European apartments usually have several important differences compared with similar apartments in the United States.
Europeans, as a rule, don’t use window screens. In most places, but not all, there are fewer bugs than in the United States. In any event, most Europeans don’t like screens on their windows, period. Unless indicated otherwise, while your apartment may have every convenience, it will probably NOT have window screens.
Towels and linens are provided. A clean set is provided to you halfway through your 2-week stay. Maid service is not available in Untour apartments.
Reading lamps leave a lot to be desired all over Europe. We’re not quite sure why, but rather than try to reform the whole continent on behalf of our customers, we simply tell our customers: If you like to read in bed, you may want to bring a small battery-powered reading lamp like those sold in bookstores everywhere in the States.
Furnishings vary widely and according to the custom of each country. Most, but not all of our apartments are adjacent to, or near, the host’s home. Many of our apartments are furnished with family possessions, antiques, etc. This gives a very different feeling than a typical "vacation rental" property in the States, often warmer and more homey, with all the pluses and minuses that "warm and homey" imply.
All the accommodations are tastefully decorated with comfortable furniture with antiques scattered throughout the apartments in the Castle and Bohemian House vacation rentals. They are efficient and each one is unique and has its own kitchenette (some with full kitchens) with private bath with shower, bedroom and sitting area and some are much larger than others, and in that case there is a small supplement for that vacation rental.
