European apartments, as a rule, 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 half way through your two week stay. Untourists staying in Prague for a week will receive towels and linens at the beginning of their 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 US.
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 US…often warmer and more homey, with all the pluses and minuses that "warm and homey" imply.
Our vacations rentals are in the heart of Old Town Nafplio, a unique destination on the Peloponnese Peninsula, situated on the blue waters of the Argolic Gulf that flows into the Aegean Sea. The apartments are a few minutes walk from a lovely promenade right by the water, and right by one of the many Greek restaurants.
