Confirming your rental and what is included in the price

In order to confirm your rental you must pay the following:
  • 1st month's rent + one-time agency fee
  • Agency fee:
    • 1-11 months – the agency fee is included in the total rental price shown on the website
    • 11 months to 3 years – the agency fee is equivalent to 10% of the annual rent + VAT
    • IMPORTANT: In case of cancellation, no refund will be made on the agency fee or the first month’s rental amount. Cancellations must be made in writing.
Linens and towels are included in the rental price for stays of up to 11 months. For stays of more than 11 months we may provide a set from 40€.
Final cleaning procedure:
The apartment must be fully cleaned once the rental period is complete. The charge for this must be paid by the tenant. The price is determined by the size of the apartment in m2.
You will be charged a minimum monthly rate for utilities such as gas, electricity, water and Internet according to the size of the apartment: 1 bedroom – 120€; 2 bedrooms – 200€, 3 bedrooms – 250€, 4 or more bedrooms: 300€. At the end of your stay we will check the bills and if there are any outstanding amounts that have not been covered by your monthly payments we will deduct these from your deposit.
We provide a maintenance service for the apartment and we will resolve any problems which may occur during your stay. If the problem is a result of a misuse of the apartment or anything inside it, you will be charged for any repair or replacement costs incurred.

How to make your payments

For stays from 1-11 months, payment to confirm the rental can be made online by credit/debit card, PayPal or bank transfer. For stays of more than 11 months, payments must be made by bank transfer, unless another form of payment has been agreed upon with one of our agents.
