children

Due to the specific nature of grounds, number of stairs, terraces and lack of lawns, the Villa might be unsuitable for children under 10 years of age.

Young children should be supervised at all time. The supervision of the children is the guests’ sole responsibility.

The Villa staff will not be held responsible for any children left unattended within the Villa area.

The safety precautions for children described below should be considered at all times.

The number and identity of guests in a particular rental period, will be contained in the list of guests, which shall be compiled at the Villa immediately upon the arrival of the guests.

Only the number of guests confirmed on the Confirmation letter may occupy and use the facilities of the Villa unless agreed otherwise in writing prior to arrival.

The requested change of the guest number must be submitted in writing.

There are to be no parties or any additional people invited to eat or stay overnight without the prior written consent of the Villa owner. In case that permission is given the Villa owner reserves the right to charge extra for the services provided.

Should the number of guests exceed the maximum capacity of the Villa, the Villa owner reserves the right to refuse you entry to the Villa or terminate the Villa rental without refund, as described above.

 

Indoor Areas

The Villa is completely furnished and decorated; it should therefore be left in the same condition after the guest's departure. The guest should at all times act carefully with the furniture and equipment and should not touch or move the art and paintings.

Any furniture, linen and towels out of the house should not be taken into the garden. Special garden furniture and pool towels are available for outdoor areas.

The guest should make sure to understand how any electrical equipment he/she is not familiar with is used and should refrain from changing any existing settings. Manuals for any devices and equipment, or instructions on how to properly use them can be provided by Villa manager, who should be contacted for help.

When leaving the Villa the guest must lock the doors to the apartments/rooms, switch off the lights and all electrical appliances (TV, air-conditioning, gas stove...) and turn off the taps.
