Regarding cleaning please leave the apartment clean and tidy with all items returned to where you found them. If any item is broken or there are any maintenance issues please mention them at the earliest opportunity to the Concierge. A text message is sufficient.
Regarding the drainage system, as with many French rural properties, the building has its own sceptic tanks and is not connected into a mains sewage system. The tanks will not take anything other than soft toilet paper, human waste and washing/washing up water. They will be blocked by cooking fat, sanitary towels and other unmentionables. These blockages are very expensive to fix and can result in the apartment being put out of use. Please ensure all your guests are aware of and respect these requirements. Thank you.
