VILLA BOOK: There is a very comprehensive Villa Book section on our other website. (villa-stbarts.com) It contains the answer to most questions but do not hesitate to ask our housekeeper or the agency for help.
*IMPORTANT* ARRIVAL is always P.M. - DEPARTURE is always A.M.
RESERVATIONS: A reservation is a 14-night OPTION and will be marked as CONFIRMED when your deposit is received. If no deposit is received the option will be lapse.
PAYMENT: By bank transfer only. All US clients paying in USD, will be asked to use our US Bank named Wise. We will give other clients paying in Euros or Sterling the necessary Bank details at the time of the reservation. Using a Bank Transfer is the easiest and most secure way to send funds to another bank.
DEPOSIT: A deposit of 30% is required to confirm your reservation.
BALANCE: The balance must be sent to us at least 2 months before your arrival date. This includes the 5% room tax. If we have not received the total balance by then we reserve the right to relet the villa. Your deposit and all funds remitted will be forfeited. The room tax will be refunded if paid.
VILLA RATES: Rates are per week and nights are charged at 1/7th the weekly rate. A booking that spans two seasons is charged at the nightly rates applicable for the season.
ROOM TAX: "Taxe de Séjour" or "Room Tax" - Which we send to the local government, is payable with the balance. You will be informed of the amount. In case of an annulation, the room tax (if paid in advance) will be refunded.
LAST MINUTE BOOKINGS: A discount is offered for last-minute bookings (20% less than 4 weeks from arrival or 10% less than 8 weeks from arrival) - Payment in is full required at time of booking.
INSURANCE - We strongly advise you to take out HOLIDAY INSURANCE for the following reasons :
DEPOSITREFUNDS: We will only refund a deposit if your annulation is more than 6 months from your arrival date.
CANCELLATIONS: Should you have to cancel less than six months from your arrival date, we will only make a refund equal to the amount recovered by us and only if we are able to relet the rooms, less 20%. In case of an annulation (by you or us), the room tax (if paid in advance) will be refunded. You may, of course, change the occupants yourself - to your friends or family etc. at no charge.
SUBSEQUENT CANCELLATIONS: Should you have cancelled once we will gladly relet the villa to you. However, we will insist on the total rental be paid at the time of booking which will be non-refundable. Holiday cancellation insurance is therefore highly recommended.
SECURITY DEPOSIT: No Security deposit is required but we do expect you to pay for any important breakages or damage before leaving. Please contact us or get our housekeeper to do so and we will discuss the problem. Normally minor damage is not counted.

1 or 2 BEDROOMS: Both bedrooms are available during your stay.
PROBLEMS: During your stay, should there be a problem, or where you request a refund for any reason, this will be dealt with after you have left. This is done in order that we can investigate the problem and ascertain the cause and responsibility. It is not possible to come to a decision when the parties concerned live on different continents and when the facts are not verifiable immediately.
REPEAT BOOKINGS : We give all clients a first choice on the same dates for the following year, for example, if your arrival was a Saturday, then even if the following year the date falls on say a Friday or a Sunday, we will expect the period to start with the Saturday. This option is open for 1 month from the date you leave. After this, we will try to accommodate you but cannot promise to give you the exact dates again. NOTE This does not apply to last-minute bookings.
SWIMMING POOL and SPA: Please use the pool responsibly. There is a POOL ALARM which is a FRENCH LEGAL REQUIREMENT. You will be shown how it works but it is your responsibility to ensure that it is SWITCHED ON and WORKING. If there is an accident we, the owners, deny all responsibility. It is your responsibility to ensure that the alarm is turned on. If the alarm is faulty, you must report this to us immediately, again you are responsible.
CHILDREN: Please bear in mind that both bedrooms open directly onto the terrace and it is your responsibility to ensure that the pool alarm is turned on and the Spa or Jacuzzi cover is in place. The alarm is only an aid. The best guardian is you. You are the only people responsible for the children in your care.
SMOKING: Smoking is not allowed in the bedrooms nor in the lounge (The next guest will certainly know and not be happy) If you have to smoke please do so on the terrace, relaxed in a lounger!
