Do I need to arrange additional caretaking services in advance?
This is very important and will need to be arranged at least 3 months before your holiday to enable the caretakers to plan their work diaries.
Do I need to arrange a taxi in advance from the airport?
This is recommended as it is a small airport and taxis are not always available. See "Travel" and "Concierge" for details.
What if I have a fake tan?
Bed linen and fake tans do not mix. We will have to charge guests for stained linen and towels.
Do I need to recycle?
Glass bottles must be recycled in the bottle banks in the village near the graveyard. Turn right at the Mairie and it will be found on the right hand side of the road after the school. Plastic, tin, paper and cardboard can be placed in the Yellow sacks provided and the caretakers will deal with them on your departure.
Can I visit the other LDV villa during my stay?
Contact Tracey for details. They are only 10 minutes apart and a visit is encouraged as the two villas are very different.
Can I use post codes in the Sat Nav to locate the holiday villas?
No, this does not work in rural France as the post code covers a very large area. Please use the information in "Directions" to find your holiday home.
What time can I arrive? after 5:00pm. The caretakers finish at this time and your holiday home will be all ready for you. Your key will be posted to you two weeks before your holiday.
What if I arrive in the dark?
A torch is recommended for your rural French holiday as due to very little light pollution, it is very dark when it’s dark! If you are planning to arrive in the dark then please let Tracey know to ensure you have all the information you need regarding directions.
What time should I depart?
9:30 am. The 3 ladies need to work on the house from 9:30 to 5:00pm to ensure the house is beautiful for the next guests.
Are late checkouts possible?
This is only possible out of season.
How should I leave the house?
Full details are on "House Information" web page. Please read carefully as it affects the return of your security deposit.

Is the WIFI as good as being in a city?
It is improving all the time and we have the best packages available, however, it is much slower than you may be used to in a city. Please do not download films or huge files as it will affect the wifi for other guests. It is common for the signal to drop out, and when this happens take a photo of the position of the leads in the modem, then pull the leads out and leave for 10 minutes and then replace them and wait for it to reboot.
Can I wear suntan lotion in the pool?
We ask our guests to shower before as it affects the ph levels and also marks the liner.
