Will we need a car?
How do we find our way to the property and how do we get in?
What time can we arrive at the property and what time do we have to leave?
If you know in advance that you will not be able to arrive by 6 pm, please let us know your arrival time so we can make alternate arrangements. If you are delayed en route and will not be able to arrive by 6 pm, please call the keyholder to advise them of your new arrival time.
What types of household and food items will be supplied?
Services and shops in most villages and small towns are closed on Sundays and Monday mornings. Since most rentals start and end on a Saturday, we suggest you stop at a local market on your way to the house for provisions to last until Monday.
What about major appliances?
How do we find out about weekly markets close to the property, good restaurants, nearby shops and services and the most interesting tourist attractions?
Once you arrive, you can also visit the local Office de Tourisme for tourist maps and brochures.
What do we do if there are problems at the property?
If the problem is not resolved by the keyholder, you can contact French Farmhouse Holidays either France or in Canada (the French number will be supplied in your info kit). Be aware that there is a 9-hour time difference between France and the west coast of Canada. We will respond as quickly as possible.
Does the property have to be spotless when we leave?
If more than average cleaning is required to prepare for the next renter, charges for extra cleaning will be charged to you.
Are French roads difficult to navigate?
A few general speed limit rules (unless otherwise marked!):
- in a village or city – 50 km (as soon as you see a white sign with a red border with the city’s name)
- outside a village or city on a road with no central road divider – 90 km
- outside a village or city on a road with a central road divider – 110 km (90 km when raining)
- on the highway – 130 km (110 km when raining)
