Occasionally, changes have to be made and errors corrected both before and after bookings have been confirmed and confirmed bookings cancelled. Whilst changes and cancellations are always avoided where possible, we must reserve the right to do so.


Most changes are minor however occasionally we have to make a major change. Major changes include the following when made before departure to your resort, or your accommodation. We reserve the right to make any necessary alteration to your travel arrangements in a force majeure situation. If we have to make a major change or cancel your booking, we will tell you as soon as possible, and you then have the following options:


a. accepting the changed arrangements as offered by us. or

b. accepting a replacement property from us of equivalent or closely similar standard and price, if one is available, or

c. cancelling, in which case you will receive a full and quick refund of all monies you have paid to us.

You must tell us which option you wish to take within 7 days of our offer of the alternative accommodation. If you do not, we will book the replacement property for you.

a. Where the changes are due to war or threat of war, riots, civil strike, terrorist activity, industrial disputes, natural disasters, fire, epidemics, health risks, technical problems to transport beyond our control or that of our suppliers, closure or congestion of airports, stations or ports, cancellations or changes of schedules by carriers ceasing to operate, severe weather conditions and similar events outside our control;

b. No compensation will be payable where cancellation results from your failure to make all payments due in full and on time;




If you have a complaint:


a. If you have a justifiable complaint concerning your holiday accommodation, then you must first try to resolve it with our representative.

b. You must give us the opportunity to try to resolve any problems or complaints you may have whilst you are at the property. Please ensure you leave a telephone number and a time for us to contact you. If your telephone phone is a mobile, ensure it is switched on. We may need time to make arrangements. Owners/key holders, maintenance and repair people must be given access to the property if you have a problem.  You must agree to meet with the owner/key holder directly to discuss any situation which may arise.

e. We will deal with all observations and/or comments received in writing.

We consider travel insurance to be so essential that it is a condition of booking that you arranged your own comprehensive insurance cover, which includes cover for accidental damage and personal liability. We reserve the right to request proof of your insurance at any time. We accept no liability for the consequences of your travelling without adequate travel insurance. Please read your policy details carefully, it is up to you to ensure that the insurance cover you take is adequate for your needs.




A refundable ‘damage’ deposit of £250.00 for the Villa Vouno Theaor £150 for Villa Cresta and Kate's Apartment must be paid four weeks before you stay in the property. This refundable damage/breakage/loss/security deposit will be repaid to the leader name on the booking within two weeks of your departure from the property, providing there have been no reported breakages or damage to the material structure of the property or that the property has been left excessively dirty and that the keys have been returned to the key safe. We reserve the right to retain the damage deposit (either in part or full) to cover any such damage/breakage/loss during your stay, including supplements for any additional guests previously unnotified. If there are any extra handling or bank charges, we reserve the right to deduct them from the security deposit(bond). 


Within 24 hours of your arrival at the property you should advise us or our representative, of any faults or damage/breakage/loss found, otherwise it will be presumed that the damage/breakage/loss was caused by yourselves and a charge will be made.

Any damage caused by yourselves or a third party invited by you to the accommodation shall be your liability. Liability under this clause shall be the cost of replacement, repair or reinstatement, which will be deducted from the damage deposit. Should the amount of breakage/damage /loss exceed the amount of the damage deposit taken, an invoice for these costs together with any administrative charge and/or legal expenses incurred will be raised.


The appointed local representative will check the property after your departure and will advise us of any damage/breakage/loss. The owner reserves the right to pursue you for recompense for any or all damages/breakage/loss caused which exceeds the retained value of the damage deposit.


Errors and Omissions


Occasionally errors occur so therefore you must ensure you check all details of your chosen holiday (including the price) with us at the time of booking.




Although we do not control the day-to-day operations of our suppliers, we accept responsibility for the acts and omissions of our employees, subcontractors and local agents acting in the course of their employment if facilities or services which form part of the holiday which we have promised to provide are defective. However, in some countries, local standards will not be the same as in the UK and it is not always within our control to impose our own standards there. We do not accept responsibility if you suffer illness, injury or death on holiday unless it is due to the negligence of our agents, suppliers or sub-contractors acting in the course of their employment, and the incident is reported to the supplier and to us in resort and you write to us within one month of your return from holiday. In addition, we will not be responsible where you do not enjoy your holiday or suffer any problems because of a reason you did not tell us about when you booked your holiday or where any problems you suffered did not result from any breach of your contract or fault of ourselves or for any losses, expenses or other sum you have suffered related to any business. Please note we cannot accept responsibility for any services which do not form part of your contract.


The promises we make to you about the services we have agreed to provide or arrange as part of your contract - and the laws and regulations of the country in which your claim or complaint occurred - will be used as the basis for deciding whether the services in question have been properly provided. If the particular services which gave rise to the claim or complaint complied with local laws and regulations applicable to those services at the time, the services will be treated as having been properly provided. This will be the case even if the services did not comply with the laws and regulations of the UK which would have applied had those services been provided in the UK. The exception to this is where the claim or complaint concerns the absence of a safety feature which might lead a reasonable holiday maker to refuse to take the holiday in question.




Under no circumstances must any item(s) for use inside the property, be moved outside.


As in England, the cost of electricity is rising in Cyprus the cost of any air-conditioning is included in the property price, please only use the units whilst you are in the property, with all windows and doors kept closed. Under no circumstances must the air conditioning units be left on continuously whilst the property is unoccupied or with windows and doors open.

If you wish to have the air con without the timers, it is an extra £15 per night per Air con unit, payable in advance or if necessary locally for labour and cost.
