The tenancy confers upon the Guest the right to occupy the property named in the Reservation Form and described on www.antoniaspearls.co.uk (“the Property” which expression includes all of the furniture in the Property at the commencement of the holiday) for the purposes of a holiday and not for any other purpose (“the Holiday”).
These terms and conditions will apply in every case without alteration unless otherwise agreed in writing before the commencement of the Holiday.
Bookings cannot be accepted from groups of single persons under the age of twenty one nor from groups of all male or all female parties and if at the commencement of the holiday, it appears to the Agent that this condition has been broken, the Guest and his or her party may be refused access, the booking may be cancelled, any monies paid may be forfeited and unpaid monies shall remain payable.
The Holiday is for a maximum of three weeks.
Weekly holidays commence at 4pm on a Friday afternoon and finish at 10am on a Friday morning, unless otherwise agreed in writing. Holidays for less than a week commence at 4pm on the day of arrival and finish at 10am on the day of departure, unless otherwise agreed in writing.

To make a reservation, the Agent will need by email a completed reservation form, stating the week(s) to be reserved at the published price, with name, address, landline and the mobile to be used on holiday to email@example.com.
