“Thierry et son épouse nous ont agréablement accueillis. Nous avons passé un agréable séjour et leur maison est très chaleureuse. ”
“Great communication pre-arrival. Thierry welcomed us with open arms and took time to show us around the apartment and the local surroundings and telling us what to visit. Kindly left us plenty of provisions to get started. We enjoyed being able to take a dip in the pool as it was hot during our visit. The accommodation was fine with all the equipment one could need. The sofas and garden furniture so comfortable sometimes tempting to just stay seated but great area for exploring Avignon and the charming villages around. Great to have breakfast on the terrace and we loved the stone mosaic tiled tables and surfaces which meant no risk of leaving marks. Host family lives on site so helpful if needed and invisible so we felt private. ”
“Great location. The children really enjoyed the pool. Future love home swap users may like to know that this 'home' is on two levels with the host family living on the ground level while we stayed on the upper level with a shared garden. We were not aware that this two family arrangement would be the case prior to organizing the home swap. We did not feel this situation fulfilled the spirit of a genuine home swap. The upper level where we stayed was clean and had a nice balcony but in our opinion, the interior, particularly the kitchen, is in need of renovation. Please note there are no towels or cleaning products provided. On the day prior to our departure our host presented us with a bottle of floor cleaner with instructions to wash the floors for the next tourists. This was our first 'home swap' and we were very disappointed that we did not have a 'home away from home' experience but tried to make the most of the great location. RESPONSE FROM HOST: I am sorry that your stay at our house did not go as you wished, even if you enjoyed our region very much. There is a great misunderstanding because throughout our discussion, we have not been able to organize a direct exchange. Despite this, you were able to occupy the accommodation as described on the site Lovehomeswap and as soon as you arrived I told you that the garden and the swimming pool were only for you in a totally private space. We have another entrance and during your stay we never crossed paths and we never used the pool. Usually I offer my house for rent in July and August in exactly the same conditions and I never have bad opinions. With you it was my first home exchange on Lovehomeswap and I’ll be more specific next time. In the future I will provide all the household linen (towels and tea towels) as the bed linen already provided. My wife and I used to make our guests' house in a perfect state of cleanliness even if the cleaning service is included. This is our way of thanking our guests for having so kindly welcomed us. So I will say that the cleaning service is included. Finally following your remark on the state of my house while I never have a bad opinion of the European tourists who rent my house since 2009 , I decided to redecorate each of the rooms (walls, ceilings and decorations) as I always wish the satisfaction of my guests and I am always ready to improve our performances for the following year. Thierry”
“These guests could not have been more helpful and understanding, having arrived at a difficult time. They left my home in a wonderfully clean condition, especially appreciated at this time of Covid. I hope we will meet again.”
