Owners Direct France
Here at Le Verger, we like to take real pride in looking after the property and grounds (usually to the detriment of our own house!) When you rent a holiday property, it can often be disappointing to find disinterested/unavailable managers, absent (equally disinterested) owners and a general lack of care and investment in the property. Renting direct from the owners, who live in France, can be a real bonus – including renting at the lowest prices – as you are renting direct without costly middlemen.
Every year, we invest heavily in keeping Le Verger bright and fresh, be it replacing rugs,
bedlinen, towels and sofa covers to keep them fabulous and new looking, or bigger items like the new blingy American fridge freezer.
Lots of little details can also make a difference:
- Freshly-planted flowers on the terrace
- Herb garden for fabulous home-grown flavours
- Coffee filters ready in the coffee machine for you
- Salt & pepper pots refilled
- Rinse aid/salt refilled in the dishwasher (doesn’t that drive you mad, when it isn’t?!) + supply of dishwasher tablets
- Kitchen roll, cling film, foil, bin bags, spices etc ready in the kitchen
- Even a loo roll in each bathroom
Of course, living locally in France, means we can personally oversee the property. However, don’t think you will be spotting us over the garden fence. We are out of sight/earshot, giving you total privacy. (We are often unobtrusively available should an emergency arise).
Debs chooses the cotton percale bedlinen (both new and some fabulous antique sheets) and launders it with a passion, along with the super-size fluffy towels. Let’s face it – nobody wants to be wasting space bringing towels on holiday with them!
Richard works hard in the grounds, expertly mowing and strimming and generally trying
to tame nature! Of course, we try and remain as unobtrusive as possible, and will always aim to mow, wherever possible, when guests are out.
We hope when you stay here, you will enjoy the benefit of our efforts. Bonnes vacances 🙂
