Such events may include war or threat of war, civil strife, natural or nuclear disaster, industrial dispute, terrorist activity, fire, adverse weather conditions, unforeseen local building/roadwork's, unavoidable technical problems with transport and all similar circumstances beyond our control. Please see 'Holiday Insurance.' Whilst we do not exclude or limit our liability for loss or damage sustained by clients as a result of negligence by our employees or agents, this cannot extend to actions/omissions by the property owner over whom we have no direct control. Nevertheless, we will offer all reasonable assistance in the settlement of any dispute which may arise.
Whilst we endeavour to make sure that you enjoy your Villa holiday, sometimes things go wrong. If you have a problem or query during your holiday, please bring it to the attention of our Management 0044 (0) 7929208845 immediately so that they have an opportunity to put it right at the time.

The company does not accept any responsibility for items of furniture, etc. which appear in photographs but may have been changed or removed, nor for any changes to aspects or views since photographs were taken or descriptions compiled.
Our Commitment to You
We plan our Villa portfolio months in advance and occasionally properties are withdrawn for reasons beyond our control or circumstances make them unavailable/unsuitable for rental. Fortunately this is a very rare occurrence but we will advise you as soon as possible and always endeavour to offer an alternative property of an equal or higher standard if we are forced to make changes to your holiday plans due to circumstances outside our control.
Any resulting disturbance from sites close to any properties featured in our programme may occur at any time during the year. Some resorts are continuing their development and local works may be taking place or may be planned. Where we are aware in advance that such works are likely to occur during your holiday and may in our opinion significantly affect your enjoyment, we will advise you. We will endeavour to offer you alternative villa accommodation (with you paying or receiving a refund in respect of any price difference) or if we are unable to offer you similar accommodation, we will refund all monies paid for your villa/apartment (excluding insurance premiums and any amendment charges or any ancillary costs such as flights or car-hire). Ultimate Santorini has no control over building work and, due to its often intermittent nature, is not always aware when it may commence. Should building work commence during your stay, we regret we cannot accept any responsibility or liability.
Most of our properties enjoy private swimming pools/Jacuzzi. Please take great care by the pool area, especially if under the influence of alcohol, as accidents may and sometimes do occur. We recommend that you do not dive into the swimming pool or use while under the influence of alcohol. Children must be supervised in the swimming pool area at all times. Pool heating, (where available) must be requested at time of booking: this will be subject to an additional charge payable locally to our management company. Failure to pay in resort will result in a deduction from your key deposit.
In order to process your booking and to ensure that your travel arrangements run smoothly and meet your requirements we need to use the information you provide such as name, address, and any special needs/dietary requirements etc.
We take full responsibility for ensuring that proper security measures are in place to protect your information. We must pass the information on to the relevant suppliers of your travel arrangements such as your tour operator, airlines, hotels, transport companies etc. The information may also be provided to security or credit checking companies, public authorities such as customs/immigration if required by them, or as required by law.
Additionally, where your holiday is outside the European Economic Area (EEA), controls on data protection in your destination may not be as strong as the legal requirements in this country. We will not however, pass any information onto any person not responsible for part of your travel arrangements. This applies to any sensitive information that you give to us such as details of any disabilities, or dietary/religious requirements. (If we cannot pass

Health and Safety
Our guests health and safety is a priority & we work very hard to ensure that a high level of safety is always maintained. It is important to remember however, that many of our villas and mansions are buildings of character, and whilst they meet all local safety requirements, these may differ from those we enjoy in the UK. We ask you to familiarise yourself with the property on arrival, particularly when traveling with children and infants. Please raise any concerns you may have with our concierge/management in resort.
Ants, Mosquitoes and Other Unwanted Insects
As in all countries which enjoy warm sunny climates; you may at certain times of the year experience problems with insects particularly with ants and mosquitoes. Ants - It is advisable that food or crumbs are not left out either in kitchens or on terraces/balconies as this attracts ants and/or other unwanted insects. In some rural areas, you are expected to "drop off" your own rubbish at dustbins usually situated close by. Please ensure rubbish is disposed of quickly without causing any build up which may attract insects. Mosquitoes are also prevalent at certain times of the year and you may need to take suitable precautions especially in the evenings and during the night.
