Terres de France accepts pets in all its residences for an additional fee. Category 1 and 2 dogs are not accepted. All animals must be vaccinated and kept on a leash and remain under the sole control of their master. A maximum of 2 animals per accommodation is imperative. Terres de France reserves the right to charge for any damage or nuisance caused by the presence of the animal in the residence or the accommodation, whether it is breakage or cleanliness. Terres de France will not be held responsible for any breach of this rule.
Article 10 : Deposit & inventory
As part of your stay, two deposits will be required upon arrival, one of 250 € for accommodation and the other of 55 € for cleaning. Terres de France cannot be held responsible for any dispute concerning the deposit for the accommodation. The same goes for the policy concerning the inventory of the apartments. The form that will be given to you upon arrival will attest to your approval of the policy of the establishment.
Article 11 : Responsibility
We would like to inform you that the rental in a Tourist Residence is not the responsibility of the hoteliers. Consequently, the responsibility of the establishments and of the Terres de France group cannot be engaged in case of loss, theft or degradation of personal effects in its Residences, hotels, camping or group lodgings, as well as in the apartments as in the parking lots or the common premises (bicycle room…).
The statute of limitations for sums due does not fall within the scope of the hotel statute of limitations (Article 2272 of the Civil Code). As an exception to article 2244 of the Civil Code, the sending of a registered letter by the Terres de France Group or one of its establishments to any client who owes money interrupts the statute of limitations applicable in such matters.
Article 12 : General obligations of the customer
All customers must read and accept the internal regulations of the establishments and must comply with them. These rules are freely available for consultation in each establishment and are established by the establishment itself. Terres de France cannot be held responsible for the non-respect of these rules by its clients.
We advise you to systematically close your windows, doors and bay windows to avoid any inconvenience. The Terres de France group or one of its establishments cannot be held responsible in case of theft, damage or loss of personal belongings. In the event of a visit or stay of guests (within the limits of the capacity of our apartments), we ask you to inform the reception.
Any reservation and taking possession of an accommodation in one of the establishments of the Terres de France group or in a partner establishment, necessarily implies the acceptance of the present reservation and rental conditions.
