Villa Saint Jean terms and condions

The ‘Owner’ refers to the owners (Clare and Denis Correia) of the accommodation to be let under this agreement. The terms and conditions of this document together with your booking confirmation form comprise the agreement between the Owner and all those listed on the booking form on whose behalf the group leader has signed. The contract is deemed to have been made as soon as the signed booking confirmation form is received by the Owner or their representative. 

• The group leader is responsible on behalf of all other members of the group for all matters relating to the booking. 

• "The group" refers to all persons booked to stay in the accommodation and includes any change of names to the original booking. 

• If at any time prior to the stay the group leader pulls out of the booking, the owner must be notified either by email or phone by the original group leader and a new booking confirmation and T's and C's form must be signed by a new group leader and returned to the Owner before embarking on the holiday. 

• In case of dishonoured payment the group leader will be contacted to make payment by other means, to be received by the Owner within 7 days (or immediate payment if the group is due to start the holiday in less than 7 days). Failure to do this will mean automatic cancellation of the booking. 

• The Owner guarantees the price of the holiday as quoted at the time of booking. The Owner reserves the right to increase or decrease the price of unsold holidays at any time. 

• Cancellations must be notified to the Owner by the group leader as soon as possible in writing by the group leader. Cancellation charges will be levied as follows: more than 6 weeks before arrival date - the deposit, 4-6 weeks - 50%, 2-4 weeks - 75%, less than 2 weeks - 100%. 

• Due to circumstances beyond the Owner’s control, i.e. acts of God, it may be necessary to make alterations to a confirmed booking or to cancel the booking completely. Whilst the Owner will make every effort to ensure this does not happen, if it is unavoidable the Owner will contact the group leader as soon as possible. In this instance the Owner will endeavour to make alternative arrangements for accommodation of the same value if available, or offer a full refund of any monies paid. No other compensation will be offered.

This will then be repaid to the group leader within 7 days of departure less the cost of any damage caused.
