presume you have another way in to the house or are you locked out ?
Are you in The "Roches" near Chatelus Malveleux ? If so I should be able to pop over to take a look sometime if you haven't been already fixed up. I'm not a locksmith but have 30 years in the building trade including fitting locks & happy to help.
Sorry the weekend is out now but next week is ok , so if you don't get sorted let me know.
The usual suspects lineup: more than once, trying to open a door that didn't move for some time, I discovered after closer inspection a misalignment of latch and strike plate. I almost broke a key when I tried to open such a lock in our own house. Lifting the door with a prybar helped. Sometimes you can reposition the strike plate, but drilling holes very close to the original ones is not a very good idea. A file is a better idea to restore alignment.
