These days people are tempted by the incredible range of things to see and do in Europe to try to 'do it all' in one trip. Following this modern 'bucket list' trend is a mistake in our opinion.
And not just our opinion. Read how people who adopted our more relaxed 'slow traveller' approach say it was the best holiday of their lives here, or scroll down to learn more about our philosophy of discovering the real France in depth.
Minimum and Maximum Stays
Ordinarily, the minimum period you can and should book is one week.
All our guests say that one week was good, but they could easily have stayed longer!
So bear this in mind when planning your itinerary.
Normally the maximum booking is six weeks in any
one cottage, but longer stays, and sometimes shorter stays, can be arranged if you have special circumstances.
Friday to Friday
Each cottage is available for bookings on a weekly
basis (or multiples of one week) arriving after 4:30
pm on the Friday afternoon and leaving before
9:30 am the Friday morning of your departure.
These arrival times allow our guests to enjoy the
experience of the wonderful Saturday morning
markets and to obtain the week’s supplies – far
better than a Saturday starting day, where you
miss this great experience.
Supermarkets and Commercial Shopping Centres are closed on Sundays too, another reason for arriving on a Friday not a Saturday.
