Optional Pack and Go cleaning charge: Our guests are offered an optional cleaning charge prior to departure after your holiday.
Guests should try not to arrive any earlier than 4pm (usually on a Saturday). If transport arrangements are such that your time of arrival is earlier than this, please contact us with details well in advance, as it might be possible to allow entry prior to this time or at least allow for a luggage drop off. If travel arrangements mean that your arrival will be after 7pm, please advise us as soon as you can.
Guests must vacate the gite no later than 10am on their day of departure to enable us to prepare the accommodation for the next arrivals. Please remove all used bedding, leave it in the room ready for laundry, and leave the gite in the same condition that you found it. Our charges include a full ‘secondary’ cleaning service after vacation but we would not usually have to spend more than three hours on that service. Should you wish to simply ‘pack and go’, you can make use of our full after-holiday optional cleaning service instead; you may arrange this with us, see above for cleaning charges for each gite.
