Rates - Le Cerisier
Please note that we take 100.00Euros deposit at the time of your arrival. This is to cover electricity used during your visit. Any excess is handed back at the time of your departure. As a guide expect to pay between 30 and 40 euros in the summer and 40 to 120 in the winter months.
Our change-over day is Saturday. We ask you to vacate your cottage by midday so we can clean and prepare it for incoming guests, who are welcome to arrive at 4pm or later.
Once we have agreed availability, we ask you to reserve your cottage with a non-refundable 20% deposit (payable by cheque or on-line bank transfer). We will confirm your booking when the deposit has been received (and funds cleared).
We ask for the full payment 6 weeks before your holiday start date, and we will contact you with a reminder. Again, this is payable by cheque or on-line bank transfer.
Cleaning deposit / Electricity / Additional costs
When you arrive, we will collect a deposit of 100 euro cash (or sterling if you would prefer). The deposit will be returned on your day of departure (in whichever currency you provided), less any charges (see below).
(NB: We are not keeping track of exchange rates - but if you leave sterling with us, then on the day of departure, you have the option of paying the electricity with your remaining euros and having the original sterling deposit returned to you. This is simply because we understand that getting 100 euros cash back, just as you are leaving the country, might not be ideal).
Electricity: We charge electricity at cost. We feel this is fairer than adding a fixed levy which would have to allow for the odd guest who leaves the heating on and the windows open! The meter will be read when you arrive, and again when you leave and the electricity consumed will be charged at the rate we pay to EDF.
Firewood: We provide wood for your first night and sell additional wood at cost (70 euros per cubic metre). In a similar way to the electricity, we will view the woodpile before and after and we can gauge the usage together. Usage can vary enormously between families but averages out at around 20-30 euros for a week of fires. You are not under any obligation to buy our firewood and are welcome to bring your own or buy bags locally.
Cleaning: Final cleaning is included in the rental cost on the understanding that the property is left in good order. We do not expect you to be scrubbing toilets on the last day of your holiday, but we do ask that the cottage is left tidy (rubbish cleared, food removed, dishes done etc). If the list in the cottage has not been followed, we reserve the right to deduct 50 euros for our cleaners.
We regret that if you cancel your holiday, at any time, for any reason, we will not return your deposit.
We understand that sometimes exceptional circumstances mean you must cancel a holiday and we don't wish to add to this stress by leaving you out of pocket. However, we are a small business and last minute cancellations that cannot be resold leave us with losses. If you must cancel your holiday, after paying the full fee, we will attempt to refund some of the balance. We hope you find the following conditions fair:
If we are able to re-sell your holiday dates, we will refund your holiday balance (less the deposit).
If we are unable to re-sell your holiday dates, and your booking is in peak-season, we will refund only 50% of the balance.
If we are unable to re-sell your holiday dates, and your booking is off-season, we will refund 75% of the balance.
However, you can avoid a partial refund by leaving the funds with us and simply re-taking your holiday at a future date.
We understand that there are holiday insurances which can cover losses caused through cancellation, but we are unable to advise on these.
Rental rates are for the entire property.
