Cook Service

At many villas, it is possible to request the services of a cook and it is necassary to book well in advance to secure the cook service. Local cooks are rarely trained to professional standards and may range from the villa maid doubling up, to good local cooks. Cooking usually consists of simple traditional food, either prepared in the villa or brought from home. Usually they will prepare one main meal a day, and either stay and assist with laying/clearing up, or leave it depending on time and family commitments, charging the appropriate hourly rate. In some areas a catering delivery service of prepared meals is available, and is ideal for those who wish to entertain a few times during their holiday. Please ask your Travel Expert for further details.

Note: Once booked, it is not possible to cancel the services of the cook, who may have turned down alternative employment. Local cooks can also be unreliable or become ill, and as CV Villas offers contact with the cooks purely as a service to our clients we cannot accept responsibility if a cook becomes unavailable or is considered unsuitable. If a booking is conditional upon a cook being provided, clients should make their own arrangements, to include travel, accommodation and transport

transfers

We are delighted to help arrange transfers through local companies, from the airport of arrival to your villa or hotel. As many of our properties are off-the-beaten-track the prices indicated should be used as a guideline and an exact quote (and vehicle suitability) will be advised before travel. Transfers are available on request only, at an extra charge payable directly to the driver in local currency. If you would prefer this option, please speak to one of our experienced consultants who will be able to discuss your needs in more detail.
