ALTERATIONS AND CANCELLATIONS BY PEACEFUL VILLAS
Though it is unlikely that Peaceful Villas will have to make any changes to confirmed arrangements, it does occasionally happen and we will advise you at the earliest possible date. If for any reason beyond our control we are unable to provide you with the Villa, Peaceful Villas reserve the right to cancel the reservation. For example but not inclusive if the property is damaged or rendered un-usable Peaceful Villas will endeavour to locate an alternative property for the period required but no guarantee is given that this can be done. However if this is not possible or you do not wish to be transferred, Peaceful Villas will cancel the booking and refund in full, less any bank transfer charges. Peaceful Villas shall not be liable for any further obligations or claims by the client.

Only those persons stipulated on the booking may reside at the property as guests. Please notify us as soon as possible of any changes. The number of people staying at the property must not exceed the maximum capacity indicated in the website or elsewhere, except in the case of infants (under two years old), or unless specifically authorised. Should the owner or the local representative find that the number of people staying at the property exceeds that on the booking form, he may at the absolute discretion of Peaceful Villas, ask the extra person or persons to vacate the property immediately. No camping is permitted in the property grounds. Peaceful Villas regrets that no pets are allowed on the entire property.
