Thanks Foxie and Live&Love, that's clarified it for me, we live in France, I'll check with our insurers.

Brandy - I'm the client not the gite owner.

Assuming you have taken out a special "Gite" insurance cover, any minor problems would not be worth taking up with them--considering your "excess"--BUT any damage your clients' might do, you would surely deduct from the security deposit they would have paid you-----you do have security deposits don't you!?--every Gite owner we know does.

If you live outside France then you would claim for your possessions on your travel insurance. if you live in France then you would provide all receipts to your own insurance to claim back

The gite owners would be very unlikely to have cover for this because if you live in France this would normally be covered by your multirisques house insurance. In fact normally they require you to have insurance to cover any to their property while you're there.

If you don't live in France and you wanted to be insured, you'd need to arrange it.
