They define the rights and obligations of the Parties in the context of the remote reservation of services offered by the Hotel on its Site. They govern all the steps required to make a reservation and the monitoring of the reservation between the contracting parties, as well as its maintenance and validity.

The Customer is required to familiarise himself/herself with these terms and conditions before making any reservation; the choice and purchase of a service are the sole responsibility of the Customer.

The services listed on the site are offered to be provided to the Customer by the Hotel to the exclusion of any other place, following an effective reservation by the Customer.

Article 3. Customer capacity and acceptance

All Customers acknowledge that they have the capacity to enter into a contract under the conditions described in these General Terms and Conditions of Sale, i.e. that they are of legal age and are not under guardianship or trusteeship. However, the Hotel Management reserves the right to ask the Customer, upon arrival, for proof of identity, including in particular the Customer's date of birth. Upon presentation of his/her identity document, the Customer undertakes to complete the individual police form in the countries concerned, in accordance with the provisions of Articles R814-1 et seq. of the Code de l'Entrée et du Séjour des Etrangers et du Droit d'Asile (French Code on the Entry and Residence of Foreigners and the Right of Asylum).

The Customer acknowledges that these conditions form an integral part of the Establishment Contract.

The Customer accepts that the General Terms and Conditions of Sale, the contractual documents informing him/her of the specific services and the prices of each of the services, as well as the order forms and the terms and conditions thereof, shall be presented to him/her online on the Site for the purpose of concluding the Premises Agreement.

The Customer declares that he/she has obtained all the necessary information from the Hotel on the Site.

The Customer acknowledges that he/she has read and accepted these General Terms and Conditions of Sale, as well as all the elements of the proposal, before placing his/her order and that he/she has accepted all the terms thereof.

Any validation of an online booking from the Site by the Customer requires consultation and acceptance of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale.

The Customer expressly accepts that entering the required bank details, accepting these General Terms and Conditions of Sale and validating the booking request constitute an electronic signature within the meaning of article 1367 of the French Civil Code, which has the same value between the Parties as a handwritten signature.

Article 4. Services

The essential characteristics of the accommodation offered and the associated services are described on the Website; the information sheets for each category of rooms offered may be consulted without reservation:
- In the corresponding section of the Site,
- During the booking process, under the room availability calendar
- And when choosing a room.

The photographs of the rooms are non-contractual insofar as the elements of presentation or interior decoration, as well as the dimensions of the rooms, differ from one room to another. The Hotel cannot be held responsible for this.

Article 5. Booking

- Online booking process:
On the website, the Customer selects the services he/she wishes to book, choosing the planned dates of his/her stay, the type of room and the rate, as well as any additional services. After checking and validating the details and total price of the booking, the Customer enters their personal details and the information required for payment or prepayment (credit card details). To confirm the booking, the Customer must validate these General Terms and Conditions of Sale. The Customer undertakes to complete the information requested on the booking request and attests to the truthfulness and accuracy of the information provided.

- Formation of the online contract:
For reservations made exclusively via the Internet, a reservation is recorded on the Hotel's website when the Customer accepts these General Terms and Conditions of Sale by ticking the box provided for this purpose and validates his/her reservation. The Customer may check the details of his/her reservation and its total price and correct any errors before confirming his/her acceptance (article 1127-2 of the French Civil Code). This confirmation implies acceptance of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale in their entirety and constitutes proof of the sales contract. Any reservation made on the Site constitutes the formation of a distance contract between the Customer and the Service Provider. The Customer is therefore required to check the accuracy of the reservation and to immediately report any error to the Hotel. The sale of the Service shall not be deemed final until the Provider has sent the Customer confirmation of acceptance of the reservation by e-mail and the Customer has received payment in full. The Hotel reserves the right to refuse any reservation from a Customer with whom there is a dispute relating to the payment of a previous invoice.

- Other booking methods:
Customers can also book by contacting the reservations department directly using the telephone number listed on the website +33 (0)4 87 25 85 82 or the email address reservation@suites-potiniere.com.

- Right of withdrawal / cancellation by the customer :
In accordance with article L.221-28 of the French Consumer Code, the Customer is reminded that he/she does not have the right of withdrawal provided for in article L.221-18 of the French Consumer Code, if the services are provided on a specific date or at a specific time. Without prejudice to the above provisions, the contractual conditions may, where applicable, provide for a right of withdrawal, depending on the content of the booking validated by the Customer, and as indicated for each tariff, when the booking is made under the "Flexible Fares" label. In this case, the Customer will have been informed of the relevant cancellation conditions, which will also be indicated at the various stages leading to payment. If the specific conditions of the tariff so permit, either only for reservations made under the "Flexible/Flexible Tariffs" heading, or under another heading expressly mentioning the benefit of this right of cancellation, the Customer's right of cancellation must be exercised within a specific period of time. Late notification of cancellation will result in the application of late cancellation charges equal to the first night's accommodation, plus any Extras included in the Customer's reservation, according to the applicable rate, including all taxes, in the reservation validated by the Customer. Cancellation by the Customer may be made by contacting the reservations department at the following address: reservation@suites-potiniere.com or on Tel. +33 (0)4 87 25 85 82.

