We try to work with local delis to bring you the very best organic and free range, locally-procured or fairtrade produce. Everything else generally comes from recycled or sustainable sources (and our in-apartment cleaning products are all eco-friendly - not that we advise you to eat them..!).
The following are provided free of charge during your stay: fresh organic or locally sourced milk, freshly ground coffee for the Gaggia, Fairtrade teas and hot chocolate, oranges for the juicer, cereals for the morning plus basics such as salt, pepper, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
These bookable extras will be waiting in your apartment when you arrive. You can order them when you book.
