If the booking request is made within 8 weeks of the visit, the full amount (rental charge + security deposit) is due upon booking.

GBP security deposits will be held  in and refunded from a UK bank account.  In the event of any EUR deductions being required, a conversion for that amount will be applied at the end of your stay. 

Refundable Security Deposit

The security deposit covers breakages, losses and damage to the property or its contents, and any cost of clean-up should the property be left in an unreasonable state.

The net security deposit will be refunded within two  weeks of the end of the holiday.

If you must cancel your holiday for whatever reason, your non-refundable deposit will be forfeited.  If written notice is received 8 weeks prior to the holiday start date, you will be not be liable for the balance of the rental. 

However, if notice of cancellation is received less than 8 weeks prior to the commencement date you will be liable for the full rental charge. 

Cancellation by us

In the unlikely event that we are obliged to make any substantial changes to your holiday, or cancel it, we will provide a full refund.

Liabilities

Each property has a private entrance and keys are provided upon arrival.  Guests should be aware that there is shared access to some facilities (e.g. laundry, bike storage and garden).

All personal items, including baggage, bikes and skis are at all times and circumstances at the owner's risk and we are at no time responsible for any loss or damage to such items. 

We are not liable for any temporary defect or stoppage in the supply of public services to the property, nor in respect of any appliances.

 

 

Arrival and Departure

The property is available from 4pm local time on the first day of booking,  and must be vacated by 10am on the final day. The property should be left in a clean and tidy state.

The keys must be returned to us at the end of your stay and before the security deposit is refunded.

Guest Behaviour

We reserve the right to terminate, without compensation or further obligation, a client's stay if it is deemed that their behaviour is unsociable, abusive or in in any way unacceptable to ourselves or any other guest.

Pool Safety

Our pool is equipped with a pool alarm which conforms to the standards for pool security systems set by AFNOR (the body responsible for French safety standards).  The law was specifically put in place to protect children under five years old but anyone with children will understand that no security device, no matter how well approved can replace the vigilance of a responsible adult at all times.

Apologies, but no pets allowed.

We would advise that all guests have adequate travel insurance, including coverage for any sports or activities they may wish to participate in during their stay.
