1. PISO POMSOL: (“the Property”) is a 1st floor apartment with private balcony, plus communal pool and gardens.
The Property is offered for short-term holiday rental subject to confirmation by Mike & Bev Pomfret (“the Owners”) to the renter.
The booking contract is between the Owners and the party leader (“the Client”) who must be 25 years of age or over.

2. RESERVATIONS: A deposit of 50% of the Rental Charge is required to confirm your reservation.
We will reserve the dates booked in good faith for 48 hours but they will not be confirmed until we have received the booking form and the reservation deposit in cleared funds.
The booking form must be completed by the Client and returned to the Owners. Completion of the booking form indicates acceptance of the Booking and Payment Procedure / Terms and Conditions by the Client and that they have the authority to act on behalf of the persons named on the booking form including any substitutions or additions by any subsequent agreed amendments to the booking.

3. PAYMENT OF BALANCE: The balance of the Rental Charges must be paid at least 6 (six) weeks before the start of the Rental Period. If payment is not received by the due date, the Owners reserve the right to give notice in writing that the reservation is cancelled. The Client will remain liable to pay the balance of the Rental Charges unless the Owners are able to re-let the Property. In this event, Clause 9 of these terms and conditions will apply.
Please note that reservations made within eight (8) weeks of the start date of the rental require full payment at the time of booking.

4. THE SECURITY BOND: The Client is solely responsible for any and all damages, stains or breakage(s) that may be caused to the property or its contents and also for any non-return or loss of keys or loss of items in the inventory during their stay.
Therefore, a £200 refundable security bond will be held against such an eventuality, which is payable with the balance.

The property is inspected both before and at the end of each occupation and upon confirmation that all is in order and all keys have been returned to the Owners at the end of the rental period, this deposit will be refunded in full. The deposit will be returned to the Client by electronic bank transfer within fifteen (15) days.

Charges for damages/losses or any maintenance/repairs to the premises, equipment, amenities or fixtures necessitated by misuse or neglect will be at the discretion of the Owners and will be deducted from the security bond. In the event of any damage/loss that is assessed to be in excess of the security bond the Client will be held responsible for full reimbursement of the outstanding amount within fifteen (15) days.

There are fixed charges for loss of standard items that will be applicable. These are charged at cost.
(i) Garage Remote Control : €50

Changes to dates in higher tariff periods will be subject to the higher rental charge. Changes to dates in lower tariff periods made within 6 (six) weeks of the start of the rental period, will only be subject to the lower charge if we can re-let the initial higher tariff period.

(ii) Cancellation: Should you have to cancel your booking, then the following cancellation charges apply:

  • Within 7 (seven) days of receiving our confirmation, we will refund the full balance of any money you have paid us.

  • Less than 4 (four) weeks before the start of your holiday, 100% of Rental Charge.

Please see the Terms and Conditions sent when you booked.

However, if you do have to cancel your booking we will try to re-let the property. If we are successful in obtaining a replacement booking, you will be refunded based on the value of the new rental price which may be less than the rental price originally agreed with you.
The refund will be calculated as follows:-
a) the total amount paid by you for the booking;
a) less 10% administration fee (minimum fee £50);
b) less the difference in price between the clients’ booking and the replacement booking if the new booking is a lower value.

For example: A £1000 booking, fully paid, cancelled and re-let for £900, means that the original Customer will be refunded as follows:
£1000 – 10% booking fee equals £900, – £100 rebooking shortfall, = Refund of £800

In summary, if you have to cancel we will try to re-let your dates, but if we are unable to re-let the period of stay the following cancellation charges are applicable.
