If the number of guests mentioned in the contract is exceeded and without our agreement, we reserve the right to refuse the additional guests or to perceive an increase. You agree to leave the place in the same state as you found it upon your arrival.

We do not provide wood or charcoal for the barbecue. The ashes of the fireplace or barbecue must be disposed in the ash bucket located in the garage. To avoid risks of fire do not throw the ashes in any trash. When using the barbecue do not place the barbecue under any external vaults or too close to our lovely plantations as they will not appreciate the heat.

Water and Power

Water and energy are our future, let's not waste them!

With respect for the environment thank you for not wasting energy, here are some recommendations:
• If you heat or cool any room, please do not leave doors and windows open.
• If you leave the house, turn off or lower the heating and air conditioning.
• Do not let the heated towel rails in the bathrooms switched on continuously throughout the day.
• For cozy heating in winter use the fireplace.
• In winter, close the shutters at night for better insulation. The same in summer during day time when temperature is high, it helps to keep the freshness of the house.

We are equipped with solar panels to take advantage of greener and more economical energy. As a result, it is more appropriate to operate energy-intensive equipment during periods of strong sunlight.

We remind you that according to your contract the amount of electricity used during your stay is limited, any excess will be charged.

Water is a precious and a vital resource for our daily needs. We should not only pay attention to our water consumption during time of drought. A reasonable use of water can reduce the increasing demand which puts pressure on our resources.

GPS is not always the best option…

Welcome to « L’Autre Maison », first we would like to inform you that the main entrance door of the house is located “rue du plan”.

When you arrive in St Jean de Ceyrargues park on the Place du Plan, access by rue du bassin, do not take the narrow streets of the village and avoid the church / town hall area.

If you use a GPS, be careful! Put as destination “Saint Jean de Ceyrargues” if you put the postal code with rue de la fontaine it is likely that the GPS will take you to another nearby village. You will find the exact location of “L’Autre Maison” on Tom-Tom GPS (depending on your update), on Google Maps and on the map of your iPhone. Please note that GPS tends to take you through the narrowest streets.
