Terms and Conditions about holiday house (gite)
These general terms and conditions are based on the French laws and regulations concerning chambres d’hôtes. This translation is for information purposes only. Only the French version may be legally binding.
Article 1 – Length of stay
By signing the contract for a fixed period, you cannot under any circumstances claim any right to a longer stay.
Article 2- Ratification of reservation
After receiving your reservation request, we will send you a confirmation by email (reservation contract). We ask you to send a confirmation reply to this contract by email and we ask you to make a down payment within 10 days. This deposit is 25% of the total rental price. The remaining amount and a cautionary deposit of € 200,- must be paid no later than 6 weeks before the start of the rental period. Reservations made 6 weeks or less before the start of the rental period must be paid in total at once.
Your reservation becomes valid upon receipt of the (down)payment. Payment of a deposit implies acceptance of these terms and conditions.
It is important to note that if the deposit is not paid within the specified period, the booking will not be confirmed and we therefore reserve the right to reclaim the gite that has become vacant.
