Polfages is ideal if you just want to sit by the pool and relax taking in the stunning views or if you want to make the most of you time in the region. With the beach just over an hour away and the mountains the same you can truly get the best of both types of holiday. A few other things to think about for your holiday. One of the reasons we love living at Polfages is that Sundays are still see as a day to spend with the family and as such there are very few supermarkets open. Those that are open close at around 7.30 on Saturday evening and only open on Sunday morning . Because our guest may not be able to get their 1st shopping due of arrivals times, we offer our guest the chance to have their 1st shopping done for them. Just email us a list of shopping you what you would like us to get for you and for 5 Euros we will have it ready and way for when you get here. Please remember that not all items are not the same in France and some specific English items maybe quite expensive or unobtainable. We want our guests to have a great holiday with us and sometimes that means that they do not want to cook or are planning to be out all day and would rather have something prepared for them. Because of this, we offer a number of different options to our guests. Starting with pizza's, hand made and cooked in our own pizza oven. Each pizza is made with your toppings in mind and should be enough for 2 people and cost 9 euros. Twice a week to offer our guests a pre set menu depending on what’s seasonal and in the garden and also our guests personal requirements. We offer either a starter and main course or main course and desert/cheese for 15 Euros or starter, main desert/cheese for 18 euros. All our meals are made to order for you with ingredients where possible sourced from our own vegetable patch or soft fruit garden so they can not be any fresher. Our chickens produce all the eggs we need. We are more than happy for children to help pick the veg and fruit that they will be eating that evening, allowing them to really enter into the spirit of the holiday. If we can not grow the ingredients we will source them from the local farmers markets making sure the we are supporting the region and its growers and giving you the best of the regions produce. If you are with us for 2 weeks or enjoying a 2 destination holiday you may wish to make us of our laundry service to make your stay easier or just making going home and the thought of washing and ironing already done. The charge is 10 euros per load and an ironing service for an additional 5 euros. More
