1. Services offered by the FAIR PLACE platform
1.1 The FAIR PLACE platform is an online marketplace that allows registered users (the "Owners") to publish an advertisement about the availability for seasonal rental of a property (“the Villa”) located in metropolitan France.
The FAIR PLACE platform also allows property owners and travellers in search of holiday accommodation to enter into contact with one another. This platform allows owners and travellers to communicate directly with each other to conclude a seasonal rental contract.
The FAIR PLACE platform does not have the purpose of presenting property for sale or for long term rental whether for furnished or unfurnished premises.
1.2 FAIR PLACE also offers a service to assist with drafting the advertisements.
This service is accessible in the OWNER tab after requesting registration with the FAIR PLACE platform.
To request this service, a certain amount of information must be provided (last name, first name, email address).
1.3 FAIR PLACE has a concierge service, a complementary activity with the constant objective of offering maximum satisfaction to Owners and Travellers booking a property from among the platform’s collection.
This concierge service is independent from the activity of allowing Owner and Travellers to contact each other and is subject to an independent contract.
The introductory activities and the concierge activities are independent of each other.
When a Traveller books a property or an Owner publishes an advertisement on the FAIR PLACE platform, the concierge service is not included.
The FAIR PLACE concierge service must be requested by interested parties by telephone + 33 (0)6 66 05 50 44 or by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
1.4 FAIR PLACE does not own and does not create advertisements (except the service assisting with the drafting of the advertisements), nor does it sell, sell on, provide, control or manage any properties.
The Owners are solely responsible for their ads.
When Owners make or accept a booking, they enter into a seasonal rental contract with the Traveller directly. FAIR PLACE is not and will not become party to any contract between Owners and Travellers. FAIR PLACE is not involved in the contractual relationship established between Owners and Travellers.
FAIR PLACE is not a real estate broker, nor an insurer, property manager or real estate agent.
FAIR PLACE only acts in introducing parties to each other.
1.5 FAIR PLACE cannot be held responsible for the behaviour of Owner(s) or Traveller(s).
You should always exercise caution when you decide to stay in a Villa, accept a booking request, or have any other exchange or interaction with any other person (Traveller or Owner) online or in person.
Some ads may have images with the FAIR PLACE logo. This signifies that the photos in the advertisement genuinely correspond, at the time the photo was taken, to the seasonal rental proposed by the owner, FAIR PLACE having previously visited the said property.
This does not constitute endorsement by FAIR PLACE of any Owner or of any Advertisement.
Should the property have changed since the date on which the photo was taken, FAIR PLACE cannot be blamed for this.
The Owner remains solely responsible for his/her advertisement and the photos published.
1.6 If you choose to use the FAIR PLACE platform as an Owner, your position with respect to FAIR PLACE is limited to that of an independent third party contractor, and not an employee, agent, a member of a joint venture or even an associate of FAIR PLACE for any reason whatsoever.
There is no relationship of subordination between FAIR PLACE and the Owners.
You are acting exclusively on your own behalf and for your sole benefit and not for the account of or for the benefit of FAIR PLACE.
1.7 To help Owners or Travellers who speak another language, advertisements and other forms of Member Content may be translated, fully or partially, into other languages. FAIR PLACE cannot guarantee the accuracy or the quality of these translations, and it is up to the Owners to check the accuracy of these translations.
As the translation is made to offer the Owner better visibility on the platform, FAIR PLACE will not have to seek the permission of the Owner to translate the advertisement.
In case of refusal of a translation of your advertisement, you must inform FAIR PLACE by e-mail or by registered letter addressed to the headquarters.
2.1 You must be at least 18 years old (or the legal age required in your country of residence) and have the legal capacity to enter into a contract to access the FAIR PLACE platform, to use or create an Owner account or to ask to rent a Villa in the FAIR PLACE collection.

In addition, you guarantee that all the information you provide is true and accurate.
2.2 FAIR PLACE disclaims all liability with regard to the identity of Owners or Travellers.

FAIR PLACE reserves the right to prosecute any person who would publish an advertisement in disregard of the rule specified above.

5. Owner Liability
It is exclusively the responsibility of Owners to comply with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to their advertisements and to their activity of making a seasonal rental property available.
For example, some cities have adopted laws which prohibit hosting paying travellers for short periods of time.
Owners must personally check with the competent authorities of their city, town (or other) whether is necessary to make certain statements, to obtain an authorisation or all other mandatory formalities for seasonal rental of his or her property.
It is reminded that preparing, distributing or selling food and alcohol is strictly regulated by Law.
It is imperative that any Owner intending to carry out such activities, and to be in perfect compliance with the Law and regulations, must make contact with the competent authorities to ask for the necessary permissions, or at the very least take legal counsel to be aware of his or her rights and obligations.
