terms of sales

1. Subject These general terms and conditions define the rights and obligations of the parties in the context of the remote reservation of services offered by the bed and breakfast Le Tilleul on its Site and its Mobile Services. They govern all the steps required for the reservation and the follow-up of the reservation between the contracting parties. All reservations therefore imply the client's full and unreserved acceptance of these conditions. All clients acknowledge that they have the capacity to contract, i.e. that they are of legal age and are not under guardianship or trusteeship. The names chambres d'hôtes Le Tilleul and www.chambresdhotesletilleul-vendee.com refer throughout this text to the site named www.chambresdhotesletilleul-vendee.com and corresponding to the domain name that can be consulted at www.chambresdhotesletilleul-vendee.com.

2. Scope of application These general terms and conditions of sale apply to all bookings made over the Internet, via the Website or the Mobile Services and its partners.

3. Opposability of the general terms and conditions In any event, the version of the general terms and conditions of sale that is enforceable against the customer is the one in force at the time of his reservation on the Website or the Mobile Services or with its partners.

4. Booking Reservations can be made on the website, by telephone, by e-mail or by post. The reservation will only be effective if it is guaranteed by the customer, either by communicating a credit card number with validity date or by payment of a deposit, and after receiving a detailed booking confirmation. Payment for all services will be made directly to the establishment (exceptions made for prepaid bookings at the time of booking). The establishment reserves the right to refuse any reservation in the event that the credit card number is incorrect or the reservation is incomplete. Reservations, regardless of origin, will be payable in Euros only. The hotel accepts the following credit cards: Visa, Mastercard and American Express, and has a secure booking system (SSL) which protects and encrypts all sensitive data transmitted on booking to prevent disclosure to third parties. When the reservation is registered, a credit card debit authorisation will be made. This will be done for information purposes only and will in no way be a debit to the account except in the following cases: - Non-cancellable - non-refundable" promotional offer. - If the validity date of the credit card is prior to the date of arrival. If the date of arrival is more than 30 days from the date of booking. The client is solely responsible for the choice of services and their adequacy to his/her needs, so that the establishment cannot be held responsible in this respect.

5. Payment Guests must come to the establishment with the credit card that has been used to guarantee the reservation or to make the prepayment. The establishment may also ask the guest to show proof of identity in order to prevent credit card fraud. Payment is debited from the hotel during your stay, except in the case of special conditions or rates where payment is debited at the time of booking (online prepayment on certain rates). This prepayment is called a deposit. In the case of a rate that is not prepaid online, the establishment may ask the customer, upon arrival, for a deposit or authorisation to debit the credit card, in order to guarantee the payment of the sums corresponding to the services consumed on site. There are four possible methods of payment for the deposit: - either by cheque payable to the establishment and sent directly to the establishment - or by credit card - or by bank transfer - or by holiday voucher In this case, the reservation will only become firm and definitive on receipt of the deposit by the establishment, within the time limit. Payment of the balance of the stay will be made on site at the establishment.

6. Right of withdrawal The customer is reminded, in accordance with article L. 121-21-8 12° of the Consumer Code, that he does not have the right of withdrawal provided for in article L. 121-21 of the Consumer Code. The Terms and Conditions of Sale of the reserved tariff specify the terms and conditions for cancelling and/or modifying the reservation.

7. Modification of the stay Any change of reservation must be requested by email to the establishment or by telephone. The request will only become effective once the establishment has confirmed its acceptance in writing. In the event of a change of stay, the following conditions apply (except in cases of force majeure): - In case of no-show on the scheduled arrival date, your credit card will be debited for the first night's stay. - Any stay started is entirely due.

8. Cancellation of stay Any cancellation of a reservation must be requested by email to the establishment or by telephone. The request will only become effective once the establishment has confirmed its acceptance in writing. In the event of cancellation of a stay, the following conditions apply (except in cases of force majeure): - For any request made within 24 hours of the scheduled arrival date, the first night will be charged. - In case of no-show on the scheduled arrival date, your credit card will be charged the amount of the first night. - Any stay started is fully due.

9. Force majeure Force majeure is understood to mean any event that is unforeseeable, insurmountable and external to the parties that prevents either the client or the establishment from fulfilling all or part of the obligations provided for in the contract. Are considered as cases of force majeure or fortuitous events those usually recognised by the jurisprudence of the French Courts and Tribunals. Each party cannot be held responsible towards the other party in the event of non-performance of its obligations resulting from an event of force majeure. It is expressly agreed that force majeure suspends, for the parties, the execution of their reciprocal obligations and that each party shall bear the costs arising therefrom.

10. Prices Prices are indicated in Euros. The prices indicated only include the services strictly mentioned in the reservation. Any additional services provided by the establishment during the stay and, if applicable, the tourist tax will be added to the price mentioned in the booking. The applicable prices are those in force on the day of the reservation. The establishments, which are independent professionals, are free to vary their prices at any time. Only the price indicated in the booking confirmation is binding.

11. Complaints, disputes All complaints must be made to the establishment within 7 days of the date of stay. Failing recourse to the conventional mediation procedure or to any alternative method of dispute resolution within 30 days, either party may refer the matter to the competent judicial court.

12. Responsibilities It is the responsibility of the Establishment to take all guarantees and insurance necessary for the reception of the public in its Establishment and the exercise of its activity. The liability of the Establishment is limited in the event of theft of goods or objects when they have been entrusted to its custody only. The client must ensure the safekeeping of his goods and materials. The customer must inform the establishment of any damage caused by him/her. He is responsible for all damage caused by his intermediary and undertakes, in the event of damage to the premises made available (bedroom, common areas such as swimming pool, jacuzzi, garden, lounge, sanitary facilities) to bear the costs of repair. Also any behaviour contrary to good morals and public order will lead the establishment to ask the client to leave the establishment without any compensation and or without any reimbursement if a payment has already been made. If no payment has yet been made, the customer must pay the price of the nights consumed before leaving the establishment.   

13. Displacement

In the event of an exceptional event or the impossibility of making the reserved room available to the customer or in the event of force majeure, the establishment reserves the possibility of having the customer stay totally or partially in an establishment of an equivalent category, for services of the same nature and subject to the customer's prior agreement.

Any additional cost of the room, transport between the two establishments and a telephone call remain the responsibility of the establishment.
