What to Expect
The villas and apartments we select are all privately owned, individually furnished and are of a good standard. They therefore tend to have less problems than most but we do, however, wish to point out a few of the things which can be sent to try us when on holiday. Small repairs such as dead light bulbs and sticking door handles should be taken care of with a word to your property owner/manager. However we are in the hands of third parties such as owners or their managers and sometimes we rely upon their reaction to something which, whilst naturally appearing very important to you, will possibly not provoke the same urgency in them. Plumbing can also present a few problems, not least if it rains, and unlike in many countries there are no 24 hour call out facilities for plumbing or electrical emergencies. Many villas and apartments rely on their own wells for water, which being drawn by an electric pump, can give the impression of erratic pressure and varying temperature.
If bad weather is experienced however, this may affect the condition of the swimming pool and whilst it will be attended to as soon as possible, pool maintenance people are extremely busy at times like this. During storms electricity supplies can be cut without warning.
The accommodation found in the shared pools sections usually have on site managers and these problems that seldom occur are quickly resolved.
The responsibility of the property manager is to give guests access to the accommodation, to explain how appliances and facilities function and to collect any on site charges.
Televisions are not satellite unless otherwise stated.
You can expect the following items in the villa, should they not be available we will do our best to make sure it is indicated on the villa description
1. Hairdryer
2. Cot
3. High chair
4. Toaster
5. American coffee machine
6. Expresso machine/moka
7. TV sat (english news only)
8. BBQ (this maybe private to the villa or communal)
9. Kettle
10. Iron
11. Ironing board
12. CD player
13. Clothes airer
Advance Registrations 2016
Generally, once our brochure is released, villas and apartments to which many of our clients travel to year after year are snapped up very quickly and, if you were to wait, you may find that your choice has been booked already. To avoid this, if you have a particular preference from our brochure or whilst on holiday with us you have seen another of our properties which is of interest to you, then we will be happy to pre-register your choice and dates of travel for the following year.

Simply contact us from the top menu of any page for our contact details. You can reserve your choice for 2016. However the registration is only taken subject to the contract for the property being renewed and as such we would not suggest that flights are booked prior to the accommodation being confirmed.

Pool cleaning and garden maintenance are usually carried out weekly. Final clean charge is usually included in the price, due to Italian law the owner of the accommodation may not offer you this service so it is carried out by a third party, we do ask that the villa is left in a reasonable condition with all washing up done. Should this not be included we will indicated it on the property description and you will be required to pay this charge on arrival at the property.

Welcome Hamper
On request we can provide these in villas and apartments at the start of your holiday in order to save you an immediate visit to the supermarket.

Bread, Water, Sugar, Butter, Milk, Teabags, Rubbish bags, Eggs, Coffee, Fruit Juice,Toilet roll - please make any special requests and we'll do our best. Please pay on arrival for your Welcome Hamper
Cots and Highchairs
Cots and highchairs are usually added free of charge on request but may not be of the types normally found in the UK and similarly cots may be travel cots, highchairs may be the clip on variety.
If you have special requirements please let us know and we will do our very best for you.

Arrival & Departure times
Villas and apartments will usually be cleaned and ready for occupation on the day of your arrival by 4pm, although in some cases it may be possible to gain access before this time in order to leave your luggage in the property. You must vacate your property by 10am on your day of departure in order to give us time to prepare for new arrivals. If you have a return flight later in the day, it may be possible for us to make arrangements for storing your luggage on that day but this cannot be guaranteed and the property owner/manager will normally only be able to confirm this for you shortly before your departure.
Occupancy & Extra Beds
In order to allow for provision of sufficient linen and towels, it is essential that we are advised of the total number in your party and their names should be included on the booking form. Unlike many tour operators who try to pack as many people into a property with no thought for practicalities or comfort, we try to take a realistic view and some apartments and villas can accommodate extra beds. These are marked next to the relevant properties and although some properties have bedrooms large enough to take additional beds, others will only have space in the lounge. Extra beds may take the form of camp, folding or utilise existing sofabeds and the weekly supplement charged is to cover the extra linen and maid service. Please do not hesitate to call us should you wish to clarify details on a specific property.

Single Travellers
Those of you who are single travellers may feel that the cost per person of your holiday appears higher than it should be. The reason for this is that our contract with the property owner is based on a price per accommodation and therefore the per person price for a lone traveller may include the entire accommodation cost. We do not make additional or excessive profits from these sales, the prices charged merely reflect the real cost to us.
A Note About Private Villas
These properties are a good way of "getting away from it all", but a few points should be noted especially for those who are thinking of taking this type of holiday for the first time. As the name suggests, private villas - especially those in the countryside - will have a selection of wildlife around them. As villas tend to be in the countryside, it is a good idea to take a torch with you, particularly if walking after sunset.

Swimming pools are cleaned and treated usually once a week, in order to keep the garden in good order, it may be necessary for the owners or their gardeners to make visits during your stay. Most villas will be supplied with sunbeds although these will belong to the owner and can vary from property to property. The majority are of the plastic type and will not have cushions on them as these become stained after a short time thus making them difficult to maintain in good condition.

Brochure & Website Accuracy
The information for each property quotes sizes of pools in metres, along with approximate distances to towns, shops and the nearest restuarants. These are for guidance only and where pools are of an irregular size, sizes are measured at their widest points. Similarly, the floor plans are shown to give a general indication of the overall layout and room configuration of the property. They are not drawn to scale and the colours used are not meant to be representative of actual details.

Unfortunately, it is inevitable that some of the details on our website or brochure may have changed since they were printed and we will advise you of changes to any details at the time you confirm your booking or as soon as we become aware of them, whichever is sooner.

Disabled Clients
Whilst we are not a specialist tour operator in the field of holidays for the disabled, we will do our utmost to provide you with as much information as possible in order that you can make an informed choice.  Please ask us for further details.
