Please note that the boatel is not an official tourist structure, such as a hotel, residences, etc. But a private dwelling and as such their personal property. Being such, there is no standard or categories that are internationally recognised; indeed it reflects the architecture and furnishings, the local traditions and the personal taste of the owner. This is precisely the kind of holiday that we offer: The chance to partake in the culture of the area chosen, living for a set period in the same surroundings as an inhabitant would. We cannot however exclude the possibility that these differences can sometimes result in minor inconveniences – due to the special nature of its architecture and of traditions in the area – but which cannot be accepted as complaints.

When clients leave the property they must leave the property in a respectable condition. Where excessive cleaning is required £20 per hour fee will be deducted from the credit card details supplied.
