Booking Conditions

  1. The property is offered for holiday rental subject to confirmation by Gites and Villas (representing the owner) to the renter (the client). Should it become necessary to change the proposed number or name of the accommodation for any reason, it will be to a property of a similar size and standard.

  2. The client may book the holiday by e-mail, phone or fax at which time the contract is binding. The client should then complete and return the booking form together with the non-refundable deposit (30% of the total amount due). A receipt of confirmation will be forwarded.

  3. The balance of the total amount is payable not less than eight weeks before the start of the rental period. If payment is not received by the due date, the owner reserves the right to give notice in writing that the reservation is cancelled. The client will remain liable to pay the balance of the holiday. Reservations made within eight weeks of the start of the rental period require full payment at the time of booking.

  4. Any chargeable expenses arising during the rental period (e.g. telephone calls) should be settled locally at reception before departure.

  5. The rental period shall commence at 5.00pm on the first day and finish at 10.00am on the last day. The owner shall not be obliged to offer the accommodation before the time stated and the client shall not be entitled to remain in occupation after the time stated.

  6. The maximum number to reside in the property must not exceed the amount stated in the booking confirmation letter unless the owner has given written permission.

  7. The client agrees to be a considerate tenant and to take good care of the property and to leave it in a clean and tidy condition at the end of the rental period. The client also agrees not to act in any way which would cause disturbance to those resident in the neighbouring properties.

  8. The client shall report to the owner’s agent at reception without delay any defects in the property or breakdown in the equipment, plant, machinery or appliances in the property, or garden, and arrangements for repair and/or replacement will be made as soon as possible.

  9. The owner shall not be liable to the client:

    1. for any temporary defect or stoppage in the supply of public services to the property, nor in respect of any equipment, plant, machinery or appliance in the property or garden.

    2. for any loss, damage or injury which is the result of adverse weather conditions, riot, war, strikes, pests or other matters beyond the control of the owner.

    3. for any loss, damage or inconvenience caused to or suffered by the client if the property shall be destroyed or substantially damaged before the start of the rental period and in any such event, the owner shall, within seven days of notification to the client, refund to the client all sums previously paid in respect of the rental period, if another property is not available.

    4. for any loss, damage or inconvenience caused due to maintenance or building work on nearby or neighbouring properties.

  10. Any amendment or additions to the original booking will be subject to an administration fee.

  11. Under no circumstances shall the owner’s liability to the client exceed the amount paid to the owner for the rental period.
