HOUSER FURNISHINGS
The holiday homes have been individually equipped according to the owners' taste. The furnishing conveys a particular flair to the guest and is not to be compared with standard holiday facilities. We value the flexibility and open-mindedness of our guests who therefore know that hardly anything can be the same as it is at home. This is true of such things as building standards, stairs, windows, locks, railings, sanitary and electric fittings, size and measurement.

  • The minimum standard in the kitchen includes a sink, cooking facility and refrigerator. Other appliances eg. dishwasher, microwave, are noted in the house description.
  • Telephone: many rental properties have a telephone whose use is often restricted to the local area. It may be used to full capacity upon purchase of a number-coded "Ticket de téléphone."
