For your holiday at Les Taloches we have tried to provide everything for your comfort and a really relaxed vacation. We have our very own free range hens supplying guests with fresh eggs and for bookings of 7 nights or more, we provide a welcome hamper and bottle of regional wine.
- Bedding and towels
We provide bed linen (100% Egyptian cotton sheets, cotton & wool blankets) plus bath & hand towels, but please bring your own pool towels (although these can be hired for a nominal fee if you would like to save space in your luggage). Beds will be made up for your arrival. Bed linen and towels are changed weekly for longer stays.
We are happy to accommodate children of all ages. We have cots with bedding, high chairs, bed-guards, a microwave steriliser, stair gates, baby monitor, anti-slip bath mats, children’s cutlery, plates and some suitable toys/books available for young children. For slightly older children there is a big play area away from the houses, a large sandpit, seesaw, swings, climbing frame, boules’ pitch, badminton court as well as acres of land to explore. There are bicycles in all sizes to borrow (no helmets though) and cycle tracks all round the property.
- Communal areas
Set within the lime-tree shaded courtyard, a barn has been created into a shared games room with table tennis, darts and table football. There are numerous bikes, trikes and toys to keep our younger guests happy. Secluding the houses are fields and woodlands where you can stroll in the shade of the woods or borrow a map of local walks. There is a covered summer kitchen with a barbecue for you to use instead of your own private barbecue if you wish. Meals can be arranged on request. There are a number of fruit trees in the gardens including the famous Mirabelle Prune (small, firm yellow/red plum) and fresh herbs dotted around – please help yourself!
La Grange has central heating and a large open fire. La Chataigne has electric radiators and 2 inglenook fireplaces (1 of which is a stove). For stays in our cooler months, wood is provided for your use. There are fans in all the bedrooms.
Les Taloches consists of 3 houses, La Châtaigne, La Grange and our home which is discreetly tucked away behind our huge barn. Each house has its own entrance, parking area, garden and pool.
We provide artisan French guest soap in each toilet/bathroom and in the kitchens Le Petit Marseillais antibacterial hand soap.
- Cleaning products

- Cleaning during and at the end of your stay
To ensure you all have a good vacation, mid-week cleaning can be arranged for an additional charge (from €20 per hr). Please note that on departure the property must be left clean and tidy.
