Reservation and cancellation
To finalize your reservation, we will ask you for a deposit to be paid as an exception during the pandemic only 10 days before your arrival instead of the usual 28 days. The amount requested will be the equivalent of the 1st night's stay for bed and breakfast rooms or 50% for self-catering holiday apartments. Please note that during the COVID-19 official state of health emergency for cancellations up to 10 days before arrival deposits will be refunded.
If during the pandemic you have to cancel your reservation less than 10 days before arrival owing to a change of circumstances beyond your control, you will receive a credit for the deposit paid to be used against an equivalent stay in the next 18 months on a date to suit both you and us. See here for details on credit notes on the Ministry of Economy website
Cleanliness is at the heart of our and your concerns and to ensure the safety of our guests and contain the spread of COVID-19 we have implemented a stringent cleaning protocol using anti-viral products and the scrupulous disinfection of any surface likely to have been touched. Until 8 June 2021 we will be observing the recommended waiting period and will leave your accommodation unoccupied for a minimum of 24 hours between bookings to ensure enough time to clean and disinfect plus an additional safety period.
We wash the bedding and towels on a steam cycle adding a disinfectant product and supply our guests with liquid soap, hand sanitizer, disposable tissues and toilet paper. You can also request a free washable and reusable mask if required
If you prefer you are welcome to provide your own bedding and towels in which case we would ask you let us know ahead of time and get in touch for the bed sizes
Our self-catering flats and B & B rooms are unfortunately not suitable for people infected with Covid-19 wishing to self-isolate during their recovery
For guests staying in bed and breakfast rooms, continental breakfast is included in the room price and is served individually in the large communal area or on the south-facing terrace in fine weather. We now have 4 separate dining tables for 4 B & B rooms each spaced 2+ meters apart. We can however serve your breakfast on request at a single table of up to 14 people in the same group and in compliance with current regulations governing the maximum number of people who may gather at any time
When moving around outside of your room you might like to wear a mask - as iscompulsory in cafes, bars and restaurants when you are not sitting and inside all public spaces when they're open. For your protection do remember to pack resealable freezer bags so you have a place to put your mask while you eat
For apartment rentals and in compliance with precautionary measures to reduce the risk of exposure, we currently implement a contactless welcome and for all customers we prefer card payment over the phone or via a secure card payment link which we will send you by email during your stay
We will handle any requests from guests within the limits of sanitary constraints and for this reason during the state of health emergency we avoid entering the rooms or apartments and will temporarily not be able to carry out the usual daily cleaning in B & B rooms or the weekly clean in self-catering accommodation - only a thorough cleaning between rentals of course - but we are happy to provide clean towels and bedlinen on request. We apologise for this inconvenience and we will resume usual housekeeping as soon as possible
We also apologize for not being able to offer tourist information in paper form but fortunately everything is now available online and you will find web links in your room. We are also sorry not to be able to offer the usual tea and coffee-making facilities in the communal area for the moment. Please accept our apologies
