House rules

Showing you the ropes at Villa Azar

No smoking
Smoking is NOT allowed inside. If you smoke outside, please use an ashtray. Do not throw butts on the terrace, the garden or anywhere else, also with regard to fire hazards.

We strongly request you NOT to flush down toilet paper in order to reduce the risk of clogging the narrow drain. Please deposit the used toilet paper in the waste bin next to the toilet. If the toilet becomes clogged due to your negligence, the cost of repair will be for you.

Water can be scarce during summer. Generally we have enough water in the reserve tank but in times of extreme drought the supply of water can be stopped. Therefore we kindly request you to be economical of the use of water.

The tap water is drinkable. However, we advise you to filter the tap water first by using the water filter jug due to the large amount of calcium in the water. Please also use filtered tap water for the kettle and the coffeemaker for the preservation of the appliances.

WiFi is for free. Network: Villa Azar. Password: 3CdCF3dD0738

To turn on the TV use the middle button at top of the silver control. To navigate between channels use Pr + or - on the centre circle of the black control. Volume is best adjusted using + or - on the left hand side of the black control.

In total there are 200 international channels. These are available for free.

The gas grill can be used all year round. It is NOT allowed to use the open fire BBQ and pizza oven (at the end of the garden) from 1 June to 15 October. This is a law in Spain in order to prevent forest fires. There are heavy fines if you ignore this law and we will hold you responsible for the costs and damages that result from this.

In the case of use of the open fire BBQ and/or pizza oven: due to the long afterglow of the charcoal you can leave the ash residue, but please clean the grid of the BBQ and the pizza scoop.

The BBQ as well as the gas grill are clean at the start and should be cleaned after use. If we have to clean it we will charge € 30 for each item used.

Swimming pool
Use of the swimming pool is completely at your own risk. Keep an eye on the children please. Children without swimming certificate are only allowed to the pool under the supervision of adults. Diving in the swimming pool is not allowed. Cleaning and maintenance of the swimming pool will be done once or twice a week. Please do NOT use suntan OIL because it has a very bad effect on the quality of the pool water.

If you go out, please fold the parasol and put the garden cushions inside. Sometimes unexpectedly the wind is getting stronger!     

The garbage should be taken out by yourself regularly. It can be deposited either in the container at the end of the dirt road or in the containers at the roundabout at the entrance of the village of Canillas de Aceituno. The yellow container is for plastic packaging, the green container for glass, the blue container for cardboard and paper and the grey/beige containers for residual waste.

If something damages (either a coffee cup, a technical item or anything else) please let us know immediately! So we can take care of replacing or reparing it.

Alarm system and camera
Villa Azar has an alarm system. We will explain how it works. Important: when leaving the house all doors and windows (except for the bathroom window on the ground floor) need to be closed! 

Outdoor balcony lighting
The switch for the outside lighting at the backside of the balcony is located in the kitchen, near the window.

Garden maintenance
Garden maintenance will be done on Monday from 8 and 9 a.m. In Summer from 7 till 8 a.m.

The departure time is 10.00 a.m. (or later after consultation). The house should be left free of garbage and the dish washer must be cleared. If we have to do this we will charge € 50 for the extra work.
