Don’t leave bin bags outside, they attract animals.

You have one set of house keys and a buzzer. The top button of the buzzer opens the upper gate. The lower gate is not electric. The lower gate is best when you leave at the end of your stay, see below. Lost keys cost €10 each. The buzzer is a high-security version and a technician has to visit to reset the system if it is lost or broken: cost €140.
Very important: Don’t go in the plant zone! Please explain to small children that it can damage the plants and cause a big mess. The swimming zone is separated from the plants by a low wall, so you’re swimming in crystal clear water. The water is from our natural well. The water in the swimming zone is filtered by a modern saline-electrolysis system with UV. It is 2 metres at the deep end. There is no fence around the pool. Children must be supervised by adults at all times.
- Use bags of charcoal only please.
- The law says, you must keep the water hose connected, as a fire precaution.
- Don’t throw ashes away in the garden, they could be hot. Put the fire out with the hose when you have finished.
Tools are in the drawer under the microwave. You can use our coals and fire lighters but please replace them. Smoking is ok by the barbecue, but not on the terrace near the house, please.
Except for coals on the barbecue, fires and fireworks are illegal from 15 March to 15 October. Extra restrictions may apply.
If you see a forest fire or smoke on the horizon, stay calm, phone us and we will check with the local police. If you are worried, close all windows and doors, then drive to Cassa de la Selva. Phone us as soon as you can.
