Terms & Conditions

The contract will be between the client and the owners of Les Crouquets and will be governed by French law. It will be entered into when the booking form has been received, the deposit has been processed and a letter/
e-mail of confirmation has been issued by Les Crouquets.
The contract will be subject to all the following conditions.


A booking form will be issued when a verbal, written or email reservation is made.This must be completed and returned to Les Crouquets within 7 days together with a deposit of 30% of the total booking value if this is made more than 2 calendar months prior to arrival.

The balance becomes payable 2 calendar months before the arrival date.If the balance is not received on or before the due date, we reserve the right to relet the property.

For bookings made less than 2 calendar months prior to the date of arrival the sum becomes payable in full at the time of booking.

Please note that the rental rate agreed at the time of booking forms part of the contract and will not be adjusted after the deposit has been paid.

Cancelled bookings will be subject to our cancellation policy.

Where credit card details have been given to secure a booking in lieu of a deposit and/or final payment  the client will agree that any eventual cancellation fees may be charged to that card.

Any cancellations must be made in writing.
Deposits will be refunded only when the cottage is relet for the full rental rate otherwise they will not be refunded.
For rentals which have already been paid in full,any monies paid will be refunded less any handling charges incurred, if we relet the cottage/s for the full rental rate.
If the property is subsequently relet for less than the full rate, the difference will be treated as a cancellation charge and will not be refunded.
If the property remains unlet, no money will be refunded.

In the very unlikely event that we have to cancel your booking, Les Crouquets will try to source alternative accommodation in the area. In any event, Les Crouquets will not be held liable for more than the rental rate of the entire booking.

Although not compulsory, we strongly recommend that you arrange insurance cover against any cancellation charges.

A security deposit of 400 is payable on arrival at the property . This will be returned in full within 1 week of departure provided no damages,breakages or any incident incurring extra expenditure have occurred.

Alternatively a valid credit card number to which any agreed payment for damage/breakages etc may be charged will be acceptable.

We reserve the right to refuse entry to the entire party if this condition is breached.Use of the cottages or the facilities & grounds by anyone not named on the booking form including day visitors is expressly forbidden without prior permission from Les Crouquets and may result in an additional charge or the immediate termination of the contract.
