End-of-stay cleaning is included.
Tenants are asked to leave the house properly, inside and outside, otherwise special cleaning costs are charged
(at € 15,00/hour).
Damage deposit (damage, breakages): € 500,00 per week
(refund within 2 weeks after departure if no damages,
spoiled or broken items).
To secure a booking, the renters financial commitment is an initial
reservation deposit of 40% of the rental price which is due within 7 days of making the reservation. Upon receipt of the reservation deposit, we mark the reservation on our calendar.
The damage deposit to cover accidental damage is to be paid along with the cost for the end of let cleaning and the balance (60%
of the rental price), 6 weeks prior to your arrival date.
Reservations made within 6 weeks of the arrival date require full payment (rental fee, cost for the end of let cleaning, damage deposit) in one stage, within 7 days of making the reservation.
The damage deposit is refunded asap, always within 30 days of vacating, less the cost for replacement or repair breakages and/or damage, if any.
A cancellation is a dreaded situation for an owner, especially the last-minute kind. Cancellation by the renter, or even any changes made to a reservation that would result in a shortened stay, may
result in a penalty: the forfeit of all payments of rent made up to that point. However, we think building goodwill is generally a good practice. So if we are able to re-book the dates for the full amount, we refund your money, less a € 25 administrative fee. We consider this is as a clear and a sound cancellation policy.
Unless other arrangments made: letting only by week, bookings running from Saturday to Saturday, arrival time as from 4 pm, departure by 10 am. A saturday on the calendar can have a double colour code: or as a changeover day, or as the
day of changing prices...

The Gard Department (30, capital Nîmes) forms together with four other departments [ le Lozère (48, Mende),
l'Hérault (34, Montpellier), l'Aude (11, Carcassonne)
and les Pyrénées Orientales (66, Perpignan) ]
the Languedoc-Roussillon Region.
Le Canal du Rhône à Sète runs through the southern part of the Gard Department. Down in the southern corner is la Petite Camargue,
toward to the Golfe du Lion, where la Mer Méditerranée (Mediterranean) is turning landinward.
To the west of the Gard, the national parc of the Cevennes (Parc National des Cévennes) is defined within
the triangle Millau-Mende-Alès.
In the east you'll find la Provence.

One of the most
beautiful and unspoilt in all of France is the Cévennes
region. Alès is regarded like la capitale des Cévennes,
la Porte des Cévennes. Les Vallées Cévenoles - a part of the Massif Central - are close! A region for hiking, mountainbiking..., as if it was into your backyard.
Discover the region with le train à vapeur des Cévennes (Anduze -
S-E. Asia near Anduze:La Bambouseraie de Prafrance, very special.
You can drive to le Mont Aigoual (1567 m.), in France the last manned station de
météo de montagne. By its geographical position and if the weather conditions are
excellent, one can see le Mont Ventoux, le Mont Blanc and les Alpes,
(at about 70 km) and les Pyrenées.
Other miracles of nature
▪ In the Ardèche Department (07), after the
Pont d'Arc, a 60 m high natural
rock arch, the river Ardèche carves its path through les
Gorges de l'Ardèche, deep gorges enclosed by 300 m cliffs and forms meanders punctuated by rapids.
In this department, you can also visit l'Aven d'Orgnac,
the only cave in France recompensed with the honorary title Grand Site de France.
▪ On the border of the Hérault Department (34) with the Gard Department (30), glacial erosion formed about 3
million years ago le Cirque de Navacelles,
a valley in which the river Vis sharpened a horseshoe formed lake. The lake dried as the river Vis left the
original stream bed and, after a complete bend, steeply falls into a water-fall. You can reach the small village of Navacelles in the valley easily.
▪ The nearest Mediterranean beaches, reached
in less more than 1 hour from LES OLIVES...
You can get to the Golfe du Lion, Mer Méditerranée (see map above)
or to La Grande Motte or
on the 7 km long beaches in Palavas-les-Flots. This trip is simply combinable with Le Grau-du-Roi and its yachting port Port-Camargue; with
Aigues-Mortes, a striking, walled Medieval town sitting on the flat marshes of la Petite Camargue; or with Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer.
▪ Do you prefer a local river? The river
le Gardon d'Anduze flows only a few kilometer away (indicated as Gardon de St.-Jean on the map above). In the small village Ners,
10 km away, le Gardon d'Anduze meets le Gardon d'Alès, now is called the Gardon river (the Gard River, namesake
of the Gard Department, does not actually exist under this name). Near Vers-Pont du Gard the Roman aquaduct Pont du Gard, today
one of France's top five tourist attractions, is crossing the Gardon river, further ending in the Rhône river at Beaucaire.
And don't forget the classified natural site of
les Cascades de Sautadet (waterfalls on the Cèze river) near La Roque sur Cèze...
There are hundreds of vineyards (wineries) in the Languedoc-Roussillon region.
Most of them make good wine, mainly rose and red. We suggest you to buy
wine at the vineyard, where you can have free tastings, rather than at supermarkets. Vignerons de la Porte des Cévennes
