Second home and holiday home owners used to be able to claim discounts in their council tax in the United Kingdom, as the property is vacant for much of the year. This is no longer true in many areas, including Carmarthenshire; if the property is empty (but furnished) no discount is permitted and the owner will be liable to pay the tax in full.[12] But, In Cornwall, since 2004 second home owners can claim a 10% discount in their council tax.[5] Prior to 2004, they could claim a 50% discount in Cornwall,[13] they are still able to claim 50% in many other areas in England.[6] The Welsh movement, Cymuned, promote the principle that owners of holiday homes should pay double the standard rate of council tax, as they do not otherwise invest in the local community.[14] Testimony of this is to be seen in a report on the effect of holiday homes in Scotland, which found that those who went on holiday to Scotland spent an average of £57 a day, in comparison to just £32 a day spent by those visiting their holiday or second homes.[4]

Some people have posted horrible pictures on this yelp review site, but I have never had any issues with the quality of food here, and my mom liked everything and she knows how to cook and had a built in Wok at her last house having taken classes in Chinese cooking.  It seems a lot of people get To-go orders from here I guess they are freaked out by the mostly empty place, I am sure more will come back once Bell-Air is done with construction.

Holiday homes and second homes comprise 14% of the housing stock in Snowdonia, Wales, compared to the figure of 1% for the whole of Wales.[3] Only in Gwynedd has the council put in place measures to control the number of holiday homes. But they only control new developments, by withholding permission where consent is likely to raise the figure in any community above 10%, they do not stop anyone from buying a holiday home.[4]

The next time, my takeout order was for three dishes at $5.99 each; my calculator told me the bill as presented came to a little more than 10% over $17.97 ($5.99 dishes x 3.)  When I questioned the total bill, the cashier told me it was $17.97 for the food plus tax.  I told him that would make the sales tax over 10%; he told me he charged just what the "bossey" (his term) said to charge.  I reminded him that sales tax in Sacramento is not 10%.  I wrote down the math for him, applying the going sales tax rate and told him the bill was 60 cents more than it should be.  He then said there is a 10 cent charge per takeout container.  I said ok, then I'll pay the bill, less 30 cents, to which he agreed.
Absolutely stunning views from the Hamlet! Lovely location at the end of a quiet street in a village away from the tourist crowd but we could still easily drive to all the attractions on Gozo within 15 minutes. There are several beautiful hikes that are accessible directly from the Hamlet. Our family of six stayed in Hamlet 3 which was very spacious and well equipped. The indoor pool was well used on the cooler days. The staff at Baron Holiday Homes were very responsive in answering all our questions and concerns. Excellent service from beginning to end. Highly recommended!
