Why Book Direct with the Owner through Chez Nous?

Booking your holiday home direct with the owner offers a whole host of advantages and is becoming an increasingly popular choice for holiday makers.  Here at Chez Nous, we have been listening to property owners and customers for over 25 years and have built up a reputation as being one of the best in the business.  Choice remains a top priority and we continue to offer a huge selection of holiday properties to suit everyone. Our simple to use website has improved search functionality to make finding your perfect holiday home easy and enjoyable.

Value for Money

Booking by email or over the phone direct with the owner can be great value for money as owners can offer much more competitive prices.


One of the great benefits of dealing directly with the owner is the opportunity to find out additional information about a property and its locality.  What better way to discover this information than from those that know first hand.

As property owners do not have to follow guidelines set out by an agency or tour operator, they are much more able to offer flexibility to suit individual customers.  Whether it's arrival and departure times that can be negotiated or arriving a day late to miss the weekend traffic, these are all options that you can discuss at the time of booking.

Home comforts

Many of the book direct properties tend to be second homes for families who use them for their own leisure purposes rather than just a second income, so they are often full of the little home comforts that will make your stay even more special.

The best of both worlds

If you select a property that is signed up to the easybook service you will be able to secure your chosen property by paying a deposit online.  Your selected holiday dates will instantly be displayed as unavailable so they cannot be booked by another Chez Nous customer.  On acceptance of the booking by the owner, we will notify you and the payment will be processed.  The owner will then contact you directly regarding the booking and you can make any arrangements regarding arrival times or key collection as well as ask any additional information about the property or locality.  This offers a superb alternative if you want to make a booking quickly and securely in a hassle free manner.
