- TO BOOK YOUR APARTMENT
Short term rentals:
In order to reserve an apartment you will be required to pay
a deposit of around 25% of the agreed rental. For the majority of apartments
it will be possible to pay by using your credit card. For others the preferred
method of payment is Pay
Pal. Pay Pal is secure and allow you to pay by using your credit
card. Please make your payment with Pay Pal only after receiving our
formal request including the details of your booking.
For short term/all inclusive price rentals the deposit you pay to reserve
the apartment will normally be treated as part payment and on arrival
you will be only required to pay the balance.
Long term rentals:
For long term rentals it is more likely that you will be required to make
a bank transfer in favour of the owner of the apartment (normally for
an amount equal to a month rental). For long term rentals the deposit
you pay to book the apartment will be held as a guarantee and returned
to you at the end of the tenancy (after deducting the cost of utilities
and possible damages);
PAYMENT) - CASH OR CREDIT CARD?
At your arrival most owners expect payment in cash or travelers cheque's
(as some of them has no credit card facilities). In same cases we can
take credit card payments but there is an extra charge of 4%. If you wish
to pay the balance by using your card please enquire before arrival to
make sure we this is possible. It is also very important you contact
your credit card Company before leaving your Country to ensure that authorization
will be granted (often authorization is denied for amount over 400 dollars

in advance if it is a long term rental).

of our apartments are in buildings at least 200 years old (but more often

done up in the last 15 years and have central heating and often airconditioning,
