Booking, payment and cancellation policy rental accomodations
Reservations are considered confirmed when a deposit of 50% of the total is received within 14 days of initial booking. The total invoice needs to be paid in full six weeks prior to arrival. If your reservation is made within the required six weeks prior to arrival, then the total amount needs to be paid in full when you book in order to consider it confirmed. The method of payment is send to you by email.
In case of no show, earlier than planned departure or cancellation, payed deposits will not be refunded. Therefore it could be advisable to take a travel or cancellation insurance.
COVID guarantee for bookings in 2021
Because no one can predict what the situation around the COVID-19 virus will be in 2021, an additional guarantee applies if the booking has to be canceled in the following cases:
- There is a negative travel advice from the Foreign Affairs Department of the UK for the Coimbra region during the booked holiday period;
- Due to a measure of the Portuguese government the holiday must be canceled;
- If the trip turns out to be impossible on the planned travel date due to closed borders in the transit countries Belgium, France or Spain or in case of flight restrictions to Portugal.
If the holiday has to be canceled before arrival for one of these reasons, we will offer you the option to rebook the reservation. You may rebook once to another period at the then current rental rate and based on availability. This right to rebook may also be transferred to others.
If you cannot / do not want to rebook, we will refund 100% of the payments within 7 days.
Reservations of pitches on our campsite can be done by email or telephone. Depending on the length of your reservation and the season we can ask for a deposit of 50% to consider your reservation confirmed. All other payments can be done at arrival in cash or by card.
In dry summers Portugal is regularly confronted with wildfires. Therefore, open fire, barbecueing on charcoal and walking while smoking are strictly forbidden on our quinta in summer months or other periods of elevated risk. We demand that our detailed instructions to this subject are to be followed strictly without any discussion. Violators will be asked to leave the quinta imediately.
