Our expectations were based on the pictures, descriptions and prices advertised on the internet. We were not given the "gite" that is advertised and which opens onto the garden. Instead it opened onto a path and the neighbours' garden/ water tanks. The bedroom had no windows ( I learnt recently that it is in fact illegal in France to rent out living spaces with no windows- fire safety!). Prices were steeper than those seen online Not £41 as advertised but over £60. We had to keep a loud humidifier on during the day (I imagine the hosts want to keep the damp out of their basement space - not make the place cooler for guests, which is what they said it was for). Place was clean, with all utilities you would expect, towels, cutlery, bedsheets etc. We were welcomed by the owners, a couple of retired expats who, despite living in France, kept complaining about the French to us (me, a French national from the region, and my partner, English). Never again.
