On reservation you need to indicate exactly how many guests will stay in your gîte at Coulon Laurensac. If you also indicate the number of children, we can make sure the property corresponds exactly to your needs (number of sheets, etc.).

6. Cancellation by you
To avoid misunderstandings, we wish to remind you that a booking constitutes a legal contract. If you have to cancel due to the ill health of someone in your party or the death of a close relative or any other reason, you owe the following cancellation fees:
- more than twelve weeks before the start of the rental period 30% of the rent 
- as off twelve weeks before the start of the rental period or if you have to leave before the end of the rental period: 100% of the rent. After any cancellation the rented accommodation becomes availble to the owner.

7. Insurance
To be reimbursed for the financial consequences of cancellation we strongly recommend to subscribe to a cancellation insurance. It goes without saying that you have a travel insurance to cover all damages and claims resulting from your vacation.

8. Cancellation by us
It is extremely unlikely that we cancel a confirmed booking. If however, we do cancel a booking, we will inform you as soon as possible. In this case all monies paid by you will be refunded. If we do cancel your booking, our liability is limited to the cost of the original booking and we will not be responsible for any additional losses you suffer as a result of that cancellation.

9. On site presence
Although Chateau Coulon Laurensac is our home and we live here, we cannot guarantee an onsite presence. We are very often home but not always, so it is possible we won't be there during your stay.
