! IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO CONSIDER BEFORE BOOKING !
INTERNET - Please be advised that here at "Il Colombaio", as well as in many Italian rural areas, the Internet connection may be slower than expected, and the data allowance is limited. This means that you can use Internet for browsing, e-mailing, voice calling, but you'll have to give up live streaming, up/downloading large files, online gaming and video calling. If these activities are your priority, we suggest you to search for an accommodation that ensures a reliable and unlimited connection (cities and towns are generally better served than rural locations).
Please understand that the quality of the internet connection does not depend on us: we share with our guests the same service that the Companies give us. As always happens, rural areas are left behind by technological advancements but, on the other hand, it is precisely this "slow time" that makes the Tuscan countryside so appealing as a holiday destination.
PETS - Small pets are accepted, only with prior approval; one-time pet cleaning fee of 35 Euro applies.
We want to inform you that our property is not fenced and in some places there is an electrified wire (to deter wild animals such as boars and deers). In accordance with the hygiene rules, pets are not allowed in the swimming pool; finally, we have 2 cats living freely outside.
AIR CONDITIONING - A/C is included in the rental price up to an average consumption of 2 kWh per day: this is considered a normal usage. Over this amount, if used, A/C is charged as extra, according to meter readings taken upon guest arrival and departure and based on the current energy cost per unit. The meters are located inside the apartment so you can check and manage your consumption at any time. Please note that A/C is quite uncommon in Italian homes, especially in the old buildings, as the thickness of the stone walls, tile floors and wooden shutters to keep out the midday sun, helps to keep homes remarkably cool naturally. If you plan your trips for April, May, June or September keep in mind that the weather is pretty balmy in these months, and chances are you will use A/C just occasionally during July and August.
The pool is open from May through September; it is reserved for our guests only: no visitors/outsiders are allowed. Please be advised that the pool is not fenced and there is no lifeguard service. Everyone is kindly requested to keep the pool area in order, put the sun-beds back in their place and close the umbrellas when leaving the pool.
