Frequently asked questions
What is the next step once you have selected your holiday rental in the South of France?
You can request a booking for the holiday rental of your choice by telephone, by e-mail or directly via the website.
What is the minimum let period?
Holiday apartments or holiday villas: the minimum stay is usually one week. Some holiday properties are available for shorter stays, please contact Alviazur for more detail. Arrivals are usually on a Saturday between 4pm and 6pm.
How can you check if a property is available?
You can check for holiday rental availabilities on each property description, at the bottom of the page, where there is a calendar showing available dates. Dates in green mean the holiday property is still available; if dates have a line through with grey background then the property is already booked. The calendar is updated on a daily basis.
To confirm your reservation you will need to pay a deposit when signing the rental agreement. This deposit amounts to 25% of the total booking fees for the rental of the property of your choice, for your selected dates; the total amount for the holiday rental of your choice is specified in the rental agreement.
How can we make a payment ?
We accept payments by personal cheques, credit card, bank transfers (BACS) and cash.
When do we need to pay for the final balance for the holiday rental?
The final balance is due 30 days prior to the date of arrival. For last minute reservations done less than 30 days prior to the required booking dates, the total amount of the holiday rental fees must be paid for at the time of booking.
How do we pay the security deposit?
Holiday apartments & holiday villas: a security deposit is required upon delivery of the keys to your holiday property. Credit card details are taken upon your arrival alongside the authorisation to charge the card for the specified amount.

How much is the security deposit?
The security deposit in case of property damage varies depending on the property rental. The amount is specified on the description of the holiday rental in the information section, and will be clearly stated in the holiday rental agreement.
When will the security deposit be refunded?
Holiday apartments & holiday villas: following an inspection of the holiday property on your departure, the security deposit is refunded on the day of your departure, unless damages have been caused to the holiday property. In that case, costs for any repairs are deducted from the security deposit.
