Respecting and preserving the environment is everyone’s business. Turn off the lights when you are not in the rooms, do not turn up the heating, the flat is well insulated.
The cupboard in the downstairs room is private and locked. Do not try to open it.
We hope you have lots of laughs and fun during your stay! However, we would appreciate it if you could be careful and keep the noise to a minimum out of respect for the neighbours and the condominium.
Like our holiday rental, our neighborhood is important to us.
The other residents of the building live here full time.
Please be respectful of the community and try to keep the noise level as low as possible, especially after dark. Respecting the people and property around you will make your holiday and stay more enjoyable.
Please avoid making noise between 11pm and 8am to allow neighbours to sleep peacefully.

In the event of a dispute or complaint from a neighbour, it is your duty to inform us as soon as reasonably possible.
We try to make our holiday accommodation as child-friendly as possible.
That said, parents still have the ultimate responsibility to ensure the safety of their children at all times.
