Rubbish is collected daily from the large roadside containers strategically placed throughout the area. Removal of rubbish from the property is not part of the maid service. Please ensure you dispose of rubbish on a daily basis. Your nearest rubbish container is located by the gate. Rubbish is collected by Vale do Lobo.

During your stay the garden will have to be maintained. The gardener may start work as early as 8 a.m. and normally visits once per week. The lawn is watered by an automatic irrigation system. The times of operation may vary and normally last for approx. 1 hour. Garden furniture is generally kept in the pool area and cushions stored inside the cupboard with the wooden top in the patio. Please feel free to arrange these as you wish. If you see that it is too windy, please close the sun umbrellas to avoid them of getting broken.
The pool is fresh water treated with chlorine and is cleaned once per week. As with the gardener, the pool contractor may start work as early as 8.00 a.m. and cleaning should take approx. 20 minutes. There is a pool net available to you for removing leaves.
Pool heating - See ‘Pool Heating Guidelines’ below for further information The pool can be heated and is equipped with pool cover. To maintain heat the pool cover should always be in place when the pool is not in use. The weekly supplement payable for this facility is £110. Pool heating must be turned on 3 days prior to required to reach the desired temperature. As the expense of heating a pool is incurred during those first few days, the minimum charge for this facility will always be £110. Adverse weather conditions and lack of pool cover or use thereof will obviously affect the temperature of the pool. Refunds will not be given for this facility irrespective of weather conditions or temperature reached.

Pool heating - guidelines
The following information is intended to offer help and advice when considering or deciding to have the pool at your villa heated.
Q: What about weather conditions? A: The weather obviously has a profound effect on the temperature of the pool and clients should be aware that heavy rain can often nullify the effects of pool heating. Also it is unrealistic to expect the pool heating to warm the water more that 8ºC above the average air temperature. Therefore if the average air temperature is say 12ºc then the pool temperature is unlikely to reach a comfortable temperature.
Q: Is pool heating effective all year round? A: Owners of properties usually install pool heating to extend the use of the pool from June/Sep to include Apr/May/Oct. Between November and March the normal pool heating equipment might not be adequate to heat the pool to a comfortable temperature. Therefore paying a pool heating supplement at this time may not prove value for money.
Q: What if the client pays the pool heating supplement, but the weather is so bad he does not wish to use the pool? A: The expense of heating a pool is incurred in the first couple of days therefore the client will not receive a refund irrespective of the weather and what temperature the pool reaches.
Q: What if the pool cover is left off at night? A: This will obviously effect the temperature of the pool and the effectiveness of any pool heating. If the cover is left off, no complaints regarding the effectiveness of the pool heating and the temperature of the pool will be entertained. Not all pools come with a cover so please check at the time of booking.
Q: What if the pool heating system fails during the client´s stay? A: If the client has pre-paid the pool heating supplement and the heating system fails the client will be awarded a pro-rata refund provided we are informed of the failure at that time.
