apartment named 'Glycine' and
the rental bedrooms in the main house are situated at Mas Bellonte (individually or collectively,
the Property), Chemin du Mas Bellonte, 66820
Fuilla du Haut, Pyrenees Orientales, France. The Property is offered
for holiday rental subject to confirmation by Malcolm and Lynn
Preedy (the Owners) to the renter (the Client).
To reserve the
Property, the Client should complete and sign a copy of the
booking form and return it with confirmation of payment, direct into
the Owners' bank account, of the initial
non-refundable deposit (25% of the total rent due). Following
receipt of the deposit, the Owners will send a confirmation
invoice and statement. This is the formal acceptance of the
The balance of
the rent together with 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
Owners reserve the right to give notice in writing that the
reservation is cancelled. In the event of cancellation, the client will remain liable to
pay the balance of the rent unless the Owners are able to re-let the
Property. Reservations made within eight weeks
of the start of the rental period require full payment at the
time of booking.
deposit of £50 for every week or part week of the rental
period is required in case of, for example, damage to the
Property or its contents. However, the sum reserved by this
clause shall not limit the Client's liability to the Owners.
The Owners will account to the Client for the security deposit
and refund the balance due within two weeks after the end of
the rental period. Any chargeable expenses arising during the
rental period (e.g. telephone calls) should be settled direct
with the owner before departure, or will be deducted from the
Clauses 2 and 3 above, in the event of a non-insurable
cancellation, refunds of amounts paid will be made if the
Owners are able to re-let the Property, and any expenses or
losses incurred in so doing 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 Owners' insurance.
The rental period
shall commence at 4.00 pm on the first day and finish at 10.00
am on the last day. The Owners shall not be obliged to offer
accommodation before the time stated and the Client shall not
be entitled to remain in occupation after the time stated.
The names and maximum number to reside in the Property must
not differ from that stated on the booking form unless the
Owner has given written permission.
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. Although a final clean is included
in the rental, the Owners reserve 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. The Client also agrees not to act in
any way, which would cause disturbances to those residents in
The Client and
party acquire no rights whatsoever over the Property excepting
occupation as a holiday let for the period booked. The Client
shall not sub-let the Property.
The Client shall
report to the Owners without delay any defects in the Property
or breakdown in the equipment such as plant, machinery or
appliances in the Property or garden and
arrangements for repair and/or replacement will be made by the
Owners as soon as possible. The Owners cannot accept complaints made after the Client
has vacated the property, if they have not been given the opportunity to put
matters right during the Clients' stay. If the Client abandons the
property before first informing the Owners, he or she will lose the
right to compensation.
The Owners shall not be liable to the