Article 6. Rates and prices

The services offered by the Provider are provided at the rates in force on the Hotel's Website at the time the reservation is recorded by the Provider. Prices are expressed in Euros, exclusive of tax and inclusive of VAT. Prices relating to the reservation of services are indicated before and during the reservation process. Prices are valid in real time. Similarly, for other methods of booking by telephone or e-mail, the prices are valid at the time of the Customer's booking request. Rates do not include tourist tax, which may be paid directly to the Hotel. The Customer undertakes to pay this tax and any other taxes that may be introduced, without any dispute, to the Hotel. Prices are subject to value added tax (VAT) and are displayed as an amount including the VAT in force at the time of confirmation of the reservation, in euros or in the currency chosen by the Customer. The prices displayed are valid only for the period indicated on the Site. All bookings are payable in euros, as indicated during the booking process. If payment is made in any other currency, any exchange charges will be borne by the Customer. Unless otherwise stated, additional services, such as breakfast and other Services and Extras that may be selected, are not included in the price. However, the price of these additional services validated in the Customer's booking is payable during the online or offline booking process. These rates are also subject to VAT at the rate in force at the time of booking, where applicable, depending on the regulations applicable to these categories of products or services at a rate different from that applicable to room bookings. If a rate requires payment to be made at the Hotel at the time of the Customer's arrival or departure, and if the Customer's currency is not the same as that of the country in which the Hotel is located, the rate charged by the Hotel may differ from the rate communicated at the time of reservation, taking into account possible changes in exchange rates between the date of reservation and the dates of stay at the Hotel. The prices issued are determined by a practice of fine-tuning prices. Prices may therefore depend on a number of parameters, including (but not limited to): the date of booking, the date of stay, the time between the two dates, etc.

Article 7. Payment

The Customer provides his/her bank details as a guarantee for the booking, except in the case of special conditions or tariffs requiring online payment, as stipulated during the booking process. Entry of the means of payment is secured by SSL encryption. The following information will be requested from the Customer in order to finalise their reservations: card number, validity date and visual cryptogram in the case of online payment via the dedicated payment platform. The same applies to the communication of bank details required for bookings made by telephone or e-mail, in accordance with the formal conditions required, which imply either payment at the time of booking, or the requirement of a deposit by means of a bank card imprint depending on the price of the booking. Payment is debited by the Hotel during the stay, except in the case of special conditions or rates, where payment is debited at the time of booking. The bank details used to guarantee the reservation are stored on the secure servers of the reservation software used by the Hotel, and are destroyed once the Customer has confirmed that payment has been made in full and that there are no objections to the service provided.

Article 8. Pre-contractual information

The Customer acknowledges having been informed of these General Terms and Conditions of Sale, prior to making a reservation and concluding the contract, in a legible and comprehensible manner, and of all the information listed in article L.221-5 of the French Consumer Code, and in particular the following information:

- In the absence of immediate performance of the contract, the date or deadline by which the Hotel undertakes to provide the reserved Services;

Any item stolen from the room during the stay will be charged at the current rate, it being specified that these rates are available at the Hotel reception desk. The Customer accepts and undertakes to use the room in a responsible manner. Any behaviour that is contrary to good morals and public order will lead the Hotel to ask the Customer to leave the establishment without any compensation or refund if payment has already been made. If no payment has yet been made, the Customer must pay the price of his/her reservation before leaving the establishment, regardless of any compensation he/she may be required to pay to the Hotel. In the event of damage to the room, common areas or decorative items, the Hotel reserves the right to invoice the Customer at the rate for damage caused and items stolen, and the corresponding compensation may be charged to the credit card used.

- No smoking
All rooms are non-smoking. The Customer will be held responsible for any direct and/or indirect consequential damage resulting from smoking in the Hotel. They will therefore be liable for the full cost of cleaning and restoring the damaged item or area to its original state. A penalty of 150 euros may be debited from the Customer's bank card. An additional penalty may be charged to the Customer in the event of damage suffered by the Hotel as a result of the Customer's violation of the smoking ban.

- Pets
Pets, provided they are kept on a lead or in a cage in the hotel's public areas, may be accepted in accordance with the hotel's policy, subject to payment of a supplement. For reasons of hygiene, pets are not allowed in the dining rooms. For regulatory reasons, we accept a maximum of 2 pets weighing less than 10 kg or one pet weighing more than 10 kg per room.

- Wifi
WIFI access enabling customers to connect to the Internet is offered to the Customer, who undertakes not to use it in contravention of the law, for the purposes of reproducing, representing, making available or communicating to the public works or objects protected by copyright or related rights, without the authorisation of the rights holders. If the Customer does not comply with the aforementioned obligations, he or she risks being accused of counterfeiting (article L.335-3 of the French Intellectual Property Code), punishable by a fine of 300,000 euros and three years' imprisonment. The Customer is also required to comply with the security policy of the Hotel's Internet service provider, including the rules for using the security measures implemented to prevent the illicit use of IT resources, and to refrain from any action that undermines the effectiveness of these measures.

- Responsibility of the Hotel
The Customer is entirely responsible for any personal belongings left in the Hotel room, particularly outside the safe, or in the public areas of the Hotel. The Hotel may not be held responsible for the loss, theft, deterioration or damage caused to said belongings.

The Services provided via the Hotel's Internet site comply with the regulations in force in France.

- Relocation
In the event of an exceptional event, force majeure or the impossibility of making the reserved room available to the Customer, the Hotel reserves the right to accommodate the Customer in whole or in part in a hotel of an equivalent category, for services of the same nature, and subject to the Customer's prior agreement.

- Force majeure
The Parties shall not be held liable if the non-performance or delay in the performance of any of their obligations, as described herein, is due to a case of force majeure within the meaning of Article 1218 of the French Civil Code.
