Be careful of this accomodation.

I made a booking back in April for 1st October for one night. I pre-paid €107 in advance as required and paid by Paypal. However, due to a change of plan (and camino) I emailed the property on 6th July to cancel my booking and to request a refund. The booking confirmation clearly states that cancellation without charge is only possible if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date. No response. I chased again by email. No reply.

As I had paid by Paypal I raised a dispute. Again no response. I escalated the claim a couple of days ago and again no response. Paypal requires a seller response by 24th July. I decided to be proactive and rang the property. After explaining who I was and why I was calling and asking when I was going to be refunded, the man hung up. I tried to call back in case the line had accidentally been interrupted (ever the optimist) but it went unanswered. I can now reasonably conclude that the property is deliberately refusing to refund me.

€107 is not a trifling sum and I was requesting cancellation within the terms and conditions of the booking.
I hope Paypal will take action of their own and proceed to refund me after the 24th July.

Hi, I'm starting on Sunday October 2nd from Lisbon. Flying in from Dublin, Ireland. Just wondering if there are any others starting then as I'm travelling on my own and would appreciate some...
We've made a spur of the moment decision to walk from Porto on the central route in the first week of October. Anyone walking at the moment? How busy is it and how is accommodation holding up...
Hallo, I lost my airpods on my camino Portugues between Porto and Santiago. Thought they were in my luggage but now at home and know I lost them. Somebody maybe found them? Thanks! Sita 🌷
