“Nice apartment but beware hidden costs and dodgy drains!”
Reviewed 25 July 2011 for a stay in February 2011

The appartment is very comfortable with good facilities and very well located on a lovely street in the Old Town. The owners have put a lot of thought into making it comfortable for their guests. We did have a couple of problems with the shower. Firstly the door somehow fell off it's rollers on top of my partner, shattering and cutting him - thankfully not seriously. There was also a problem with the drainage in the shower room which we were told was a recurring problem that couldn't be solved - this meant that the drain in the shower room emitted a very bad smell which permeated the whole appartment and we ended up having to buy lots of chemicals which we kept pouring down - not very eco friendly. I would also say that during our stay which we were lucky enough to have fantastic sunshine, the sun was never high enough in the sky to hit the balcony, and the windows all look onto an internal courtyard, so it wasn't quite the bright sunny apartment we had read about. I think in the height of summer, the sun would hit the balcony, but only for a short period of time, as it is very overlooked, so this is worth bearing in mind for sun seekers.
We also were shocked at the end of our stay when the owners withheld a large chunk of our deposit for laundering the bed linen and cleaning the apartment (despite the fact we had cleaned, mopped and hoovered the day we left) - something we were not warned of. The owner lives in Australia and also expects her clients to cover the bank charges both ways for the payment and then the return of the deposit, which works out to be quite pricy. The owner turned out not to be very pleasant with us, so from the experience of dealing with her, I couldn't recommend this property.

We are pleased that the reviewer found our apartment comfortable and thoughtfully furnished and the location very pleasant, particularly as their stay was during the height of winter. We were most concerned when told that the shower screen had come off its runner when in use by the husband and a new one was fitted immediately. There had been no sign of a problem with the shower door prior to their stay so this came as quite a surprise to us. We did warn them of the drain problem prior to their stay and compensated them for the cleaning products required to keep it at bay. Fortunately the shower drain problem was permanently solved on their departure once the apartment was unoccupied for a few days.
Holiday makers should be aware that the south of France experiences winter too and the sun does not rise as high in the sky during this time of the year. As the apartment is located in the heart of the old town surrounded by other buildings it is not bright and sunny during winter. This would apply to virtually all of the properties in the historic heart of Pezenas. The reviewers were warned about this before making their booking. They would have a very different experience during the other seasons, as is demonstrated in the pictures of the apartment featured in this advertisement.
There has only been one occasion in the two years of running Appartement Francois when we have not returned the security deposit in full to a tenant. The couple who have written this review are that one exception. We always try to be extremely generous to our clients and provide them with little extras which will ensure they have a comfortable and enjoyable experience. As this couple were staying during winter we provided them with extra sets of linen for all the beds in the apartment and plenty of towels too in case they had any problems with drying during this cold and wet time of the year. On their departure all linen was left dirty and in some cases permanently stained; they broke 2 glass shower doors; a kitchen tap was broken; furniture was indelibly marked with coffee cup stains; the settee was permanently stained; and the whole apartment was left in a dirty state. It required 2 full days of cleaning to bring it back into a suitable state for the next guests. The money which was retained from their security deposit paid for the extra cleaning and laundry costs. They were not charged for any damages.
The experience we had with this couple has stopped us from offering our apartment for any future long term rentals. We have generally been very lucky in the wonderful array of guests we have had stay in Appartement Francois. Their appreciation of the standard of accommodation it provides seems to invite a reciprocal response of thoughtfulness and respect from our guests.
