General terms and conditions


The prices advertised include breakfast and VAT.

They do not include an accommodation tax of 0,55 € per person per night (as of 1st January 2020) which is payable on arrival and passed directly on to the government.

For reasons of security linked to the river and the swimming pool we are not able to welcome children under the age of 14.

Animals are not allowed.


Reservations can be made on our website, by telephone, by email or on our partner websites.

Your bankcard details will serve as a guarantee of reservation although nothing will be charged. The bill will only be paid on departure.

If no card is used or in exceptional circumstances (bookings of multiple rooms or bookings of more than 3 nights) a deposit of 50% of the total amount will be asked for in advance in order to guarantee the reservation.

In all circumstances, reservations will only be guaranteed by our written confirmation.

Means of payment

Payment may be made in cash, by cheque, by bank transfer and with Visa, Mastercard and American Express. Possible bank transfer charges are to be paid by the client.


The timing of your cancellation (by email or by post) will involve the following penalty charges:

  • Receipt of your cancellation more than 14 days before your arrival date: no charge.
  • Receipt of your cancellation 14 days or less before your arrival date: 50% of the total cost of your stay.
  • Receipt of your cancellation 8 days or less before your arrival date or your non-arrival (from 7pm): the total cost of your stay.

A shortened stay will be billed at 50% for the remaining nights booked (with a minimum of one night’s stay charged at the full rate).

If, in exceptional circumstances, the Chateau des Grotteaux is forced to cancel your stay an alternative solution will be suggested and any monies already paid will be reimbursed in full.

If your reservation is made through one of our partner sites it is their cancellation conditions that will apply.
