Rules of Conduct
For your stay, and for the people who come after you, we thank you in advance for not smoking inside the house, and ask you to abide by the few pointers below.
Thank you for using the wooden plank for your cooking.
Use of beds
Never use duvets and pillows without covers.
Feel free to request additional pillows, if necessary. They will be provided free of charge.
Thank you for not eating in the bedroom.
Use of Toilet
Ladies, it is IMPERATIVE that you NEVER throw your sanitary napkins and tampons in the toilet. Our sewers and septic tanks are absolutely not designed for this use!
A big thank you for using the trash!
A recycling bin is located under the kitchen sink.
In the country, it is easy to compost. A compost bin is located on the kitchen countertop. When full, you can empty it into our compost pile near the vegetable garden!
Life on the farm
The farm is a wonderful discovery area for children, but can also be, a place full of danger.
For their safety, do not let your children walk close to the animals unattended.
Because of cohabitation issues with our herd and dogs, pets are not allowed.
Water, as life itself, is precious! Our tap water is safe to drink. It comes from an artesian well dug near our house. Kindly use it within reason.
Also, we ask that you be environmentally responsible when using electrical appliances and lighting; not excessively heating every room or turning on all the lights. Similarly, when you go out, please turn off the lights.
If you are not familiar with wood stoves, be careful! Ask us for a hand.
In the dry season, the danger of fire is everywhere, please pay close attention to the barbecue embers and, and, in windy conditions, do not turn it on. It is absolutely forbidden to light a fire at any site on the property and the surrounding area.
Concerning noise: The first, and most important, rule is simply the use of common sense regarding respect for others. Avoid excessive noise or other nuisances, especially at night.
The following points must be observed:
- fridge and freezer emptied and cleaned.
- Cleaned stovetop and oven.
- Dishes cleaned and put away.
- Coffee maker, kettle and barbecue emptied and cleaned.
- Emptied and cleaned trash.
- Emptied and cleaned compost bin.
- Beds: folded sheets and duvets on the beds.
- Bedroom: garbage emptied.
- Bathroom: bin emptied, toilet bowl cleaned.
- General cleaning: vacuuming (a vacuum cleaner is available)
- Replenish the supply of wood for the woodstove, if needed.
In general, we ask that the immediate surroundings are clean and in order. Please do not leave cigarette butts, papers, etc…, lying around.
While understanding that it can be irritating to be told what would seem to be the obvious concerning the proper maintenance of a place, we, unfortunately, also know from experience, that it is sometimes a necessity!
We simply ask that you take care of the house as if it were your own!
We wish you a pleasant stay in our guesthouse and invite you to leave a message in the guestbook..
