“Cosy little retreat”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We found this little place on the Internet . The pictures portrayed on the website made you believe that it was an idyllic retreat nestled in the country, when in fact it is a well appointed self catering establishment located on a noisy and bustling one way street in the centre of blaye . There is some outside noise despite the double glazed window. We booked apartment 3 and it is well equipped. The one major complaint I have is that the website stated that there is air conditioning. Yes, there is in the lounge room!! The bedroom has a small fan which is totally inadequate. The bedroom could do with a ceiling fan as the room really gets unbearably hot overnight and I had to sleep on the couch. The Internet provided is great . The bathroom is spacious and there are great washing facilities . If you are lucky you can park directly on the street opposite the building, otherwise there is plenty parking available in the next street. All up a nice stay.

“A comfortable home away from home”
Reviewed 24 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed four nights in the loft apartment.
Blaye was a great base for us to tour the wine districts.
A safe and small friendly town away from busy Bordeaux.

The apartment had everything we needed to cook and live in comfort, it was clean and reasonably modern.

The supply of DVD movies was greatly appreciated as everything on TV was as would be expected was in French.

My only comment for improvement would be a couple of extra pillows for the bed.

All in all we liked it and had a wonderful time there cooking fresh scallops from the market and dining in the court yard.

“Beautiful apartment very quiet location”
Reviewed 22 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We were wowed by the apartment which was roomy and beautifully decorated. It was well equipped and easy to access. However Blaye itself was very very quiet and most evenings everything had closed by 9.30 pm and it was a very long drive to another major town. Also MOST of the chateaux were closed for August.

“great apartment and close to everything”
Reviewed 7 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A great place to stay, and everything in the apartment was well thought out and available.but too many stairs to carry heavy bags up and down.
The location is perfect but it is a bit hard to find.
No wify available that week which was inconvenient when we were meeting people.
Lots of information available about the area and a wonderful community area.

Every detail has been well thought our and tested to ensure that guests want for nothing at Chez Simone. It is well located and an ideal position for visiting the wine growing areas or just chilling out.
