French Farmhouse Holiday in the Dordogne
1. The Properties known as Les Oisons and Le Papillon (the Property) are offered for holiday rental
subject to confirmation by Lizette Doran
(the Owner) to the renter (the Client).
2. To reserve the Property, the Client should complete
and sign the booking form and return it with payment
of the initial non-refundable deposit (25% of the
total rent due). Following receipt of the booking
form and deposit, the Owner will send a confirmation
invoice. This is the formal acceptance of the booking.
3. The balance of the rent together with the security
deposit (see Clause 4) is payable not less than eight
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 in writing that the reservation
is cancelled. Reservations made within the eight weeks
of the start of the rental period require full payment
at the time of booking.
4. A security deposit of £100 per booking is required
in case of, for example, damage to the Property or
it’s contents. However, 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 due within 1 month
after the end of the rental period.
5. Subject to clauses 2 and 3 above, in the event
of a cancellation, refunds of the amounts paid will
be made if the Owner is able to re-let the Property
and any expenses or losses incurred in doing so 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, since these are not covered
by the Owner’s insurance.
6. The rental period shall commence at 4.00 pm on
the first day and finish at 10.00 am on the last day.
The Owner shall not be obliged to offer the accommodation
before the time stated and the Client shall not be
entitled to remain in occupation after the time stated.
Please advise if you will be arriving later than 6.00pm.
7. The maximum number to reside in the Property must
not exceed the number as stated in the Owner’s brochure,
unless the Owner has given written permission.
8. 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. The Owner reserves the right to make a retention
of £50 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 those resident.
9. The Client shall report to the Owners, without
delay, any defects in the Property or breakdown in
the equipment, plant or machinery or appliances in
the Property or garden and arrangements for repair
and/or replacements will be made as soon as possible.
10. The Owner shall not be liable to the Client for
any temporary defect or stoppage in the supply of
public services to the Property. Nor in respect of
any equipment, plant, machinery or appliance 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. Nor for any loss, damage or inconvenience
caused to or suffered by the Client, if the Property
shall be destroyed or substantially damaged before
the start of the rental period and in any such event,
the Owner shall within seven days of 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.
11. The Owner shall not be liable for accident or
injury however sustained on the premises, pool or
garden areas by the Client or members of their party
