4 / Reservation

Reservations can be made on the website, by telephone, by e-mail or by post.

The reservation will be effective only if it is guaranteed by the client, either by communicating a credit card number with validity date or by payment of a deposit, and after receipt of a detailed booking confirmation.

Payment for all services will be made directly to the establishment (exceptions made for prepaid reservations at the time of booking).

The establishment reserves the right to refuse any reservation if the credit card number is incorrect or the reservation is incomplete.

Reservations, whatever their origin, will be payable in Euros only.

The institution accepts the following credit cards: Visa, Mastercard and Carte Bleue and has a secure reservation system (SSL) that protects and encrypts all sensitive data transmitted at the time of booking to prevent disclosure to a third party.

At the time of booking, a 50% deposit will be charged to the credit card except in the following cases :

  • “Non-cancellable – non-refundable” promotional offer where the entire stay will be charged at the time of booking.


The client must come to the establishment with the credit card that enabled him/her to guarantee the reservation or to make the prepayment.

The institution may also ask him/her to show proof of identity in order to prevent credit card fraud.

Payment is debited automatically during the stay, except in the case of special conditions or rates where payment is debited at the time of booking (online prepayment on some rates). This pre-payment is called a deposit.

In the case of a rate that is not prepaid online, the establishment may ask the customer, upon arrival, for a security deposit or authorization to debit the credit card, in order to guarantee payment of the sums corresponding to the services consumed on site.

There are two possible ways of paying the deposit :

  • either by cheque payable to the institution and sent directly to the institution; or
  • either by credit card or bank transfer.

In this case, the reservation becomes firm and definitive only on receipt of the deposit by the establishment, within the time limit.

Payment of the balance of the stay will be made on the spot to the establishment or automatically if a credit card has been registered online at the time of booking.

  • For any request made less than 14 days before the date of arrival, 50% of the amount of the stay will be charged (the amount of the deposit).
  • In case of no show at the date of arrival, 100% of the stay will be charged to you
  • Any stay started is entirely due.
