WE PROVIDE SELF-CATERING ACCOMMODATION
The style and standard of our properties will inevitably differ across resorts and destinations, ranging from individually owned properties, furnished to the owner’s taste, to purpose-built holiday homes and resorts.
We endeavor to give an accurate description of the villa and provide you with interior and exterior photographs, as up-to-date as possible. Please note that the furnishings are subject to change, without prior notice, to allow for repair, cleaning, and replacement of broken items, and there may not be sufficient time for us to update the property’s photographs.
There should be adequate dining, seating, beds, cutlery etc. for the maximum occupancy in the villa. Villas will be supplied with sun beds, but these belong to the owner and can vary from property to property. Owners are not obliged to supply sun umbrellas.
It is important that you not only read the individual descriptions but also speak to us to obtain a better understanding of each villa and the surrounding area.
If you have specific requirements, please call us or email us so we can ensure you are choosing the right villa for your holiday.
The information and prices are not ‘live’ and are updated from time to time. Although we make every effort to ensure the accuracy of the information, availability, and pricing, regrettably errors do occasionally occur.
We may change any aspect of the property or its content, including the availability, features, information, or other content, at any time without notice.
You must, therefore, ensure you check the price and all other details of your chosen arrangements with our representative at the time of booking. All basic rental rates include taxes (unless otherwise stated).
When the chosen payment method is by credit card, we will collect all necessary credit card details by applicable legislation. Information collected by us about the credit cards used will not be further processed or stored and will be destroyed once the payment has been processed. In the event of balance payments being made by credit/debit card or PayPal, we reserve the right to charge a non-refundable 2.4% (AMEX 4%) charge to cover processing costs.
No additional charge is made for balance payments by bank transfer or cheque. If a booking is made within 7 days of arrival, the following must apply: The booking must be in the name of the cardholder. A driving license and passport or ID copy must be sent to us. All documents must match the name of the cardholder.
A security deposit of euro 400 up to 1500, unless otherwise stated, must be provided at the time of booking. The security deposit less any such charges will be refunded by bank transfer or check, or credit card as soon as the owner has completed its inventory and occupancy report.
Usually refunded within 14 days after your departure from the villa. At the time of booking your rental, you must give us debit or credit card authorization to debit your card on behalf of the owner up to the limit of your Security Deposit for the property, to cover any loss (such as breakages) or unpaid charges incurred during your accommodation. Charges will be made to your card without prior consultation.
We reserve the right to pursue payment if your card is not authorized. Please note that the security deposit does not cover you for willful and negligent behavior. If the amount of the Security Deposit is not sufficient to cover the costs the owner is entitled to recover any additional costs from you and an additional charge will be made locally.
The single sex groups or groups of young adults (aged between 18-21 years), may only be accepted at selected villas; All single sex groups and/or groups of young adults (5 or more people) will be required to pay an extra security deposit of €150,00 per person, or per the maximum number of beds, whichever is greater.
Maximum Occupancy must not be exceeded except by our prior written agreement. Infants in cots may be accommodated on request even if the total number of persons exceeds Maximum Occupancy.
The Maximum Occupancy is quoted for each villa and is determined by the authorities. Please note that the contravention of the above will render your booking void and all money will be forfeited.
We reserve the right of immediate eviction from the Property if you exceed the Maximum Occupancy without our prior knowledge and written consent, or, at our absolute discretion, to exclude any additional persons from the Property or to make a supplementary charge. Camping and parking of caravans are not permitted under any circumstances in the grounds of the Property.
The accommodation is exclusively reserved for the people named on the booking form and no other persons are permitted to stay at the property unless this has been agreed with us in writing. Additional guests will be asked to vacate the accommodation. If applicable an additional charge or €120.00 per person per night for guests in addition to the maximum as stated in the property will be assessed.
You should, on departure, leave the accommodation in a reasonably clean and tidy condition so that we can efficiently prepare it for our next guests. If additional cleaning is necessary, a charge will be made locally or an invoice will be done to you at the property.
PROPERTY RE-ARRANGEMENT AND REPAIR
You must take good care of and respect the property and report as soon as any defects in its equipment and facilities occur. In particular, you agree to clean thoroughly any item that has had substantial usage during your holiday, related to ovens, grills, and refrigerators.
Any re-arrangement of interior furnishings you make during your stay must be reversed prior to departure, otherwise, a charge will be payable for this service or any damage caused as a result. The owner reserves the right of immediate eviction from the property if any serious abuse of the property takes place.
The Rental period begins at 15.00 pm hours on the day of arrival and terminates at 11.00 am hours on the day of departure (unless otherwise stated or permission has been granted for early check-in or late check out).
TRANSFER OF BOOKINGS
If you are unavoidably prevented from traveling, you may transfer your booking to a third party provided they accept in writing the Booking Conditions that apply to your holiday and make any outstanding payments to us by the due date. Your entitlement to such transfer is subject to payment to us of an administration fee of euro 100 and our retention of any non-recoverable charges relating to your holiday.
IF YOU CHANGE YOUR BOOKING
If you wish to change your travel arrangements in any way, once your booking has been confirmed (for example your chosen departure date or accommodation) we will do our utmost to accommodate these changes, however, it may not always be possible.
Any requested changes may be subject to additional costs. The exact amount of that cost will be notified to you before you choose to proceed with any changes. Where we are unable to assist you and you do not wish to proceed with the original booking we will treat this as a cancellation by you.
(Cancellations by you)
If you wish to cancel your accommodation once a deposit or a full balance has been paid, we require notice of cancellation (by recorded delivery letter or email) from the person who made the booking. No cancellation will be deemed to have taken effect until such notice has been received and acknowledged in writing by us. We reserve the right to make the following cancellation charges:
Notice Period Cancellation charge
31 days 30% to 50%
0 to 30 days 100%
In the case of a cancellation taking place within 30 days before the start of your rental period, the cancellation charge will be reduced to 50% if the property is re-let for the full canceled period. You are strongly recommended to take out adequate holiday/vacation insurance to cover possible cancellation as soon as your holiday is confirmed. If the reason for cancellation falls within the categories covered by your insurance policy, you agree to make a claim directly to your insurance company.
The cancellation charges stated above will also apply if you wish to change your rental dates and/or book a different property but if these amendments are requested more than 58 days before the start of your rental period, your deposit (less an administration charge of euro 200) will be credited to your new booking.
(Changes/cancellations by the owner)
The owner reserves the right to make changes to your holiday property and/or services that are considered necessary to operating requirements after we have confirmed your booking. If the Owner does so, we will use all reasonable commercial endeavors to inform you as soon as possible and to make suitable alternative arrangements if requested. Alternatively, you may ask for a refund of monies paid.
If the Owner is obliged to cancel your booking through Force Majeure, the sale of the property, or for any reason outside the owner’s control, we will offer you suitable alternative accommodation, subject to availability.
If the proposed property costs less than the price of the original holiday, you will be reimbursed the difference.
If the proposed property costs more, we will not charge you the difference.
If you do not accept one of the properties offered to you and instead select another available Property from our portfolio, and if the proposed property costs more, you will be required to pay the difference.