FAIR PLACE cannot be held responsible in the event of failure on the part of an Owner to fulfil his or her legal obligations.
6. Tax and social obligations of Owners
FAIR PLACE reminds each Owner of the tax and social contribution obligations in relation to seasonal rental of property.
You will also find all the necessary information in the section: Tax and social contribution obligations of owners.
At the beginning of the calendar year, FAIR PLACE will send an email to each of the registered Owners with a summary statement of transactions related to the seasonal rental performed through the intermediary of the FAIR PLACE platform.
This document will show the total amount of sums collected by the Owner as part of transactions carried out on the FAIR PLACE platform, excluding commissions collected, to allow each Owner to proceed with his or her social contributions and income tax returns.
The certificate will be sent by email to the address given by the Owner.
It is mandatory for each owner to enter a valid address.
In the case of an invalid email address or change of address without having explicitly informed FAIR PLACE, the latter will send the said certificate by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt at the expense of the Owner.
Each OWNER may seek a paper copy of this certificate by sending a request by email to the head office of the company FAIR PLACE.
FAIR PLACE must prove to the tax administration that it has distributed this information. To this effect, as an Owner you authorise FAIR PLACE to submit to the tax administration any document demonstrating that it has duly informed you of the income obtained over the year from the seasonal rentals operated through the intermediary of the FAIR PLACE platform.
For any information concerning tax obligations and social contributions related to the seasonal rental of your property, FAIR PLACE invites you to take knowledge of the internet pages whose links are given below:
FAIR PLACE also recommends that you take legal advice to ensure that you follow all local and national regulations established regarding the seasonal rental of a real estate property.
8. Special conditions for Owners
8.1 Conditions applicable to advertisements
When you create an advertisement on the FAIR PLACE platform, you must provide accurate and complete information. FAIR PLACE expects its Owners to give a description of the property that is faithful to the reality. The dates of availability must be regularly updated by the Owner so that travellers can take knowledge of the availability without difficulty.
FAIR PLACE reserves the right to ask an Owner to clarify a listing.
In the case of failure on the part of the Owner to do so, despite the recommendations of FAIR PLACE, FAIR PLACE reserves the right to delete or suspend the published advertisement or the account of the Owner.
If FAIR PLACE has any doubt about the compliance of an advertisement with the reality of the property on offer, it may freely decide not to publish the offer. The Owner will be informed of the reasons for this non-publication and will comply with the recommendations of FAIR PLACE to see the advertisement published. No appeal may be made on this subject against FAIR PLACE that remains the sole entity with power to decide what may or may not be published on the site.
In your capacity as Owner, you agree to keep the information in your advertisement up to date.
Owners are solely responsible for setting the price (applicable taxes included) for their listing ("Price displayed"). Once a Traveller has booked, no higher price than that contained in the booking request can be requested.
Rental or cancellation terms set out in the advertisement must not be contrary to these GCU, and must be consistent with normal usage and regulations in force.
In your capacity as Owner, when you accept or pre-approve a Traveller’s booking request, you enter into a legally binding agreement with the Traveller in the form of a seasonal rental contract.
You are then required to provide the service or services mentioned in your advertisement on the requested booking date.
You also agree to comply with the national legislation in matters of tax returns and social contributions.
FAIR PLACE recommends that each Owner take out suitable insurance when renting out their property on a seasonal basis.
FAIR PLACE invites all its Member Owners to take knowledge of their insurance policy and invites them to take legal advice to have perfect knowledge of the guarantees and exclusions contained in their insurance policy and whether the insurance policy taken out corresponds to the activity being exercised.
8.2 Content of the Advertisements
You can only list one Accommodation offer per advertisement.
If you choose to request a security deposit for your Accommodation, you must mention this in your advertisement (the "Security deposit"). Owners are prohibited from requesting a security deposit AFTER a booking has been confirmed outside the FAIR PLACE platform.
FAIR PLACE is not responsible for the administration or the acceptance of any claims of owners concerning security deposits.
When offering a property for rent you must ensure that the proposed lease does not contravene any agreement that you have made with third parties, condominium rules, or other agreement. In your capacity as Owner Member of the FAIR PLACE platform, you guarantee that your advertisement and behaviour are consistent with all applicable laws (such as the laws of urban planning), tax obligations and other rules and regulations (including obtaining all required permits, licenses and registrations).
If your property is part of a condominium, FAIR PLACE invites you to check whether seasonal rental is an authorised activity within your co-ownership regulations.
FAIR PLACE also invites you to take legal advice to ensure that a seasonal rental activity can be carried out under your care.
The presence of a FAIR PLACE insignia on an advertisement indicates that the Owner of the Villa has sought the concierge services of FAIR PLACE.
