Internal rules of La Pénesais
Welcome to La Pénesais !
It is a real pleasure to welcome you here.
La Pénesais has 2 cottages, so you may come across other visitors during your stay. We invite you to take advantage of the living spaces at your disposal, in a friendly and respectful environment. To do this, here are some simple rules that we invite you to share:
Your arrival: It should normally take place between 5 and 7 p.m. Arrivals outside these time slots are possible but must be agreed in advance.
Your departure: Must be no later than 10 a.m. We need time to guarantee future visitors the best possible welcome. Before leaving the premises, make sure you have not forgotten anything.
Your cottage :
For the respect of everyone, animals are not allowed in our cottages. However, we love animals. You will undoubtedly meet LOUSTIC, our Golden Retriever female dog. She is lovely, very fond of our visitors, especially the children, but she can be a little “sticky”. So she may try to get into your cottage. Please push her away kindly. Indeed, some of our guests are sometimes allergic to dog hair.
In accordance with decree No. 2006-1386 of November 15, 2006, it is strictly forbidden to smoke in the interior space of the house. Ashtrays are available outside. Please use them.
In the toilets, do not throw any waste other than toilet paper. Several trash cans are available in the house.
We invite you to take the best care in decorating and fitting out this house, which we wanted to make as welcoming as possible. The tenant agrees to return the lodge in perfect condition, to declare and assume financial responsibility for any possible degradation or major soiling for which he may be responsible. An inventory is carried out at the beginning and at the end of the stay.
Access to the wifi network is free. The name of the network and the access code are indicated in the gîte. Illegal downloading is prohibited.
Be sure to respect the tranquility of the other occupants of La Pénesais: to do this, avoid using your mobile phone or music device outside your apartment.
Heating: During the heating period, the thermostat has been set and positioned before your arrival: do not change its place and do not modify the setting. If needed call us. For information, apart from the winter period (October to March), heating is optional and is subject to additional billing.
Terraces and outdoor spaces :
Your safety :
The car park is private, reserved for guests of La Pénesais. It is closed and unguarded. Any visitors must imperatively park outside the property.
For those of our visitors who travel the “Loire à vélo”, or who have personal or rental bikes, your bikes must be parked in the barn, located in the garden. (for more information on bikes, see the page “biking at La Pénesais“).
We invite you not to leave valuables inside the house. Inside and outside, the management declines all responsibility in the event of disappearance or theft.
If you were to open or close the gate, a few precautions should be taken. In fact, this monumental gate is over a century old and each gate weighs more than 500 kg. It is therefore to be handled with care, slowly, lifting the central stand (on the right door) well during the maneuver, and avoiding it “slamming”.
Eco-Tourism Approach :
La Pénesais is committed to a sustainable eco-tourism approach. We are counting on you to support us in this process for the protection of our environment and the safeguard of our planet. Read more on the page “Eco-Tourism Approach“.
- Avoid unnecessary lights

Before leaving :
- Close the garbage bags and place them outside at door of your cottage.
- Empty the dishwasher.
