Accessible properties for people with disabilities

NEWS 

From June 2014 we will have an electric profiling bed available each week. We have negotiated a special price with our supplier so that this bed is available for a price of 30€ per week for any of our guests with mobility issues. 

This is available on a strictly first come first served basis, so where multiple profiling beds are required, the delivery charge of 100€ will also have to be applied for the second bed.

Three of the gites, Gite Le Fournil, Gite Martin and Gite Larose are accessible to guests with mobility difficulties. They include drive in showers, extra wide doors, support bars, lateral access to toilets, and have no steps in these areas.

These gites are designed to be suitable for everyone, allowing every member of the group or family to enjoy a relaxing break whilst providing facilities for people with disabilities.

We have provided an overview of these facilities for each gite but we are also able to hire wheelchairs, hoists and an electric bed from our local pharmacy. Please contact us if you have any specific requirements or queries.

Our beds are 51 cm from the floor to the top of the mattress but we can provide blocks to raise this to 61cm.
