Caufour Booking Conditions
 1. The property known as Le Grand Gîte and Le Petit Gîte is offered for holiday rental subject to confirmation by Peter and Ingrid Batty ("the Owners") to the renter ("the Client").
 2. To reserve the "Property" the Client should be over 18 years of age. He/she should confirm availability with the owners by email or telephone and complete the booking form and return it. The non-refundable deposit should be paid by bank-to-bank transfer or cheque as arranged with the owners. Following receipt of the booking form and deposit, the Owners will send a confirmation invoice and statement. This is the formal acceptance of the booking. It is therefore advisable to arrange insurance against cancellation of your holiday.
 3. The balance of the rent is payable not less than 8 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. Reservations made within 8 weeks of the start of the rental period require full payment at the time of booking
 4. Any chargeable expenses arising during the rental period (e.g. central heating) should be settled locally with the Owners before departure.
 5. A security (damages) deposit as per the booking form is required on arrival at the start of the rental period 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 at the end of the rental period.
 6. A ‘taxe de séjour’ (tourist tax) for Montcuq Commune will be charged at the end of your stay and is 0.95 euros per person per day.
 7. Subject to clauses 2 & 3 above, in the event of a cancellation, a refund 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.
 8. The rental period shall commence from 16.00hrs on the first day and finish at 10.00hrs on the last day. The Owners 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.
 9. The maximum number to reside in the "Property" must not exceed 4 (+ baby) for the Petit Gîte. No additional persons will be accepted.
 10. 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 our prices, 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 disturbance to those resident in neighbouring properties
11. The Client shall report to the Owners without delay any defects in the "Property" or breakdown in the equipment, plant, machinery or appliances in the "Property" or garden and arrangements for repair and/or replacement will be made as soon as possible.

The Owners 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 nor 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 Owners, 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. In any such event, the Owners 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 Owners' liability to the Client exceed the amount paid to the Owners for the rental period.
