Other things to note
Please contact us at least one day prior to arrival so we can make sure the place is ready to welcome you.
Check-in before 1900hrs if possible, it makes things so much simpler for both you and us.
However, it's always possible to accommodate late arrivals! :-)
It happens that we receive overlapping inquiries. We always give priority to the first inquiry. We are also very prompt to reply (within a few hours at worst). However, it happens that, after replying, we do not receive a response: when that happens, if we do not get an answer within 48 hours, we consider the enquirer is not interested anymore and we will deal with the next in line.
Small dogs welcome: no other pets please, especially not cats (allergies). No smoking.
Apart from this, welcome home !

We love to tour Europe and discover new places. We found this little town of Barr, loved it and decided to invest in a pied-à-terre.
