At the initiative of one of the Establishments :

In the event of an exceptional event or the impossibility of making the type of room reserved available to the Customer, or in the event of force majeure, the Company's establishment reserved may offer the Customer an accommodation solution in an establishment of at least equivalent category, or if it is of a lower category, a room of a higher standard than that originally reserved, for services of the same nature. In the event of non-acceptance of the proposed alternative solution, the Customer is free to request cancellation of the Service booked, in return for reimbursement of all sums paid by the Customer for the booking of the cancelled Service.


All guests staying at the establishment must be able to present valid identification upon check-in. Failure to do so may result in the Company's establishment refusing to rent the room and/or cancelling the reservation, without the possibility of reimbursement.

L’Etablissement pourra également lui demander de présenter une pièce d’identité à des fins de prévention des fraudes à la carte bancaire.
Si le Client n’a pas prépayé son séjour, l’Etablissement demandera au Client, lors de son arrivée, un dépôt de garantie ou une autorisation de débiter la carte bancaire en vue de garantir le séjour correspondant au montant total des nuitées réservées augmenté du montant forfaitaire par personne et par jour, variant selon l’Etablissement, en vue de garantir les éventuelles consommations supplémentaires.

The Company shall not be held liable to the Customer in the event of non-performance of its obligations resulting from an event of force majeure.
Likewise, the Customer shall not be liable to the Company in the event of non-performance of its obligations resulting from an event of force majeure.
It is expressly agreed that force majeure suspends the parties' performance of their mutual obligations, and that each party shall bear the costs arising therefrom. Force majeure or fortuitous events are those usually recognized by the jurisprudence of the French Courts and Tribunals, including but not limited to: any event of a climatic, bacteriological, military, political, economic, social or computer nature, of such magnitude, beyond the control of the parties, which could not be reasonably foreseen at the time of conclusion and the effects of which cannot be avoided by appropriate measures, preventing performance of a contractual obligation.
The reserved Establishment may offer the Customer accommodation in an Establishment of at least equivalent category, or if it is of a lower category, a room of a higher level than that originally reserved, for services of the same nature. Any additional costs associated with this relocation, for services of the same nature, will be borne by the establishment originally booked. The customer may also cancel the reservation, in which case a credit note or immediate refund will be issued.


The present General Terms and Conditions of Sale, the conditions of sale of the fare booked by the Customer, and the booking confirmation express the entirety of the obligations of the parties.
No general or specific conditions communicated by the Customer may be incorporated into these General Terms and Conditions.
The documents forming the contractual commitments between the parties are, in descending order of priority, the reservation form or request (including the Conditions of Sale for the fare booked), which has been validated by the Customer, and these General Conditions.
In the event of any contradiction between the booking confirmation and these General Terms and Conditions, the provisions appearing on the booking confirmation shall be the only ones applicable to the obligation in question.


In the event of a dispute relating to these General Terms and Conditions or any other dispute with one of the Company's Establishments, the parties will endeavor to find an amicable solution. To do so, the Customer must first contact the Establishment concerned by e-mail or by post using the contact details indicated on each Site.
Information about the establishment is available in the booking confirmation e-mail, and on the establishment's page on the establishment's website.
These General Terms and Conditions of Sale are governed by French law. This applies to both substantive and formal rules.
In the absence of an amicable agreement or a response from the Establishment within two months, the Customer may refer the matter to the Consumer Mediator, whose contact details are as follows:
  • Or by completing the form provided on the AME CONSO website: www.mediationconso-ame.com ;
  • Or by post addressed to AME CONSO, 197 Boulevard Saint-Germain - 75007 PARIS.

  • On the conditions of cancellation and modification of reserved Services;
  • The identity of DOMAINES DE PROVENCE and its establishments, and their contact details;
  • Applicable legal and contractual warranties;
  • On the possibility of resorting to conventional mediation in the event of a dispute ;
