Our rental rates are in Euros. You can get a pretty good idea of the current equivalent in your own currency by using the “Convert Currency” drop-down just above the table. We accept payment in Euros or UK Pounds* only.
Of course, you can settle in Euros any way you like but we recommend TransferWise as they offer the best rates and charge a very low commission of less than 0.4%. You can also pay them using a credit or debit card. You will certainly get a much better exchange rate than from your bank. The Euro amounts paid to us must be as invoiced, so type the invoiced amount into the Euro box “Recipient will get exactly”, not the “You send” box; your selected currency equivalent will be automatically displayed. You do need to open an account but it is very straightforward and safe and once you have done it the first time you will never transfer money abroad any other way!
Our rental period is normally Saturday 16:00 to Saturday 10:00. Our rates include bed linen and towels, UK satellite TV, dedicated internet, utilities and heating.
The rates in the table are for one week (7 nights). Additional weeks are each €50 per week less.
To use the "Book Now" panel top right, enter your required dates. If these are available you will be taken to an enquiry/booking form. To get an accurate quote select any applicable "additional charges" - but some are discounts! You can select...
- Second week discount of €50 for a two week booking
- Third week discount of a further €50 for a three week bookings
- Master bedroom couples-only discount of €40 (conditions apply, please see below)
- Fifth adult in your party (please see below)
- Sixth adult in your party (please see below)
This form is for your convenience, intended to give a good indication of the cost of your booking but it is not contractually binding. If you select inappropriate discounts they will not be honoured. Please note the system does not currently calculate the 25% booking deposit accurately when these options are selected but the total should be accurate. You will be sent a Booking Confirmation & Invoice showing the correct amount.
Rental rates are for the entire property.

* You may, if you prefer, pay in UK Pounds. The amounts will be converted using the interbank exchange rate quoted by TransferWise for each stage of your payment, the Booking Deposit on the day the invoice is sent and the Final Payment 35 days prior to your arrival date. We cannot fix the exchange rate applicable at the time of booking until the final payment date.
The property is intended to accommodate a maximum of six guests, which may be a mix of persons aged 18 and over (adults) and 17 or under (minors). The rates quoted are for up to four adults and two minors (or e.g. two adults and up to four minors). For parties of more than four adults there is an additional charge of €170 per week per adult. To put this into context, our minimum rates are approximately €25 per adult guest per night, much cheaper than any good B&B or hotel nearby. For a booking for four, five or six adults your party will all pay the same low rate of around €25 per night per adult. Guests aged 17 or younger on the date of arrival are included in the basic rates but, as do pubs etc., we reserve the right to see proof of age should the situation warrant it. A baby sleeping in a cot will not be considered a "guest" for these purposes.
Out of the high summer season, on a one week booking we offer a reduction of €40 for couples requiring only the master bedroom. This is not applicable if a pet is included in the party.
La Goupillère is also suitable for shorter stays and, depending on the make-up of your party, our rates are very competitive with and usually much cheaper than hotels or B&B anywhere in the area. You may of course stay for as short a period as you like but we feel that four or five nights is the minimum that makes economic sense. Apart from the master bedroom only reduction of €40 our minimum rate is for one week... but you get so much more!
There is a small Tourist Tax (Taxe de Séjour) payable by all visitors aged 18 or over who stay in accommodation (hotels, gîtes, B&B, campsites, etc.) For La Goupillère, which is a "high-end" 4 star property, this is currently €0,70 per person per night and is remitted by us to The Communauté de Communes des Coëvrons, which includes our Commune.
