Reservations and payments
Reservations can be made using the contact form on the website or by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The owners will then provide a summary of the rental costs, the applicable security deposit and the end cleaning costs (to be paid locally).
Based on the information provided by the tenant a Reservation form will be prepared including all relevant information on the guests and the bank accounts to be used for the payments and the refund of the security deposit.
The booking will be made by the tenant through a pre-payment of 30% of the rental costs and the security deposit. The receipt of the pre-payment will be confirmed by way of a Booking form.
The remaining 70% will be due 7 weeks before arrival date. After receipt of this amount the tenant will receive a final booking confirmation together with detailed contact information and a route description.
In case of late payment of the amounts due, the tenant will automatically be in default and receive a notification by e-mail. If the amount due is not paid within 7 days, the agreement will automatically be dissolved.
The end cleaning costs are to be locally to the property manager prior to the check-out and can not be settled with the security deposit.
In case of a late cancellation (in the period of 7 weeks before arrival date), the tenant will be required to pay the full amount of the rental costs. Cancellation of a booking by the tenant is also regarded as a cancellation on behalf of the co-tenants. Any pre-payment of the security deposit will be refunded.
In case of an early cancellation (prior to the period of 7 weeks before arrival date), the tenant will required to pay 30% of the rental costs. Any pre-payment of the security deposit will be refunded.
In case of no show, the tenant will be required to pay the full amount of the rental costs. Any pre-payment of the security deposit will be refunded.
We advise our guests to enter into a travel insurance policy to cover any cancellation costs due to unforeseen circumstances.
Arrival and departure
The changeover day is Saturday and guest are expected to arrive between 16:00 and 19:00 hrs. The tenant is requested to contact the property manager approximately 2 hours before the expected arrival time. Arrivals after 19:00 hrs will only be possible in close consultation with the property manager and may lead to additional costs. We ask the tenant to pay any additional costs for a late arrival directly to the property manager.
Departures are expected before 10.00 hrs. The property manager will do the check-out together with the tenant. The check-out is intended to handle a number of practical matters, such as handing in the keys, depositing the linen and payment of the end cleaning costs. In addition, any defects and/or damages will need to be reported to the property manager. We also request the tenant to report any missing goods or keys. The tenant will be held liable to compensate the owners for any damages or loss caused.
We advise our tenants to take notice of the departure checklist in the Information Guide of Borgo La Casa when preparing the departure.
The security deposit will be transferred to the bank account of the tenant within 3 days after departure date, taking into account the settlement of any damages to the holiday home as such or the content of the holiday home.
Number of guests

If, without permission of the owners, more guests will stay in the villa, the tenant will automatically be in default of his/her obligations under the rental agreement and he/she will be held liable to pay extra costs.

The owners do not accept any liability for any damage to the tenant as a result of deviations in the description of the holiday home, or the facilities at Borgo La Casa, or any inconveniences while staying at the property, unless these inconveniences are of such a nature that they will affect the essence of the rental agreement. In this case, the liability will be limited to any direct damages. Any form of consequential damage will be excluded.
