Information about the rates

Example: apartment Lavanda 2 + 1 means that maximum 3 people can stay in this apartment. The number after the sign “+” are additional people and the weekly or daily rates do not enclose them!

The use of additional beds, sofa beds and the additional bedroom of apartment Laura is not enclosed. The cost per person, per night is Euro 12.

Our prices include all rates and taxes, as well as bed-linen, towels, electricity and gas, use of WIFI connection, the use of the pool and barbecue, parking (including the use of deck chairs and parasols), as well as the final cleaning.

As the cost of energy (heating cost) is very high in Italy, and to avoid that you will be unpleasantly surprised when settling your bill, we decided – against the usual practice here in Tuscany – to enclose the cost of “normal” energy usage during the cold season, which is from mid-October to the end of April. Only on very cold winter days do we charge a small contribution for heating.

On request we can supply a child’s bed (cot) and / or a child’s (higher) chair (both free of charge).
The use of a washing machine, ironing board and iron is in the rate not enclosed.
The use of the apartment towels outside of the apartments (e.g. pool) is not permitted.
