The Agent refers to Houses of Pelion., which is acting for each individual property owner, (the Owner), and which is empowered
to enter a contract on behalf of the Owner with the Client, who is the person in whose name the booking is made, and, in addition,
all those entered on the Booking Form
and on whose behalf the booking is made.
Provisional booking of accommodation should be made by telephone or email, and the signed Booking Form
, together with the appropriate deposits should be received by the Agent (or by the person delegated by the Agent for this
purpose), within four days following the date of the telephone or email booking being made. Only after written confirmation
has been posted or emailed by the Agent on the Owner's behalf will the booking of accommodation become valid.
3. TERMS OF PAYMENT:
The Booking Form
must be accompanied by a deposit of
per person for a one week holiday,
£50 per person for a two week holiday, and
£70 for holidays of more than two weeks
duration. The balance of payment must be received not less than eight weeks before the date of arrival. The Owner reserves
the right to regard the
booking as cancelled if the balance of the price remains unpaid after the due date. For bookings made less than eight weeks
prior to arrival date,
immediate payment of the total holiday cost is required. Remittances made by sterling draft or cheque on a foreign bank will
incur a charge of
£15, or total charges levied, whichever is the larger, to cover such collection charges.
The accommodation prices shown on this website are based on the rate of exchange as at 31st October 2012

cost the Client has the right to cancel the booking and we will refund in full any monies paid.
