Just had 2 weeks in Cyprus. Villa with no water. Do we have right to compensation. Help?
The water was going off because of the drought in Cyprus The owner's tank was on the top of 2 storey villa so there was a problem with the pressure/pump.Tank did not hold enough water to cater for 6 people.Were told to take 1min showers per person per day by owner. Most villas now have tanks on the ground for extra. 4 other families had to use pool water to flush the loos.Good job we were a happy familyAnyone out there had the same problem. Thanks
