Tripping Sicily reserves the right to pursue any damage claim through the French Courts on behalf of the PO.
- WATER AND ELECTRICITY
Water shortages sometimes occur owing to long, dry periods and we ask you to be as sparing as possible. Although the water is drinkable, we advise visitors to drink bottled water. If too many electrical appliances are used at once, some properties will have limitations which can cut off the supply. Should this occur, guests are asked to reset the main switch which is usually located outside the property. Guests must ensure they are aware of the positioning of the meter (please ask the key holder). N.B. the voltage for electrical appliances in Italy is 220 volts.
Please note that electricity in Italy is expensive; the average cost per week is between €50 – €100, with smaller properties without air conditioning possibly less and full air conditioned larger villas paying more. We recommend that you turn off outdoor and indoor lighting when not in use. To keep charges down, use electricity wisely.
- INSECTS AND ANNOYANCES
Insects are attracted to light at night time. We advise visitors to bring necessary ointments against mosquito bites etc. Some specific areas are affected by ants; particular care has to be taken by visitors not to leave any traces of food on tables and floors. The PO do take care themselves to try and keep the ants and insects at bay but sometimes that is not possible, in which case insecticides will be provided if necessary. The PO and Tripping Sicily as their agent cannot be held responsible for something that is endemic and cannot be eradicated
