Bed Linen, Towels etc
For short stays up to and including 3 nights we would not expect to change the bed linen or towels unless you asked us to do so. If your stay is for longer than 3 nights we would generally change the linen and towels after 3 nights and at the same frequency thereafter, at no additional cost. If you do not wish to have the linen/towels changed , or if something happens and you require one or both to be changed for some reason, please tell us.
The cost of the room is 70 euros per night. Breakfast is included. Dinner is available, if required, at a standard charge of 20 euros per person, and includes a starter, main course, cheese course, dessert and coffee. If you have ordered an evening meal and you have an aversion to a particular food, please tell us promptly. If you require lunch. This can be available also at a cost of 10 euros per person. We prefer that you pay in cash (euros). However cheques drawn on a French or English bank account are also acceptable if cash is not available. You will be asked to settle your account before departure.
The TV in the room does not play French television. It will play DVD’s, and we have placed a small selection in the room for you. If you do not know how to play a DVD, or you are having difficulties, please ask, and we will try to help. If you would like to watch a film, but what you see isn’t there, we have a large selection of DVD’s in our collection. Please ask, and we will see if we have the kind of film you would like to see.
Games, Pool etc

Your room will have been prepared for you on arrival and if anything is amiss, please tell us. We would not expect to clean your room during your stay unless, for some reason, it became necessary. However if you are staying for more than 3 nights, we will generally have a tidy up when we change the bed linen and towels, and at no additional charge to you.

We have set the unit to deliver 20 degrees centigrade in Summer and 22 degrees in Winter. For normal operation simply press the power button on the remote control which you will find on the wall near the large shelf. Please remember to close all windows and doors when the unit is in operation. We have placed an Instruction Manual in your room for the air-conditioning unit so that you can programme it to your satisfaction. You can always ask us to help.
Please be extra careful. The floor of the shower and bathroom may become slippery when wet.
The door in front of the shutters can be locked. To do this lift the handle as high as it will go. Then turn the key anti-clock wise to lock the door and clockwise to open it.
