  1. If the Tenant, even after a reminder, has not adhered to the payment terms. FranceComfort may charge the cancellation costs to the Tenant.

FranceComfort can terminate the Rental Agreement without due observance of a notice period if the Tenant and/or Co-Tenant(s), despite a reminder, continuously cause disruption during their stay, does not behave as good Tenant, causes serious nuisance to fellow guests and/or the environment or behaves contrary to the agreement in such a way that immediate dissolution of the agreement is justified. This is also the case if, for example, the lives of other people are put in danger. In these cases, the Total Amount will be forfeited.
  5. As a result of force majeure such as (but not limited to) war, a natural disaster, floods, extraordinary weather, fire, strikes, death of an owner, unannounced sale and/or use of the Holiday Home by the new Owners, due to serious circumstances (serious circumstances are circumstances that are of such a nature that further binding between FranceComfort and the agreement cannot be achieved).

If the adjustment is not accepted by the Tenant, he/she has the right to cancel the booking free of charge.

  5. If FranceComfort is informed of any changes regarding the facilities, they will process this information on the website immediately.

Disabled and handicapped people

  1. Wheelchair users and disabled people are requested to indicate in as much detail as possible which requirements they would like the Holiday Home to meet. This is the only way a decision can be made on if the desired Holiday Home is suitable for the user.
  2. FranceComfort can only advise the user in regard to this and therefore cannot be held liable if the Holiday Home is not sufficiently suitable and or adapted as expected.

Vessels

  1. You can, in essence, take your vessel abroad with you without any problems. The vessel must however meet the local safety requirements and you must be in possession on site with of all necessary documents.
  2. You must inform yourself before departure if the vessel you want to take with you is allowed to be used on the water you have planned to sail on.
  3. Consult with FranceComfort or the Manager in advance whether placement of your vessel is permitted on the park.
  4. FranceComfort is not liable for any problems that arise due to not correctly carrying out the above.

Satellite TV and Cable TV

  1. Almost all Holiday Homes have satellite or cable TV.

  3. FranceComfort strives to make as many international channels as possible available, but cannot be held liable if the amount of channels is none or insufficient in some cases.

Complaints

  1. Despite FranceComfort’s care and effort, the Tenant may (in their opinion) have a justified complaint with regard to the Holiday Home.
  2. The procedure is as follows:
    1. If the Holiday Home does not meet expectations, report this immediately to the Manager. The Tenant must first try to find a solution with the Manager on site.
    2. If the Tenant and the Manager cannot reach an agreement or the established complaint cannot be resolved on the spot with the Manager, the Tenant is required to contact FranceComfort within 24 hours. FranceComfort will, if necessary, report the complaint to the Owner and mediate between the Owner and the Tenant in order to try to reach an amicable solution, as a best effort obligation. FranceComfort will do their best to resolve the complaint to the satisfaction of the Tenants, within its capabilities, provided that this solution is reasonably feasible and does not entail excessive costs. If you fail to inform FranceComfort within 24 hours that the Holiday Home does not meet expectations, you will lose the right to compensation.   
    3. Complaints reported to FranceComfort after the rental period has expired, will no longer be considered.
  3. The Tenant must at all times give FranceComfort  the opportunity to provide a suitable solution for the complaint. Early departure, without prior consultation with the Manager and FranceComfort and a mutual agreement, indemnifies FranceComfort, the Owner and his Manager from the acceptance of any complaint or the request of any form of refund.
  4. If, after reporting the complaint to FranceComfort, the complaint cannot be solved on site, the complaint must be sent to FranceComfort in writing and motivated and supported by photos, no longer than 2 weeks after the rental period has ended!

  6. FranceComfort is not liable for transport and /or accommodations costs whilst en route.  
  7. If the Tenant does not comply with the Terms and Conditions set in this article, he/she will lose their right to compensation. This all is only the case if there was any right to compensation in the first place.
