With the proper attention and help, the house staff will have enough time to carry out the daily light cleaning in the rooms and sanitary facilities without disturbing (this service is not available on Sundays), reinforcing that the organization and cleaning of the kitchen is the responsibility of the guest.

DIGITAL SLOWDOWN

FIREPLACE AND BARBECUE

Depending on the time of year, lighting the fireplace in the living room and the coziness of the available blankets will certainly make a difference. Notify the house staff if use of the barbecue and/or one of the fireplaces is intended. It should be noted that for fireplaces you should start with a small amount of wood and gradually increase and that for the barbecue, only charcoal should be used.

FIRE RISKS
