BOOKING, DEPOSIT & PAYMENT 

1. A deposit of 50% of the total rental cost will be payable initially at the time of the booking, with 

the balance payable two months prior to your arrival date. If these payment dates are not adhered 

to, then the booking deposit may be forfeited without prejudice to our legal right to claim the 

balance of the rental. Receipt of all or part of the money due does not constitute acceptance of a 

booking. After receipt of the deposit and upon signed acceptance of the Peycibeau Terms & 

Conditions, a booking confirmation / receipt will be issued as acceptance of your reservation. 

We reserve the right to refuse any booking. 


2. If the booking is made within 60 days of the arrival date, the total rental cost is due at the time

transfers and international PayPal transfers both incur additional charges to us of 5.5% which must 

be paid for by the guest at the time of the transfer. We do not accept credit cards. 


4. The details of the property, by way of descriptions & photographs, are as accurate as possible 

and have not been enhanced in any way. If guests have further enquiries about the details of the 

accommodation, these will also be answered truthfully. However should you arrive at the property 

and, for some personal reason dislike or disapprove of it, and decide not to stay, then the whole of 

your rental payment will be forfeited, owing to the fact that this period could have otherwise been 

renting out successfully. If guests have any complaints about the quality of the property, these 

should be voiced as soon as possible after arrival so that they can be rectified immediately. 


SECURITY DEPOSIT 

5. A  security deposit of 500€  for any damage or breakages will be required, in the form of cash, 

on arrival. These will be repaid less any amount to cover costs for 

damage or breakages


6. An additional security deposit of 500€ will be required from guests renting the Grande-maison or 

Main house, should they wish to have the use of the snooker table. The snooker table is only to be 

used by responsible adults and fully supervised adolescents. 

INSURANCE 

7. Guests renting the Grande-Maison or the Main House are advised to take out additional insurance 

to cover cancellation and any serious accidental damage to the property that might occur during
