Bookings and Payments
1)A booking is made when the booking form is returned with the payment then due.
2)A 20% non-refundable deposit must be received with your booking form except when booking less than 6 weeks before departure, in which case the full payment should be made with the booking form. Full payment of the rental is due by the date shown on your confirmation of booking, normally 6 weeks before the letting begins unless specifically agreed. If you fail to make payment on time we reserve the right to treat your booking as cancelled by you.
3)When we receive the deposit we will send a receipt and confirm the booking. When we receive the full amount we will send another receipt, together with driving directions and meeting instructions.
4) Fully inclusive price - all services - electricity, cleaning, laundry, local taxes etc. However to avoid over use of air-conditioning / heating, a pre-arranged amount per day is allowed for electricity, depending on the property. Any amounts above this amount, meaning excessive use of the air-conditioning / heating, will be deducted from the security deposit. A meter reading will be carried out at the beginning and end of the rental.
5)The number of persons in occupation must not exceed the number quoted on the booking form, nor can you take your pet into the property unless it has been arranged in advance and confirmed in writing by us. If these rules are not adhered to we can refuse to hand over the property to you or can insist that you leave. We will treat any of these circumstances as a cancellation of booking by you.
Period of letting
6)Guests are asked to arrive after 4pm in order to take up occupation and to leave before 10am on the last day. The property is prepared for the next letting between 10am and 4pm on the day of the changeover.
7)Please note that arrivals between 8pm and midnight incur a 50€ charge, and then 100€ from midnight to 8am, to be paid in cash on arrival.
8)A security / breakage deposit of between £200/€200 for apartments and between £300/€300 - £500/€500 for villas is payable and we reserve the right to deduct from the breakage deposit any losses, breakages or damages caused to the house or contents during a guest’s stay and also for the cost of extra cleaning required if the property is left in an unreasonable state. We will return the security deposit by bank transfer within ten days of the end of the holiday, subject to no claims being made on the deposit.
Equipment and Services

The kitchens have gas or electric cooking facilities, refrigerator, sink with hot and cold water, adequate cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery, glasses and other household equipment to a reasonable standard for holiday use and suitable for the maximum number the house is stated to sleep. Indoor furniture and household linen should not be taken out of doors. Umbrellas should always be put down after use- to mitigate any damage in wind and rain. Any failure to adhere to this clause 9 may result in a claim by us on the deposit.

13)Properties will be clean and in good order when the client takes up occupation and should be left in the same order. Should the property need excessive cleaning after the client’s departure – this will be deducted from the security deposit.

We cannot be liable for "force majeure" including events outside our control: storm damage, flood, sudden invasion of pests, failure of public utility services, mechanical breakdowns, previous damage by other tenants, for which there is no time to remedy. If, during your holiday, mechanical equipment, such as boilers, refrigerators or pumps break down the owners will make every effort to get the fault put right as soon as possible but we shall have no further liability to the tenant. All the information given in these booking conditions and in the description of properties is given in good faith.

18)We reserve the right to cancel a booking and retain the deposit if the balance of the rental is not received on the due date as specified in the confirmation of booking. Time shall be of the essence.
