Coronavirus update

WE ARE TAKING BOOKINGS FOR 2021 and 2022

Due to future guidance we may receive from local or national government and health advisers, we may cancel your stay. In those cases you would receive a full refund or credit towards another booking with us.

Stay home, keep others safe!

If you do not believe in following all the Covid rules and restrictions, please do not book this cottage.

You must be registered for track and trace - we have our own QR code in the cottage.

We accept bookings only if all of the guests in the group come from one household not exceeding 4 including infants. All adults over 16 will be required to provide their name and address details and/OR scan our NHS QR code on first entry to the cottage. Extra visitors or guests are not allowed under any circumstances. You must state at the time of booking how many guests there will be and their names. It will not be possible to add guests later. If you book for two guests then ONLY those two guests may enter the property.

We also ask that guests do not put themselves at risk and therefore those guests which arrive after their departure. Face masks should be worn over nose and mouth at all times outside of both your home and ours. Avoid crowded places and take home all your litter from the beach or other places of interest.

We understand that booking a holiday may be a difficult decision for many due to the restrictions of cancellation policies. Please take out a suitable insurance policy before you book. We are offering all new direct bookings (effected by lockdown rules or contracting Covid-19) the flexibility to change their bookings at anytime up to one week before check-in without further charge, or a credit towards a future booking taken within 18 months of cancellation. Our agent's will have their own booking terms.

Our cottage will undergo full sanitization at the end of each stay, however we ask that guests now remove all bedding, towels, bath mats, oven gloves etc and place them in a tied sack at the end of their stay prior to departure. You no longer have to sort the recycling as our waste management company does that for you. So ALL waste now goes into the same dustbin sack, including part-used hand soaps, and tied securely. This will help reduce the risk to our staff and next guests.

Thank you and happy holidays!

Holiday essentials

We added the luxury of a Villavent heat recovery system in the cottage which aims to meet targets of low energy consumption but also importantly keeps the home fresh and dry removing condensation and dust, ideal for those whose may have an allergy such as asthma. The system uses filters which are cleaned or replaced twice a year through which all incoming air and recycled air passes through. It automatically detects when there is steam in the bathroom and the Kitchen and continues to replenish the air until all damp has cleared. The renewed air, combined with fresh outdoor air, is then fed back into the double and twin bedroom. No more persistent condensation on the windows or steamy mirrors!

Villavent Heat Recovery System Sorgente Holiday Cottage

In the bedrooms you may notice the air flow only when someone uses the bathroom or kitchen. It automatically goes into high mode for a short time to clear the damp air. You can rest assured that it is clean healthy air which is circulated 24 hours a day, no need to sleep with the windows open anymore!

We also minimize our guests exposure to allergens by reducing use of carpets or other furnishings that gather dust, having a no-pets, no-smoking policy. Due to the heat recovery system, windows do not need to be opened for the flow of fresh air and this is especially important at times of high pollen count. The vacuum cleaner provided also uses a HEPA filter and of course the property is meticulously cleaned between bookings.

Are you asthmatic or suffer from allergies? Please let us know if your experience at Sorgente has been a good one or you feel there is more that could be done to make staying here more comfortable.

Sorgente comments 2017

"A most enjoyable stay at Sorgente, definitely something a bit different! A lot of thought has gone into the design layout of the cottage and it's environmental imprint. The information graphics were very helpful and easy to understand. The fresh cut flowers were very welcoming, a big thank you to Alex and family."
