The gites details are as contained in the site. La Mer will be available from the 4th May 2002. Prices are per gites per week and the week runs from Saturday to Saturday. If you require any other dates please contact us.


A Security/Damage deposit of £60.00 is also payable when the balance is paid and will be returned to you within seven days of your return. This deposit is to cover any damages, breakages and cleanliness etc. The gites are to be left in a clean and tidy condition on departure, failing which a sum of £25.00 will be deducted from your deposit for cleaning.


The cottages are available from 4.00pm on the first day of your holiday and are to be vacated by 10.00am on the day of departure unless otherwise agreed.

Duvets and pillows are provided, however, guests are asked to bring their own linen, towels and tea towels.



Booking Form Click here to go to form.




All bookings are subject to these conditions except by prior arrangements confirmed in writing by the Agent. E mail or telephone bookings will be held for four clear days to allow for receipt of the completed booking form and the initial deposit. A deposit is payable upon booking.

The balance of the monies must be paid at least six weeks before the beginning of the commencement of the rental period, failing which the deposit will be forfeited and the hiring cancelled and this is at the discretion of the agent. One reminder will be sent when the balance falls due and has not been received. When bookings are made six weeks or less in advance, the whole of the hire charge must be paid on booking.



£60.00 deposit is payable with the final balance to be held against any breakages or damages. The deposit is returnable within seven days of the end of the rental period if everything is in order, subject to any necessary deductions for damages or extras not separately paid for. If there are any charges in excess of the breakage deposit the hirer agrees to reimburse the Owner. Any substantial damage caused by the hirer, the hirer`s family or the hirer`s invitees or behaviour of an unacceptable type will result in immediate eviction without compensation and a claim for loss and damages by the owner. In this event neither the Owner nor the will have any further contractual obligation to the hirer.



Hirings normally run from 4.00pm on the first day of the hire period to 10.00am on the last day of the hire period. The number of persons staying in a property must not exceed the number specified in the literature provided for each property unless by prior agreement with the owner.



Hire charges are inclusive of water, gas and electricity charges (where appropriate) in high season. Gas and electricity in all seasons will be metered on consumption. Unreasonably high consumption will be charged from the £ 60.00 deposit at cost. Unreasonable consumption will be determined by, and at the sole discretion of the owner`s agent. Hirer`s are expected to leave holiday accommodation clean and tidy. We would ask you to undertake a minimum of cleaning before your departure. This should include tidying, washing up, vacuuming or other floor cleaning, cleaning of showers, wash basins and WCs, cookers, the removal of rubbish and tidying of bed linen. If the property needs any major cleaning after your stay you will be charged for this and the amount will be deducted from your damage deposit.


6. LINEN Sheets, duvet covers, pillow cases and towels are not provided. The hirer should provide these items.


7. FACILITIES Every effort has been made to ensure that descriptions of the owner`s properties and nearby facilities are accurate. However, the Owner cannot accept any liability for any changes. Conditions in rural France are often different from those in England (for example, plumbing is not renowned for its efficiency) and the owner cannot be held responsible for technical problems, nor can they accept any responsibility for animals, birds, insects which may be present in or around the property. The use of the accommodation and the amenities, where offered (such as bicycles, etc) is entirely at the hirers`/users` risk. Hirers and their parties leave personal belongings in or around the property entirely at their own risk and the Owner cannot be held responsible for any injuries or losses however caused.



Bookings are made on the understanding that the accommodation booked will be available for the dates specified. If, due to circumstances beyond the owner`s or the Agent's control, this is not possible, every effort will be made to provide alternative accommodation. Failing this, the owner will make a prompt and full refund of all money paid, and there will be no claim against the owner.


In the event of cancellation by the hirer, the owner will do everything in their power to relet the property and refund the monies paid. If the property is unable to be relet, then a charge will be made of 25% if cancellation occurs more than six weeks before the holiday begins and 100% if less than six weeks.



The Owner strongly recommends that hirers arrange the appropriate holiday insurance.



In the unlikely event of a complaint about the property, this should be reported to our local agent or the owner as soon as possible in order to give the agent a chance to deal with the complaint. Failure to do this will result in the owner or his agent being unable to deal with the complaint. Complaints cannot be accepted after a hirer has returned home and there has been no opportunity to put matters right during the hire period.
