Both gîtes can be rented separately or together. We rent from April to September. Outside this period in consultation. Separate arrangements are possible for stays longer than two weeks.
We keep the rental simple: there is no deposit. First payment of 50% is due upon reservation, The other 50% are due no later than 30 days before the start of the rental.
The rent can start on any day of the week and the rental period is at least 5 days. Arrival from 3 p.m., departure no later than 10 a.m.
The large gîte costs 100 euros per night, for final cleaning 90 euros will be charged. For the small gîte the rent is 65 euros per night, final cleaning 60 euros. We expect you to leave the gîte in an orderly condition (“broom clean”).
In these prices everything is included (gas, electricity, water, heating, wood for the wood stove in the large gite, use of washing machine/tumble dryer (dryer only available in the large gite), tourist tax). We assume reasonable use. Also included are bed linen and kitchen/dish towels. You only need to bring your own bathroom towels (these can be provided to a limited extent, to be agreed separately).
The house is furnished for normal occupancy, you can use what is available in the kitchen. It will in any case include things like herbs, pepper/salt, tea, often coffee and always toilet paper and garbage bags. We do expect you to more or less restock what you take (surprise us). In any case, Saint-Germain-L’Herm has a small supermarket and an excellent bakery.
There is a fast WiFi internet connection throughout the house (fibre has been installed in this part of the Auvergne). Mobile reception is sporadically available outside the house. The fixed telephone connection can be used (normal telephone traffic to fixed and mobile numbers within Europe is free because it is included in the internet subscription).
There is the option of a ‘workplace package’ that can consist of a laptop (i5 processor, Windows 10, Microsoft Office), black and white laser printer or multifunctional (print/scan/copy), 24 inch screen, webcam, separate mouse and keyboard.
When booking you will receive more detailed information about various practical matters. The house is managed by a local resident, who speaks a limited amount of English and is your contact on site.
