Other things to Bring

Beach towel, walking shoes or sandals, sun cream, insect repellant. (Sheets and towels provided)

Plugs

Spain has 2-pin plugs, so you will need to bring an adaptor. There are power outlets in all the accommodation.

Special Diets

It is possible to cater for people with food allergies or intolerances, although we may not be able to provide dairy or wheat substitutes, we can offer alternatives.

We suggest bringing gluten free bread or snacks, or any other specialities with you if you think you’ll need them. The accommodation has kitchens, so you can store any items in the fridge. The diet is vegetarian by default, but we offer fish, chicken or meat once or twice during the week if requested.

If you have an allergy to a particular ingredient, let us know, and a separate dish can be made for you. However, if you have a severe reaction to an allergen, in which a very small amount i.e. on a kitchen knife or surface can trigger a reaction, we cannot guarantee to be free of cross contamination. Also if you have a long list of things you can’t eat, it may not be possible to cater for you.
