The present general conditions of sale apply to sales made between La Roseraie du Val’Ensoleillé gîte, located at La roseraie _ Lieu-dit du Bars _ 04210 Valensole, and the Client.


The rates communicated are public, in €, taxes and services included, except for the tourist tax which will be paid on site. The amount of the tourist tax is likely to vary according to the legal provisions that may be taken. The package rates (electric charging point, cleaning costs, etc.) are made up of inseparable elements and are not refundable in the event of non-use. The price of the gite(s) agreed upon at the time of booking and paid by the client is the final price. The client may not claim a change in the price of the confirmed reservation in the event of subsequent promotions offered by the establishment via its reservation service, its website or other partner sites. All reservations will be confirmed after receipt of a first deposit, and the balance due upon arrival of the client according to the following conditions:

A deposit of 30% of the total amount of the stay at the time of booking
The balance must be paid on the client’s arrival

The payment of the first deposit confirms the reservation and thus implies the acceptance of our general terms and conditions of sale and cancellation. If the balance due is not paid on the agreed date, the stay will be considered as cancelled by the client and the terms and conditions of sale will apply accordingly.

In the case of payment by bank transfer or credit card, the bank charges must be paid by the client, and added to the total amount of the stay. No payment in foreign currencies can be accepted.


Modification of the stay

All requests for changes to the dates of stay or cancellations must be notified to the reservations department in writing in advance. These requests will be subject to the cancellation policy.

Interruption of the stay and unused services

Any stay interrupted by the client or any services booked and not consumed/used due to the client, for any reason whatsoever, including medical reasons and force majeure, will not give rise to any refund.

Cancellation by the customer

In the event of a “no show” or inability to arrive on the day of arrival, the charge will be 100% of the nights concerned. In the event of a no-show, the guest has 24 hours to notify the hotel of a new arrival date. After 24 hours, the hotel reserves the right to re-sell the room.

We advise clients to take out a policy with their insurance company to cover cancellation costs.

All reservations will be subject to the following cancellation policy :

A set of rules and regulations for good conduct is available in the hotel. We thank you for taking note of them and for respecting them.

State of play

An inventory is drawn up jointly and signed by the tenant and the owner or his representative on arrival and departure. This inventory is the only reference in the event of a dispute concerning the state of the premises.

The state of cleanliness of the gîte on the tenant’s arrival must be noted in the inventory of fixtures.

In the event of abnormal use of the premises, or exceptional soiling, the amount of the cleaning costs will be invoiced to the tenant.


On the arrival of the Tenant, a deposit, the amount of which is indicated on the front of this contract, is requested by the owner. After the inventory of fixtures at the end of the rental period has been drawn up, this deposit will be returned, less the cost of repairing the premises if any damage has been found.

In case of early departure (before the time mentioned on the present contract) preventing the establishment of the inventory of fixtures on the day of the tenant’s departure, the deposit is returned by the owner within a period not exceeding one week.

Payment of charges

Water and electricity charges are included in the rental price for normal use.


Your satisfaction is our priority. If you have any complaints, it is important to mention them to the host when you arrive, or afterwards, any complaints should be made in writing within 10 days.

Any request for a specific orientation or characteristic of the accommodation is considered as a preference and does not constitute a contractual guarantee. They do not give any right to compensation.

Any dispute concerning the interpretation and execution of these conditions and which could not be settled amicably will be under the exclusive jurisdiction of the Commercial Court of Manosque and will be governed by French law.
