The last thing you want to be doing while on holiday is cleaning or washing the bedding and towels etc… Why not let someone else do it for you? Simply relax and forget about the house-keeping for the duration of your stay.

It is recommended to request this service at least 7 days before arrival but this can be negotiable depending on the villa.
Please note, some of our villas supply pool towels but this is not always the case. Please contact us if you are unsure and we can arrange that for you at a small cost to save you filling your suitcase unnecessarily!
