Personal Liability
The Villa Owner, and their suppliers, have to the best of their knowledge and capabilities provided a safe environment, and by accepting the Terms & Conditions of Let you and all members of your party are accepting that the Villa Owner, or 3rd parties, will not at any time accept liability under any circumstances for any instances that may affect any member of your group's personal well being, including personal injury, illness or death.  Nor can the Villa Owner or 3rd parties accept liability for circumstances that are due to your own actions, or to the actions of a 3rd party, or to an unusual and unforeseeable circumstance whose consequences could not have been prevented by us or our suppliers, even exercising all due care.  Furthermore, the Villa Owner or 3rd parties are unable to accept responsibility for any aspect of your holiday affected by force majeure, however such eventualities may be covered by your travel Insurance.
Please note that whilst the Villa Owner can arrange excursions and car hire locally for you, we advise you to take personal liability insurance to protect you and your party, as we cannot provide insurance for excursions or local transport that we provide.  Furthermore, should the Villa Owner or 3rd parties at your request, make arrangements for excursions, or car hire locally on your behalf the contract for the provision of the excursion, or car hire will be between you and the supplier of the excursion and not between you and the Villa Owner.  Therefore, when you purchase an excursion, or hire a car locally, your contract is with the local company and Villa Owner has no liability for anything which may go wrong with the excursion or car hire.  Always make sure the company you choose has adequate fully comprehensive insurance.

The Villa Owner or 3rd parties cannot be held liable for loss of main services such as electricity or water supplies, nor any actions taken at, or in the vicinity of the Villa by any person(s) or authority over whom we have no control. Similarly, you should be aware that there might be occasions when an advertised facility is either modified or not available.  Such situations may be dictated by local circumstances, breakdown of machinery and/or the necessity for maintenance, unsuitable weather conditions, fuel shortages, power cuts and other circumstances beyond our control.  If Villa Owner is advised of this Villa Owner or Villa Manager will endeavour to inform you in advance, but cannot be held liable in such circumstances.

Septic Tank
Where the Villa is not connected to mains drainage you will have a septic tank and the following specific care is required to ensure the proper function of the septic tank system:

Only three items are safe to flush down any of the toilets: 1) human waste; 2) toilet paper; and 3) septic system treatments (enzymes).

b) The following items must never be flushed down ay toilet, or disposed of in any drain at the Villa as they can kill the helpful bacteria in the septic tank and block the field drain lines resulting in failure of the entire septic tank system: paper towels, grease, coffee grounds, sand, pet and human hair, disposable nappies, tampons, sanitary napkins, dental floss, food, condoms, toys, bottle caps, paint, corrosive chemicals, or any item not specifically set forth in paragraph “a” above.

You acknowledge and understand the specific care that is required to keep the septic tank system at the Villa in good working order and accept responsibility for fully complying with the requirements set forth.  You must immediately report any failure of the septic tank system to the Villa Manager, who after verification, will endeavour to arrange for the septic tank to be emptied, or undergo maintenance as required.  Villa Owner will attempt to minimise any inconvenience, but are reliant on 3rd parties and delays may be beyond our control and Villa Owner cannot be held liable in such circumstances.  You acknowledge and agree that you shall be liable for all damage to the septic tank system due to the intentional or negligent acts by you, or your party.

Your Flight
We are unable to accept responsibility for any aspect of your holiday affected by your flight arrangements as the agreement is with the airline and is beyond our control. For any specific requirements relating to your flight such as pre-bookable services for meals, pre-allocated seating and any other special needs you should arrange this directly with the airline.  However, where changes in your flight affect your transfers and check in to your Villa on the scheduled day of arrival, we will endeavour to make the necessary changes on your behalf to ensure that you are transferred to your Villa.  If however, you haven't pre-booked a transfer with us, and need a transfer as a result of a car hire firm being closed out of hours, you will be subject to a local charge for the transfer, such as a taxi fare or the price of our transfer.
Holiday Insurance
The Villa Owner and 3rd parties, strongly advise you to protect yourself and the rest of your party against any event, e.g. accident, cancellation, or loss of personal belongings by taking out adequate holiday insurance.  Villa Owner cannot accept liability should you later find yourselves not to be adequately insured.

Long Term Let
For Villa rental longer than 30 days (Long Term Let), all gas, electric, wood and water bills will be your responsibility during your stay, unless otherwise agreed prior to a Long Term Let. Villa Manager will take all meter readings prior to your arrival and on your departure, when possible in your presence.  All bills must be settled with the Villa Manager before you vacate the Villa. 

Airport Transfers
Villa Owner can arrange an airport transfer on your behalf, however, your contract for this service is with the company concerned and not with the Villa Owner.  It is your responsibility to ensure any return pick-up time is suitable for your requirements.

Building Works
No building is allowed during the months of May - October by Turkish by-laws.  We cannot be held responsible for any new builds outside of these dates, or where the Town Council alter the build dates, Villa Owner will, if we are made aware of any building works outside of those dates notify you immediately.

Law and Jurisdiction
This contract is made on the Terms & Conditions of Let.  Any disputes will be governed by Turkish Law and both parties shall submit to the jurisdiction of the Turkish Courts at all times.  Where legal action is contemplated Villa Owner authority must be obtained prior to commencement of proceedings.  Villa Owner costs in respect of the above on behalf of you and your party shall not exceed the total cost of the amount paid for the Villa rental.

Client Confidentiality
Villa Owner will not disclose or share any of your personnel details with any other organisation(s), without your prior consent in writing.

Complaints Procedure
If you have a problem during your holiday, it is a condition of this contract that you must communicate any problem in the first instance to the Villa Manager whilst in the resort, who will endeavour to put things right.  If any problem is not being addressed by the Villa Manager you must inform the Villa Owner whilst still in the resort.  If you cannot resolve your problem in the resort, all complaints must be lodged by letter in writing within 28 days of your return to the UK, or other country of residence and posted to 7 Deepdale Place, Broughty Ferry, Dundee, Angus, DD5 3DD.  If you fail to follow this procedure your entitlement to compensation, if any, will be completely extinguished because you will not have taken reasonable steps to mitigate your loss and Villa Owner has not been given a full opportunity to investigate and rectify the problem.

Late Villa Rental Payments
Please ensure that all deposits and outstanding balances, reach us on or before the agreed due date, failure to do so could lead to your holiday being cancelled.  Villa Owner reserves the right
to cancel your booking if the payment is not received by the agreed due date without further notice.

Unpaid Villa Rental Charge
Notwithstanding Law and Jurisdiction clause, any claim which may arise in relation to unpaid Villa rental charge will be governed by Scots Law and you agree that any legal proceedings in relation to unpaid Villa rental charge will be dealt with exclusively by the courts of Scotland.

If any of these provisions should be determined unlawful, invalid or otherwise unenforceable by reason of law then, to the extent and within the jurisdiction which that provision is found to be unlawful, invalid or unenforceable, then that provision shall be deleted and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining provisions which shall continue to be binding and in force.

Amendments to Terms & Conditions of Let 
Changes and updates to the Terms and Conditions of Let can be made at any time without any prior notice.

Your signature on our Booking Form implies your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions of Let.  For bookings made via HomeAway or Freetobook you are automatically accepting these Terms and Conditions of Let.
