What and where to rent

  • Note that the seasonal rentals are different to the “Short-term rentals”.They are complementary to seasonal rentals and less affected by seasonality.
  • Important to know: When signing the short term rental contact, you have to be provided with the full description of the accommodation: the number of rooms, the surface area in square meters, and a list of the furnishings and appliances in the apartment. As well as the rental price, any additional fees, the length of the rental period, and the amount of the advance payment.
  • Main advantages is you can feel like at home while choosing the short term rental rather than the hotel accommodation.
  • No big deposit but the partial advance payment is requested when you rent the accommodation for a short time. But remember his payment can not exceed 25% of the total price for the rental and the real estate agent cannot  ask for it more than 6 months in advance.
  • About the payment: The balance of the price cannot be requested more than one month before you check into the apartment. Ideally, you pay the advance payment earlier and the actual price at the check in.
  • Think twice before booking the short term rental because if you cancel the reservation, you must pay the full price. In case when the owner terminates the contract, they may (may not) be required to pay damages.
