CANCELLATION POLICIES

Cancellation of booking may result in forfeiture of deposit and payments paid. Refunds for the property rental will only be made if the property is rebooked for the initial period of the booking. Dates can be modified up to 90 days prior to arrival (price adjustment may apply).

In case of cancellation of flight or a positive Covid test, the above policy applies. In order to cover cancellation due to sickness including Covid, guests booking our villas are strongly advised to contract a Travel Insurance covering all medical risks and trip cancellation. For a couple hundred USD, this will take away the headache for you our valued guest and for us having blocked a villa for a long time.  Hereunder are a few links to companies offering Travel Insurance as a simple example. You are welcomed to use any other Travel Insurance which would cover Covid related sickness preventing you from traveling in case or positive Covid test.

New dates are subject to availability on the same property or other property agreed upon, prices will be adjusted if there is an increase in pricing.

SAFETY MEASURES

In order to avoid contact, we offer self check-in. Each guest will have access to our Guest Experience Portail with all documents necessary for your travel (property book, itinerary, entrance codes, etc). This portail also has a Chat to contact us directly.

Each property has a sanitizing gel dispenser. Our housekeepers have specific cleaning procedures to follow. Most of the establishments you will visit have a mask mandatory policy.
