HEALTH & SAFETY

Our team has taken all steps in order to ensure you have a pleasant and safe holiday however, please note that safety standards and regulations do vary from country to country therefore, safety levels in all our properties are assessed in accordance with these.
It is highly recommended that all clients take precautions to safeguard their own safety and that of their family and guests, especially children, people with disabilities and the elderly.

General Safety

In general, we would suggest you exercise the same cautions and care that you would at home.
Once you arrive at the villa, take some time to familiarise yourself with all interior and exterior areas.

  • look around the garden of the villa in daylight to familiarise yourself with any drop-offs, low walls or steep descents.
  • remember that children may be less careful than adults in new ambience and surroundings thus, take extra care with children on stairs, balconies and around water at all times, but mainly during the 1st day when everything is unfamiliar. There is no substitute for parental vigilance.

Child Safety

  • please exercise caution as children will be in unfamiliar surroundings.
  • high chairs may not have a harness. Please do not leave children unattended in a high chair and ensure they are secure.
  • It is possible that cots provided in villas are travel cots.

Children’s Safety Around the Pool

  • children should be supervised by a responsible adult at all times around the pool area.
