Our rental period is normally Saturday 16:00 to Saturday 10:00. Our rates throughout the year include bed linen and towels, UK satellite TV, dedicated internet, utilities and all heating costs.
We have a 4 star classification from Étoiles de France, the official accreditation body. Click the icon above for details. Click HERE for our certificate.
The rates in the table below are applicable for a party of up to four adults plus minors of 17 or younger at the date of arrival. For parties of five or six adults there is an additional charge (please see below for details).
Out of the high summer season, on a one week booking we offer a reduction of £30 for couples requiring only the master bedroom.
La Goupillère is also suitable for shorter stays and, depending on the make up of your party, our rates are very competitive with and usually much cheaper than hotels anywhere in the area. You may of course stay for as short a period as you like but we feel that four nights is the minimum that makes economic sense... but you get so much more!
We are closed for short term bookings between 3rd November 2018 and 12th April 2019 but if you are considering a longer visit (one month plus) please contact us and we may be able to agree terms.
Our Rates in GB Pounds
If you book and pay the Booking Deposit before 6th January 2020 you may book any available dates at the GB Pound rates shown in the table below, irrespective of the prevailing £ / € exchange rate. From 6th January 2020 we will price in Euros only and your invoiced price in any other currency will be calculated at the prevailing rate on the day of your confirmed booking. We are convinced La Goupillère offers exceptional value but all of our costs are in Euros and we can no longer sustain the heavy exchange rate losses associated with the current Brexit uncertainties. In view of these uncertainties we reserve the right to withdraw this offer at any time prior to 6th January 2020.

Included. Our prices include everything you are likely to need - bedding, towels^, kitchen basics, cleaning & washing materials, loo paper, etc. Many properties charge extra for these or do not provide them at all. We can also provide, free, a cot with a high quality mattress, high chair, baby bath and changing mat upon request. We provide a generous "welcome pack" which should be ample for a light meal on your day of arrival. All heating and utilities are included, with the exception of electricity for charging electric or hybrid vehicles for which we will charge a fee. Please ask for details. ^Bathroom towels only, we do not provide free pool or beach towels.
Single Bedroom Occupancy. Ideal for couples who wish to stay out of peak season, La Goupillère is a large, three bedroom house with lots of space but it is not only suitable for families or groups. Outside the high summer season, for single bedroom occupancy a reduction of £30 applies on the one week rate above. Conditions apply; please see here. If needed the offer includes a baby sleeping in a cot.
Occupancy. With 3 double bedrooms, the property is intended to accommodate a maximum of six guests, which may be a mix of persons over and under 18. The rates quoted are for up to four adults and two minors (or e.g. two adults and up to four minors). For parties of more than four adults there is an additional charge of £70 per week per adult. A baby sleeping in a cot will not be considered a "guest".
Christmas & New Year. La Goupillère is a lovely place to spend Christmas and New Year. We go the extra mile to provide all you need to enjoy the festive period; a Christmas tree, decorations and more. You will have a warm and cosy house with a log burner but as our costs are very high we have a minimum price for this period irrespective of the duration. You may stay for a period of less than two weeks but the minimum charge is £1,500 for four adult guests.
Winter Bookings. La Goupillère is technically available all year round but we have few winter bookings. We cannot "rev it up" for short term bookings but we will be delighted to accommodate guests for longer periods subject to agreement on heating costs.
Sabbaticals. We offer a wonderful retreat. Quiet, tranquil, private, comfortable, internet connected, yet plenty of culture and civilisation when you want it. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
Cleaning. The house will be clean when you arrive and beds made up to your required specification. Pre-let preparation and the professional laundering of all bed linen is included in the rental price. Clean bed linen is provided according to the schedule detailed elsewhere*, depending on the duration of your stay. Ample clean towels will be provided upon your arrival but we leave the frequency of washing these to you (a washing machine and dryer are provided). Cleaning during your stay is not included but it may be possible to arrange for this at additional cost (only by prior agreement). Separate cleaning conditions apply to the pool and towels.
Booking Deposit. A booking deposit of 25% of the rental fee is required to secure your booking. The balance must be received 4 weeks prior to arrival. For bookings made within 4 weeks of arrival the full amount is payable when booking.
Security Deposit. A security deposit of £150 is payable with your final payment. This will be returned to you within one week of the completion of the rental period, less any deductions for damage or unreasonable breakages and, if appropriate, excess cleaning upon vacating the property. Please notify us of any damage, breakages or other issues prior to your departure so that an amicable agreement can be achieved. If you have the slightest problem with anything to do with the property please tell us straight away and it will be rectified immediately or at your convenience if you prefer.
Currency. We can invoice you in Sterling or Euros but please note the rates in the Sterling table above are indicative and the actual amounts may be recalculated based on our Euro rates at the time of booking ¬. For payment in other currencies, you may pay into our UK or French accounts, the transaction calculated so we receive the full invoiced amount. Please note that once you have paid the deposit any exchange rate used will apply to the entire transaction, irrespective of currency fluctuations. To pay in any other currency please contact us to agree a price as we do not simply use the fluctuating daily exchange rates.
Supplies. We supply the basics needed to start your holiday without having to worry about buying tea, coffee, sugar, whatever. We also provide a "welcome pack" (see above) but if there is anything else you would like please let us know prior to arrival. If you arrive later than expected you will not be left in the lurch and we will do our best to provide you with additional drink and food at cost price or you can simply replace anything you borrow.
* The frequency of bed linen changes may differ from those advertised depending upon the actual number of nights booked.
¬ This is to protect us from sudden depreciation of the £. Although we will try to maintain the published Sterling rates the only way to guarantee these are the rates you will receive is to book!
|Enquiry & Booking Notes|
Please contact us by e-mail or telephone and we will respond quickly. In fairness to all, we will reserve the dates you want upon your request to do so. A reservation will become a firm booking once the deposit has been paid, as set out in our T&Cs. Until enquiries are followed up by a positive indication that a booking will be made the property will remain available to whoever does so first.
We appreciate many people make enquiries about a lot of potential properties before making a decision. We will be grateful if you would advise us of any decision not to book La Goupillère so that we at least know our reply to your enquiry was received.
