Should you choose to stay at a location with on-site amenities, the available on-site facilities are usually included in your monthly rental:
Some of our preferred locations have spectacular outdoor pools (not heated in the winter) and others also have an indoor heated pool. Poolside furniture is available at no extra cost, and complementary towels and gowns are available at some locations. As an alternative, we are happy to recommend the closest municipal facility, which typically is modern and very inexpensive.
Full size hard or synthetic courts can be found at some locations. As an alternative, we are happy to recommend a local tennis club.
Several locations have fully equipped gyms and free access to sauna, Jacuzzi, or Turkish bath.
Just as important as being active, the carefully maintained gardens in many locations offer moments of tranquillity and places of rest and introspection.
Often acting as a point of contact with residents and clients, reception staff at these locations can assist with any on-site requirements and often provide local information. Usually manned for longer in the summer, reception staff also provide an element of comfort that someone will be available to assist in case of need. Further, for longer stays, some locations are able to provide additional services such as receiving mail.
Although many of these preferred locations are situated close to a range of amenities, some also have the benefit of an on-site restaurant. This is useful for those who do not wish to walk far for a meal, for a break from cooking or to invite friends and guests for a meal or drink.
