“Wonerful gite. Fantastic gite with real French charm”
Reviewed August 5, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

I stayed at Caminade for a week with my husband, one year old daughter and my mother. We were all really happy with the gite and were really impressed with the facilities. We were expecting a travel cot for my daugher but in fact she had a beautiful wooden cot, complete with bedding ready for her as well as a box of toys that belong to Lynette's grandchildren! The warm welcome from Lynette and Dave was wonderful. They were really helpful and friendly and my daughter loved their gorgeous dog Poppy! The pool is clean and refreshing, especially with such hot weather and there was so much outside space that we didn't get on top of each other.
The area surrounding Caminade is beautiful, although everything is at least a short drive away. The village is small but got all the amenities you could need and very friendly locals. I would definitely recommend staying here if you want a relaxing holiday or if you are travelling with children. We will definitely stay here again.

“Wonderfully Friendly Comfortable Gite in Lovely Quiet Rural Area”
Reviewed June 30, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We have stayed here on a dozen occasions and will continue to come back in future. The gite is a solid old farmhouse well appointed with nice furnishings and all the necessary appliances and facilities for a fully self-contained holiday. Lovely fire for when it gets cold in autumn, and shuttered windows to allow the air to circulate when it gets hot. Nice pool, and the people, Dave and Lyn give a wonderful welcome - they'll give you as much space as you want. Their dog Poppy is a major attraction, alongside the resident cats, Clarissa and new arrival Sid, If you don't like animals they will leave you in peace, and never come in the gite. The block barbecue is ideal for lazy broil ups outside, and the back room has a nice deck outside. The region is bursting with character, and the countryside is beautiful. We have never returned to one spot other than this one.

I am disappointed that this client was not satisfied with Caminade.

The points she has raised regarding 'not as bright and sunny as the advert' and 'damp' maybe caused by the fact that whilst this client stayed at Caminade she rarely opened the shutters, curtains or the windows. Had she done so this would have allowed the sun in and the air to circulate through the property.

It is clearly stated in the advert that Dave & I live on site, this also enables us to deal immediately with any issues our clients may have, if we are told.

As regards cutlery and bedding again cutlery is replaced every year where necessary and the bedding every two years. I do agree the freezer is small and is situated in the fridge.

My husband and I work hard to ensure that all our clients have a good and enjoyable holiday whilst they stay in Caminade and this is re-enforced with returning clients year after year.

Is is a shame that this client could not tell us of her issues whilst staying at Caminade, even though she was happy to accept our hospitality on a number of occasions.

We have rented Caminade for 9 years and this is our first disappointing review. I hope it does not deter people from coming to stay here and having a great holiday.
