Customer Reviews

  • Villa Claude lived up to the description provided. The house was clean, comfortable and superbly equipped. The garden was ideal for our large family gathering, with spacious separate areas as described. The pool was perfect in size and design, and was well maintained. We did not use the outdoor kitchen, although this would have been excellent.

    The owner (Claude) lived next door and was welcoming, friendly and helpful.

    This was one of the best houses we have rented.

  • We arrived at Villa Claude for our fortnight's holiday and were overwhelmed with all the facilities, pool and location. We couldn't,t have asked for more, just one thing let us down, the dishwasher! We cleaned the filter etc. but it still didn't do it's job properly, however there was enough of us to wash up!! I would definitely recommend the property for a big family holiday especially if you got the weather we had!!

  • “UN PARADIS au bord du Canal du Midi”

    Un accueil des plus chaleureux, une maison d'une propreté irréprochable, une piscine dans une végétation tropicale, un environnement très calme à deux pas d'un village authentique.
    Certainement notre meilleure location depuis bien longtemps!!!!!!
    Merci au propriétaire qui de plus est un guitariste incontournable.

    Dear Juliana,
    Well, the holiday is over!  However, having just got back into a routine at home, I thought I would let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in Argeliers.
    The house was just perfect. There was enough space for the 12 of us to enjoy either individual space or having a laugh around the pool. Mr Marande was there to meet us when we arrived and showed me around.  Everything was ready for us, the bedrooms and bathrooms clean and the kitchen was well equipped.
    I and my friends would definitely recommend this property and we are seriously thinking of going back again next year.
    Thank you once again for all your help throughout the booking and securing of the property and would ask you to send our sincere thanks to the owners for allowing us to use their lovely house."
    Regards, Jane and friends.

  • The property description was perfect. It was good value for money. Excellent kitchen, very well equipped. Cleanliness on arrival was very clean and tidy. Our communication throughout with Juliana was fantastic. Very helpful, informative and she was at the end of an email every step of the way. She was happy to show our friends around the property before we arrived so that we knew what to expect. We had a fantastic holiday and are seriously considering returning to the same property next year. Enough said!
