Booking Contract for Oak Cottage
N.B: In this document, “we” refers to the owner of the property, Mr and Mrs Carl Foster, “you” refers to the person booking the property, considered as the lead guest. If the cottage is available for the required dates and the date you make the booking is more than 8 weeks from your arrival date you must pay a 25% deposit. Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund. Once the deposit is received, we will confirm your booking by email. We will email you an invoice, via Stripe, for the balance of payment and refundable damage deposit 8 weeks before your arrival date. If the balance is not received within 6 weeks of the start of your stay we reserve the right to give notice by email that the booking is cancelled and your deposit will be forfeit. Bookings made within 8 weeks of commencement of the rental require full payment at the time of booking. The rental period shall commence at 4.00pm on the first day and finish at 10.00am on the last day.
All non French nationals are required by law to complete the ‘Fiche Individuelle De Police Des Touristes Estrangers’. You will be asked to complete this form after your arrival and we are legally obliged to keep them for 6 months. After this time the forms are destroyed by us. Only the local police can ask for the details on this form.
Terms and Conditions
These conditions form part of the contract once the booking is confirmed. We reserve the right to refuse any booking without an explanation. In the event of this happening the guest will be advised by email of any such refusal and all payment will be refunded to the guest. A damage deposit of €250 for each rental period is required when the balance of payment is made or, payable at the time of booking when a booking is made within 8 weeks of your arrival date. The damage deposit covers any damage caused to the property or contents including the garden furniture, parasol, barbeque, swimming pool and pool furniture. However, the sum reserved by this clause shall not limit the guest’s liability: it is the guest’s responsibility to ensure they have taken out adequate holiday insurance. We will process the damage deposit refund within 2 days of the end of your stay, subject to a property inspection.
