Terms & Conditions
This is a legally binding contract between the property owners and the tenants. The property owners are also referred to as “we” and “us”.
The tenant is the person who signs the booking form or, in the case of online booking, the person who makes the online payment. This person is responsible for ensuring all members of the holiday party accept and adhere to these terms and conditions. The tenant is also referred to as “you”.
The property referred to being:
Le Moulin sur Célé
A Booking Deposit is payable within 7 days of the provisional booking being taken. The booking is taken on a provisional basis until the deposit has been paid in full and funds cleared through the banking system (where appropriate). The booking then becomes confirmed. Until the booking is confirmed, it can be cancelled by the owners at any time without prior notice.
A Security Deposit of €500 will also be payable upon signing the Rental Agreement. This will secure the booking, and will cover the cost of (a) telephone and fax calls made on the house telephone during the tenancy, (b) replacing/making good any losses, breakages and/or damages incurred during the rental, (c) any exceptional cleaning work which may be required at the end of the tenancy. This Security Deposit will be refunded (less any deductions as outlined above) within 8 weeks of the tenancy’s conclusion.
Tenants should advise at the end of each rental of any losses, breakages and/or damages. This is in lieu of an inventory.
The balance of the rental charge is payable not less than 6 weeks prior to the start of the holiday. Failure to pay the deposit or balance in full by the due dates will constitute a cancellation of the holiday by the tenant. Please be sure to note the due dates of these payments as reminders are not routinely issued.
Bookings made less than 6 weeks prior to the arrival date must be paid in full at the time of booking.
All payments should be made in EUR (Euro) and all transfers of funds should be made net of any charges. This lease charge is including 10% VAT.
Cancellation by the Tenant
Cancellation of the booking by the tenant should be emailed to:
In the event of a cancellation, we will attempt to re-let the property and if successful, a discretionary payment may be made. However, we strongly recommend you take out holiday cancellation insurance.
- 25% (‘The Booking Deposit’) of the total booking amount is non-refundable.
- 75% of the total booking is refundable if cancelled 6 weeks (or 42 days) prior to the commencement of tenancy.
- 100% of the total booking amount will be charged if the stay is cancelled on or less than 14 days prior to the start date, or for a ‘no show’.
The Lessor is not obliged to pay any refund should the lessee cancel within 6 weeks of the commencement of tenancy. However the lessor will make every endeavour to re-lease the property for the period and reimburse the lessee up to the amount charged to the new lessee.
Note: this may well be less than the original charge due to the last minute nature of the new tenancy.
All reservations, amendments or cancellations are valid only if advised and accepted in writing.
In the event of a cancellation at any time prior to the commencement of the tenancy, the Security Deposit of €500 will be returned in full.
Cancellation by the Property Owner
We will endeavour to make sure the stated property is available for the dates contracted. In the unlikely event the property becomes not available and we have to cancel the booking, the property owner will endeavour to find the tenant suitable alternative accommodation. If suitable alternative accommodation cannot be found, the tenant shall be entitled to a full refund. The property owner shall only be liable to return the monies received. No compensation or consequential losses shall be paid.
Whilst every care is taken to provide a true and accurate description of the property, over time, alterations are made and some things do change. The tenant accepts that no refunds are available for such discrepancies.
We reserve the right to enter the property, at a reasonable time, in the event of an emergency or remedial repair work being required.
The property owner is entitled to ask the tenant to leave the property without any refund if, in the property owner’s opinion, the behaviour of the tenant and/or his/her party is unacceptable.
The property owner reserves the right to refuse entry to anyone, who in the property owner’s opinion is not suitable to or capable of taking charge of the property.
The property owner reserves the right to ask the tenant and their party to leave the property, without refund, should the behaviour of the tenant and/or their party be considered by the property owner to be unreasonable.
Number of Guests
The maximum number of people entitled to stay at this property is 13 and furthermore, only those people named on the booking form are entitled to stay. If it is found that more people than agreed are using the property, this will be considered a breach of contract and the tenant and his/her party will be asked to leave immediately without any refund. Sub letting or assignation of the let is prohibited.
Pets are allowed in the property subject to the property owner’s agreement. All pets must be house trained and the number and type of pet must not exceed what was agreed at the time of booking, otherwise a breach of contract will be deemed to have taken place.
Pets must not be left unaccompanied in the property at any time and must not be allowed on the beds or furniture. The tenant shall be liable for all damage caused by his/her pet or any pet belonging to the tenant’s party. A charge will be made for any additional cleaning required. The property owner cannot be held responsible for any accident or injury to a pet during their stay.

Safety & Insurance
You are the guardians of the property during your visit, so keep it safe for other families to enjoy.
Candles and fireplaces must be supervised and used in a safe manner:
- Always put the fire guards in place if you leave the room, if only for a minute.
- Always put out all candles if you leave the room, if only for a minute.
Our insurance policy requires that all windows are closed and outside doors are locked whenever tenants are away from the property.
Please close all sun umbrellas at night and on windy days – gusts of wind can blow them over and break them.
When open, windows should be secured against the wall – gusts of wind can otherwise cause broken panes. Equally, French windows should be kept closed on windy days and nights.
Note for guests with small children:
All the gates to the pool area are lockable. The entrance to the old mill can also be locked.
We hope the tenant and party will treat the property as they would their own home and at the end of the holiday the property is left in a clean and tidy condition. The property owner retains the right to make an additional charge for cleaning should the property not be left in a similar condition to the way it was found at the start of the holiday.
The tenant should make every effort to keep the property, fixtures and fittings and all contents in the same state of repair and condition as at the start of the holiday. Any accidental damage or breakages should be reported to the property owner (or their representative) prior to departure. The property owner retains the right to make an additional charge for damage and breakages although it should be noted that minor breakages and reasonable wear and tear (in the opinion of the property owner) will not be charged for.
Every endeavour is made to ensure your stay with us is memorable for all the right reasons. However, we do recognise that from to time things do go wrong. In these circumstances, it is the responsibility of the tenant to make any such problem known to the property owner (or their representative) immediately it becomes apparent, thereby giving the property owner the opportunity to correct the situation. Unless this procedure is followed, no subsequent claim will be entertained.
The property owner will make every endeavour to rectify any identified problems as soon as is reasonably possible.
