Important: A booking can only be confirmed once the deposit has been paid (or the full amount if within 30 days of arrival).

50% of rental cost is due at the time of booking.

The balance must be paid not less than 30 days prior to your arrival at the property. Bookings taken within 30 days of your arrival at the property must be paid in full at the time of booking.


If you need to cancel your booking the party leader must do so immediately in writing or by email Select Villas. Cancellation charges are as follows:
The deposit paid is non refundable: 30%
Between 60 and 30 days prior to arrival: 60% of the total rental
Less than 30 days prior to arrival: 100% of the total rental


1. The property known as “Mas St Julien”, (hereafter ‘the Property’) is offered for holiday rental subject to confirmation by the owner Société 26 Worldwide (‘the Owner’) to the renter (‘the Client’). Select Villas will act on behalf of the Owner.

2. To reserve the property the Client should (1) complete and sign the booking form and return it to Select Villas and (2) make payment to Select Villas of the initial non-refundable deposit (50% of the total rent due). Following receipt of the booking form and deposit, Select Villas will on behalf of the Owner send an email confirmation of the booking and statement of the remaining balance. This is formal acceptance of the booking.

3. The balance of the rent is payable not less than 30 days before the start of the rental period. If payment is not received by the due date, the Owner reserves the right to give notice in writing that the reservation is cancelled. The client will remain liable to pay the balance of the rent unless the Owner is able to re-let the Property. In this event, Clause 4 of these booking conditions will apply. Reservations made within eight weeks of the start of the rental period require full payment at the time of booking.

4. Subject to Clauses 2 and 3 above, in the event of a cancellation, refunds of amounts paid will be made if the Owner is able to re-let the Property and any expenses or losses incurred in so doing will be deducted from the refundable amount.
The Client is strongly recommended to arrange a comprehensive travel insurance policy (including cancellation cover) and to have full cover for the party’s personal belongings, public liability etc, since these are not covered by the Owners insurance.

5. Cancellation terms:
If you need to cancel your booking the party leader must do so immediately by email to Select Villas as the Owners representative. Cancellation charges are as follows:
The deposit paid is non-refundable: 30%
Between 60 and 30 days prior to arrival: 60% of the total rental
Less than 30 days prior to arrival: 100% of the total rental.

a) 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 therefore highly recommended for guests to take out travel insurance that will cover you and your party for any losses, costs or expenses (including medical expenses), pre-existing medical conditions, missed or disrupted travel arrangements, loss of baggage and money and other expenses, additional accommodation or travel expenses.
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.

b) The rental period shall commence at 4pm on the first day and finish at 10am on the last day.

The Owner reserves the right to charge an additional cleaning fee to cover additional cleaning costs if the Clients leaves the Property in an unacceptable condition.
