Rental General Terms & Conditions in effect at the time of the booking

Updated on the 24th of April 2022 



The TENANT understands that the properties making the object of the present contract are not rented to him/her other than as a temporary residence. The rental cannot be extended without the prior agreement of the proprietor or the agency, the TENANT accepting this. This latter, the TENANT, declares on his/her honor that he/she will not exercise nor seek to exercise any profession in the rented property.



Reservations made on the web site will only become firm once the Agency have checked the vacancies and issued the rental contract, which will then be considered as definitive. 

The present contract is fixed and definitive. The TENANT, having put down a deposit on account for the rental, engages to take possession of the premises put at disposition fixed by the contract and to pay the balance of the rental one month before the start of the rental.



The security deposit is paid to cover damages which can be caused to the premises rented and to furniture or other objects equipping the rented premises as well as various charges and outlay except electricity.

This deposit will be cancelled or destroyed after a satisfactory inventory; if the inventory is not satisfactory, deduction will be made after a delay of 15 days maximum for objects replaced, expenses in repair, extra cleaning and high outlay (excluding energy). If the security deposit proves insufficient, the TENANT agrees to make the sum up.

If the property has a telephone, the deposit will not be returned until the telephone charges have been paid.



- The TENANT agrees to return the rented premises in the state in which he/she found them at the time of his/her entry such as is described.

A state of the premises, will be provided on arrival. The TENANT agrees to fill it up, marking all anomalies, and return them dated and signed within 48 hours. Any claim will not be taken account of in case of any delay.

The furniture and furnishings (wall paper, curtains …) must not suffer more than depreciation from the normal use for which they are intended. If at the end of the present contract they are missing or have been put out of service, for a cause other than normal usage, they must be paid for or replaced by the TENANT with the consent of the Proprietor or the Agency. The following will be retained if need arises from the guarantee deposited:

- The value of objects broken or cracked.

- Subject to cancelation, the TENANT cannot, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, sub-let or grant his rights to the present contract without the express consent of the proprietor or his agent; he/she must live respectably in the rented premises, respecting above all the regulations relative to the tranquillity of the building.

 The premises presently rented must not under any circumstances be occupied by a number of persons larger than that indicated on the rental contract. If the number of persons exceeds that expected, the agent can refuse the extra persons. All breaking of contract which may result will then be attributed to the initiative of the TENANT.

- The TENANT must allow on the premises urgent work to be carried out when necessary to maintain in a good state the rented property and the elements of shared equipment.

- The TENANT may not introduce into the premises currently rented ANY ANIMAL; if this clause is not respected by the TENANT, the agent can refuse entry into the premises. All breaking of contract which may result will then be attributed to the initiative of the TENANT.

Smoke free area : For health and safety reasons, it is strictly forbidden to smoke in our accommodations. In case the place is left with smoke smell and/or burn stains on furniture or flooring, the agency will charge 1.000€ penalty in regards of the damage caused.



The Agency is obliged to put at the TENANT’s disposal the rented property conforming to the condition described and to respect the obligations resulting from the present contract.



The TENANT is responsible for all damages arising from his actions. He declares he is covered by his Insurance company by means of a holiday/vacation policy against the risks of theft, fire, broken windows and water damage, and more generally both for his total risks as a TENANT and for the property given in rent, just as for claims from neighbors. As a result, the Proprietor or the Agency decline all responsibility for the claims that their insurance company might exercise against the TENANT in case of accident.
