Scent of Sorrento sources their properties via owners. As much of our accommodation is of an authentic and localised style then some of our arrangements with owners are of quite an informal nature. The purpose of these guidelines is to advise you of the Booking Conditions that are considered very much ‘standard’ within the self-catering accommodation industry in Europe and apply to your booking.
All accommodation costs, once paid are non-refundable.
It is condition of your booking that you have taken out a quality comprehensive Travel Insurance policy to cover unforeseen circumstances.
Additional overnight guests, over and above the number you have booked for, can not arrive unexpectedly. If you anticipate you may have extra visitors arriving this is generally not a problem. Please ensure that Scent of Sorrento is advised so we can let the owner know in advance. This is a matter of courtesy as it is their private property and they need to arrange appropriate linen.
At no stage can the guest numbers exceed the maximum number allowed for that house.
Please allow time before you leave home to read our detailed instructions and guidelines that will be included in your final documentation. This saves any last minute queries. The information supplied is continuously updated with hints and tips from our own travels and those of our clients. If you read this information before you leave you are sure to pick up a few helpful ideas that will make a difference once you are away. Please read the driving instructions, maps etc and ensure you are happy with what has been supplied.
Complaints are few and far between. It is vital that any serious complaint, especially one potentially involving any sort of compensation, is dealt with while you are at the property so that all parties have the opportunity to remedy the situation as soon as possible. You need to first speak with the owner/key holder. Secondly with the agency (if there is one) if you have had no satisfaction. And most certainly let Scent of Sorrento know if you need assistance. Failure to do this may make it impossible to investigate your complaint fully and may effect your right to any compensation. If you are not happy with the accommodation we will do our utmost to resolve the matter with the owner/agent but Scent of Sorrento is not responsible for the condition of the accommodation. Full contact details will be in your documentation.
As our properties are primarily privately owned and of a characteristic and quaint nature complaints relating to e.g. the personal furnishing choices of the owner or similar can not be considered.
Unexpected roadworks, nearby building/renovation work or similar are beyond the control of any owner or Scent of Sorrento. This also applies to noise issues e.g. traffic, local festivals or summer street parties, barking dogs, church bells, early morning rooster calls plus other aspects e.g. local smells.
You are responsible for any damage or breakages during your stay. E.g. a stain on the carpet, overflowing bath, fire, consequent loss of income for the owner etc. Be prepared that the owner’s insurance often only covers natural disasters or a proven fault in the house during the period while holiday guests are in residence. This is considered quite normal in many European countries. All good Travel Insurance policies offer Personal Liability compensation for property damage. Every guest should have their own coverage.
Scent of Sorrento prides itself on its quality of service and commitment to the customer. However, in the unlikely event that we have to make changes to your holiday due to exceptional and unforeseen circumstances such as emergency structural repairs etc, we will advise you at the earliest possible date. We will do our utmost to find a property of similar value or offer you the option of a full refund. In the event of a force majeure (extreme weather, war, threat of war, earthquake and other natural or nuclear disasters, act of God, industrial disputes, riot, fire, terrorism, or any other event outside our control), and Scent of Sorrento is forced to cancel your holiday, you will not be entitled to compensation.
Scent of Sorrento acts as the booking agent for the owner/provider of the accommodation and, therefore, it is the owner/provider who is responsible under Italian law for any claims you may have for injuries/accidents arising from their negligence in providing the accommodation. Moreover, Scent of Sorrento does not accept responsibility for any default on the part of other travel companies, passenger service or holiday accommodation, which has not been booked through us. We endeavour to describe all our properties as accurately as possible to the best of our knowledge at the time of publication. However, owners occasionally do make changes to properties and services offered please check at the time of booking.
Once a booking comes into existence you have agreed to pay the total cost of the holiday. On arrival, a refundable security deposit will be required on an average of approximately €150/200 (more can be requested for large or luxurious properties), please check the booking voucher. This can be paid in cash. The deposit will be refunded on departure, less cost of damage or breakages caused to the property. Keys will be handed over on payment of the deposit. You must leave the property in the same state of cleanliness and repair in which you found it. The owner/agent reserves the right to withhold some or all of your deposit to meet the cost of cleaning/repair. The owners/agents reserve the right to terminate the rental agreement if you, or any member of your party, fail to respect the property and its contents. You will be held liable for any breakages/repairs. If you are delayed in reaching your property or need to curtail the length of your stay, due to illness, delays, personal reasons etc. no refund can be made.
