Here is chapter and verse if you have the stomach for it.
In summary there are many nuances of interpretation ("jour ouvrable" for example is strangely different for a "particulier" than it is for an "entreprise"). But generally, the allowed hours are 8h30-12h00 and 14h30-19h30 if the work is being done by an individual or from 7h00 till 19h00 if the work is being done by a company.

There are rules, you need to check with local mairie. & then decide whether just & note in the letter box will do or send the Garde Municipale. Probably between 6am & 22 pm & 9-12 14 -17 w/e ?if they don't keep the set hours in your commune, they can be obliged &/or fined
also depending if you are in a lotissement, there may be specific rules, ex. NO building work in July &/or August.However, you will have to live with these neighbours. it is unfortunate but will be over sooner or later. After all, everyone makes noise when they build or renovate, chacun son tour !
