If a booking is made less than 8 weeks before the start of the journey, the entire remaining amount including the deposit must be paid within 7 days.

4. Changes / cancellations by the lessor

Should the landlord be forced to cancel the booking due to circumstances beyond his control or due to sales of the property, the deposit received from lessee is fully refundable. The lessor is not liable for any claims for damages, nor for the reimbursement of travel expenses already made.

5. Cancellation by the lessee

It is agreed that in case the lessee wants to cancel the booking in whole or in parts, or that the booking is canceled by us due to non-payment, we are entitled to the following percentage of the travel price:
8 weeks or more before the start of the journey - Deposit (500CHF);
8-4 weeks before departure - 50% of the booking amount;

The lessee commits to treat the property with care and to use its contents and facilities in an appropriate manner. Leave the property and inventory in a clean and tidy condition, just as you would like them to be. On departure, the refrigerator and dishwasher must be cleared out and the sheets must be removed from the beds. The final cleaning is included in the rent.
If the lessee wants to have the Villa Vals cleaned during the visit, we would be happy to make an offer.
The lessee commits to behave considerately towards the neighbors and
to respect their peace and privacy at all times.

7. Deposit
The Deposit is CHF 1000 (€ 1500 for commercial / special rentals) and will be pre-authorized (not debited) on your credit card during your stay. In the event of damage of any kind to the property or its inventory, the costs for restoration, replacement and reinstallation will be charged to the deposit.

8. Liability

The lessor also assumes no liability for the failure of the supply of water, electricity, internet and electrical devices, although he will do his best to solve the problem.
