General Conditions of Rental of Seasonal Furnished Accommodation


The tenant may not under any circumstances claim any right to remain in the premises after the expiry of the period initially stipulated in the contract.


The Tenant shall make reasonable use of the furnished accommodation in accordance with the purpose of the premises.

On departure, the tenant undertakes to leave the furnished accommodation as clean as they found it on arrival. If this is not the case, a cleaning fee will be charged or deducted from the deposit. Additional cleaning of the crockery, if necessary, will be invoiced on a time spent basis (rate: 40€ per hour).

The hirer undertakes, in the event of use of the aquatic area and/or the fitness room, to make reasonable use of the goods in accordance with the articles "aquatic area" and "fitness room" herein.

Under no circumstances may the rental benefit a third party. The owner shall provide the accommodation in accordance with the description he has given, shall maintain it in a state of use and shall allow the lessee to enjoy it peacefully.


On arrival of the client in the rental, a deposit is requested by the owner. It will be returned to the tenant, after the contradictory inventory of fixtures at the end of the rental period or will be sent to him within one week, after deduction, if necessary, of the cost of restoring the premises and the cost of replacing the elements and equipment made available. This period may not exceed 60 days.

This guarantee is extended to the damage provided for in the "aquatic area" and "fitness room" sections of this document.

If the bond is insufficient, the tenant undertakes to make up the difference.


The number of tenants may under no circumstances exceed the stated capacity without the prior written agreement of the owner, taking into account the additional charges incurred by the change in the number of occupants. A supplement will then be invoiced in proportion to the number of persons.

5-      ANIMALS

Animals are not allowed, with some exceptions.

For small animals that are not likely to cause a nuisance, they may be accepted by way of derogation by the owner provided that these animals are registered on the contract. The tenant undertakes to respect the number of animals allowed, as indicated on the contract, and undertakes to ensure that the animal does not cause any damage or disturbance to the occupants or neighbours.

Failure to comply with this clause shall result in immediate termination of the contract by the lessee alone, without any reimbursement of services being due from the lessor to the lessee.

The inventory of fixtures and fittings and the inventory of the furniture and equipment will be carried out jointly at the beginning and end of the stay by the owner and will be signed by both parties.


The reservation will become effective as soon as the Hirer has returned a copy of the signed contract, or has acknowledged that he/she has read and accepted the present general rental conditions, together with the deposit, before the date indicated.

The balance of the rent must be paid 28 days before arrival at the property. If the tenant delays his arrival, he must inform the owner beforehand, in these conditions article 13 paragraph b will not be applied.


In the event of early interruption of the stay by the Tenant, and if the responsibility of the owner is not called into question, no reimbursement will be made, except for the security deposit under the conditions indicated in article 3.


Any cancellation must be notified by registered letter:

a- Before taking possession. As a general rule, the deposit remains with the owner. They may be returned when the furnished accommodation has been re-let for the same period and at the same price. Less than 29 days before the start of the rental period, no refund will be made unless the property can be re-let for the same period and at the same price. We invite you to take out cancellation insurance.

After 24 hours and without notice to the owner :

- the present contract shall be deemed to be terminated,

- the deposit and the balance remain with the owner,

- the owner can dispose of his furnished accommodation.

c- In the event of cancellation of the rental by the owner :

The lessor will reimburse the lessee double the deposit and, if applicable, the balance if it has been received, i.e. accepted after verification by the lessor's bank.


The lessor may terminate the contract during the course of its execution in the event of voluntary deterioration of the premises (dwelling, clubhouse, aquatic area and fitness room), voluntary and repeated abnormal neighbourhood disturbances, thefts, non-performance of a clause in the contract, without it being necessary to prove the seriousness of the breach. The immediate termination of the contract would then be the sole responsibility of the tenant, in compliance with article 12 of these general conditions.


The tenant is obliged to insure the premises entrusted or rented to him. He must therefore check whether his main home policy includes the holiday extension (holiday rental). If it does not, they should check with their insurer.


If the complaint concerns the state of the premises or the description of the rental, it must be made in writing within seven days of arrival. The owner and the tenant must favour an amicable settlement. For other complaints, the tenant may refer the matter to a representative body without any time limit.
