Important Points

  • For everybody’s comfort and safety, La Maison de la Vielle Vigne has a strict NO SMOKING policy.
  • To lock the front door or the French doors you need to yank the door handle firmly upwards in order to be able to lock it with your key.
  • The circuit board and breaker is in the utility room just off the courtyard – opens with the house key.  Please familiarize yourselves with this right away so that you can find it in the event of a power outage (and in the dark!).  More info on how to reset a circuit breaker in this binder. 
  • We have garden furniture stored in the utility room.  Please store the furniture in there again before your departure. 
  • If you hear a thunder storm coming, completely unplug the internet box - and your computer if you have one plugged in - from the wall power, and also unplug the TV and DVD/VCR plugs and cables.
  • The skylight in the bathroom has both an opaque and a black shade that you can draw down at any time.  They are built right into the wooden frame of the skylight.
  • There is one wall-mounted command per room to regulate the heat in that room - the individual command on the radiators or the towel warmer in the bathroom are disabled.
  • The shower doors are delicate, make sure to use the doors at the handle level to open and close them gently – merci.
  • To lock the shutters in an “open” positions, there are little metal hooks mounted on the walls outside that you flip to secure them.  If it is very hot and you want to keep the house as cool as possible, keep the shutters closed during the warmest part of the day.
  • Please enjoy the books we have left for your enjoyment during your stay with us.  If you have any books that you have read and don’t want to take home with you, we are always delighted to accept “donations” to our library. 
  • Please sign our Guest Book before you leave we always love to hear about your impressions and adventures.  You’ll find it in the green metal holder to the left of the fire place.
