The general contract terms hereunder, attachment 1, are integral and fundamental part of the rental contract. These conditions rule the terms and conditions of this contract and refer to the property chosen by the customer among all those available. Rental contracts will be signed upon delivery of the keys. The general conditions are common, but can vary in text and content according to the duration of the rental period. Please note that the residence accommodation contract is an atypical contract, a synallagmatic contract with mixed content, and finds its legal legitimacy in the provisions of the second paragraph of Article 1322 of the Civil Code (and subsequent amendments).
2.1. Choice of the Property: Availability and prices of the chosen property can be requested by sending the appropriate form via e-mail (hereinafter the “Booking request”) available on the website in the “Apartments” section (“Get the best offer “).
2.2. Booking procedure: Upon acceptance of the offer, a booking form will follow (hereinafter the “Booking confirmation”). The form will include the contract proposal, specifying the location, the rental period, the rent amount, the expenses, the deposit amount, any additional costs (Article 3.1), and the number of people.
For acceptance, the customer must fill in the form with the missing data, sign and send this confirmation to the company as soon as possible.
