This is our Summer-House which, since we are not using very often, you are very welcome to rent and enjoy when we are not there. ;) Also please remember that, to protect the tranquillity of our neighbors, unfortunately if we receive complaints of any kind from them you will LOSE your Security Deposit money. We are sorry to force this rule on you but it is to avoid problems we've had with tourists in the past. Here are the answers to the questions that I receive more than 10 times/day (the first six 99% of the times):
WILL I SIGN A CONTRACT AND COMMUNICATE THE ID DOCUMENTS OF ALL THE GROUP-MEMBERS? YES.
Since we declare all these rent-incomes in our Taxes Declarations I really need you to sign a Rent Contract (even if you stay only 3 days) that I will send you by eMail and you will have to sign and send back by eMail. Additionally we also need the info of the National ID Documents that you and all your group-members will bring in your vacation (the local authorities gave all house-owners the obligation to communicate the identity of all their renters since 2012). Sorry, but if you don't complete this step within 48 hours from booking I reserve myself the right to cancel it.
IS IT AVAILABLE? YES.
You don't need to ask me. If the Airbnb Calendar shows the place as Available then you can book immediately.
WHAT 'S THE TOTAL COST? THE ONE CALCULATED HERE BY AIRBNB.
You don't need to ask me. Simply select your days of Arrival/Departure and the exact number of Group Members and Airbnb will show you the Total Cost (Deposit excluded and optional Bedsheets/towels excluded).
GAS, WATER ELECTRICITY PAID AT THE END
The utilities are not included and you will pay them at the end of your stay proportionally to your use (with this latest average cost of my recent bills):
Ga (Website hidden by Airbnb) 0.98 € / m3
Water 2.97 € / m3
Electricity 0.29 € / kWh
To calculate how much you have used you would simply have to send me the photos of the readings in "cubic meters" and "kilowatt hours" of the gas meter, water meter and electricity meter on your arrival day and on your departure day.
CAN I HAVE BEDSHEETS AND TOWELS? YOU CAN RENT THEM.
Bedsheets and Towels: 10 euros/person.Just tell me how many sets you want to receive at the beginning of your stay and I'll update your total cost.
WHY IS THE CLEANING FEE SO HIGH?
What Airbnb calls "Cleaning Fee" is an amount I use only to "redistribute" the total cost to strongly discourage very short rents of 1 or 2 days. For example:
1-day Rent —> 500€ + 10€
60-day Rent —> 500€ + 600€
HOW TO PAY? TO AIRBNB.
The Payment Method of Rent and Deposit is the one that you prefer paying directly to Airbnb (as an intermediary).
LOOSING SECURITY DEPOSIT MONEY
The Deposit Money will be returned to you 48h after your departure only if you have followed all the rules shown here below at the end. The Deposit Money is automatically credited on the day of your arrival from the same method of payment you chose during booking.
WHEN CAN I CHECK IN? IT DEPENDS.
It is very important that you tell me immediately during booking your check-in and check-out times. Usually the rule is:
Check-in after 4pm
Check-out before 12noon
But if you ask me in advance I will try to see if it is possible to make an exception.

HOUSE RULES AND DEPOSIT MONEY
The Security Deposit that you have authorized to Airbnb will be automatically "blocked" (not "paid") on your credit card or bank account and it will be "unblocked" 48 hours after leaving only at the conditions below. If instead you didn't follow the House Rules then the Deposit will by really paid. I am sorry about so many rules, but they are necessary to avoid problems we've had in the past with other guests:
1.If I don't receive complaints of any kind from the neighbors. it is very important that you respect the permanent neighbors by not making noise (especially at night) and using your keys instead of ringing the doorbell to open the street-door.
2. If you are no more the number of persons you have paid for.
Please, during your booking request confirm that you have read and understood all the description of the Ad and the Deposit Rules and tell me your arrival/departure times on your first/last days and the following info below from the National ID Documents that you'll bring with you. Sorry, I can't accept your booking without those confirmations. Thanks for your cohoperation! ;)
