Taxe de Séjour / Tourist Tax
This holiday property is located in a commune (village or town) that charges a tourist tax to all paying visitors over the age of 18 years old. The tax helps local communes finance advertising, marketing, events, and initiatives to develop tourism.

The tax is paid per person, per night basis, and the charge varies depending upon whether the property is Classified (Star rated by an official organisation) or not. The charge is typically set between 0.40€ and 4.20€ depending upon where the commune is located and the classification level.

When you go through the booking process, the rental costs shown in the tariff table (per week/night) do not include this tax, this will show as an 'Additional Cost' on the form once you have clicked on 'Continue' after choosing your dates on the calendar.

Initially, the tax will be calculated for all members of your holiday group - including children under 18 years old. Once we receive your completed form, we will revise the total Tourist Tax chargeable to only include the adults in your group. This is a quirk of our booking system as it is only capable to add additional costs for all group members.

The hosts are very welcoming, available and kind. The cottage is very well equipped, very clean, the pool and the games made us and our children happy. Very relaxing place.

We had a great time in your home. Thank you very much for giving us a clean house, clean pool. We are gonna miss this house. We felt like home.

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié ce gîte avec des hôtes sympathiques et attentionnés. Nous n'avons aucune marque sur quoi que ce soit. Peut-être que le vent nous ramènera encore aux poiriers.
(We really appreciated this cottage with friendly and attentive hosts. We don't have a mark on anything. Maybe the wind will bring us back to the pear trees again.)

Merci à Pauline chez Norman pour ce superbe séjour ! Votre logement ne masquait rien d'un superbe séjour, surtout la piscine qui nous a rafraîchi lors des derniers jours de chaleur intense. Bonne chance à toi.
(Thanks to Pauline at Norman for this superb stay! Your lodging masked nothing of a superb stay, especially the swimming pool which refreshed us during the last days of intense heat. Good luck to you.)

(Thank you for the welcome we had a very good weekend with the family)

Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home. The beautiful lights outside when it's dark brightens my day and the thing I am going to miss the most is the large sized pool that refreshed me when it was hot.

Thank you. We really enjoyed staying in your home. It is very beautiful and peaceful. Thank you for the cot bed. House immaculately clean.

Thank you Pauline and Norman for an enjoyable stay. A beautiful gite, good games room and a fabulous swimming pool. Both Pauline and Norman were attentive, helpful and friendly. A well equipped gite for a family of 10. The pool, bbq and outside area is lovely in the evening. We're sad to be leaving especially the kids.

Thank you for a very enjoyable stay in the gite. We took advantage of the pool as the weather was very hot. We would recommend a visit to La Rochelle, Vouvant and Coulon. Pauline was very courteous and attentive but at same time respected our privacy. We had a great holiday.

Merci pour votre accueil, la maison était parfaite. Je ne manquais de rien, vous étiez des hôtes très chaleureux et attentionnés.
