This lovely cottage and pool will be your own private country escape! Situated a short drive from Roman/Medieval Arles, it is in the wild Camargue famous for pink flamingos, white horses, black bulls and its beaches near the town of Stes Maries.
Respect the property as you would your own.
•Sorry, No Smoking inside the houses and no cigarette butts left on the property.
•Be friendly and courteous to Jacky, Margot , the caretakers, and the gardeners. Hellos and good-byes are much appreciated - it is a French custom every time they meet.
•Please respect the owners’ and care takers’ personal properties. The vegetable garden and chicken house are Margot and Jacky’s, the orchard belong to the main house.
•Flush only waste and toilet paper, The cottage has a septic system that will clog up with anything else or stop working with caustic chemicals.
•Keep mosquito screens closed (unless you like that itchy sensation). Be aware that these insects are usually active at dawn and dusk, or humid days. So use insect repellant (unless you really like that itchy sensation)
•Broken/disappeared house items should be reported to me so that they can be replaced immediately.
•Bring and use your own pool and beach towels. We provide luxurious large towels just for the inside.
•Feel free to use the communal laundry line by the Mas. For little items there is a line strung across the shower.
•Beware the wind – it has been known to deposit umbrellas and cushions in the pool and occasionally on one’s head, so please do not leave them unsupervised.
•Always bring inside cushions, and table cloths when you leave for any period of time, and overnight, windy days or, of course, should it threaten to rain.
•Always lock the cottage when leaving for any period of time.
•Check that lights and stove are off when leaving the house.
•At the end of your stay, leave the house clean - Excessive uncleanliness will result in a reduction of your deposit.
•And, most importantly, enjoy your time in this very special place!
