In the event of a cancellation supported by a reason, should the premises be re-rented, the paid amount will be returned to the tenant who cannot
honour his/her contract. Stays begun and then shortened or interrupted by the tenant do not entitle the latter to any refunds.

supply, if possible, accommodation of the same category, without any additional invoicing.
