At most of our homes we provide a welcome pack containing some basic consumer products such as water, milk, eggs, biscuits, toasts or bread, snacks, tea, jam and a bottle of wine. It is our way to welcome you and to thank you for your preference. If however you plan to arrive late and want a more complete package please see your options below.

pre-arrival shoppings

Pre-Arrival Stock Up

We do provide a basic welcome pack (when available) in most of our properties but if you would appreciate having the fridge stocked up by the time of your arrival, we can provide that for you too. This will save you having to wake up earlier the next day to go grocery shopping. You can just provide us with a shopping list, we will make sure it is there by your arrival. The cost for this service is simple, 20€ or 10% of the bill, whichever is greater.

Pool Heating

Pool Heating

In colder months having a heated pool can make all the difference, especially with the younger in the family. From April to late November this is a very sought after extra, if you plan on having the pool heated for your holiday than it pays to book it well in advance. The supply is limited but we have over a dozen heat pumps that we can fit to almost all of the properties we represent. Please book it via the booking form or talk to us via phone or email. Please check our pool heating FAQ.

Pool Fence

Pool Fence

If you have young children and security around the pool is paramount than we can solve that too. We can have a fence installed, complete with door, for a fee. This is quite cost and labour intensive and this is the reason we ask for 150€ to have it fitted by your arrival. Almost all of our properties can have this fence installed. Talk to us if you would like to enquire about availability.

Outdoor games

Your villa does not come with a table tennis table as standard equipment? No problem, we can supply a quality outdoor table for a modest fee. For just 75€ we will supply the table, racquets and balls so that you can keep everyone in the family busy during the holiday.
