If you would like to visit any of the towns we fly over in the evening after flying then hire cars are the way forward. We can now recommend a reliable car firm that offers cars from any of the local airports.

Accommodation

Our house is lovely but it´s not a hotel there are no ensuites and prices are based on two sharing, if your a women then you'll more than likely get a room to yourself but if you want to gurantee a room to your self tick the single room supplement on the form.

The village and eating out

The area you will be visiting is, in our opinion, one of the finest and most beautiful regions in all of Southern Spain. The area is steeped in history as well as stunning countryside. The village of Algodonales boasts plenty of tapas bars and food and drink is incredibly cheap by comparison to the Uk. Breakfast is available if you wish in the square or feel free to shop and eat in the house.

During the day we can if requested, provide a packed lunch at an additional cost of 50 euros per week. Evening's you will get a chance to peruse the choice in the village. As for cash you can use all debit cards in the village cash machines but quite often there is a limit to how much one can draw in a day unless you have a prior arrangement with your bank.

Outstanding balance

If you have an outstanding balance to FlySpain, then Euros is best on arrival. Absolutely no English cheques as the Spanish banking fraternity are very good at charging us extra.

Credit card payments over 1500 euros are subject to a 2% bank charge.

Cancellations

Deposits are non refundable and last minute cancellations of two weeks or less will mean that you will be liable to the full weeks fee.

 

If you have any others questions about your stay don’t hesitate to either ring or email.

We look forward to meeting you.
