Conditions générales


1.La propriété louée

La propriété louée est entièrement meublée avec des appareils ménagers, vaisselle, équipement de cuisine et changement de linge. La propriété est dans un état parfait et fonctionnel et doit être dans le même état sur CHECK-OUT. Nous nous attendons à ce que tous les clients traitent la propriété louée comme si c’était leur propre maison et laisser la propriété dans le bon ordre pour CHECK-OUT.

Si sur le Check OUT la propriété est jugée extrêmement sale ou désordonnée, puis un dernier frais de nettoyage supplémentaire peut être appliqué. SWEETSTAY (ici nommé « Société ») peut remplacer la propriété par une autre propriété de qualité identique ou supérieure pour les causes de force majeure ou pour toute circonstance indépendante de sa volonté, si la Société n’est pas en mesure de garantir l’utilisation du bien par le Client. Si le Client a des motifs raisonnables et justifiés de refuser la propriété offerte par voie de remplacement, la Société remboursera au Client la totalité du montant payé. Aucune autre quantité de nature quelconque ne doit être due par la Société au Client.


2. Dépôt de garantie

Le client devra fournir les détails de sa carte de crédit au check in pour le dépôt de garantie. Les informations de la carte de crédit sont conservées comme mesure de mise en garde et ne sont utilisées que pour couvrir les coûts si des dommages sont trouvés ou si des objets de valeur sont manquants ou endommagés. Si aucun dommage n’est trouvé, les informations de carte de crédit seront détruites.

Veuillez noter que pour les séjours de plus de 14 jours, le dépôt de garantie est égal au dépôt de garantie standard fois deux. Pour les séjours de plus de 30 jours, le dépôt de garantie est égal à la location du premier mois et doit être payé par virement bancaire.

En cas de rupture de contrat ou de frais de location impayés, le montant du dépôt sera conservé partiellement ou en totalité pour couvrir les revenus de perte encourus par la Société.


3. Duration

The duration of the Contract is indicated by the CHECK IN and OUT dates. Only in the case of letting periods of 30 days or more, a contract registration fee (1% of the total rental amount with a minimum of 33,50 EUR +30 EUR in stamps), obligatory under the Italian law, will apply. The Client will also be required to sign a standard tourist rental contract only for letting periods of 30 days or more.


4. Terms of Payment

To confirm the booking of the Rented Property, the Company requires at least 30% of the total Rental fee. This can be paid directly online by credit card (VISA / MASTERCARD / AMERICAN EXPRESS) or through PAYPAL*.

The remaining 70% balance of the total Rental fee is due 30 days before arrival by the same methods as above.
The price showed in the website is the final one and the fee is already included.
- If the Client books a property and the Check In date is less than 30 days away he/her will be asked to submit the 100% rental fee upon booking.

*Payments through PAYPAL might be charged with a 3% fee to cover the transaction costs.


5. Cancellation Policy

Non Refundable Reservation Policy: the guest will be charged the total price at the time of the reservation and no refund is due.

Please note that, if not specified at the time of the booking, all reservations are to be considered NON refundable.

Only when specified prior to booking:

Flexible Cancellation policy 30 days

(Strict Cancellation policy 60 days)

If a booking is totally cancelled then the cancellation penalty is calculated on the total rental fee. In case of a partial cancellation (staying one or more days less for example) the cancellation is calculated based on the difference between the original total rental price and the new total rental price for the new dates of stay.

6. CHECK-IN & CHECK-OUT
