Saturday is the ‘normal’ changeover day; however, we are flexible. For those who prefer to avoid Friday traffic, ferry / tunnel queues etc, we will always try to be helpful, subject to existing bookings. Where possible, we are happy to add extra days, e.g. to make a ten-day stay. Whatever your requirements, please ask; we will always try to be as accommodating as possible.

A ‘welcome pack’ awaits your arrival: milk, bread, tea & coffee, and a bottle of wine.

Guests are requested to leave Le Tilleul clean and tidy. ‘Normal’ cleaning between lets (and mid-way in a two-week let) is included in the rent; but we reserve the right to make a charge if the house is left in an unreasonable state.

Arrival time: from 4pm. Departure time: by 10.30am, please.

Additional cleaning is available, if required, during your stay; at a cost of £15 per hour.