Arrival/Departure - On arrival, please show your passport, booking confirmation and pay any local charges to the owner/agent. As a general rule, arrivals take place between 15.00 and 18.00 (please check your directions letter). Outside these hours, special arrangements have to be made and there could be late arrival charges. You must vacate your property by 10.30 a.m. Properties outside city centre are booked on a Saturday-to-Saturday basis but arrival in the middle of the week is sometimes possible during low season. City centre properties can be booked any day of the week according to availability.
Rates do fluctuate in line with exchange rates and will be recalculated on the day final balance payments are collected. You will be advised if additional monies are due.
The Campania region
Even if you have never heard of this Italian region, we'll bet you've dreamed of visiting it at least once! With Naples as its capital, it is home to the world-renowned Amalfi Coast, the ancient tragic city of Pompeii, and the romantic Isle of Capri (pronounce that CAH-pree, please!). What else is it proud of? Well, if you asked a local, the first thing he would probably tell you is that this is the Birthplace of Pizza, Spaghetti, and Buffalo Mozzarella. See, we were right, weren't we? You have dreamed of visiting Campania!
Back in the 18th and 19th centuries, no self-respecting Northern European aristocrat would dream of leaving Italy without spending a month or so in Naples. But then, after the Unification in 1870, the city fell into ill repute and, all during the 20th century, it was considered dangerous and depressing. This wonderful harbor, once the third largest city on the continent, still has some less-than-picturesque neighborhoods, but the entire historic centre was extensively restored in the '90s, and today we think it is one of the most interesting locations Italy has to offer. After all, what we foreigners usually remember best about our Italian vacations is the people, the lifestyle, the local colour and the food - and nowhere on the peninsula are these ingredients present in such undiluted quantities as in Naples. From dawn to midnight, the cobblestone streets are alive with the vibrant, larger-than-life type of characters we all first encountered in the films of a local girl called Sophia Loren. The city offers ornate Baroque churches, a world-class Royal Palace, two massive fortresses and a pair of superb museums - all of which we highly recommend you see - but truly, the #1 Tourist Attraction in Naples is its streets, its shops, its little restaurants, its breathtaking bay, and the wonderful people who call them home.
When you have finished your own Grand Tour of the city, set out along the coast to discover Europe's scariest road, which will take you to Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi, Ravello and Vietri (the ceramic lover's mecca). Or you can take the easy way out and travel there by ferry or hydrofoil, from the same docks that take you to Capri, the spa island of Ischia, and Procida, where the locals go for their holidays. Just east of Naples, surrounded by the huge ranches that produce unparalleled mozzarella, is the Royal Palace of Caserta. If you like old-time regal domiciles, most of the experts think this 1200-room treasure trove equals or betters Versailles
The Sorrento, Campania / Sorrentine Peninsula area
Sorrento, native city of the poet Torquato Tasso, who was born here in 1544; kind Sorrento; Sorrento: land of colours; Sorrento: land of the Mermaids; Sorrento, the city of the orange and lemon groves, etc Each one of these definitions contains the truth because Sorrento is indeed a very pretty little city where kindness and hospitality are a combination that is handed down from one generation to the next. Sorrento, not to be rhetorical, is indeed the land of colours: brilliant or delicate hues depending on the change of the seasons. If you just pause a moment to observe how emotional a sunset can be when you gaze in the direction of Punta del Capo, of Ischia or Procida, the outlines of which can be seen clearly, you will be amazed by the variety of colours and the beauty of the scene. Or look, preferably from the sea, towards the majestic ridge of tuff rock that changes colour at every hour of the day.And then why not leave your mind go back in time so that, with a bit of imagination, you can see the nimble Greek ships ride the waves and Ulysses bound tightly to the main mast to listen safely to the dangerous song of the mermaids .... or follow the wake of the Roman ships laden with merchandise and busy sailors, or look around the wonderful palaces that the Roman emperors built on our coasts, among the most beautiful in the world. Today Sorrento is a modern city with over one hundred comfortable hotels; it is the home of a prestigious and rich Museum (Correale of Terranova), that contains important testimonies of both the history of the city and of the purest craft tradition of inlaid wood. Sorrento hosts important events in the fields of culture (International Prize Award "City of Sorrento" for science), music (Sorrentine Summer Musical Festival), cinema (International Film Festival), as well as the ideal starting point for visiting to all the tourist sights of the area (Capri, Ischia, Naples, Ercolano, Pompei, Positano, Amalfi) and so... â€¦Welcome and Enjoy your Stay!!!
