Rental Contract and Booking Conditions for La Bergerie Holiday Gite

1. La Bergerie (the Property) situated in Duravel is offered as a holiday rental subject to confirmation by the Owner. The holiday rental contract shall be between the Client (the Party leader and all members of the accompanying party) and the Owner – Beverley Morel

2. To reserve the Property, the Client should complete and sign the rental agreement booking form and return it with the payment of the initial deposit (25% of the rent due). The deposit is payable by PayPal or bank transfer direct to the Owner’s bank account. Full details will be provided once the booking is confirmed.

3. The balance of the rent together with the security deposit is payable not less than 12 weeks before the start of the rental period. If payment is not received by the due date the Owner reserves the right to give notice by post or e-mail 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.

4. A security deposit of 300 Euros is required in case of, for example, damage to the Property or its contents. The sum reserved by this clause shall not limit the Client’s liability to the Owner. The Owner will account to the Client for the security deposit and refund the balance within 2 weeks of the end of the rental period.

5. If the Client has to cancel the booking at any stage, the Owner will return the money received, minus the deposit, if they can find another renter for that period.

6. Please remember that swimming pools can be dangerous places, especially for young children. The Client is responsible for their own safety and parents/guardians are solely responsible for the supervision and safety of their children. The Owner requests that you arrange full travel, accident, health and liability insurance.

7. The Client leaves his/her car on the Owner’s Property at his/her own risk, and the Owner takes no responsibility for any vehicle or the contents of any vehicle.

8. The rental period shall commence at 4pm on the agreed first day of the rental period and finish at 10am on the agreed last day of the rental period.

10. The Client agrees to be a considerate tenant, to take good care of the Property and to leave at the end of the rental period. The Owner reserves the right to make a retention from the security deposit to cover additional cleaning costs if the Client leaves the Property in an unacceptable condition.

11. The Client may in no circumstance re-let or sublet the Property, even free of charge.

12. The number of tenants should not exceed the agreed total.

13. The Client’s group should ensure they have arranged adequate insurance cover for themselves. The Owner does not carry personal accident liability, and this is an explicit condition of the rental agreement.

  • For any temporary defect or stoppage in the supply of public service (electricity, water etc) to the Property, nor in respect of any equipment, plant, machinery or appliance in the Property, garden or swimming pool.
