This information will be sent either by email to the email address of the party leader or by post to their home address. Belles Villas en Bretagne will let you know what alternative arrangements can be made to replace the services that cannot be provided. You can then either cancel the contract without penalty and get an immediate refund of monies paid, or accept the alternatives provided. If you accept the alternative, an amendment will be made to the contract. If as a result of this change, the price of your stay is reduced, we will reimburse you any amount overcharged. We require acknowledgement of your acceptance of these changes.
If during the holiday we are unable to provide a major part of the services you paid for that would represent a significant percentage of the price paid, we will:
Offer alternative services by absorbing, where appropriate any additional charge or by paying part of the price if the price of the services provided is less than that of those that had been agreed.
Or, if we cannot offer replacement services or if you refuse our offer, we will then, at no extra cost ensure you return to your property or any other properties we agree together to move you and your party.

Cancellations due to government public health measures
In the event of cancellation by the guests, full payment of the rent remains due.
All natural risks or epidemics preventing or prohibiting access to the property are part of the travel risks and cannot be considered as cases of force majeure to cancel the reservation free of charge.

It is your responsibility to check that your insurance provides you with adequate cover and we recommend that that at the very least your insurance covers cancellation by you, the cost of assistance (including repatriation) in the event of accident or illness. You will need to make sure that such insurance covers you for access to health services not covered by a valid GHIC or EHIC if you have one.
If you have any questions in relation to this, these should be raised with your travel insurance provider.
