You can access any room in the house. We kindly ask guests to refrain from entering an attic as it might be dangerous. Please keep the door to the cellar closed as the stairs are steep.
The house is made of old timber so do please refrain from smoking inside the house. If you you need a "puff" please do it outside. You should find some ashtrays around.
The house is made of raw old timber so beware of splinters!
Due to previous problems (and we’re sure this doesn’t relate to you…) we’ve needed to implement a minimum age requirement of 21+. Guests under the age of 21 are still entirely welcome – they will just need to be accompanied by parents or guardians.
The easiest way to disrupt an enjoyable stay is a plumbing problem. To prevent this, we kindly ask you to please place things like sanity napkins in the sanitary bin we’ve provided in the bathroom. We simply want to ensure you have a royal flush kind of holiday :)
If you’re coming to Gorce mountains to party you’ve picked a wrong place. Unfortunately, just not at our house.
Whilst we do a thorough professional clean between each guest stay, we kindly ask that prior to leaving, you clean and put away any dishes or kitchenware used and put any dirty towels in the hamper. It helps us get through our cleaning process quicker and allows us to keep cleaning costs down for you and future guests. We are high in the mountain and we do segregate the waste; plastic, metal, glass and organic waste have separate waste bins. Sorry for that inconvenience but we do care for our mother nature.
To ensure we keep the floorboards squeaky clean for our guests’ enjoyment, we have a no shoes policy inside our home.
We understand that accidents happen. But we do ask that you please let us know when they do. Chances are we can fix them as effortlessly as possible which also means better chances of having your full security deposit returned too.
Windows and doors
We are close to the wood and cattle/sheep stables. If you do not want flies and mosquitos in the house please open only the windows with mosquito nets.
We take water from a well below the house. It is perfectly ok to drink it but we recommend buying mineral water for drinking, tea and a coffee machine.
It might take a minute for a hot water to get to the bathrooms. Be patient.
Have a pet? Should be no problem… but please ask us first.
The place is absolutely safe. To ensure full safety of our guest’s belongings, we like to keep the front door locked during the night as a precautionary measure.