Information about the concierge service offered by FAIR PLACE is available by sending a request by email to FAIR PLACE: email@example.com
Availing of the concierge service does not offer better visibility of the Villas in the FAIR PLACE collection.
9. Special conditions for Travellers
9.1 Conditions applicable to all bookings
Subject to fulfilling all the conditions defined by the Owner, you can book a property proposed on the FAIR PLACE platform following the appropriate booking procedure, after selecting your chosen Villa in the FAIR PLACE collection and after providing the information requested.
A summary statement of the various fees and the price is presented during the booking procedure (service charges, security deposit, VAT…).
No other additional costs for the same service may be solicited after acceptance of the booking by the Owner.
When you request to book a Villa, you agree to proceed with the payment of the amounts indicated in the advertisement.
The payment conditions are mentioned below.
Upon receipt of a booking confirmation from FAIR PLACE or from the Owner’s account, a legally binding agreement (a seasonal rental contract) is drawn up subject to the application of the terms and conditions of cancellation specified in the advertisement or the legally acceptable terms and conditions of cancellation (force majeure…).
Payment of the booking is operated through the intermediary of the platform STRIPE.
By proceeding to payment you agree to the terms and conditions implemented by STRIPE that can be accessed using the following link.
In your capacity as a Traveller proceeding to the booking of a Villa, you commit to the fact that the other travellers with whom you will share the Villa comply with all the conditions mentioned herein and in the advertisement of the Villa being booked.
If you make a reservation for an additional traveller who is a minor, you state and guarantee that you are legally authorised to act on behalf of said minor.
9.2 Booking accommodation
A booking of a property confirmed by an Owner constitutes limited authorisation granted to the Traveller by the owner to enter, to occupy and to make use of his or her property for the duration of the planned stay.
In your capacity as Traveller, you agree to leave the property at the latest on the date and at the time limit of occupation that the Owner specified in the advertisement or at another time fixed by mutual agreement between you and the Owner.
If you remain beyond the time limit of occupation without the agreement of the latter, you are no longer authorised to occupy the property and will be considered as occupying the property without any right or entitlement.
In such a circumstance, the Owner or his or her representative is entitled to make you leave the property by any means consistent with applicable law.
FAIR PLACE also reserves the right to undertake legal action against you to seek damages and compensation.
If you remain in the property without right or entitlement, you agree to pay, at the request of the Owner or of FAIR PLACE an occupation fee equal to twice the price displayed per night originally paid for each twenty-four hour period (full or partial) of overrun.
In addition, should you remain without right or entitlement in a Villa you agree to settle all of the applicable charges and taxes.
Legal costs and related costs necessitated by your eviction will also be borne by the Traveller who has lost the right or entitlement to remain.
All of these costs and in the first place the fees for remaining in place without any right or entitlement may be deducted from the security deposit upon request from the Owner.
10. Service fees
FAIR PLACE invoices service fees to Owners for each booking made through the platform.
The amount of the service fees is 6 per cent, all taxes included, of the total amount of the booking, cleaning costs and other potential miscellaneous costs included.
The service fees are included in the total amount of the rental and presented to the Traveller at the time of booking.
At the time the Traveller makes the payment through the STRIPE site, the service fees are collected and paid directly to FAIR PLACE.
The rest of the payment is paid in full to the Owner.
11. Damage caused to the Accommodation, disputes between Users
As a Traveller, you are obligated to return the rented Villa (including all personal effects or other property contained therein) in the condition in which you found it on your arrival. You are responsible for your own actions and omissions, and those of any person that you invite into the Villa or animals that you are in your care.
If an Owner demonstrates that a traveller has caused damage to the Villa or to objects and movable property that furnish it, the Owner may seek reimbursement of the costs incurred for the purposes of rehabilitation.
If an Owner complains to FAIR PLACE about damage to his or her property and/or its accessories, the allegedly responsible traveller will be informed by the FAIR PLACE platform and will be able to provide any useful information for responding to the complaint from the Owner in writing.
Travellers and Owners must make every effort to resolve such difficulties amicably.
In case of refusal by a Traveller to pay the rehabilitation costs, the Owner may seek the payment of the said costs by legal means, as well as the reimbursement of legal costs incurred.
If it is demonstrated that the Traveller is responsible for the damage caused, and at the Owner’s request, FAIR PLACE may authorise STRIPE to collect the sums necessary for the repairs.
In the event of significant damage observed further to a Traveller’s stay, FAIR PLACE invites the Owner to have the damage assessed by a bailiff (at the Owner’s expense) or at least to take photographs of the alleged damage.
No delegation is granted to FAIR PLACE to legally pursue at its own expense any travellers who may have caused damage to a Villa, to its furnishings or any of the Villa’s accessories.
