Please read carefully before making a booking. Thank you.

Our General Terms & Conditions set out the basis on which the B&B LA FERME DE TAYAC will provide accommodation and other products and services to our Customers and Guests. By making a Booking the guests agree to comply with these Conditions.

Please inform yourself about additions and currently valid adjustments before your arrival.


LA FERME DE TAYAC offers accommodation in a private house as a Bed & Breakfast. Pleas bear in mind: we are not a hotel.

You will surely enjoy the small number of rooms and the high number of additional services which are hardly to find in other B&B`s.

The Rooms

The cosy decorated bedrooms at LA FERME DE TAYAC offer double beds at maximum for 2 (two) persons. Two rooms are changeable to twin beds.


All bedrooms are equipped with en-suite bathrooms which means they all have a private shower, wash basin and toilet in the bedroom.


All rooms are equipped with bed linen and towels.

The rooms are at maximum for two (2) persons only (children or adults). In some rooms a folding baby bed could be placed. One baby bed (only) can be made available for one (1) child up to 1,5years old. This is only valid on prior agreement.


Any undeclared person (child, adult) will be refused. In this case and if there is still a room available for the booked period, we might propose it as additional room for the person not declared by booking. The price of this room will come with the standard rate.

In case of agreement, the full balance of your stay will have to be paid immediately.

If you disagree, we will not be able to accommodate you at LA FERME DE TAYAC, the balance will be due immediately and your deposit will be lost.


Please do not eat in the rooms. You will find enough places to have a meal in the two lounges in the house and in the garden. Please note that guests are paying for any damage they cause.

You can prepare tea at any time with the tea equipment provided in the rooms for your stay. Please drink your tea only at the table in your room or in one of the public areas of the B&B.

In any case, please avoid causing stains. You will be held financially responsible for any stains or damage of any kind.

Arriving and leaving - Check-in / Check-out time

To give us enough time to clean intensely and make your bedroom feel homely the check-in time is between 4pm local time and 7pm local time, unless a different time has been agreed. Earlier arrival is generally not possible. If you need to arrive later, please let us know. If we are not informed in advance of your arrival later than 7pm, we cannot guarantee our availability.

If agreed before arrival you could put down your luggage in the house in one of the two lounges from 12 noon. It cannot be guaranteed that luggage will be supervised. We therefore accept no responsibility for this.

Please free up the room at the latest at 10am local time on your departure day. Thank you for your understanding that any later freeing up room would cause additional cost to you. You could put down your luggage in the house and pick it up later the day. For the time of collection of your luggage, please consult our availability.

Room and Building Facilities

For any inconvenience related to your room and equipment in and around the house we thank you for letting us know as soon as possible.


It is common sense that any damage caused to the rooms, its objects and equipment or/and the property will be paid for in full by the tenant. This can be amongst others any breakages, stains, spillages, damage to furniture or fixtures and fittings. You are asked to address any damages and report it as soon as possible to minimise damage and associated costs.


Some of the furnishings are very old, valuable and partly non-replaceable items such as furniture, lamps, crockery, etc. In case of damage, you are obliged to pay the financial value for the replacement in this or at least similar form and age before your departure. Please note that in some cases this may involve several items, even if they are not damaged, if they form an ensemble. This is the case, for example, with crockery and pairs of lamps.

Please inform us immediately of any damage before your departure. If we have to discover them ourselves after your departure, we will charge an additional amount of 100€ for the cost of replacement.

The easiest way is to avoid the damage and to be very respectful of our facilities.

On your arrival, we will provide you a key with a specific key fob which allows you to access the house, garden and the room.

All key fobs are individual, and some are unique.

We work for sustainable tourism

You are invited to safe energy, water, mitigate any waste as much as possible and help for waste separation. There is an extra bin beside the fridge on the ground floor for your recyclables. There is also a small plastic container for compostable waste.

You can support us in this by using the linen of our house in a considerate way.
We also ask you to actively help us save energy. Switch off lamps that are not needed. In general, turn off all lights and unneeded electrical appliances when you leave your room.
Please use water sparingly as a natural resource.

However, we will do our best to make sure your stay will be as comfortable as possible and your vacations at LA FERME DE TAYAC will become a real highlight of your life.


In the context of sustainable tourism, in order to limit water evaporation from the pool, we close the pool at night between 9 pm and 9.30 am, depending on the temperature and weather conditions.

The pool is equipped with an alarm system, which you can deactivate with the code you receive from us. Any manipulation other than the use of the code is strictly prohibited. In the event of an offence, you will lose the right to stay in our hotel.

The alarm system emits a loud, repetitive acoustic signal in the event that a person is in the pool without having entered the code. Please note that this signal only has a certain strength and its audible range can vary due to wind, etc. A signal can mean that a person needs help. Please react appropriately in the event of a signal. Thank you very much.

We use a pool robot for regular cleaning of the pool. Please note: When the pool robot is in the water, it is strictly forbidden for people to be in the water.

We thank you for your understanding that we cannot allow you to use your private air conditioning units. Some fans etc. are available for a rental fee. Please only use these devices when you are in your room.
