If it is and when you have confirmed you would like to make the booking, we require you to transfer a deposit of £150 (sterling) by bank transfer or simply pop into your local bank. Details sent to you on request. Your balance is sent to us 8 weeks before arrival.
Q. We don't speak French - is that a problem?
A. No, most of the restaurants have English speaking staff . However, this is "the real France", not the coast and you may find it useful to bring a phrase book with you. The locals are extremely friendly and welcoming and really appreciate it if you try to speak a few words of French, even just "hello" and "thank you". Don't be shy - have a go!!
