Terms and Conditions will vary slightly from villa to villa but the following is a general guide.
Once you reserve a villa a 50% deposit is due within 7 days of booking to confirm. Failure to make this payment subjects your reservation to automatic cancellation without notice to you. The balance must be paid in full at least 60 days prior to your arrival.
All changes for bookings and cancellations must be received in writing by fax, email or mail. A 20% cancellation fee (on the total rent) will be charged on all cancellations occurring 61 days or more prior to arrival date. A 50% cancellation fee will be charged on cancellations made 46-60 days prior to arrival date. If your cancellation is received within 45 days of your arrival date, there will be no refund. There will be no refund granted for late arrivals or premature departures.
For peace of mind we recommend travel and trip cancellation insurance.
It is the guests’ responsibility to travel with the correct documentation. If you have any questions about the required documents, please call or e-mail us.
You, as the guest, agree to take all reasonable steps to ensure that your guests or families adhere to the rules and regulations affecting your villa.
