Fabulous service. Great advice and holiday was as promised. I can't fault them!
Service rating : Very helpful and knowledgeable.Product: On the whole a lovely spacious villa in a great location, well equipped and comfortable, our kids were rarely out of the pool. The only downside was the cleanliness of the hot tub which was also highlighted to the local contact. This resulted in us not using it the whole time we were there. Also the directions to get there were a bit vague and difficult to follow.
Cannot fault the service from beginning to end. We were very happy customers.
Service rating : Very helpful. Great customer service. Go out of their way to make things workProduct: Amazing house. Lovely pool. Great location. Peaceful location, but just a few minutes walk down the lane to a great pop up restaurant ( there in summer) and another fantastic restaurant. House is a real home from home. Fantastic facilities and lovely lady that looked after the house for homeowners. Couldn't have asked for more.

Service rating : The team were very helpful in supporting us when thinks with our travel went wrong and helped us to liaise with the accomadation.Product: We loved the site, it was very well run and clean. The pool area was great as was facilities in cabin. It was very hot and not air con. Fans were expensive to hire, only down side. Plenty of kids and adult activities on site but as we couldn't speak French we didn't know what activities on site our children could join in with?

Service rating : I have been using Alternative Aquitaine for 8 years and have always received efficient service. They are friendly, trustworthy and focused company. They are always ready to help, even when outside of their remit. Wholeheartedly recommend them as a travel agent.Product: We love this place.
I cannot speak highly enough of Alternative Aquitaine and their staff. They were able to offer me a range of beautiful villas according to my requirements and confirm my reservation quickly and with the minimum amount of fuss. They were efficient, helpful and courteous. The villa itself was beautiful, in a great location and the manager was on-hand to help out with any queries we had. Our only regret was that we couldn’t stay longer. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Alternative Aquitaine again and would recommend them unreservedly. Looking forward to seeing the new locations they are currently adding to their portfolio.

Service rating : We have been away with Alternative Aquitaine before, and will certainly do so again! Their selection of properties is fantastic, and they couldn’t have been more helpful when booking my holiday. The booking process is friendly and efficient, and the information sent to us before our holiday really helped us to make the most of our time away. Thank you AA!Product: What a find! From the moment we arrived at Villa des Cigales we felt completely relaxed and at home. The villa was clean, well-provisioned and perfectly designed for two families holidaying together, with plenty of room for us all. The location couldn’t have been better – a beautiful cycle ride (or run a couple of times!) to the beach; walk to the bay with its own beach and oyster beds; fantastic market right on the doorstep (selling everything from delicious local produce to quality jewellery and clothes). Our teenagers had plenty to do to keep them occupied, and the chic centre of Cap Ferret was only a short bike ride away. A huge thank you to the owners - we’ll definitely be coming back!
Service rating : Alternative Aquitaine were professional and helpful, as always. In an increasingly impersonal and automated age, it’s so refreshing to find a company where the phone is answered immediately, by knowledgeable and friendly staff who really listen to what you want before suggesting a range of suitable places. All our queries were answered promptly and efficiently, and the contact details they gave us for our trip gave us confidence that we would be looked after during, as well as before our stay.Product: We loved our time at Framissima! The accommodation was basic but clean and well designed, and had everything we needed for a family of four. The staff at reception were really friendly and helpful, and it was easy to hire bikes at the on-site bike hire shop (who didn’t even charge us when we lost one of the lock keys, and had to use their industrial metal-cutters to free the bike!). The location in the forest is just lovely – it was a real treat to eat outside all week, and to use the bike trails through the forest to cycle to the beautiful beaches and markets nearby. There was plenty going on at the centre for younger kids, and a pizzeria and bar/restaurant for the days we couldn’t be bothered to cook
