Breathalysers now required in your car

Breathalysers now required
As of today French law dictates that all motorists should have two NF approved breathalysers in your car. The penalty for being found without them is 11€, although this is apparently being waived until November. Here is the list of things you need to have in your car:

WHAT YOU NEED TO DRIVE IN FRANCE
• Anyone driving in France is required to carry a warning triangle and a fluorescent safety vest to use in an emergency. If a motorist carries the luminous vest in their boot rather than the main section of the car they can still be fined.
• British motorists must display a GB plate and have their headlights adjusted to the right.
• Drivers are not obliged to carry a spare set of lights, but if one of their bulbs goes and they do not have a replacement ready they can be fined.
• A fire extinguisher and first aid kit could also be required in the case of an emergency so not to fall foul of a law about assisting in the event of an accident.
• In January 2012 the French introduced a new law banning satellite navigation systems that show the location of speed cameras. Those caught can be fined 1,500 euros even if the device is not in use
• As of July 1st, 2012 you are required to have two NF approved breathalysers in your car.

Satnav and iPod docks now available

Satnav now available to borrow
We have just added an iPod dock to the stereo system so that you can now charge and listen to your iPod whilst downstairs, as well as in both bedrooms. This dock will also allow you to listen to music on your iPad too, although it can't charge it at the same time.

In addition we now have available a portable satnav for your use, loaded with some of the best tourist destinations in the area. We do ask you to sign a form taking responsibility for it but other than that it is there for your use throughout your stay with us!

La Source Tranquille - sur le site www.gites-oise.com

La Source Tranquille
Notre gîte a figuré dans un article sur le site de Oise Tourisme - vous pouvez voir l'original ici.

Un 4 épis deluxe

De l'espace, de la détente et de la paix. Voilà résumé ce nouveau 4 épis ouvert non loin de Beauvais.

Prisé des parisiens et des citadins en recherche de calme, ce nouveau gîte vous accueille à Mouy dans un cadre chaleureux et paisible. En arrivant, vous serez charmés. Ce n'est pas pour rien que les propriétaires lui ont donné le nom de "La Source tranquille". Non loin de représenter l'essence de cet hébergement, vous pourrez effectivement vous délecter près de la source qui traverse le grand jardin. Ici, on entend bien les oiseaux chanter, il y a de la place pour ranger ses vélos et même pour faire une partie de ping-pong.

Une fois entrés dans cet ensemble digne des maisons bourgeoises d'antan, vous accèderez au gîte. Le salon au rez-de-chaussée ainsi que la cuisine équipée sont dotés de tout le confort nécessaire, voire, plus que nécessaire. A l'étage, les chambres sont décorées avec goût et simplicité, les lits sont si confortables que vous pourriez y passer toutes vos journées. Ici, tout est fourni, linge y compris.
L'amour des propriétaires anglais pour cette terre et ce lieu vous seront transmis si fortement que vous transmettrez aussi autour de vous, leur joie de vivre
