river Tech runs behind the house and there is a swimming hole just a few minutes walk away. The house is very large: the upstairs lounge is lovely and leads out onto a terrace with a wonderful view to the mountain behind the house. The two bedrooms on the third floor are spacious and share the family bathroom which is simple but clean and spacious. 

Unfortunately the rest of the house didn't live up to our expectations (and a valuable lesson was learned about renting a holiday house about which there are no online reviews). The bedrooms and bathrooms on the second floor are pretty ordinary, the ground floor kitchen, lounge and dining area are dark and airless. The whole house smells strongly of damp, although the large bedroom on the fourth floor is stiflingly hot as the windows leading onto the crumbing balcony cannot be opened. We were never able to get the rather complicated TV set up to work.  Most disappointing was that when we arrived the kitchen was not clean. We had to wash every item before using it. Our email to the owner (who does not live in France) about the state of the kitchen triggered an unfortunate response from the local manager who declined to assist us with any queries we had about various things in the house. Contrary to what we had been led to believe there was no mid-stay clean. 

We are mature experienced travellers who have rented rural houses in Europe on a couple of occasions, and appreciate that in a house as old as the Mill (which is why we chose it) some facilities will be less up to date than in more modern properties. We did not expect that we would have to clean the kitchen before using it and that some of the equipment would be unusable. No solution was offered, rather we were informed that for the price we paid (nearly 5,000 pounds ) we should not expect "hotel standards."
