The contract of hire is between the hirer and the owner of the property for which the booking is made. Pissouri-villas.com are merely the advertising agents, the property owners retain full responsibility for the management and safety of the properties at all times as well as the provision of the advertised facilities.
The hirer shall be made subject to these Conditions, hire being for holiday purposes only.
1. Guests must arrive at the pre-arranged and mutually agreed time. We require that you vacate the property by 12.00 Noon on departure day in order that we have time to clean the property and arrange laundry for incoming guests. Key arrangements and directions will be given to you in advance of your holiday. Takeover time is from 4.00 p.m.
The change over day/arrival/departure time may be arranged by mutual agreement - in writing - if the villa has not been let in the preceding week.
All utility services and linen & house towels are included in the cost of your holiday. Please bring your own beach towels.
Great care is taken in the presentation and cleanliness of the property. The villas will be thoroughly cleaned between lets and should you be staying for two weeks, extra linen will be provided.
A deposit of 50% of the cost of the holiday, which is non refundable, should be made upon booking. The balance is due no later than eight weeks before the start of your holiday. It is the responsibility of the hirer to ensure all payments are made prior to the eight weeks before the commencement of your holiday. If the booking is made within eight weeks of the holiday commencement date, the full accommodation rental will be required. Upon receipt of deposit, bookings will be confirmed at which time the contract will have deemed to have been made and be subject to English law. The owner reserves the right to cancel a holiday booking where a deposit has been paid but full payment has not been received eight weeks before the holiday commencement date.
3. Cancellation by the hirer
If you are forced to cancel your holiday due to unforeseen circumstances, you must telephone us immediately and confirm the cancellation in writing by email or fax. Your cancellation is effective from the date we receive your written notification. In all cancellation situations the deposit is forfeited. We will make every endeavour to re-let the property but you will remain liable for full/part payment if we are only able to re-let part of the agreed period. You are strongly advised to take out cancellation and travel insurance for your holiday at the villa.
