Please keep the facilities clean especially the kitchen and toilets. Put all the garbage in designated container and keep the ground clear of litter (see the house folder).

Notice that cleaning daily/weekly is not included.
Do not throw anything else than toilet paper on the toilets. If plumber is needed to open the drains, charge will be from 100€ up. If toilet is not working/out of order, please use another one in the first floor near the garage door. Please keep the doors and windows open after taking a shower/bath to prevent humidity damages.
If you burn candles, do not leave them unattended and always make sure you extinguish the candle. Avoid unnecessarily running water and washing incompelte dishes on the dishwasher or incomplete laundry on the washing machine. Electricity is expensive on Portugal and a Villa as big as ours has a huge electricity bills. We wish not to charge any extra on the electricity, that’s why we kindly ask you to keep in mind to use all the electronics in sustainable way.
