All holiday houses are at least equipped with the following items: kitchen/cooking area with a refrigerator, worktop and cooking facility, a dining area and a sufficient amount of crockery and cutlery for the maximum number of occupants. You should consider bringing the following items yourself, as they are hardly ever present locally: kettle, teapot, can opener, corkscrew and cheese slicer. Generally the beds will be shorter than you are used to, and the mattresses will be softer. If the holiday house is equipped with a TV, you should keep in mind that the availability of cable television is not guaranteed. The number of channels is often limited and the weather may affect proper reception of the channels.
