However, we are happy to assist you, where needed.
- As a booking finding service provider, we accept no responsibility for the provision of the accommodation or other services by the relevant principal with whom you have a contract. All accommodation or services that we provide or that are sold through us is not an offer by us to sell any accommodation or service, but an invitation to you to make an offer to the relevant principals. We are free to accept that offer on behalf of those principals or to reject it.

Why do some Properties have Property numbers and not a name (e.g. Properties have given numbers)?
For some Properties, for confidentiality and easy identification reference reasons, to keep the property’s address private we have given the Property a property number. We try to give a property reference number and are happy to give more insight into the property. Once we have confirmed your booking (Once you agree to pay a Deposit or Full payment directly to the Owner/Operator, as per the terms of the owner/operator), we will send you the property name and address in the booking form. The person who makes the booking accepts these conditions on behalf of all members of the party and is responsible for all payments due from the party. Booking services with the company are currently only available to persons who are at least 18 years old. By submitting a Booking Form you warrant and confirm to us that you have read these Terms & Conditions and agree to comply with them.
Why don’t you give out property addresses?
Most properties are privately owned homes and not all owners would like us to reveal detailed information about their property for various reasons, so we do not publicise the exact address details of some properties. What we do show is the nearest town or region so that you can start making plans about travel arrangements and chasing out amazing things to do close by. Once a booking is confirmed by the Owners/Operator we will send you the full street address. But it is probably best to wait until then before committing to any flight or travel arrangements.
When you book directly with any operator you will pay the exact same rate as you would when booking with us. All operators and agents list the same rental prices and we do not charge any additional fees for assisting in finding you the perfect property for your luxury holiday, but we may throw in some surprises at times.
All prices quoted on our website are calculated using dynamic rates of exchange. Many services are typically paid in the currency of your holiday destination and pricing will fluctuate accordingly. Website guide prices can go up or down. Before you make a booking, we will give you the up-to-date price of your chosen holiday. Once you have accepted this price and a booking has been made, the price is fully guaranteed and will not be subject to any surcharges.
Please note that the website price for a number of properties are quoted in Euros and Swiss Francs in the currency of your holiday destination. If a Payment is collected in any other currency such as GBP (British sterling pounds) then each time a payment is requested it will be calculated using the current rate of exchange (Days Exchange rates). So, the Deposit exchange rate to the GBP may not be the same when settling the balance if it is a 50% Deposit (e.g. where a 50% is required the balance 50% amount will vary upwards or downwards in line with exchange rate fluctuations between the date of booking and the balance due date).
We reserve the right to alter any of the advertised prices for the accommodation or other services. You will be advised of the current price of the accommodation or other services that you wish to book before your contract is confirmed.
The price of the booking will be the price shown on each property page on the website. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price is correct but please check back to our website regularly for up-to-date prices. The price of the booking will be subject to the final confirmation via an email sent to your email address.

VAT & Tourist Tax
Does the price include VAT?

Many of our destinations charge a “tourist tax” which applies to all holidaymakers and we try to advertise this wherever possible and to the best of our knowledge. However, these charges depend entirely on the local authorities in that country and therefore may be introduced without our prior knowledge and are subject to changes beyond our control.

If you think an invoice is wrong please contact the owner/operator or us (if payments are collected by us) immediately. Once the payment has been made, You should receive an acknowledgment by email. This is not a confirmation of your booking, it is just an acknowledgement that we have received your request and have passed it on to the relevant principals. Your booking is confirmed and a contract between you and the relevant principals will exist when either the principal sends you a booking confirmation or we send you a booking confirmation on their behalf. Please check your confirmation carefully and report any incorrect or incomplete information to us immediately. Please ensure that names are exactly as stated in the relevant passport.

