Breakage deposits on French Gites

Jump to last reply

After much deliberation, I settled on a gite in the Dordogne which was booked through en tout saisons. When the contract and payment terms arrived via email I learned that I was required to make a breakage deposit of 400 euros upon arrival.

Is this customary? I've rented houses and flats in France and Italy before but never encountered a breakage fee before. Can anyone provide some guidance? I'm nervous that when we depart, on a tight schedule, it might be difficult to retrieve the deposit.
