  19. Use of rooms: for Health and Safety reasons it is forbidden to cook in the rooms, using ovens for camping or similar equipment.
  20. Disability and reduced mobility: we have always been very attentive to the needs of people living with disabilities. Ours is a very small business and unfortunately we are unable to offer a service compatible with the requirements of the above mentioned categories. The rooms are upstairs and there are no elevators available unfortunately. The bathrooms have spacious showers 90cm x 90cm but also a shower tray with a step of about 5 cm from the floor. It is our deep desire in the future to be able to offer a product with no architectural barriers.
  21. Hours of rest: we are located in a very quiet residential area where we need to respect the following quiet hours: from 24.00 to 08.00 and between 14.30 and 16.30.
  22. Smoking: is forbidden to smoke in the bedrooms and in all the common spaces of the house. All bedrooms have balconies, where smoking is allowed. We rely on the common sense of guests and fellows when smoking in the porch in the presence of other people and especially children.
  23. Pets: we love dogs and cats and know the difficulties to face, to arrange a holiday together our four-legged friends. However the B&B is not yet equipped with facilities appropriate to host pets. Reptiles, spiders and other exotic animals we like to visit them in their natural habitat or admire them on National Geographic but not in the B&B.
  24. Common Spaces: upon arrival guests will be shown all the common areas of the house. Use of the kitchen, both for health and Safety reasons and for logistical reasons, is not available to guests and fellows except for Moms & Dad who need to warm up baby food and distil bottles, as well as for those who want to enjoy our popular cooking classes.
  25. Interruption of the stay: the guest who will not comply with the rules in this terms and conditions, will be warned verbally or will incur in the immediate termination of the stay, without any refund.
  26. Ecology and Low cost in two points
    1. Air conditioning: it is included in the price of the stay and the usage is at complete discretion of the guest. The B&B doesn’t possess any kind of limitation of use of air conditioning. However we would like to ask all guests to respect the B&B’s environmental policy and manage the air conditioning system in an intelligent way, by turning it off when they leave the bedroom. Our air conditioning system is of the latest generation and is able to cool down or heat up the bedrooms in a few minutes. If the guest would like to find the room at a specifically desired temperature when  returns home, it will be enough to send us a text message and we will turn the air conditioning system on before the return to the B&B of the guest.
    2. Water: there is a large tank which ensures water even in the case of maintenance to the water supply. The hot water is provided by a gas-boiler and is always immediately available at any time of the day. Just the same as with the air conditioning, there is no limitation of use of water either in the house. However the B&B would be grateful to guest and fellows if they could avoid any unnecessary waste. Calabria is a region of high drought and water is a very precious element. We trust in guests’ common sense.
  27. Extra services available in the B&B
    1. Baby-sitting: we love babies and we can offer baby-sitting services upon request.
    2. Cooking classes: cooking is our passion. We give lessons of rustic cooking if required.
