Modifications made to key elements of the reservation by The Property Supplier: In unforeseen or unavoidable circumstances (known in France as force majeure), The Property Supplier reserve the right to modify one or more of the services on offer. This includes both the accommodation itself and any optional additional services. The client will not be charged for any unavailable services. Should the aforementioned situation arise the client will be notified of these modifications by fax, e-mail or telephone and a letter will be sent by recorded delivery by way of confirmation. The client may then choose to: - either terminate his/her contract and be fully reimbursed - or accept the modifications or the alternative holiday proposed by The Property Supplier . Both parties will then sign an amendment detailing the modification. Should there be a reduction or increase in cost this will be deducted from or added to the outstanding balance owed by the Client. If payment has already been made in full and exceeds the price of the substitute holiday, the surplus will be refunded to the client before the date of the end of their stay.
Modifications made to key elements of the reservation by the Client: The length of stay is stated in the booking confirmation. The length of stay may be extended, at the discretion of The Property Supplier, provided there is a sufficient availability. The Property Supplier is under no obligation to offer the client the same apartment or the same rates as the original reservation. In the case of an extended stay with a revised price, the new price will be applied as of the original arrival date. In the case of an early departure which does not come under the cancellation conditions, the price will be revised to correspond with the shortened length of stay and will apply from the date of arrival. In addition to the above conditions, the client must put the desired modifications to the contract in writing and send it to The Property Supplier, with a cheque for 35 € to cover administration charges, no later than 31 days before the arrival date.
Cancellation conditions: If the client cancels a reservation the following amounts will be retained :
More than 30 days before the arrival date: the deposit
Between 30 and 21 days before the arrival date: 45% of the total cost of the holiday.
Between 20 and 8 and days before the arrival date: 60% of total cost of holiday
Between 7 and 4 days before the arrival date: 90% of total cost of holiday
3 days or less before the arrival date: full cost of holiday.
In order to cancel a booking, written notice must be given to The Property Supplier. The date of cancellation will be considered to be the date on which this written cancellation is received. In the case of a booking at Premuim rate, which is possible at certain dates in our hotels and town residences (Montpellier), bookings can be cancelled without charges up to 14 days before arrival. All amounts paid will be reimbursed. Between 14 days and arrival day the standard cancellation conditions apply. The Property Supplier reserves the right to exceptionally cancel online booking within the 24 hours of the booking being made. In this case the bankcard will not be debited.
Termination of stay: The client is not entitled to any compensation or reimbursement of any kind if they shorten or interrupt their stay, regardless of the reason (including strike action or repatriation on medical grounds, etc). In addition, any unused service will not be refunded.
Arrival and departure times: The villas, chalets, apartments and hotel rooms are available to the client from 5pm. On the day of departure they must be vacated by 10am, otherwise the client will be invoiced for an extra day in the accommodation. In the case of a late arrival, i.e. after 8pm the client must contact The Property Supplier or the site manager to agree an arrival time or an access to the accommodation after reception is closed.
Damage deposit : A damage deposit is requested on the client's arrival : 260 Euros for apartments and 750-1000 Euros for chalets and villas. The deposit will be returned within 15 days of the client's departure. This delay allows The Property Supplier to discover any damage not immediately noticeable. In any apartment, chalet or villa, if cleaning or repair work is necessary, or if a broken or damaged object needs replacing, the amount deducted from the damage deposit for expenses will be justified by means of an invoice. The client will be charged 8 Euros for any lost key. Throughout his/her stay, the client is automatically held fully responsible for any object that is damaged or broken, and for any other damage to any other contents of the property.
Contents: The apartments, chalets, villas and hotel rooms are fully equipped with cutlery, crockery and bedding (except sheets and towels, unless the client requests these at the time of booking and pays the extra charge). It is forbidden to use the beds without sheets. Due to there being many simultaneous arrivals and departures, it may be impractical for The Property Supplier to check the accommodation upon the client's arrival. In this case, a list of the contents of the accommodation will be compiled before arrival at the property and a written copy provided for the client, who should then inform the manager of the residence as soon as possible if there are any discrepancies. Upon arriving at the property after a previous client's departure, the client should indicate any problems, damage or missing items. In their own interest, each client should therefore compile an inventory upon arrival detailing any marks and stains, appliances that do not work properly and submit this in writing to the manager of the property with minimal delay.
Client obligations The accommodation will be provided to the client in a good state of repair. It is expected that the client uses the property and its contents respectfully and responsibly. The apartments, chalets, villas and rooms all conform to French safety regulations and are regularly inspected. They are equipped for holiday use. The maximum occupancy of the accommodation is indicated in its description. The accommodation must never be occupied by a greater number than that stated in the contract. In locations where amenities such as communal or private swimming pools, saunas, spa pools, gyms or games are available or other activities are proposed in collaboration with other providers, the client must, before use, judge themselves to be fit, in a good state of health and capable of participating or using the equipment. They must also take note of the instructions regarding usage, maintenance and
safety and be sure to understand and respect these rules. If these instructions are not followed The Property Supplier will not take any responsibility for damage, loss or injury to those using the equipment. Finally, The Property Supplier reserves the right to deny access to any equipment or service to anyone who refuses to conform to the rules of use or safety.
Responsibility: The Property Supplier will not be held responsible for the damage or theft of personal belongings within accommodation, including in individual safes, communal areas, car parks or any other area of the residence or hotel. Similarly, The Property Supplier will not be held responsible should injury, illness or death occur as a result of the practice of a sport or any other activity organised on or off site. The Property Supplier will not be responsible for any unforeseen circumstances that may upset or interrupt the holiday or prevent it from taking place. The client must ensure that they hold valid insurance (comprehensive and civil responsibility as well as an extension of home insurance), from a creditworthy insurance provider, proof of which they must be able to provide upon request by The Property Supplier. Unless a written agreement has previously been accorded, all minors under 16 years of age are the sole and exclusive responsibility of their parents or accompanying adults throughout the duration of the holiday. The client and any other person not employed by The Property Supplier are strictly forbidden to enter any area marked for staff access only. If the above enter these areas it is at their own risk, The Property Supplier will take no further responsibility.
Complaints: Any complaint arising during the stay must be brought immediately to the attention of the manager or head of reception. If the problem cannot be resolved onsite the client must notify The Property Supplier in writing within 15 days of the end of the stay, with details of the complaint. After this period, no complaint will be dealt with and no correspondence will be entered into.

Chalet Woodpecker, which sits alongside its sister Chalet Nightingale' is a beautifully decorated chalet, in a superb location in Alpe d'Huez. The chalet sits on Avenue de l'Eclose, which is located at the most southernmost part of the main village, just off the main route into the centre of town. The town centre is only a 5 minute walk from the busy centre of Alpe d'Huez and with the nearest ski slope right outside, keen skiers will be more than content as you step out the door and straight onto the piste. The piste outside heads down towards the older village of Huez, and whilst it might not be suited to beginners, the chalet is only a 3 minute walk from the Telecentre lift, which will whisk them straight to the foot of the nursery area and the departure point of the main lifts.

On the first floor you'll find the open plan living and dining space, next to which there are sliding doors that wrap around the corner of the building and open up onto a spacious balcony. With windows facing out of both sides of the building, you can sit back and enjoy incredible views from the table as you tuck into breakfast or dinner, or if the weather is kind to you, enjoy a cold après-ski beer on the balcony as you soak up the last of the sun's rays.
