How to find a reliable villa rental? Quick help needed!
We have been in process of renting a villa in Catalonia, Spain. We have browsed through several sites such as Holidaylettings, Rentavilla, Universal Holiday Centre etc.
The problem is now that all those sites only pass your request to the villa owner or company so how are we to know which one is for real and which one is a fraud as we have no prior experience in renting a holiday villa?
If a villa owner wants the payment in bank transfer, not by credit card, is that a bad sign?
Does anyone have any experience in rental company called Calafat Retreats, addressed in Antwerpen, Belgium? That company does have their villas listed in several sites mentioned below and have their own web pages as well.
We would be very greatful in any information, experience or tips anyone could provide!
