1.1. These general rental conditions (hereinafter the "General Conditions") apply to all rentals of guest rooms (hereinafter the "Rooms") concluded between the owner of the establishment (hereinafter the "Renter") and individual consumers (hereinafter the "Client(s)").

No special condition can, without the formal and written acceptance of the Hirer, prevail over the present General Conditions, so that all contrary conditions set by the Client will, in the absence of the Hirer's express acceptance, be unenforceable against the latter.

The Hirer reserves the right to modify at any time the present General Conditions, it being understood that the modifications will only be applicable to reservations made after the said modifications.

1.2. The present General Conditions are communicated to any Customer who requests them and are in any case available on the website of the Hirer:

They are also communicated at the time of the Room Reservation Confirmation to the e-mail address indicated by the Customer.

Any reservation of a room and in particular any payment of a deposit for the reservation implies the acceptance without reserve of the present General Conditions.

Consequently, the Client expressly acknowledges having been informed, prior to the reservation of the Rooms and the conclusion of the contract, in a legible and comprehensible manner, of the present General Conditions and of all the information listed in Article L.121-17 of the Consumer Code and in particular the following information:

  • the essential characteristics of the services and in particular of the rooms offered by the Renter;
  • the price of services and room rentals, as well as the means of payment accepted;
  • information on the identity, activity and contact details of the Renter;
  • information about the absence of a right of withdrawal.

1.3. The present General Conditions are written in the French language in their original version, which alone is authentic, taking precedence over any other version translated into a foreign language.

If any provision of these General Terms and Conditions is declared void or ineffective on any legal grounds by a court or any other authority, such a decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions.

Failure at any time to exercise any prerogative or right hereunder, or to require performance of any provision hereunder, shall in no event be construed as a modification of the contract or as an express or implied waiver of the right to exercise such prerogative in the future, or of the right to require strict performance of the covenants herein.

The rental services, the Rooms as well as all the accessory and/or complementary services likely to be proposed by the Hirer are the object of a precise description as to their specificities and their qualities on the Hirer's website.

Although the Renter makes every effort to ensure that the photographs on its website are accurate and up-to-date reproductions of its rooms and services, variations may occur due to the technical characteristics and color resolution of the photographs.

Similarly, for reasons of internal organization and in order to ensure the comfort of the Rooms and the renewal of furniture and equipment, the Renter may have to replace certain furniture and/or equipment shown in the photographs on the website.

The Client may not claim any compensation, nor question in any way the reservation made due to the inadequacies and delays in updating certain photographs on its website.

In any case, the Client has the possibility to ask the Hirer for any question and/or additional information on the details of the services and rooms offered by contacting the Hirer at the address mentioned in article 2 above.

Similarly, a specific estimate can be established by the Hirer taking into account the specificities of the requests and needs expressed by the Customer.

3.2. The Client is expressly informed that the Rooms offered by the Hirer are designed for a precise and determined number of persons.

Consequently, the Hirer may at any time, without engaging his responsibility in any way and for any reason whatsoever, refuse the entry and presence of additional persons in the Rooms initially rented.

The Client acknowledges and expressly accepts that the room rental services offered by the Renter are for a limited and determined period of time, so that he/she cannot claim, in any capacity and at any time, a right to remain in the premises.



It is expressly reminded that the Client can get acquainted with the precise description of the rental services and Rooms offered by the Renter, through the latter's website and/or by contacting the Renter according to the contact details mentioned in article 2 above.

Regardless of the method of contact, the Renter shall send to the Client, at the Client's postal address or e-mail address as indicated by the Client, a reservation confirmation (hereinafter the "Reservation Confirmation") containing details of the Room(s) reserved, the prices and payment terms, including the deposit referred to in article 4.2 hereinafter, as well as the present General Conditions.

The Client is informed of this obligation to pay and of the terms of payment in accordance with article 5.2 below, at the time of the Reservation Confirmation referred to in article 4.1 above.

Consequently, the payment of the total amount of the reservation by the Client and its collection by the Hirer firmly and definitively commits the Parties to the rental contract, subject to the stipulations of articles 4.5 and 4.6 below.

Any payment made by the Client is cashed upon receipt by the Hirer to firmly and definitively validate the reservation of the Room(s).

It is expressly reminded that the payment of the reservation amount by the Client entails the unconditional acceptance of the present General Conditions.

In accordance with Article L.121-21-8, 12° of the Consumer Code and notwithstanding the terms of modification and cancellation referred to in Articles 4.5 and 4.6 below, the Customer is expressly informed that he/she does not benefit from the legal right of withdrawal under Article L.121-21 of the Consumer Code.


4.5.1. Unless otherwise agreed by the Hirer, the reservations of Rooms made as well as the dates of arrival cannot be modified by the Client, as from their firm and definitive validation and in particular the collection of the total price of the reservation referred to in article 4.2 above.

In any case, the Client undertakes to inform the Hirer of any late arrival in relation to the date and time agreed upon and in any case after 7:00 p.m. in accordance with article 6.1 below.

In the absence of information and if the Client does not show up before the imperative arrival times mentioned in article 6.1 below, unless the owner has given a special agreement, the reservation will be deemed to have been cancelled by the Client and the owner will be able to freely dispose of the rooms.

  • Less than two (2) calendar days before the start date of the stay, the Renter retains the full price paid.

4.5.4. In any case, the Client undertakes to inform the Hirer of any modification and/or cancellation by any written means (letter, e-mail).


4.6.1. Given the management constraints specific to the reservation of Rooms and for reasons of security and/or temporary rehabilitation of the Rooms, the Renter reserves the right to change the Room initially reserved by a Room of the same capacity and standard or of a higher capacity and standard.
