All beekeeping experiences must be paid for at the time of booking via secure online Paypal service which enables direct transfers or credit/debit card payments. Whilst currencies are listed in GBP, guests can pay in Euros if they wish and exchange rates will be agreed at prevailing market rates. Guests can also pay elements in cash (maximum 1000€ for French nationals or 3000€ for others) if you prefer but the proportions must be agreed at the time of booking with the 13 Bees team via email.
Chambres d'Hôtes rooms must be paid for in full before or on the day of departure. We accept cash (see above terms), French cheques, Paypal transfers, bank transfers or online credit/debit card payment via Paypal. Internet access can be provided for guests to use these services if they wish.
Any dietary requirements must be notified by email at the time of booking. If guests take advantage of vacancies on the same day, we will do our best to accommodate dietary requirements but cannot guarantee compliance.Cancellation
By making your booking, our agreement is a legal contract and you agree to our terms and conditions.
We will only cancel your booking if your accommodation becomes unavailable for reasons beyond our control and we will make best endeavours to find you alternative accommodation. If this is unacceptable to you, we will refund all monies paid by you. Our liability does not extend beyond this refund.
If you need to cancel for any reason, we will be happy to issue a voucher so that you can re-book at a more convenient time. We strongly recommend that you have good travel insurance to cover you in the event of cancellation or disruption. Alternatively, if you cancel within 7 days of your arrival date we reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee of 50% of the booking value as per industry standard. If you don't show up at all, we reserve the right to charge 100% of the booking.
We reserve the right to terminate your stay immediately, without being liable for any refund or compensation, if you engage in unacceptable behaviour that causes a disturbance or nuisance to the 13 Bees team and/or other guests.
The price includes all aspects set out on the Chambres d'Hôtes and Beekeeping sections of our website, including local taxes where applicable.
In accordance with French law, 13 Bees is a completely non-smoking property and each room is fitted with smoke detectors. In the event of an alarm being set off by smokers or damage being caused by smoking, the guest(s) concerned will be financially liable for all resultant damages or fees incurred (eg: repairs to the property or if there is a charge for a fire service false alarm call).
