It’s understood that the accommodations Cilento Arcadia is offering are not official tourist structures, such as hotels, residences, etc. but private houses. Being such, they do not have standards or categories which are internationally recognized; rather they reflect, in their architecture and furnishings, the local traditions and personal taste of the owner. This is precisely the kind of holiday that Cilento Arcadia is offering, whose motto sounds thus: “to enter straight into the culture of the area, by living for a few weeks in the same surroundings as someone from the area”. In order to experience this in the right spirit, it is important not only that you accept, but also that you know how to appreciate any differences in the accommodations. On its part, Cilento Arcadia has carefully chosen the accommodations, using a minimum and maximum quality range within which it maintains that any citizen of Europe and indeed the world can find total satisfaction. Cilento Arcadia cannot exclude, however, the possibility that these differences may result in those minor inconveniences, that – being connected with the particular characteristics of the architecture and of the traditions of the area – cannot be accepted as complaints. Cilento Arcadia declines any responsibility for differences and lacks of materials and furnishings in the measure they correspond to the personal quality standards of the client; Cilento Arcadia does not give any refund.
