In many rural areas and small towns, only French issued credit cards will work in the 24 hour petrol (essence or carburant) stations. We strongly recommend that you keep your fuel tank filled as there can be long distances to the next fuel stop.

We are insured as a Rural Gite under French law with Axa Insurance in France.

OUR INSURANCE DOES NOT COVER ANY PERSONAL EFFECTS, EQUIPMENT, CLOTHING OR CAR LOSSES. Please make sure you have suitable travel and medical insurance (see below).

MEDICAL : Your UK issued European Health Insurance Card should be kept with you at all times in Europe, in case of an accident or emergency. France is essentially a private health care system and can be costly if you need to use it for any reason, and it is paid for at point of need.

DRIVING : There are special equipment requirements for your car, such as fire extinguisher, two warning triangles, and hi-vis jackets for all. Please check you can meet these requirements before you leave the UK, recently this now includes a mini breath test kit in the car from this July (buy on the ferry or immediately at the port of arrival). Speed camera infringements are recorded against your car number plate by the French police. Should you be stopped later in your holiday the police can enforce the payment of outstanding speeding fines, and in serious cases notify DVLA in Swansea of any offence.  You are five times more likely to be breath-tested in France than the UK at any time of the day or night (the limit is 50mgs or about one small glass of wine). The Gendarmes National can stop you in your car without reason. They frequently carry out Control Points at major intersections where they stop every vehicle and check road worthiness and documentation. Your vehicle can be impounded if you cannot present the correct documentation (photo-licence not just the green sheet, insurance certificate for the car and any trailer/caravan, and the MoT test certificate). Generally French police officers are very courteous and relaxed and expect the same in return; they often speak other EU languages and are generally very helpful.

Horses: We have horses and stables on the property and so ask guests not to bring pets with them. Please ask us about the horses and pets at The Cidre Barn. 

The original Les Fourneaux bakery is derelict so we ask guests to steer clear of the building, we can show you the interior by arrangement if you wish.
