e.- Access to the property: During the stay, guests have exclusive use of the house. Nevertheless, guests must allow access to Villas Holidays staff or authorised personnel in order to clean the pool and the garden, as well as to repair or do any other work arising from any problem in the house during their stay.

Villas Holidays is responsible for the accommodation description to meet the general features stated, transcription mistake excepted, while the guest accepts that there could be some exceptional changes in the house,as a consequence of its use, such as electrical appliances, outdoors furniture or decoration items replaced periodically.
Villas Holidays is not responsible for any possible alterations that affect the house or its surroundingswhich cannot be controlled directly by Villas Holidays. In particular, the guest cannot claim any penalty in the case there were any of the following anomalies, as long as not foreseen by Villas Holidays.
1.- Internet/Wifi: Only available if clearly stated in the accommodation’s description. WIFI internet connection is a service provided by the company at no extra cost for tasks that do not consume a high amount of data. This service has not been considered in order to fix the booking price and for this reason it will not be possible to complain due to speed or connection problems.
Villas Holidays assumes no responsibility whatsoever for the continuous availability, speed, compatibility nor safety of the connection. Generally, the Internet/Wifi service is intended for holiday purposes, that is, it is not for commercial or similar use. Any excessive download will cause the router to stop working. If the guest needs more data, these can be contracted upon an extra cost. Please ask the booking department.
2.- Satellite/Cable TV:Where descriptions refer to satellite TV or cable TV, it does not automatically mean that reception includes all stations. The mostly foreign owners have decoders that are not always suitable for receiving all international programs.
3.- Water and electricity:Exceptionally, there might be interruptions to water and electricity supplies due to the area’s increase in population, especially during peak season. Neither Villas Holidays nor the house owner can be held liable for any inconvenience or damage incurred through such circumstances.
4.- Construction work: The rental accommodations are usually private properties that belong to individual owners and are typically located in large residential districts. The accommodations are usually not located in holiday parks, so construction work may occasionally occur nearby. This work may be carried out by home owners or contractors and / or public institutions, with whom Villas Holidays has no relationship whatsoever and over whom we cannot exert any control. Neither the Accommodation provider, nor the Booking agent, nor Landlord can be held liable for inconvenience caused by any construction work not commissioned by the Accommodation provider.
5.- Damagesand theft:Neither Villas Holidays nor the accommodation owner can be held liable for damages (injury, illness, death, material damages or theft) caused to the guests during their stay. By booking, the guest assumes responsibility for the safety related to his/her own person and belongings and does not held liable Villas Holidays nor the house owner for any responsibility over them. To minimize potential risks, we kindly ask to make a reasonable use of both kitchen and pool, since they are house areas with additional risks for the guest, as well as locking the doors and closing the windows properly when the property is unoccupied. These guidelines are strongly recommended when the guests include children and elderly people.
13.- JURISDICTION AND LAW
Notwithstanding the legal rules governing the jurisdiction of the civil courts, any dispute arising between supplier and principal or client will be resolved by a court of law with jurisdiction in the country and region where the Landlord is established. For one month after the Landlord has invoked this provision in writing, the Tenant will have the right to opt for resolution of the dispute by a civil court with jurisdiction at law or under international treaty.
