Other things to note
RENTAL CONDITION: Portuguese law requires all short-term lets and hotels to notify the border police of the full passport details of all guests staying in Portugal. Please provide a photo of the main page of the passports of all people (including infants) staying in the apartment via email. Without this information your booking will be cancelled on the day of your arrival.
We also require your flight code and arrival time to arrange your check-in. Please send these two pieces of information as soon as possible. As soon as we receive this, we will send you full instructions on how to retrieve the key to our apartment.
Booking of groups of more than 2 people under the age of 30 will be automatically cancelled due to consistently bad experiences in rule breaking.
We would appreciate you look after our home as if it were yours. We would very much appreciate if you didn't:
• Smoke in the apartment (you may smoke on the balcony as long as you dispose of your butts appropriately (not onto the street!)
• Inconvenience neighbours with undue noise after 10 PM
A comprehensive handbook will be supplied at check-in providing a little more detail.
