RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE CLIENT

In the event that a guest leaves his keys inside the apartment, he will be liable to pay €40 for the retrieval operation. The Client must undertake to return the keys to the property at time of check-out, and guarantee that he will not have them copied, or pass them on to a third party. In the event that the keys are lost, broken or damaged, the Client will have to pay a sum equivalent to €70, which will include the cost of replacing the lock.
