Un océano de paz en el Sistema Ibérico

FAQs

The following are the most common questions which we receive from customers, and our answers and solutions:

How shall we pay? Once agreed,  the customers phone/email us with their details and we send them our bank international (IBAN) number (or Paypal account) where the down payment of 25% can be paid. The remaining money is paid directly to the owners when entering the house.
Do you charge VAT? No. Home rentals in Aragón under the selfcatering system aren't charged VAT as we don't offer other services (restaurant, cleaning, ...)
Is down payment reimbursed if we change our mind after paying it? No. We don't reimburse down payments. However,  if clients decide they won't come in the period they booked, we keep the deposit for 12 months for them  to choose another alternative booking here, for which the initial down payment is equally valid. That way  they don't waste their money.
Do you ask for a deposit? Yes, we always charge 100€ deposit in the beginning. If everything is right we reimburse it when leaving the premises.
How many people can fit in the house? The standard capacity is 10 people in House "El Molino" and 4 people in Loft "El Granero". If more places are needed, there's the option of 4 more places in the house (2 sofa-beds in the lounge) and 2 more in the loft (1 sofa-bed). Each person extra pays 50€ for over-occupancy.
