17) RESPONSIBILITY - The Property Owner is not responsible for any physical injuries caused to the Clients or any member of Client’s party during their stay at the property. It is, therefore, highly recommended that the Clients purchase comprehensive travel insurance prior to their trip. The property offered is a private home, not an official tourist structure or hotel. Being such, the home does not have standards or categories recognized internationally, but instead reflect in the architecture and furnishings of the local traditions and personal taste of the Property Owner. We expressly point out that the facilities, swimming pool (not gated) and grounds are to be used at your own risk and children must be warned and supervised during their stay. Clients must accept differences in the property, be they architectural or cultural, relative to their own homes. Any real deficiencies or problems in the property must be communicated directly to the Property Owner or his/her representative prior to the Client's departure from the property. Telephone and fax numbers of the Property Owner or his/her representative are located in the Property Voucher, provided after the final payment has been received. Complaints issued following the Client's return will not be considered, nor will give rise to any indemnity.

18) PROPERTY OWNER’S DISCLAIMER - The Property Owner does not accept any liability for any loss, damage, or additional expenses incurred by the client or any member of the client’s party regardless of the cause. The Property Owner does not accept liability for any injury, death, loss, inconvenience or damage, alteration, delay or cancellation of the booking as a result of war, threat of war, riot or civil strife, terrorist activity (threatened or actual), natural disaster, fire, sickness, weather conditions, action at an airport or port by any government or public authority, technical problems relating to transport and airport regulations caused by technical, mechanical or electrical breakdowns or with the client’s accommodation or other circumstances as amounting to ‘force majeure’ or Acts of God or other similar events beyond the Property Owner’s control.

19) JURISDICTION - In the event of controversy arising from the booking and property rental, only the Italian law and courts of Arezzo will preside. By signing the booking form and confirming the booking, the customer implies that the Rental Conditions have been understood and have thereby been accepted without reserve and without exception. If any of the conditions of this contract have become invalid or were invalid or if in this contract there should be a gap, the other conditions cannot be contested.
