Extra charge for dogs € 20,- for week. Firewood € 5,- per box. Security deposit € 150,-.
Note: Every Italian municipal administration can introduce a tourist tax. Because this additional levy can be introduced from one day to the next and varies from place to place, Toscana Sì cannot give definite information about it.
Even if it is a rather simple cottage, the equipment is surprisingly comfortable / who really wants to relax from the everyday hectic, can do it here / a part of the property is fenced, as well as the pool area, so it is possible to bring a dog.
Occasional dog bark from the neighborhood can not be excluded / the unsecured road (about 2 km) which leads to the house, is very dusty in the summer.
Wir waren zum ersten Mal in der Casa Mauro und sind hellauf begeistert. Allein der Pool! Die Kinder waren stundenlang baden. Eine sehr schöne und gepflegte Unterkunft in ruhiger Lage mit toller Aussicht, die wir gerne weiterempfehlen. Und Mauro, der sehr nette Vermieter, bringt auch noch öfter Obst und Gemüse aus dem eigenen Garten vorbei. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder!
