Our prices include utilities and heating, hot water, etc. for the normal enjoyment of the property by the party members named on the BCI. There are however some specific circumstances where we will charge a fee.
C1. Electric & Hybrid Vehicles (updated 2023)
The property is not equipped with specialised vehicle charging facilities. The charging of electric or hybrid vehicles is not permitted but this aside only low amperage charging would be possible with extremely long charge-times, Level 1 and 15 amps maximum. As with all rural properties, the supply (9 kVA in this case), more the adequate for the contents of the house, cannot cope with the added load of fast-charging electric vehicles and upgrading would be prohibitively expensive. There are commercial Level 2 and 3 fast-charging stations in Bais (8km), and four locations in Villaines la Juhel (11 to 12km).
In the event of such vehicles being connected to our electricity supply we will charge a service fee of 20€ per connection and you will be held responsible for any and all damage or issues arising from connection of electric vehicles to the supply. You must notify us in writing at least 14 days prior to arrival, but preferably at the time of booking, if you or any party members are travelling in an electric or hybrid vehicle (unless it is 100% self-charging and incapable of being externally charged). The property, like most, has a "Linky" smart meter and usage is continuously monitored and recorded.
The charging of electric scooters or hoverboards is prohibited.
The charging of electric bikes is permitted but only with our explicit prior approval, for which we will charge the cost of electricity (only).
C2. Caravans & Mobile Homes
The parking of your own or your visitors RVs, caravans, mobile homes or similar at the property is permitted only with our prior agreement, for which we may charge. Connection to any utilities is permitted only with our prior agreement, for which we may charge. There must be absolutely no discharge of tanks or waste material at or anywhere near the property or a charge of 100€ will apply. Unless expressly agreed prior to booking, La Goupillère guests named on the Booking Confirmation must stay in the house overnight. If you travel here in a camper van of any kind or bring a caravan it must be used for transport only, not as accommodation whilst on site.
