Travel Extras

Insurance 4 Car Hire - Excess Waiver

Security Deposits

Most villas and some Apartments require a deposit against breakages, excess electricity usage for heating/air conditioning, and telephone use. You will be advised of the amount at the time of booking. This will be paid with the cost of your holiday, ten weeks before travelling, and will be refunded within 10 days of your return, less any unpaid items. It is normally 250 for villas and 150 for several of our apartments.

Cots & Highchairs in Villas and Apartments

Charges for cots and high chairs vary between villas, but generally a cot is 20 per week and a high chair is 5 per week

Extra Beds in Villas & Apartments

Extra beds can be provided in most properties to sleep an extra person. This is not to accommodate an extra adult, but for a child. The extra bed may be used in a bedroom subject to enough space, or in a sitting or dining area if required. The normal charge for an extra bed to include linen and towels is 50 per week.

Heating and Electricity in Villas & Apartments

During the winter period 1st November to 31st March, unless otherwise stated, an allowance is included in your holiday cost for normal consumption of electricity. This will be advised to you in units of electricity on arrival at your villa. Any electricity used in excess of this, will be charged to you locally. The meter will be read before, and at the end of your holiday. Logs for use on fires and stoves may be purchased locally. For villas with air conditioning, a similar allowance will be given in the summer, so it is in your own interests to ensure economical use of air conditioning units and heaters.

Swimming Pool Heating
Costs vary with each villa, depending on whether it is gas or electricity, the size of the pool and the outside temperature. Pool heating is invaluable in early and late season, and in winter pools are considered too cold to swim without pool heating. In the unlikely event of a pool heating failure, the cost of heating the pool will be refunded for each day when the heating was not working. No further refund can be considered.

A general guide to the weekly figure for pool heating is shown below:

  1 Week 2 Weeks
Villa Antonio 150 300
Cantinho das Oliveiras 150 300
Casa Das Heras 150 300
Casa C 155 260
