If, at the end of this period, the agency has not confirmed the reservation, the deposit will be refunded immediately, and the reservation will be canceled.
All cancellations must be notified by email or phone but confirmed by a registered letter. The date on which the letter is presented will determine the date of cancellation.
Should the tenant be the one to cancel, the following conditions shall apply:
– More than 7 days: the deposit is kept.
– Less than 28 days or no-show at the start of stay: 100% of the stay is invoiced.
In the event of a cancellation supported by a reason, should the premises be re-rented, the paid amount will be returned to the tenant who cannot honor his/her contract.
Stays begun and then shortened or interrupted by the tenant do not entitle the latter to any refunds.
Should the agency be obliged to cancel the stay in the building planned, due to factors caused by third-parties or external circumstances, it shall supply, if possible, accommodation of the same category or of a higher category, without any additional invoicing. If the agency is unable to do so, it undertakes to refund immediately the totality of the sum paid.
We strongly recommend that travelers check with their insurance that in the event of measures by the French government imposing the closure of the ski lifts of the ski resort, their stay can be insured. The crises that may lead to a partial or total closure of the ski area being now known, the agency cannot guarantee a total refund.
The guarantee deposit is paid to settle the cost of any damage that might have been incurred by the rented real estate property or by items of furniture or other items furnishing the rented premises, and to settle the various expenses. This deposit will be kept until the departure of the client and the inventory is validated. It can be cashed in. The deposit will be made at the latest the day of arrival of the client. Payment can be made by bank card by bank transfer, according to the amount marked in the special provisions of the contract.

This sum will be returned within 15 days following the customer’s departure, once the amount has been deducted for any objects replaced, repair costs, additional housekeeping and extra food and drink consumed. Should the guarantee deposit prove insufficient, the lessee undertakes to complete the sum if so requested.
