*    The balance, plus breakages etc deposit, is paid eight weeks prior to your holiday.  A letter of receipt will be sent. 
*    We request a security deposit cheque of £100 against substantial breakages and cleaning.   This is sent with your balance, eight weeks before your holiday.  It will not be cashed.  If all is well, your cheque will be returned within two weeks of your holiday.

2     Cancellation

You may cancel the booking at any time if the cancellation is made by the person who made the booking and subject to the following conditions:

Only the deposit is forfeit if the booking is cancelled between the time of the booking and 8 weeks prior to commencement;

If cancellation is made between 8 and 6 weeks prior to commencement, 50% of the total cost of accommodation will be forfeit;

If cancellation is made between 6 and 4 weeks prior to commencement, 75% of the total cost of accommodation will be forfeit;

If cancellation is made later than 4 weeks prior to commencement of the letting or after the letting has commenced, the entire cost of accommodation will be forfeit.

We advise taking out holiday insurance, which covers cancellation as well as other eventualities.  In French law, it is the individual who must be covered by insurance, not the proprietors, although we are insured.
