Terms and Conditions

The agreement covers the rental of a fully equipped house, by the owners to "the Client".

1. Electricity and gas is included in the standard price. There are no hidden costs and ‘tax de sejour’ is included in all the rental prices quoted.

2. The confirmation of the received deposit and booking form is the formal acceptance of the booking. The 50% deposit is non-refundable and the client is advised to take insurance to protect them in the case of an unexpected cancellation of their holiday. The balance is due at the latest eight weeks before the start of the rental period and in the case of cancellations after this date the balance (less expenses and losses) will be refunded if the property is re-let. We shall try our utmost to do this. If the balance is not received as agreed the owners reserve the right to cancel the reservation in writing. When payments are made by bank transfer the amount received in our account will be the amount credited to the rental payment.

3. A key deposit of 200 Euros is required in case of, for example, damage to the property, or its contents. Its sum is not the limit of the clients' liability to the owners. It is payable to the proprietors, in cash, on arrival at the property and is returned, all being well, at departure. Small accidents with glasses are considered as normal wear and tear. Clients are invited to replace broken glasses and crockery if they think it appropriate but are not under an obligation to do so.

4. Rentals as a rule commence after 2.30pm. and finish at 11am. However these hours are a baseline and are flexible when this suits all parties concerned.

5. The maximum number of guests to reside on the property must not exceed that stated on the reservation form unless the owners have given written permission. Day visitors are by agreement with the owner only.

6. End of stay cleaning and cleaning during your stay are not included in the price but can be hired. If not taken up the property should be left swept and vacuumed with beds stripped and otherwise cleaned as found. When the cleaning option is taken up guests do throw rubbish and take care of recycling. The owners reserve the right to take the cost of cleaning from the security deposit if neither hire of a cleaner or basic cleaning is done.

7. The client must report to the owner without delay any defects in the property or breakdown in the equipment, services or appliances in the property. Arrangements for repair and/or replacement will be made as rapidly as possible.

8. The owners shall not be liable to the client for the following:

  • Any temporary defect or stoppage in the supply of public services to the property, nor in respect of any equipment, machinery or service in the property.
  • Any loss or inconvenience caused to, or suffered by the client due to the seasonal unavailability of public services to the property or the surrounding area.
  • Any loss, damage or inconvenience caused to or suffered by the client if the property is destroyed or substantially damaged before the start of the rental period and in any event, the owner shall, within seven days of notification to the client, refund all sums previously paid for the rental.
  • Any loss, damage or injury suffered by the client, their party, their vehicles or personal possessions whilst on the property.

9. In no circumstances shall the owner's liability to the client exceed the amount paid to the owner for the rental period. The client is strongly recommended to arrange a comprehensive travel insurance policy (including cancellation cover) and to have full cover for the party's personal belongings, public liability, accident etc., since these are not covered by the owner's insurance.
