Four Seasons Country Club offers you a choice of one and two bedroom apartments or two bedroom villas (townhouses).

The selection in the Country Club can be small in the most popular months, but our sales office offers members or potential buyers the opportunity to get on our waiting list. You will of course be informed if your request is successful.

Prices for buying weeks vary through the year. Membership is permanent, but it can be sold or inherited. Ownership of one or more weeks can be rented out or exchanged with other vacation spots worldwide as long as you are a member of Interval International, which is an exchange company. (Fees are charged for this).
