  1. You should note that the law in France requires owners of hospitality accommodation to have requested each individual guest to complete a form with details of passport number, date of birth, full names and maiden name. This data is kept by us securely for 6 months (as required by French law) and never given to a third party, unless we are required to do so by the French police.

  1. Please note: At Gone Fishin your safety and security are very important to us. We have two security cameras on our property. These are targeted at our entrance gate and garage. They do not point to any private areas of your Gite accommodation (including your garden). These cameras act as a deterrent. All footage is on a loop turnaround and automatically deletes in 8 to 10 days. No footage is stored indefinitely.
