4. Our contract with you

4.1 How we will accept your reservation. Our acceptance of your booking will take place when we send you a confirmation invoice which will confirm the details of your booking, in which case a contract will come into force between you and us, governed by these conditions. The confirmation invoice will be sent to your email address.

4.2 Your responsibility to verify your documents. It is your responsibility to carefully check the confirmation invoice and any other documents we send you as soon as you receive them. Contact us immediately if any information that appears on the confirmation invoice or other document appears to be incorrect or incomplete as it may not be possible to make changes later. Please ensure that the names on the confirmation invoice exactly match the names spelled in your passport (including all middle names).

4.3 If we cannot accept your reservation. If we are unable to accept your booking, we will notify you in writing and will not charge you. If you have already made the payment, we will refund it to you. This may be because the property or rental car you have chosen is no longer available, or because we have identified an error in the price or description of the property or rental car.

5. Price and payment for chosen arrangements

5.1 Where to find the price of the chosen arrangements. Prices on our website are shown in euros. The total price of the chosen services (VAT included) will be the price indicated to you during the reservation process. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the arrangements advised to you is correct, but please see clause 5.2 to find out what happens if we discover an error in the price of your booking.

5.2 What happens if we got the price wrong.
It is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some properties or car rentals we sell may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices before accepting your booking so that, where the correct price of the property or car hire on your booking date is less than our stated price on your booking date, we will charge the amount the lowest. If the correct price of the property or car rental on the date of your reservation is higher than the price quoted to you, we will contact you for your instructions before accepting your reservation. If we accept and process your booking where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakable and could reasonably have been recognized by you as a pricing error, we may cancel the booking and refund you all amounts paid by you.

5.3 Will the price change after your booking.
Once the price of the chosen property (based on the composition of your group) or car rental has been confirmed at the time of booking, it is guaranteed and will not be increased (unless there is a price error (see clause 5.2) or if you decide to make changes to your booking, including adding people to your booking (see clause 5.4)).

5.4 Occupation
Occupation of your property and addition to your group. The maximum occupancy for all our properties (which includes adults and children) is clearly stated on each property’s webpage. The maximum possible size of your group and the number of rooms available to you will be clearly indicated on your confirmation invoice. If you would like to increase your group size and/or add additional rooms, please contact our expert. If the property can accommodate more people and/or has additional bedrooms, it may be possible to add these for an additional fee, if applicable. Please refer to clause 6.3 for further information.

5.5 How can you make your payments.
We accept and encourage payments by bank transfer. We also accept payments via the following types of debit cards (a debit card is defined as a card that withdraws money directly from your checking account): MasterCard Debit, Visa Debit, Visa Electron.

For some properties a higher deposit will be due or it may be necessary to make full payment at the time of booking. We will inform you before making a booking whether a deposit (and, where applicable, the value of the deposit) or full payment is required.
  • If you have paid a deposit, the balance of the cost of your property is payable at least 30 days before the start of your reservation, unless otherwise stated at the time of booking. This date will be indicated on the confirmation invoice and a reminder will be sent to your registered email address. Balance payment can be made by bank transfer or debit card. If you do not pay the balance by the due date, we will be entitled to assume that you wish to cancel your booking and we will retain the deposit paid as the applicable cancellation fee in accordance with clause 7.3.

We will let you know if the change is possible. If possible, we will notify you of any changes to the price of the property or car rental or anything else that would be necessary as a result of your change request and ask you to confirm whether you wish to make the change . If we cannot make the change or the consequences of the change (such as an increase in price) are unacceptable to you, you can cancel your booking (see clause 7).

6.2 Our modification fees. Where the requested change can be accommodated, you must pay any fees and charges incurred or imposed by any of our suppliers, together with a €250 change fee, before the change can be made.

  • Reduce the size of your group. Reductions to your group size can be made at any time before departure. They will not entitle you to any reduction in the total price of your reservation or to any refund of amounts already paid (deposit or balance).
  • Increase the size of your group. If you wish to increase your party size above the maximum occupancy of your reservation, this will only be possible if your chosen property can accommodate the additional person(s). Where possible, a supplement will be payable. This will either be in addition to the booking cost for the whole property as agreed with the owner, or in the form of a payment to increase your occupancy of the property, where the original booking was based on an occupancy rate reduced.

