Central France short stay stop over

#1 PostAuthor: moizeau » Thu Feb 03, 2022 7:32 pm

We bought a town house in our village that hadn't been lived in for 15 years. We've been renovating it for the past year and it's nearly finished. We've decided to let it as a short stay stop over. It could equally be used as a base camp while touring the region.
Here is a little about it and some photos.

Situated in the quiet village of Crevant, opposite the Church, out accommodation offers a welcome rest, a stocked kitchen upon request for your arrival, a drying area for leathers, helmets and boots and a secure lockable motorcycle barn. The dimensions of the barn are 2.1m at it's narrowest point (the entrance), 3.3m and it's widest, total length 7m. The house has central heating and can accommodate up to four people. The bedroom on the ground floor has two single beds. The bedroom upstairs has a double bed (an additional single can be added) if needed. On the ground floor there is a kitchen/diner equipped with a fridge, double electric hob, oven, kettle and coffee maker. A shower room with WC. The house has free wifi (it doesn't have a TV or washing machine). Outside there is a small seating area and entrance to the cellar which also has a bench if you need to escape fro the sun on very hot days. Although the house is non smoking, the courtyard, cellar and motorcycle barn are smoking areas. Please let us know if you are a smoker so we can put ashtrays out.

A few notes on the house.

The oldest part of the house dates from the 15th century and many additions and modifications have been made over the centuries. The church bells chime on the hour and can make you jump, but they don't chime during the night. The doorways are quite low, about 5'10", handy to bear in mind if you're on the taller side. The roof in the cellar is also about 5'10" in the centre, its entrance is lower, so please mind your head.

It's a traditional, and we think, quite charming dwelling, full of history, which we hope would provide some welcome respite for travellers on a long journey.

Pricing

All bedding, towels, shower gel and ladies toiletries are provided along with tea, coffee, sugar and milk.

There is no minimum stay requirement

The following rates are all year round (per night)

1 person 45 euros
2 people 50 euros
3 people 55 euros
4 people 60 euros

Payment via bank transfer in advance for the first night. If you are staying longer, the balance is payable before departure.

To stock the kitchen for an evening meal, snacks and breakfast for each person (if required) would be approximately 10 euros depending on your requirements. Just let us know the kind of things you want . This would be payable on arrival.

We cannot take bank cards, sorry.

A few pictures, as I said earlier it's not quite finished yet. It will be for Easter.

Just waiting on the kitchen units to turn up at the end of the month now.
If anyone wants to share the ad with non zed friends or maybe non PUM's it's now live here
https://www.gites.co.uk/the-travellers-rest/l.1312

The ad has been written for the general public and not geared towards bikers but they'll get an idea.

Thanks for the nice responses. Never know, now that the world is turning the right way up, from a covid point of view at least, we may even get a booking.

Hi Pete

when I see the pictures of your house I realise why you have no time to work on your bikes!
You did a beautiful job, congratulations !

Looks very nice.
Not sorted anything for the summer so will discuss with my wife.

Do you have anywhere we can see where you are already booked up? Or is it email and discuss?

Hi Zebedee, thanks.
At the moment it is very available because it's only just gone live.
Here's a link to a site we're on
https://www.gites.co.uk/the-travellers-rest/l.1312
It shows the calendar for availability at the bottom of the page but come directly to us via email or pm if you or anyone else on here is interested.
Thanks for your interest and kind comments.
Pete
