La Vieille Maison comfortably sleeps up to 6 people in 3 large bedrooms and offers animal-friendly accommodation. All beds are 2m long and are either King-size (160cm wide) or Superking (180cm wide) that can be configured as either 2 singles (each either 80cm or 90cm wide, depending on the bed) or a double as required. Please state your preference on the booking enquiry form.

Clean, fresh, hand towels, bath towels and bed linen appropriate to the number of guests are included in the price, and all beds will be fully prepared before your arrival. For stays of 14 nights or more, we offer a complete change of bed linen and towels after 7 nights if you require, at no extra charge. Please note that we do not supply swimming towels.

A full-size cot and high chair are available on request (no extra charge). Please indicate on the booking enquiry form whether you require these. Please note that we do not supply bed linen for the cot, which has a 60cm x 120cm mattress.

For autumn and winter breaks, there are thermostatically controlled electric radiators in all rooms, plus a 10kW Godin wood burner in the living room. The weekly tariff includes electricity for the radiators plus wood for the wood burner.

Hygiene and safety

We will supply all necessary household cleaning products and toilet paper for your stay. Please ensure you read carefully the section on Water and Septic Tank in the Terms and Conditions, which can be found here in English and here in French.

We ask you to leave some time at the end of your stay to ensure the property is left clean and tidy as far as is reasonably practicable, in order to allow us enough time to ensure that everything is as clean and hygienic as possible for our next guests.

At every changeover, we always clean and disinfect all floors, kitchen work surfaces, bathroom sanitary wares, table tops and hard-back chairs. We also disinfect high-touch surfaces such as light switches, door handles, handrails and remote controls.

There are smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors in the kitchen and in the lounge, and a smoke detector on the first-floor landing. We test each of these at every changeover.

In the kitchen, there is a fire blanket and a powder fire extinguisher that is suitable for fires involving wood, paper, textiles (fire type A), flammable liquids such as petrol, diesel and oil (fire type B) and gases (fire type C).

Patio and BBQ area
The garden…
…from the paddock

Outside is a large private garden (about ¼ acre), with a covered patio area, garden furniture, sun loungers and a 47cm Weber charcoal kettle BBQ with FireStarter chimney and quality utensils. There is also a firebowl and additional chairs that can be used on colder evenings and during winter breaks. The garden is fully enclosed by wire mesh fencing for the security of young children and/or animals.

There is a private driveway with ample parking for several vehicles in front of the property. In addition, covered parking is available for a horse trailer. Please note that our driveway will accommodate horse trailers and smaller lorries (maximum 7.5T with a 12ft head height). If you have any questions or concerns about this, please contact us.

Animals

Dogs are welcome (maximum of 2) for a small additional weekly charge, but please note that we do not supply any bedding or food/water bowls for your dog(s). A dog cage is available on request. For UK guests we are more than happy to book an appointment with our vets for tapeworm treatment for your dog before your return to the UK. This is normally administered not less than 24 hours and not more than 120 hours before you return.

We can also accommodate up to 2 horses at additional cost (we have 3 horses of our own). Please contact us with your requirement.
