- Even in Tuscany construction is in progress. It may happen, that construction works, will start at relatively short notice. This applies for private owners, as well as for public builders. Neither the owner, nor we, can influence such works. We strive however, to prevent inconveniences of this type.

Should one of these travel conditions be or become invalid, ineffective or incomplete, the legal effectiveness of the other clauses remain unaffected by this fact. Instead of the invalid regulation a valid regulation which resembles the economic purpose and the intention of the invalid regulation has to come into effect.

12. Additional notes
the apartments and vacancy homes are in private ownership and are individually furnished. Furnishings and outfits are in accordance with local standards. Photographs of respective properties are, especially in case of big resorts, to be seen as example and do not in any case, show the booked apartment or room.
The landlord shall be responsible for proper handover of the rental property.

Handover of the vacation object to the respective tenant takes place on times mentioned in the route directions (changes only possible after previous arrangement).

Free Wi-Fi means that you may surf at no additional cost in the network, receive mails and may post it on Facebook. It does not mean to watch movies or TV broadcasts or perform more Downloads.

Most houses and apartments provide adapter for German plugs. To be on the safe side, it is advisable, to bring one yourself or to buy one on site for little money.
Heating systems in Italy cannot be compared with German heating systems. Apartments and houses can, especially in the cold season, because of the local climate, be humid.
In Italy with "SAT-TV" in most cases Eutelsat i.e. Hotbird is to be understood, which receive few or no German TV Stations. Should you wish to receive sendings via "Astra", it is recommended to ask about the availability.

Italian houses are not constructed as German houses. They often lack heat and impact sound insulation. Bad sound proof can be referred to as "customary".
Actually a banal topic, but following several complaints, this note:
Please bear in mind that in Italy usually Italian is spoken. It may happen that some of the landlords speak other languages e. g. German, French or English, if only rudimentary. "German spoken" is therefore not valid everywhere.
If linguistic issues arise we can assist you in urgent cases by phone.
