If you would like to have somebody come in during your holiday to clean the house we can try and arrange this for you. Details available at the time of booking. We can also arrange for cakes for special celebrations and for a chef to come and prepare meal(s) for you.
Las Razes has been created from a lovely old farm. This main gite was originally the main animal barn, the cottage previously (see property 1098 on this site) was the farm house and our home was previously accommodation for man and beasts before becoming ruined and then converted into our home. Each property enjoys privacy and space. We can be found if you have a problem during your stay but are far enough away to leave you in perfect peace. The cottage and the main gite (barn) offer individual private space but when they are booked together we can open a door in a wall to easily run the two properties together.
