The view is excellent. Alps with your morning coffee. Quiet, everything within walking distance. Service, however, is low. A few things is missing in the appartment: table cloth, a frying pan, salt&pepper, hand soap, sufficient toilet paper. In addition, cleaning is not satisfactory - we found old chips/crisps and candy under the beds! On top of this, the Swiss system of paying 25 Swiss Francs for linnen pr. person plus 39 Swiss Francs for cleaning pr. person and the tourist taxt (5.8 Swiss Francs pr. person per day) added a nice 150% to the total costs of our three day stay. It would be more honest to present future guests with a clear total price. What good is a bed without linnen? A hotel might turn out to be the best option and cheaper in the end.
We really enjoyed the large rooms and terasses outdoor. It is great to have realy furniture inside and outside.
- There're no curtains or shutters on the windows
- The sheets are minimal (and not optional)
- The house was quite dirty despite the payment for the cleaning
- The manager of the property accused me to stole one (1) pillowcase the day after we left. The pillowcase has been obviously found after a while, it was left behind during the collecting.
I've enjoyed my stay in Stintino for the sea, the nature, the landscape, but, for a short stay of 4 days, too many thing that didn't work out with the house.
I definitely recommend :)
Arrival procedure - what a nonsense. Having paid for the sheets you have to collect them in person from the office. We made it by the skin of our teeth before the office closed for the weekend. Because our flight was delayed we arrived in Chamonix later than expected and had the office been closed we would have had no sheets at all! They are bulky to carry and I have photos of my husband looking like Santa Clause with a big white sack over his shoulder. It's the height of nonsense to expect arrivals to lug luggage and carry this bulky bad around Chamonix. On departure we had to return the sheets to the office again in said bag!
End cleaning - the previous tenant had presumably paid therefore we expected a clean apartment. The hard surfaces were clean but the living room carpet was disgusting with stains and grime and dirty black marks (photographed). It needs either professionally deep cleaned or dumped. Personally I would replace it. My bed sheet had a dirty brown mark on it (photographed) and the "white" patio furniture was grey with grime. I don't think it had been cleaned in years. Before I would set as much as a mug on it I scrubbed it with the dish scrubber (which I then couldn't use on the dishes!). Again we have photographic evidence. The best feature of the apartment is the wonderful view of Mont Blanc from the balcony. I don't know who is employed to clean this apartment but they could do with a lesson or two. I will never use Interhome again and I recommend that you steer clear of it too. I've used Wimdu many times and always been satisfied but not on this occasion.
Nice clean well equipped apartment. Very friendly hoists. Would recommend to all my friends.
