Conditions of Booking 'The Apartment'

The Period of rental is flexible under the The Apartment Plan as arrival and departures times are pre-arranged with us well in advance.

A 20% deposit is payable at the time of booking and the balance is payable upon arrival at La Toscane upon the hand over of ‘Apartment’ keys. The deposit cheque should be made payable to JPO Hobbs and sent to La Toscane, 83570 CORRENS, Var, France.

Electricity, central heating, water, towels and bed linen are included.

A telephone is available for local calls only. Please bring your mobile for international calls.

The renter agrees to look after the property and its contents whilst under his care and on departure agrees to leave it in a clean and tidy manner. A Good Housekeeping Deposit of £200 or 200 Euros is payable on arrival which will be refunded upon departure once the villa has been checked, confirming that there has been no serious damage or misuse. Whilst we accept that from time to time accidents do happen, we would ask our guests to kindly point out to our Agency if any accidental damage does occur during their visit so that such items can either be replaced or repaired in time for the arrival of future guests.

‘The Apartment' renter acknowledges that if he or she is given the use of a vehicle for the duration of their visit, it is done so free of charge and does not form any part of a hire purchase or rental agreement. Whilst the vehicle is fully insured for 3rd party liability, our guests agree to accept full responsibility for any damage to the vehicle while under their care and use their own vehicle insurance as cover. They will also return the car with a full tank. Proof of a valid driving licence is required under this program. Please contact us for further details and enquiries.

The renter acknowledges that any reservation is made in accordance with these Conditions of Booking and that he or she will not hold the owners responsible for any mishap or accident to persons or property whilst occupying 'The Apartment' during the agreed rental period.

Pets:
As a Labrador owner, we are extremely happy to accept dogs within the rental agreement, but dog owners must ensure that their animals are always under supervision and that they do not foul on the lawn surrounding the swimming pool. Their business can be done quite easily in the fields beyond or elsewhere. Dog owners must also ensure that their pets do not jump on beds and furniture and that they are not left alone within the house at any time. Our agency will monitor if there is any abuse of these rules and if any damage is caused, cleaning deductions will be taken from the Caution Deposit. Please know that in France, dogs are usually allowed in restaurants, lying happily under the table!!

Cancellations:
As with any type of Holiday, guests are advised to protect themselves against any unforseen circumstances, Force Majeure and Cancellation, howsoever caused, by taking out the necessary Travel Insurance. In the event that a guest cancels a booking after monies have been paid, the renter will forfeit his deposit and/or final payment unless a substitute tenant can be found. If a substitute tenant can be found, any payments already made will be refunded less 10% administration fee.

Declaration:
The renter acknowledges that any reservation made is done so "in good faith" and in accordance with the Conditions stated in the Conditions of Booking. The renter further agrees that neither he/she or any member of his/her party will hold the owners responsible for any mishap or accident to persons or property while occupying the house during the tenancy agreement.