6.4 If you wish to transfer your reservation. If you wish to transfer your booking to someone else, the transfer must be made to one or more persons who agree to be bound by these terms and conditions and who meet all the requirements of the original booking in question. If, in our opinion, the property is not suitable for the person(s) to whom you wish to transfer the booking, we reserve the right to refuse to make the transfer. If these transfer conditions are not met, your booking will be deemed canceled by you and you will be required to pay our cancellation fees as set out in clause 7.

6.5 Changing the date of your reservation. If you would like to change the date of your reservation to a date in the same calendar year, in the same villa, please let us know. We will let you know if the alternative date is available and (if so) what fees you will need to pay to make the change. Any date change request must be submitted at least 9 weeks prior to departure, otherwise cancellation fees will apply. Please note:

  • If you change your reservation to a week in a lower price range than your original reservation, the price of your original reservation will still apply.
  • If you change your booking to a week in a higher price range than your original booking, the higher price range will apply. Any additional fees due as a result will be communicated to you and must be paid in order to make the change.
  • If you decide to change the date of your reservation to a date in the following calendar year (or beyond), this will be treated as a cancellation of the original reservation and a new reservation will need to be made. Cancellation charges will apply to the original booking (see clause 7).

8. Our rights to change or cancel your confirmed reservation

In this situation, no refund will be made and we will have no further liability to you.

8.3 If we are forced to make a material change or cancel your booking due to events beyond our control. If we have to significantly change or cancel your booking due to events beyond our control (see clause 12), we regret to inform you that we will not be able to pay you any compensation or take into account bears any costs or expenses you incur as a result. You will, however, be entitled to receive a refund of the amounts you have paid to us, less any costs we have incurred in connection with your booking which we are otherwise unable to recover. You are required to take out travel insurance which covers your costs should we have to cancel your booking in these circumstances.

8.4 If we make a material change or cancel your booking for any reason within our control.

9. Your responsibilities

9.1 Travel insurance.
You must take out adequate travel insurance. It is your responsibility to ensure that you take out travel insurance that is suitable and adequate for your particular needs, ensuring that it covers any activities you plan to undertake and protects you against cancellation charges, medical and repatriation costs and civil liability claims. If you would like to arrange additional activities during your stay, please check your coverage before doing so. Please read your policy details carefully and take them with you. If you choose to travel without adequate insurance cover, we will not be liable for any losses you suffer for which you have been covered by insurance cover.

14. Your health and safety

14.1 Swimming pools and jacuzzis, by their very nature, carry their own inherent risks. You must ensure that you and all members of your party take extra care when using or being near the swimming pools at the property where you are staying. You must ensure that at no time does anyone dive into the swimming pool or enters it under the influence of alcohol. You must check the pool daily before use and report any apparent defects. Many swimming pools are not fenced. If you require a fenced pool, you must let us know before making your reservation to allow us to find one for you. Whether fenced or not, children must be supervised at all times by a responsible adult. We and the owner have no liability for death or injury resulting from pool-related use.

14.2 Many of our properties are located on large, often unfenced lots and as such your group should take extra care when exploring them. Floors may contain drops and/or uneven ground which carry their own inherent hazards and therefore children should be supervised.

14.3 Many of our properties also have balconies and/or terraces many of which are accessed by steep, narrow, unhandled or uneven stairs and may present falls and other hazards. These may not be suitable for people with reduced mobility. Please take great care when using them and ensure that children are never left unsupervised and should not be allowed to climb on railings or walls.

Acceptance and cost of treatment are your sole responsibility. Please note that doctors can only speak in their native language.

16. Wildlife, Animals and surroundings

Insects and animals may be attracted to nearby swimming pools, streams or ponds, local vegetation, and food left behind after an outdoor meal. We urge you to keep doors and windows closed wherever possible and clean up any leftover food after all meals (outdoor and indoor). Please do not intentionally feed local animals – this encourages them to return and they may not be welcome to future guests.

16.2 Allergies. If you suffer from allergies triggered by animals, please let us know before booking, although we cannot guarantee that pets will not be or have not been present, we can recommend properties where the possibility is reduced ( for example, when we know that the owners have not kept any animals).

We decline all responsibility if this situation arises.
