ABOUT THIS ASSIGNMENT

- for which it is natural to return your accommodation as neat and tidy as it was initially given

- Empty the mailbox, open and close the blinds, switch the lights on and off, ventilate

- if necessary, watering plants in the garden

You would be free in your time schedule.
It is, however, necessary to PROTECT our house and property and not to be absent at night, because this contradicts the purpose of the housekeeping. Of course, you are not "chained" and can undertake day trips as you wish!
We are not liable for potential accidents on our estate or as part of the housekeeping activity (the same applies to your visitors). It may be advisable to take out a private accident insurance.
PRIVATE LIABILITY INSURANCE
The existence of a private liability insurance is a REQUIREMENT to sit our house. Not because of any little things. Such happen and are part of life. But in the event that completely unintentional real damage would be caused.
TRAFFIC SITUATION / PUBLIC TRANSPORT
Groceries are not in our little village. You’ll find them in a distance of about 6 km. So, it would be best, if you had a car or used the public traffic.
- A car you had to rent, because we will be on the road with ours.
- The public traffic is well organized here. It’s a good bus- and train connection here.
We can provide more information.
Unfortunately not allowed.
The present description, is the basis/part of our housekeeping-contract.
