Please read this carefully. When you book your holiday with us you are entering into a contract which binds you and us in various ways. It is understood that "The Company" is the firm which lets the Property and "The Renter" is the person who signs the booking contract and/or any member of his party and "The Property" is the Property rented by the Renter.

  1. Making a booking. The Property cannot be rented before the Company has received a booking form correctly filled in and signed and accompanied by a 40% non returnable deposit followed by a payment of the balance at least 8 weeks prior to the start of the holiday. The Company strongly recommends you arrange your own cancellation insurance as deposits and payments are non-refundable.
  2. Minors. No booking can be accepted from renters under 18 years of age.
  3. Place and time of holiday start/finish. Except by prior permission in writing by the Company, all rentals start and finish at our property at 38, Chemin des Patiasses, Le Somail, 11120 Ginestas, France. Unless otherwise agreed, rentals start at 3 p.m. on the first day and finish at 10 a.m. on the last day of rental.
  4. Property availability. If due to circumstances beyond the control of the Company it is unable to provide a Property of the type rented to the Renter or a Property which the Company considers to be a reasonable equivalent, the company will reimburse the client with all monies paid to it. The Renter shall then have no other or further claim against the company for whatever reason.
  5. Damage Waiver. A non-returnable Damage Waiver dependant is payable with rental charge This does not cover malicious damage or leaving the Property in an unclean condition.
  6. Insurance. The Company holds a full comprehensive property insurance policy. The Company's insurance does not cover the Renter and his party personal effects. The Company will not accept responsibility for loss or damage to Renter's goods and personal effects howsoever caused unless due to the negligence of the Company or its personnel.
  7. Property delays or curtailments. No responsibility will be accepted by the Company for loss of time or expenses occasioned through accidental damage to the Property while in the Renter's charge. No liability can be accepted for loss or damage or expense which occurs as the result of any defect or breakdown occurring during the rental period unless this is caused by proven reason of the Company's failure to adequately maintain the Property. Any defect, breakdown or accident must be reported immediately to the Company by the Renter so that steps can be taken to repair the Property or remedy the service. The Company shall not be responsible for any delays or restrictions or their consequences arising from obstructions, repairs or those resulting from "force majeure" ("force majeure" means any event which the Company could not even with all due care have foreseen or avoided such as:- war, threat of war, riot, civil strife, industrial action, terrorist activity, natural or nuclear disaster, fire, adverse weather conditions and all similar conditions outside the Company's control).
  8. Accidents and losses. The Renter has charge of the Property and is responsible for its safe occupation. In the event of an accident the Renter must immediately notify the Company. The Renter is not authorised to carry out or have carried out any repairs to the Property or its equipment. At the end of the holiday the Renter must notify the company of any losses, breakages or other damage.
  9. At the end of holiday. The Property must be vacated by 10a.m. on the final day of the rental. Late departures may be charged at twice the daily rate plus any costs.
  10. Additional Deposits. At the discretion of the operator you may be asked for an additional deposit of €100 per head payable in cash only for all male or all female parties or certain large groups.
