A 25% deposit is payable on confirmation of your booking. This should be returned together with a signed copy of booking form within 7 days. First class post normally takes 2 or 3 days from the UK. Alternatively, we can accept a scanned copy of the signed form emailed back to us and a bank transfer or payment via PayPal (including an admin charge for their services).
Full payment is due 6 weeks before the departure date. If this is not received by the due date, we reserve the right to seek an alternative booking, with the cancellation charges then coming into effect.
For the first time in our area, the tourist tax known as “tax de sejour” is being levied. The tax is already payable in most of France and Europe in all types of holiday accommodation from apartments to campsites to five star hotels.
For our gite, the charge is €1.10 per adult – i.e. anyone 18 years and over – per day, and is payable locally at the end of your stay. This can’t be included in our prices, as it is varies depending on the make up of your group, and we have to account for it separately to the tax man.
Should you need to cancel your booking for any reason, the following charges will be payable. The charges are based on the cost of the basic holiday not including any additional services.
- More than 42 days – 20%
- 42 days or less –50%, unless we can rebook the property, when we will refund any payment to the level of the subsequent booking
- 1 month or less – 100%, unless we can rebook the property, when we will refund any payment to the level of the subsequent booking
Refundable Security deposit
A refundable security deposit of £300 is payable with full payment, 6 weeks before arrival.
We reserve the right to charge you for any costs relating to the gite being left excessively dirty, any breakages or damage to the material structure of the property (gite and pool).
The deposit will be refunded on departure less any deductions for items listed above.
This is not intended to be a sneaky means of increasing the cost of your holiday and it is hoped that we will never have to levy any such charge except in exceptional circumstances.
We cannot be held responsible for the personal safety and security of guests (or their belongings) while on our premises or using items supplied by ourselves. You remain responsible for your own personal safety at all times. Children should be supervised by an adult at all times, particularly in and around the pool area.
French insurance works differently to the UK. You are responsible for any damage to the property as we cannot claim under our insurance for damage caused by guests. It is therefore essential that you take out personal insurance that covers you for accidental damage and personal accident and personal liability. We reserve that right to request a copy of your personal liability insurance.
The gite is priced per week, irrespective of number of occupants. Only the number of people stated on the booking form may occupy the property, even if the maximum occupancy is not reached. The maximum occupancy of each property is as stated in the individual property details. The maximum number must not be exceeded at any time.
Dogs, cats or other pets are not allowed in the gite as we need to keep the gite as hypo-allergenic as possible for those guests who may suffer from allergies to pet hair or dander.
Should we consider your behaviour to be unacceptable, we reserve the right to ask you to leave the gite. No refunds will be made.
Please leave the gite as you find it. Alternatively you may wish to take advantage of the end of stay cleaning service – see additional information.
Please check all details carefully.