The Owner is the only one to have an interest in and the capacity to prosecute for the payment of the sums requested taking into account the damage observed.
Nevertheless, FAIR PLACE reserves the right to undertake legal proceedings against a Traveller to demand damages and compensation for breach of image.
As a European Union resident, you can access the European Commission online platform for resolving consumer disputes at the following link:
If the responsibility of the Traveller is established regarding damage, FAIR PLACE will be authorised to refuse any future booking requests made by this Traveller.
12. Booking Changes, Cancellations and Refunds
Owners and Travellers are responsible for any changes to bookings they have made on the FAIR PLACE platform.
When requesting to change a booking, the Owner and/or Traveller agree to pay any additional charges and/or taxes associated with the changes.
Travellers can cancel a confirmed booking at any time, subject to the terms and conditions of cancellation in the advertisement.
STRIPE will reimburse the Traveller in accordance with the conditions of cancellation. Except in cases of force majeure (defined below), all amounts due to the owner under the cancellation conditions applicable will be paid by STRIPE in accordance with the conditions defined on the FAIR PLACE platform.
Cases of force majeure accepted by the FAIR PLACE platform that allow a booking to be cancelled without charge are those that are lawfully acceptable.
In case of cancellation of a trip due to force majeure, with request for reimbursement, the Traveller or the Owner will necessarily have to address the claim to the headquarters of the company FAIR PLACE by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt no later than (date of sending) 14 days after the planned date of arrival. FAIR PLACE reserves the right to request the Traveller or Owner (depending on the case) to provide all proofs of a case of force majeure invoked in support of this request for reimbursement.
If an Owner cancels a confirmed booking, the Traveller will be reimbursed in full by the owner and through the intermediary of the STRIPE platform for the total fees paid for this booking.
FAIR PLACE may decide, at its sole discretion and to protect the legitimate interests of both parties, to cancel a confirmed booking and to proceed to the appropriate refunds and payments.
FAIR PLACE will not have to justify this cancellation and no appeal may be brought against FAIR PLACE in such a circumstance.
13. Ratings and Reviews
After enjoying a stay in the Villa booked, the Traveller can rate the quality of the Villa and comment on the stay.
These comments and ratings will be visible to the public.
These comments and ratings reflect the opinion of the Traveller and not that of FAIR PLACE
The Traveller commits to leaving a fair and honest review, consistent with the reality and is forbidden from any offensive, discriminatory, libellous or defamatory remarks.
The Ratings and Reviews may be unsubstantiated or deceptive. FAIR PLACE cannot be held responsible for any comments published by travellers as a review.
Reviews are filed chronologically.
There is no consideration paid in exchange for leaving a review or commenting on a Villa.
It is strictly forbidden to the Owner to offer compensation in exchange for a positive review of his or her Villa or a negative review of another Villa.
The reviews will be kept for a reasonable period of time and may be deleted by FAIR PLACE, without justification, after a period of 6 months.
A random check is operated by FAIR PLACE to ensure that the comments and opinions left by Travellers are not of a defamatory nature, misleading, racist, discriminatory or morally prejudicial (non-exhaustive list).
A review or a comment left by a Traveller who has not actually rented the Villa seasonally can be deleted out of fear that it does not reflect reality.
FAIR PLACE cannot modify an opinion.
FAIR PLACE reserves the right to delete any comment that it considers as not reflecting reality or that is abusive, discriminatory or defamatory.
The payment of the services offered by FAIR PLACE will only be made in euros.
For use of the site FAIR PLACE outside the euro zone, FAIR PLACE may, at its sole discretion, round the figure of amounts payable by Travellers or Owners up or down.
Travellers are responsible for paying any local taxes (tourist tax, accommodation tax, or other similar taxes required locally or nationally).
It is the Owner’s responsibility to determine the amount of the various taxes that can be sought by national or local regulations and to proceed to the required payments.
If the Owner is subject to VAT, the price must be given inclusive of VAT and all required tax returns and payments must be made to the tax administrations.
This tourism or accommodation tax is collected in principle by the Owner and by FAIR PLACE as an exception.
The tax regulations may impose that we collect tax data and collect some taxes.
To do this, the Owner will provide FAIR PLACE with all the documents which are necessary and already authorises FAIR PLACE to withhold at the source the amount of taxes to be repaid to the tax administration.
In case of refusal of the Owner and by legal obligation FAIR PLACE can be led to block the payments of the price of rentals of the Villa(s) to proceed to the payment of the fees requested by the tax administration until such time as the dispute is resolved.
In case of difficulty and costs incurred by FAIR PLACE to proceed with the returns not made by the owner, the latter reserves the right to request the payment of additional fees that it has incurred to proceed to the tax returns in the place of the Owner.
