Booking conditions and Privacy Statement

Please take note of the Booking Conditions and Privacy Statement of Casa Lobera and Villa Azar, dated 24 May 2018 and updated 17 October 2018:

Booking conditions

Reservation and confirmation

A reservation can be done orally, by telephone, in writing, by email, through our website or through booking sites. After Casa Lobera's/Villa Azar's confirmation you are bound to make the down payment within a week. You are responsible for checking the correctness of the rental details in the booking confirmation. If you notice any error, you report it immediately to us. The booking is final at the time that you have made the down payment and Casa Lobera/Villa Azar has confirmed receipt to you. The party to whom the confirmation is addressed is wholly responsible for the entire amount of the reservation, and for the compliance of members of your party with these booking conditions. By issuing the down payment you confirm your consent to these booking conditions and once this payment has been received by Casa Lobera/Villa Azar the rental contract as well as the booking conditions become binding. Reservations cannot be accepted from persons younger than 18 years at the time of booking. Casa Lobera/Villa Azar reserves the right to refuse bookings without explanation.


The rates shown are in Euros (EUR) per accommodation per night including VAT, unless otherwise stated. If the VAT rate changes between the date of booking and the date of your stay, the tax legislation obliges to apply the tax rate at the time of the provision of services or tax increase, even in the case when the previous results in an increase of the final price that was communicated to the tenant at the time of the booking.
The rates shown include the use of water, electricity (except cost of air conditioning), TV, Wi-Fi, swimming pool (roughly May through October), washing machine, bed linen, kitchen linen and towels.
The additional cost for final cleaning is € 50 for Casa Lobera 2 (max. 4 persons), € 75 for Casa Lobera 3 and 4 (max. 6 persons) and € 100 for Villa Azar (max. 6 persons).
For additional amenities and options we refer you to the website of Casa Lobera (/bungalows-and-bb/the-bungalows-more-information/) and Villa Azar (www.villaazar.com/Layout-and-amenities).
The rates are subject to change. 

Terms of payment

The down payment amounts to 50% of the total outstanding amount, to be paid within 7 days of reservation. Your booking is final only when the down payment has been paid and Casa Lobera/Villa Azar has confirmed receipt to you.
The remainder of the outstanding amount is due to be paid 2 months prior to arrival.
If a booking is made within 2 months before arrival, the total outstanding amount has to be paid by return.
Failure to pay the balance (or total amount, as the case may be) on time will constitute cancellation, without refund of payments already made.


The deposit amounts to € 200 for a stay at Casa Lobera and € 300 for Villa Azar. After your departure we will check the accommodation and what this includes. If everything is in order, we will refund the deposit paid within up to a week into your bank account.

Alterations and cancellations by Casa Lobera/Villa Azar

In the unlikely event that it is necessary to make an alteration or to cancel the holiday accommodation, Casa Lobera/Villa Azar will inform you as soon as possible and, if requested, will try to arrange a suitable alternative. If the alternative holiday accommodation is not acceptable for you, we will refund in full all monies paid and shall be under no other liability.

Cancellation by you

Cancellations must be made by telephone and/or in writing (by email) to Casa Lobera/Villa Azar.
The cancellation is final at the time that Casa Lobera/Villa Azar has confirmed it to you.
The cancellation fees are:

  • Up to 2 months before the start of the rental period: 50% of the full amount.
  • From 2 months till 1 month before the start of the rental period: 75% of the full amount.
  • If cancelled later: the full amount.

If a deposit has been paid, it goes without saying that it will be refunded to you.
In case of a No Show, the total amount is due.
Arriving later than the check-in date or departing earlier than the check-out date does not give right on a refund of the rental amount.
Note: we advise you to arrange a travel and cancellation insurance!

Arrival and departure

The rented accommodation is available from 16.00 hrs. on the day that the rental period starts. For late check-ins from 23.00 hrs. at Villa Azar a fee of € 30 will be charged. (This does not apply for Casa Lobera as we live there).
The latest departure time on the last day of the rental period is 10.00 hrs.
Other times may be possible after consultation.

Number of people using the holiday accommodation

In the event that the maximum number is exceeded without prior agreement, Casa Lobera/Villa Azar reserves the right to refuse or revoke the booking at our sole discretion.
The accommodation must be used only by you as tenant and it is never allowed to sublet the accommodation or use it for purposes other than holiday accommodation.


Pets are not allowed without prior written permission.

Smoking/Open fire/Barbecue

Smoking is not allowed in the accommodation. You can smoke outside if you use an ashtray. Please do not walk with cigarette, cigar or pipe through the garden or the neighbouring nature reserve. Because of drought, there is great risk of fire. It is not allowed to burn incense, etc. in the accommodation. Open fire is strictly prohibited. Barbecuing on the 'open fire barbecue' is not allowed from the 1st of June till the 15th of October. The Spanish law prohibits this in order to avoid fire; there are large fines on violation of this law. Alternatively, on request and for a small fee of € 3 per day you can make use of our barbecue on gas at Casa Lobera. At Villa Azar the use of the grill on gas is included in the rental price. The BBQ/grill will be clean at the start and must be cleaned after use. If the BBQ/grill is not clean upon departure, € 30 will be charged.

Property cleaning

The accommodation will be thoroughly cleaned before the start of the rental period. The accommodation must be left clean (normal use) at the end of the rental period. Garbage needs to be cleaned up by you. Ash in the fire place is allowed to remain there because of the long afterglow.


The person to whom the booking confirmation has been sent, is wholly responsible for the correct and decent behaviour of all members of his/her party. Should you and/or your party behave in a manner deemed unsuitable by Casa Lobera/Villa Azar, we retain the right to request that you and your party vacate the accommodation.


During your stay you as a tenant are liable for the accommodation, the contents of it and all other things to include. Everything must be left in the same state as at the start of the rental period. In the case of damage you need to notify us immediately and compensate the cost of repair and/or replacement. In the case of loss of keys all resulting costs will be charged to the tenant. After your departure we will check the accommodation and all other things to include. We recommend that guests take out appropriate travel insurance that will cover damage/breakages in the rented accommodation.


Casa Lobera/Villa Azar shall not be responsible for the death, personal injury, damage, loss or theft of personal belongings of you or any person in your party due to staying in our accommodation or on the grounds of Casa Lobera/Villa Azar, unless this results from gross negligence or deliberate misconduct of the owners.
