BOOKING TERMS AND CONDITIONS

 

The property is offered for holiday rental subject to confirmation by Brittany Country Cottages.

 

To reserve the ‘Property’, the Client should complete and sign the booking form which will be emailed to you and return it together with payment of the initial non-returnable deposit (25% of the total rental due), payable to Brittany Country Cottages. You will receive a copy of these terms when you receive the booking form

 

Following receipt of the booking form and deposit you will be sent a booking confirmation and receipt usually by email. This is the acceptance of the booking. PLEASE NOTE that although the price may be quoted in Euros, we will accept payment in sterling and we will use the rate of exchange at  the time the payment falls due, you will be informed of this at the time.

 

The balance of the rent together with the security deposit (see below) is payable not less than 8 weeks before the start of the rental period, and should be payable to Brittany Country Cottages. If payment is not received by the due date, the Owner reserves the right to give notice in writing that the reservation is cancelled. The Client will remain liable to pay the balance of the rent unless the Owner is able to re-let the property. In this event a further Clause will apply. Reservations made within eight weeks of the start of the rental period require full payment at the time of booking.

 

A refundable security bond (deposit) of either £100, £150 or £200 (dependent on owner's request) is required in case of, for example, damage to the property or its contents (unless otherwise stipulated). This is payable with the balance, eight weeks before the start of the rental period and will be cashed. However the sum reserved by this Clause shall not limit the Client’s liability to the Owner. The Owner will account to the Agency and thereby the Client for the security deposit and refund the balance due within 2 weeks after the end of the rental period.

 

Subject to Clauses above, in the event of a cancellation, refunds of amounts paid will be made if the Owner is able to re let the Property and any expenses or losses incurred in so doing will be deducted from the refundable amount. 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 etc., as these are not covered by the Owner’s insurance.

 

The rental period shall commence at 4pm on the first day and finish at 10am on the last day. The Owner shall not be obliged to offer accommodation before the time stated and the Client shall not be entitled to remain in occupation after the time stated.

 

The maximum number to reside in the Property must not exceed the number stated unless the Owner has given prior permission. If this rule is broken, the Owner retains the right to either ask for financial compensation for the extra capacity, or indeed to cancel the remainder of the holiday without recompense to the Client. This is due to strict insurance clauses here in France.

 

The Client agrees to be a considerate tenant and to take good care of the Property and to leave it in a clean and tidy condition at the end of the rental period, as you should find it on your arrival. The Owner reserves the right to make retention from the security deposit to cover additional cleaning costs if the Client leaves the Property in an unacceptable condition. The Client also agrees not to act in any way which would cause disturbance to any residents in any neighbouring properties.

 

The Client shall report to the Owner without delay any defects in the Property or breakdown in equipment, plant, machinery or appliances in the Property, and arrangements for repair and/or replacement will be made as soon as possible.

 

The Owner shall not be liable to the Client:

For any temporary defects or stoppage in the supply of public services to the Property, nor in respect of any equipment, plant, machinery or appliances in the Property, or garden, for any loss, damage or injury which is the result of adverse weather conditions, riot, war, strikes or other matters beyond the control of the Owner: For any loss, damage or inconvenience caused to or suffered by the Client if the Property shall be destroyed or damaged before the start of the rental period and in any such event, the Owner shall within seven days of the notification to the Client, refund to the Client all sums previously paid in respect of the rental period.

 

Under no circumstances shall the Owner’s liability to the Client exceed the amount paid to the Owner for the rental period.

 

This contract shall be governed by European Law in every particular including formation and interception and shall be deemed to have been made in Europe. Any proceedings arising out of or in connection with this contract may be brought in any court or competent jurisdiction in Europe. Please note that these conditions will be included with our booking form confirmation.
