Tuscany Vacation Rentals - Cleaning

Leaving your Tuscany holiday accommodation in clean condition.

clean Tuscan kitchen


There's no need to scrub the floor when you leave your vacation rental, but dishes should be clean and put away, rubbish should be disposed of, and your apartment or villa should be in a tidy state. The author of this article has seen vacation apartments in Tuscany left in disgraceful condition with food remains left all over the table and sink (and floor), dishes unwashed etc. Please bear in mind that you're staying in a private home, whether the owners are there or not, and some hardworking person has to clean up after you. Traditionally, Italians charge a fee called a "final cleaning fee" by the same rationale as for a cover charge in a restaurant. This, together with heating costs, should be the only "extra", but in fact this cleaning fee is now more often than not included in the rent. In any case, please show some consideration for your hosts when you leave.


Generally one bath towel and one hand towel per person will be provided. Unless otherwise stated, fresh linen and towels are provided weekly but beds are always left for the guest to make up. If you're staying for more than few days, very likely extra cleaning services and linen changes will be available for an additional charge.

Pool and beach towels are not usually provided. Please bring your own towels for use at swimming pools or beaches or buy an inexpensive beach towel (generally in plentiful supply from the local markets).
