The apartments will be presented in a clean and orderly manner when guests take up occupancy, and should be left in the same condition. Our apartments are inspected closely by us or our appointed local agent on a regular (monthly) basis. The condition of the apartments throughout the year is the responsibility of the owners. The owners will take all reasonable steps to maintain the high standards of each apartment and the surroundings. The owners cannot be held responsible/liable for any event outside their control - including storm damage, flood, sudden pest invasion, failure of public utility services, mechanical breakdown, previous damage by other guests for which there has been no time for remedial work. The owners will make every effort to get faults (e.g. with boilers and kitchen appliances) put right as quickly as possible.
Cancellations must be made in writing, signed by the person who made the booking. The following cancellation penalties will apply according to the date on which the cancellation is received by the owners: More than 8 weeks before the arrival date - the deposit Less than 8 weeks but more than 4 before arrival date - 70% of the rental price. Less than 4 weeks before arrival date - 100% of the rental price. The owners reserve the right to cancel a booking and return the deposit if the balance of the rental is not received by the date it is due. Although it is unlikely that we would cancel your holiday for any other reason, we reserve the right to do so, in which case we will refund all monies that have been paid.
In the unlikely event that the guests have any problems during their stay, the matter must be reported immediately to the owners (or their appointed local agent) during their stay. If you fail to notify the owners of any dissatisfaction during your holiday, or abandon the property without notification (either direct to the owners or their local agent), complaints cannot be rectified in retrospect. If the complaint cannot be resolved locally at the time of complaint, a formal complaint must be made in writing to the owners within a period of 28 days commencing with the last day your holiday. Otherwise you will lose any entitlement you may have had to compensation. At the very least, the amount of compensation you may have been entitled to will be substantially reduced.
Personal travel and cancellation insurance is essential and you must make your own arrangements to put it in place before you travel. Please note that the use of the accommodation and the facilities - including the swimming pool - is entirely at the user's own risk, and children should be supervised at all times.
The signing of the booking form (or acceptance electronically by email) implies that the guest has understood these booking conditions and fully accepts them without exception or reservation.