While you are looking to spend a substantial amount of money, we understand you would seek to know if we belong to any tourism bodies. However, it is important to note that Paragon Luxury villas act as a Property listing directory and intermediary service provider to all the Villas & chalets on our website(s). When booking a villa/chalet with Paragon Luxury villas you will then enter into a contractual agreement with the chalet owner or operator, also known as the principal, not Paragon Luxury villas Ltd. For all bookings, your contract will be with the provider of the arrangements. The terms and conditions of the provider of your confirmed arrangements will apply to your booking. Any applicable Copies of these conditions will be given to you at the time of confirmation of the booking and you will be asked to read and sign the outlined contract.
Where demanded we will be pleased to provide any information and details on operator travel insurance for any property you may be interested in booking. Most of our luxury villas & ski chalet operators do have one of the following bonds, meaning they will automatically take responsibility for your whole holiday, giving you 100% financial security.
ABTA’s scheme can provide protection for non-flight-based holidays, linked travel arrangements and monies paid to travel agents. ABTA ensures that all of its Members properly protect their package holidays, as required by law. Packages including a flight are covered by ATOL.
For more information: Visit the official ABTA Site.
Every company admitted to AITO is financially assessed and bound by AITO’s own code of business practice which demands clear and accurate descriptions of holidays and the use of customer questionnaires for monitoring standards.

ATOL bonding relates exclusively to package holidays (accommodation with flights, car hire etc). We offer ‘accommodation only’ so an ATOL bond requirement does not apply.
Please note that these complementary services or additional services are provided as part of the chalet or apartment accommodation and does not constitute a separate travel or tourist service in its own right. As such, your booking does not create a “package” as defined in the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018 (“PTRs”).

We will contact you closer to the start of your accommodation booking to see if you wish to book these additional services. Please note that this will be a new, separate booking and will not form part of your accommodation booking (and as such does not create a “package” or “linked travel arrangement” as defined in the PTRs).
As your Booking is for accommodation only (and not for any other travel services) you will NOT benefit from the rights applying to packages under the Package Travel and Linked Travel Arrangements Regulations 2018 or under the applicable domestic rules. Therefore, we will not be responsible for the proper performance of any additional travel services that you may book and, in case of any issues with such travel services, please contact the relevant service provider.
You may decide to make one or more bookings with us at the same time. The price charged in total for more than one booking will always equal the prices charged separately for each individual booking. All properties are available to be purchased separately at the same price as they are when more than one booking is made. This means that any multiple bookings do not constitute a package as defined in the Package Travel, Package Holidays and Package Tours Regulations 1992.

Visa, passport, and health requirements
Unless you tell us otherwise, we are entitled to assume that all members of your party are British citizens who hold or will hold full British passports valid for the entire duration of the arrangements you chose to purchase. Information on visa, passport and health requirements, where given and applicable, is so given on this basis. Requirements may change and you are therefore strongly recommended to check the up to date position with the supplier of the arrangements, Passport Office, appropriate embassy or consulate or your doctor as applicable in good time before departure.
Non-British passport holders, including other EU nationals, should obtain up to date advice on passport and visa requirements from the Embassy, High Commission or Consulate of your destination or country(ies) through which you are travelling,

You agree to reimburse us in relation to any fines or other losses which we incur as a result of your failure to comply with any passport, visa, immigration requirements or health formalities.
Privacy and your personal information
The booking information that you provide to us will be passed on only to the relevant principal or other persons necessary for the provision of your accommodation or other services. The information may, therefore, be provided to public authorities such as customs or immigration if required by them, or as required by law. This applies to any sensitive information that you give to us such as details of any disabilities, or dietary and religious requirements. Certain information may also be passed on to security or credit checking companies. If you travel outside the European Economic Area, controls on data protection may not be as strong as the legal requirements in this country. If we cannot pass this information on as above, whether in the EEA or not, we will be unable to provide your booking. In making this booking, you consent to this information being passed on to the relevant persons.
Law and Jurisdiction
These terms are governed by English law and the courts of England shall have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any such dispute or claim.
