Are you small-child/infant friendly?
Of course. We take every care possible, but please bear in mind we do have animals here and the house and garden is not specifically setup to be child friendly.
Are you wheel-chair accessible?
Unfortunately not at the moment. We have a gravel drive and all the letting rooms are upstairs. We are working on this though and hope to have some news very soon, so watch this space.
Can I bring my dog?
Sorry, we can't accept animals for the moment as we have three dogs, varying numbers of free range chickens and a very large, but very friendly pot bellied pig loose in the garden.
Do you have internet access available for guests ?
We have wireless broadbrand which you are more than welcome to use if you bring your laptop with you.
What time is breakfast served?
Usually between 8:00 - 10:00. Tea and coffee is available all day as are any croissants left over from breakfast ! Earlier breakfasts are available by arrangement.
What is a filling continental Breakfast ?
I try to vary breakfasts with the seasons. As well as yoghurts, cereals and croissants I leave out seasonal fruit from the garden and conserves made from local fruit. At the weekend I also do brunches on request (supplement payable) which include homemade quiches/ flans and gateau. In the winter I can do porridge on request !
Do you do evening meals ?
Yes, but reservations need to be made 24 hours in advance. In the summer, we usually have BBQs at least once a week.
How far are the nearest shops and amenities ?
Viella is very lucky to have shops and a bar/ restaurant within 5-10 mins level walk from the B&B. There are also shops and restaurants in the nearby town of Riscle (10min drive) and a choice of local eateries within a short driving distance.
Do you have a swimming pool?
Yes, we have installed an above ground pool for cooling off in the summer. It's open from May until the end of September. It's not heated so can be a little fresh out of season ! There is also a a superb pool in Viella, less than 5mins walk from us. It's open july and August. Entrance fees in 2010 were 2,00E for adults and 1,00E for children - yes, you read that right !!
Are there other leisure Facilities in Viella ?
There is an area for playing Petanque and Viella also has tennis courts and a fitness course at the other end of the village.
Does Viella have a fête ?
Yes, it is usually the third weekend in July. There is always a course Landaise on the Sunday afternoon. Come and join us! We also have several Bal Musettes throughout the year.Do I need to pay a deposit ?
