Preamble

In addition to these General Rental Conditions (hereinafter “the GTC”), the Special Rental Conditions (hereinafter “the CPL”) between the parties (respectively the “Lessor” and the “Lessee”) are added. These CPL are materialized by:

  • Either by email or by online reservation platform between the Lessor and the Lessee.

  • Or, only at the express request of the Lessee, of a Seasonal Rental Agreement between the parties (hereinafter CLS).

If clauses are contradictory between the CPL and the CGL, then by derogation from the CGL it is the CPL that prevails.

The accommodation, made up of one or more apartments (hereinafter the "Property"), subject of the CPL, is located in the "Establishment" which is itself defined by either the Residence Macabou (50, subdivision Macabou 97280 Le Vauclin), or Villa Ansalane (25, Allée des Alizés, Quartier Passe-mon-Temps 97229 Les Trois Ilets).

Regarding the Lessee, reference is made to the signatory of the CPL, and, by extension, depending on the context, to the Occupants of the Property.

In the absence of a CLS, it will be agreed that the Lessor is designated at the bottom of the page of these GTC, and the Lessee is designated in the CPL.

The rental price (hereinafter the "Price") includes the cost of accommodation as well as entrance fees.

The CPL as well as the CGL apply from the signature of the CLS by the Lessee or from the payment to the Lessor by the Lessee, of a deposit (hereinafter "the Deposit") of 30% (unless otherwise specified in the CPL ) on the price. Payment of the Deposit confirms the Lessee's agreement to the CPLs as well as to these T & Cs.

The CLS is concluded for the sole benefit of the Lessee. The transfer of the CLS, total or partial subletting, is strictly prohibited.

For the execution of the CPLs and these GTC, the Lessor and the Lessee elect domicile in their respective domiciles. However, in the event of a dispute, the court of the domicile of the Lessor shall have sole jurisdiction. This agreement is subject to French law.

Reservation and payment

The rental is considered to be definitively reserved, upon receipt of the Deposit.

The balance of the Price is due 3 weeks at the latest before arrival. In the absence of payment within this period, the Lessor is entitled to consider that the Lessee has canceled his reservation. However, the Lessee remains in all cases responsible for the payment of all the amounts agreed for the products or services ordered. If applicable, the cancellation conditions will be applied. Failure by the Lessee to comply with these payment conditions will be considered by the Lessor as a cancellation requested by the Lessee.

In the event that the payment turns out to be irregular, incomplete or non-existent, for any reason whatsoever, the sale of the reserved services will be canceled, the resulting costs being borne by the Lessee.

The following are considered as discharging the debt: the delivery of a transfer or a check after confirmation of collection by the Lessor's bank (often several days for a check), or payment by credit card.

The Lessor reserves the right to refuse access to the Property if the balance or the security deposit has not been paid.

Any bank transfer issued from a bank outside France must be denominated in Euros exclusively. Transfers from abroad may incur bank charges. These costs are the responsibility of the Lessee.

The entry fees included in the Price include in particular an end-of-stay cleaning service for the Property (including cleaning of the linen), but not cleaning of the indoor and outdoor common areas.

Security deposit

At the latest on the first day of the stay, when the keys are handed over, the Lessee will give the Lessor a sum of € 500 (or an amount equal to the amount of the rental if it is less than € 500, or € 1,000 if the rental amount is greater than € 2,000), in cash, by credit card or by check payable to the Lessor, as a security deposit intended to cover any rental and unpaid damage. Rental damage is any damage or deterioration of the accommodation, as well as damage, loss or theft caused to the movable property garnishing the Property, during the rental period. Likewise, rental damages are considered to be any damage or degradation of the interior or exterior common spaces made available to the Lessee, as well as any charge resulting from non-compliance with the Lessee's commitments, including smoking inside (see the “Conditions of use of the Property” above). Any person invited by the Lessee to the Establishment, not provided for in the CLS or not expressly authorized by the Lessor, is also considered as unpaid, up to € 100 per person.

In the absence of rental damage and bad debts, the security deposit will be returned to the Lessee within a maximum period of 15 days after his departure; if it is a check, the original check will be returned because it will not have been cashed if no damage is noted at the end of the stay.

Dates and modifications

After the firm reservation, if the Lessee decides to change the dates of his stay, and the Lessor cannot assume these changes, this will result in cancellation by the Lessee. Changes in arrival or departure times imposed by road, sea or air traffic, security requirements or others, cannot lead to any compensation whatsoever. To overcome these contingencies, the Lessee is invited to take out cancellation insurance on his own.

Cancellation conditions and fees

Accommodation services provided for a specific date or at a specified frequency do not fall within the scope of the 7-day withdrawal period applied by the Consumer Code.

Any purchase of accommodation services from the Lessor is materialized by the payment of the Deposit which cannot be refunded. Once this payment has been made, the cancellation conditions indicated below apply automatically.

In the event that the Lessee cancels his reservation, or in the event of termination of this lease if the Lessee fails to meet his contractual obligations, he remains liable for the amount of the rental. However, as a commercial gesture, the rental amount will be returned to him in the event of cancellation, after deduction of cancellation fees and technical payment fees where applicable, in particular to foreign countries. Any cancellation must be reported to the Lessor, by registered letter with acknowledgment of receipt, or by email with acknowledgment of receipt. The cancellation date taken into account in the calculation of the costs is the date of receipt of the letter or e-mail.

The fees below therefore apply depending on the time between the date of cancellation and the scheduled date of arrival. They are calculated as a percentage of the amount of the stay, without being able to be less than 100 € or the amount of the Deposit:

  • more than 30 days before arrival: 30%

  • from 1 to 30 days: 70%

  • no-show: 100%

As an option, but only on the day of the reservation, the Lessee can purchase cancellation insurance from the Lessor which allows a full refund (*) of any sum already paid in the event of cancellation. The cost of this service is a percentage of the total amount of the reservation. The cost is calculated according to the minimum time chosen between the date of the possible cancellation and the planned date of the day of arrival:

  • 2 week delay: Cost 10%

  • 2-day delay: Cost 15%

(*) After deduction of 3% transaction costs on amounts already paid, and the amount of insurance.

Responsibilities
