Flexible check in/out upon availability: most of the times you could do early check in or late check out (namely before/after 1p.m.). However please check with us whether there are other reservations for that date that would require you to check in/out at 1 p.m.
If the outdoor pool is getting drained for cleaning which they do once a week during weekdays (for example on Tuesday or Wednesday) the one indoors would be running. Also use the hot healing water inside the apartment at the tube!
If you wonder why the price is so inexpensive, the answer is that the apartment is bought to bring joy and happiness. We cannot visit it that often so we want to share it with others. Usually at least three out of four weekends the place is occupied.
