Tap water is normally safe to drink. At peak times there may be pressure drops, which can result in the water heater not working.  At times there can be occasional water cuts for limited periods.

Bottled water is widely available.  Agua con gas = sparkling water   Agua sin gas = still water

Electricity

The voltage in Portugal is the same as for the rest of Europe: 220 volts.  Plugs are 2-pin round.

Swimming Pool & Pool Safety

When you arrive at the property please take time to become familiar with the pool and outside area.

If using suntan oil, please shower before using the pool to avoid oils blocking the filtration system.

Safety: Please always remember that swimming pools represent a potential danger, especially for children, and to ensure that children are never left unattended in or near the pool area.


Insects

All insects, particularly ants, flies and beetles are attracted to all things sweet.  To avoid problems, it is advisable to keep sweet things like jam and soft drinks in the fridge, clean up floor spills, discard deteriorating pieces of fruit, and put into the dishwasher or hand wash.  Insecticides are widely available in supermarkets.  Please contact the property manager if you need help.

Ants = formigas   Wasp = vespa   Bee = abelia    Fly is mosca   Mosquito = mosquito


Wi Fi

Most properties have Wi Fi nowadays.  The signal in the area is good, but it can break down at times especially during the peak holiday period which coincides with heavy Wi Fi usage in the area.  Wi Fi connection details for each property are in the information folder in the individual properties.


Smoking

There is a no-smoking policy in the properties and smokers are asked to smoke outside the building.  This is in accordance with the public policies in most other European countries.
