We cannot accept any liability whatsoever for any injury/death caused as a result of using the swimming pools. You are particularly advised never to allow children to use the pools unsupervised.

This credit should be able to cover the usage of a/c for the week. Should you use this credit, extra usage has to be paid for by purchasing a pre paid card from the management. This measure has been taken to avoid wastage of electricity while the villa is not occupied. Any damage/ loss to the a/c remotes will result to a cost of €100 each.
Maintenance: All breakages, accidents, problems and losses must be reported to the management as soon as they occur so that they can be attended to.
