I think the "no services" rule also applies to the "soft licence" category if my memory serves me right. I haven't checked, so I may be wrong.
I correct you Andrew, that is not the case with the 'soft' licence !

The law states that you may not provide ANY services at all except bed linen. There is no mention of what constitutes a service. I suspect a lawyer or accountant has interpreted here. And I would further guess that you are only precluded from providing aircon or wifi if you charge separately for them. (This might be a way of filtering out hotels etc.) I can't see how even EOT would expect you to disable or remove aircon and wifi from your property.
I wasn't even aware this was on the site pages, so thank you, I will check. I think it was quoted from Atsalakis accountants who send updates for my website from time to time. I don't spend much time from April - October correcting and updating the website due to work commitments.
An EOT licence is still officially required to rent a property to a tour operator - this is what I was told by EOT in Heraklion a few months ago.
