PSV is an escape from your normal life and is something very special. Your cottage will not have the usual telecommunication equipment. You make any requests for meals, coffee, rides or a picnic lunch by using the flagpole signaling system. The flagpole is outside the cottage. If you have a request, you write it up on a note, insert it into the box and raise the yellow flag. Someone will be by shortly to fulfill you request.

Each cottage is connected to the main dinning room with a short walk. So if you want to have meals in your cottage, on the beach or in the dinning room; you will not be disappointed.
