"Thank you for an enjoyable stay at Place des Arbres."  P.G. August 2007

The one-bedroom apartment is situated on the ground floor of a former parsonage (presbytère) in the heart of of a beautiful town in the stunning department of La Creuse.

The living room has a very comfortable 3-seater sofa, which can be opened out for use as a second bed, and an armchair. The whole room is light, airy and bright.

The kitchen has everything you should need, including microwave, toaster, kettle, etc. The breakfast bar is the perfect place to eat at any time of the day, or to hang out and play games, or just have a chat over a glass of wine (or three).

The bedroom is comfortable and spacious enough for an armchair, should you want to sit by the window and read.

The shower room is of a good size.

Free wi-fi access is available to our guests

Outside the entrance is a very wide footpath. Whilst this is not private it is not used very often by pedestrians, and we have spent many an evening having a drink outside, and have even had a barbeque there.

The apartment is set back from a quiet road, with ample parking and is less than a minutes walk away from the beautiful town square, with it's cafés, pizzeria, restaurant, small supermarket and banks (with cash machines). The post office is just a minutes walk away. The train station is only 2 minutes walk away, and taxi office only a minute away.

There is no television in the apartment

If the apartment is booked you may be interested in chambre 3 with has a kitchen, large bathroom (with full sized bath and rain shower) and a king-sized bed.

Terms and conditions for booking of apartment:

The apartment, is ready for you from 16h. On departure day, we ask you to leave before 11am. If you want to arrive before 16h, or if you want to leave after 11am, please ask us if it is possible (there may be additional charges)

At the time of reservation the tenant shall pay a non-refundable 25% security deposit of the total rental price. The reservation can be cancelled, but the non-refundable deposit is forfeited.

The remaining balance of 75% must be paid 45 days in advance. If the tenant has not credited it to the owner's account 30 days before arrival, he/she is considered to have cancelled the reservation and the owner has the right to find another client for the same period.

If by any reason, including late booking or when the Owners agree to vary terms, the Balance becomes payable less than 45 days before arrival date then payment must be received on the Agreed Date or before or the Guest shall be deemed to have cancelled by default.
Insurance

As soon as possible after booking, you are strongly advised to ensure that you have full holiday insurance to cover ALL eventualities (including medical and accident emergencies, cancellation, travel delays etc.)
Cancellation If the Guest cancels after paying the deposit and over 45 before the arrival date the deposit shall be forfeit. The Guest shall bear no further liability even if the Owner fails to re-let the property for the period in question.

If the Guest cancels within 45 of the arrival date the owner shall endeavor to secure another let for the period confirmed. In the event that the Owner is unsuccessful then full payment (paid or owed) shall be forfeit. In the event that the Owner is successful he shall return the full payment less the deposit to the Guest. If, in order to re let the property the Owners must reduce the rates then the amount of reduction shall be recovered from the Guests' refund.

If the Guest cancels within 4 weeks of the arrival date he shall forfeit all monies paid or owed for the booking regardless of whether or not the owners manage to re-let the property.

Guests are reminded that most holiday insurance companies will cover the FULL COST of a holiday in the event of unavoidable cancellation. We strongly recommend Guests take out such a policy.

The Owners shall in no circumstances be liable for consequential loss due to Cancellation.

Cancellation is deemed to have occurred on receipt of communication by the Owner from the Guest (or his representative) by telephone, e-mail or post. It may also be deemed to have occurred by default as described in Terms above.

If the Owners wish to cancel they shall notify the Guests in writing and return to the Guests all monies paid by the Guests.

These clauses unfortunately are necessary in the running of a business. We feel they are clear and fair. However if you need to cancel please do contact us immediately so we might work towards a more satisfactory solution such as rescheduling your planned stay etc. If you have difficulty arranging payments for example we are able to be very flexible and can extend dates when we feel appropriate. We are in the business of providing relaxing and enjoyable holidays, not profiting from our Guests' misfortune and we will do our best to help.
