When you have booked your flights I will send you a form to complete with your passport details for all members of your party and flight numbers. We have to provide this information to the local authorities to allow us to rent out our apartment, it is similar to hotels asking for passports upon arrival.
If you would like airport transfers we can organise this, we use a very reliable company and you pay the driver.
If you have booked airport transfers please ask the driver to take you to apartment 7 where you will find a key box accessed by a code which we will advise prior to your arrival, the master key will be in the box and further keys will be inside the apartment, please replace the master key into the key box and re-muddle the code.
There is a cash machine, a place to store luggage, a book exchange and lots of visitor information at reception. Reception can call and order taxis for you. Reception is open from 08.00 till 00.00 midnight. Safe rental is charged by reception and a deposit for the key is refunded upon its return. The safe is located in the wardrobe of the master bedroom.

Check In from 3pm
Check Out at 10am
Early check in/Late check out may be possible depending on arrival times of next guests so please ask and if at all possible we will be happy to accommodate you.
On your departure day please clear the apartment so that it is ready for cleaning - remove all rubbish to the dustbin areas. It is not necessary to clean as a full departure clean is included in the rental fee. However, if any extra cleaning is required above what is considered normal then cleaning charges will be taken from your security deposit.
If you have time, it would be most appreciated if you could put all the dirty towels into the bath, leave beds stripped and used bedlinen folded and ready for delivery to the launderette.
Please remember to let us know if there have been any breakages or damages in the apartment so these can be replaced/repaired and made readily available for the next clients.
We do not offer linen change during your stay as there is a washing machine for your use for fresh laundry as required. White towels should be washed at 90 degrees with conditioner and detergent, there is a selection of cleaning products provided in the kitchen for your use. Beach towels are also provided for your use and we ask that you wash them on your last day so they are ready for the next clients.
If you would like a mid stay linen change that can be organised for you at an extra cost please ask for the current prices.
