Seasonal title

The parties declare that the premises covered by this contract are rented furnished on a seasonal basis.

The present lease does not concern premises rented for main residential use or for mixed professional and main residential use. Consequently, they agree that their respective rights and obligations will be governed by the stipulations of the present contract, by the modified decree of 28 December 1976 and, failing that, by the provisions of the civil code.

Tenants’ commitments

The tenants agree to:

  • Respect the capacity of the accommodation, i.e. A maximum of 10 people allowed on site during the entire stay. The property is insured for a maximum of 10 people, therefore we would not be able to give you the keys on arrival if there were more people. If during your stay, this maximum capacity of 10 persons is not respected, we will not be able to give you the keys, a lump sum of €1,500 will automatically be deducted from your deposit as compensation.,
  • To respect the purpose of the house and not to make any changes to the layout of the furniture and the premises,
  • Refrain from throwing objects into washbasins, bathtubs, sinks and toilets that could obstruct the pipes, failing which they will be liable for the cost of restoring the equipment to working order (septic tank: do not throw anything into the toilets apart from paper and do not throw anything into the washbasins and showers)
  • To authorise the Landlord, or any third party appointed by him for this purpose, to carry out, during the rental period, any repairs required by the urgency of the situation. The Tenant shall not be entitled to claim any reduction in the rent in the event that urgent repairs incumbent on the Landlord appear during the rental period.
  • Agree to a visit to the dwelling if requested by the landlord or his agent,
  • Waive all recourse against the lessor in the event of theft and damage to the rented premises
  • Respect arrival and departure times:

Signature of the contract and payment of the deposit.

The signing of the contract and the payment of the deposit are irrevocably binding on both parties.

No termination is possible without the written agreement of both parties. If the lessee renounces the lease, he/she remains liable for the full rent. However, in the event of damage to the accommodation (water damage, fire, flooding, etc.) or of works to the building making it unfit for rental, the lessor reserves the right to cancel the stay. The sums paid by the lessee will be refunded in full by the lessor. The lessee waives any claim for damages due to the cancellation of his stay. In the event of the Lessor’s withdrawal, the Lessor shall be obliged to pay the Tenant double the deposit within seven days of the withdrawal (this shall not apply in the event of an accident or force majeure).

1. The Tenant shall use the rented accommodation peacefully. The Tenant shall avoid any noise that may disturb the neighbours, in particular that emitted by radios, speakers, video projectors, televisions and other equipment, and shall respect the maximum number of persons that may stay in the premises.
2. The Tenant shall maintain the rented accommodation and return it in a good state of cleanliness and repair at the end of the contract.
All facilities are deemed to be handed over to the Tenant in working order and any complaint concerning them occurring more than 24 hours after the Tenant has taken possession of the premises will not be accepted.
Where applicable, the Landlord shall be entitled to claim from the Tenant on departure the cost of cleaning the rented premises and its equipment, the total value at replacement cost of broken, cracked, chipped or deteriorated objects, furniture or equipment and those whose wear and tear exceeds normal wear and tear for the duration of the rental.

  • The Tenant shall have no recourse against the Landlord in the event of theft or damage to the rented premises.
  • The Tenant agrees to insure the accommodation against rental risks for the duration of the stay and for all occupants (holiday insurance) and to provide the Lessor with a certificate before entering the premises (to be sent by e-mail 8 days before the first day of the stay).

  • At the latest when entering the premises, the Tenant shall give the Landlord the amount of the security deposit intended to cover damage and/or deterioration of the accommodation and the furniture and objects furnishing the accommodation caused by the Tenant, as well as the loss of keys or objects. The security deposit will be returned to the Tenant within a maximum period of one month after his/her departure, after deduction, where applicable, of the sums covering damage and/or deterioration to the accommodation and to the furniture and objects furnishing the accommodation, caused by the Tenant, as well as the loss of keys or objects. The security deposit will be given in the form of a bank cheque.
  • The Tenant may not object to the arrival of a service provider/craftsman whose intervention is necessary and/or planned (swimming pool operator, gardener, or other…).
