Castel de Cantobre Gîtes, The Griffon Gîte Inventory and Factsheet

  • What the Rental Price Includes:
    1. Bed linen (beds will be made up for your arrival), towels and tea towels (for use inside the gîte only).
    2. Baby cots and high chairs are available (please request when booking as we need to make sure we have enough here). We do provide cot linen but suggest you bring your own for your baby’s comfort.
    3. Consumables for use in the gîte: salt, pepper, sunflower oil, balsamic vinegar, herbes de Provence, herbs in our garden (sage, thyme, rosemary), coffee filter papers, kitchen roll, toilet paper, liquid soap for hand washing, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, multi-surfaces cleaning spray, dish washing sponges and cloths and bin liners.
    4. Electricity and tap water.
    5. Under-floor heating (maximum 21 °C) in all rooms except the 2 bedrooms on the top floor of The Griffon which have electric heaters; electric radiators can be used in any room if you need more heat. The gîtes have a B rating in energy efficiency!
    6. When the outside temperature rises above 25 °C, the surplus electricty from our solar panels can be used to reverse the under-floor heating system and cool the floor to between 20 °C and 16 °C (depending on the outside temperature). It is your choice whether you leave your windows and doors open during the day or to cool the floor; it is a waste of energy to do both at the same time! During hot weather, our advice is to keep windows and doors closed during the day and windows open at night.
    7. BBQ (but not the charcoal), a limited supply of sun loungers and magnificent scenery.
    8. Cleaning equipment for you to keep the gîte clean and tidy. You are expected to leave the accommodation in the same state as you found it. A cleaning charge of 45 Euros plus 10 Euros per bedroom will be made if the gîte requires cleaning after your departure.
    9. Laundry facilities including washing machine and laundry detergent. A drying machine is also available (wet weather use only please).
    10. If you stay more than 7 nights, we provide a change of linen and towels once a week. If you require more frequent changes we make a charge of 10 Euros per bed; we do provide free laundry facilities for you to use if you wish.
    11. Access to our shared library of CDs, DVDs, books and games, and use of our secure WiFi (30Mb+).

  • Booking and Payments
