Interaction with guests
On arrival guests are welcomed to the property by my father Nino, the owner of Villa Aurora. He is local and has fluent English and good conversational French. He will be waiting for you as you arrive and show you to the apartment, give you your keys, show you round and answer any questions you may have. Nino has lots of great tips and recommendations and will gladly help you with anything you may need. Nino lives on the ground floor of Villa Aurora so if guests need anything during the holiday he can be easily reached. He can also assist with booking transfers. In the apartment guests have a comprehensive information booklet with details regarding the apartment, the area and host contact details.
