Interaction with guests
As much as I would like to meet all guests, it is not possible....I live in Norway, but the apartment rental is organized so that it of course is being regularly supervised and professionally cleaned between each stay. An English-spoken manager will help and assist you if that is needed. I will provide a detailed manual for the apartment 1 week prior to check-in.
I respond quickly to mobile phone calls/sms or mail in case of questions or emergencies, before, during and after your stay.
Other things to note
Please keep in mind that this is an apartment centrally located in the old town, surrounded by restaurants, cafés and bars. Musicians may sometimes play in the streets, especially during summer time - I think it gives the surroundings the real french atmosphere! In weekends and during certain holidays and ceremonies, there will of course be what some will characterize
as noise. However, all bedrooms (except sleeping alcove in living room) have windows towards the quiet courtyard - but we can not guarantee the most sound-sensitive guests a completely quiet apartment if windows are open.
In many areas of the apartment, we have chosen to keep the old rustique ceiling for the atmosphere and charm. This old wood contains some small grains of sand, that will fall down over time. This dust is not to be considered as dirt, and even though we do cleaning regularly, you may experience some of this fallen debris some places.
That is also the case on the terrace. As it is not roofed, some debris as leaves or birds feathers may occur.
I appreciate that you leave the apartment in the condition you want to find it; intact and tidy. I expect that you leave the things and furniture were they belong.
Please clean tables and benches and swipe the floors with the vacuum cleaner before the end of your stay. We will wash all floors and clean bathrooms and sanitary items. Before leaving, please put all towels and bedsheets in a pile on the floor in the washing room.
If you want to party, there are many possibilities in town, please not in the apartment. Please keep sound levels down, especially on the terrace. Pay attention to open windows if you play music, especially evening/nighttime. No activity on the terrace before 09h and after 22h, of respect to neighbors who want to sleep.
Animal-lovers and smokers are very welcome, but no pets or smoking inside allowed.
Please do not throw any sanitary items in the WC, sanitary bins are provided for this.
Please leave shoes at the front door when entering, we appreciate that you don't wear outdoor shoes inside the apartment.
Maison Angeville is not a hotel, but a home - I want you to treat it as such - and even more; enjoy it as if it was your home :)
Bienvenue à Annecy!
