These rates are per person or per apartment?

--> ALWAYS per apartment NEVER per person.

--> NO, the price is always inclusive of all costs, charges, final cleaning and taxes (except the tourist tax in 2020 it is set to 1 euro per person per night).  Optional daily cleaning is available upon request at an extra charge.

Why the local tourist tax is not included?

--> The tourist tax (or city tax) is set yearly by the municipality. Any hotel or official vacation rental property just collects the tax on behalf of the municipality and it cannot be invoiced. The amount and conditions of the tax may vary and depends only on the municipality policy.

Can I only come for few days?

--> YES however the minimum stay required is three nights and restrictions may apply in high season (May to September - included). Only weekly or longer stays benefit of reduced rate. 

Is there a specific check in day?

--> No, we don't require any specific day of the the week for check in but generally the weekly rentals start on Saturdays or Sundays

What is the cancellation policy?

-->There is not a formal, strict policy however keep in mind that apartment rental is different from hotel rental: reservations come many months in advance and last minute cancellation will cause the apartment vacancy. Therefore, cancellations made ahead of time (at least until 60 days prior check in date) get full refund (deducted the transaction costs up to 10%). Cancellations made within 60 days before the check in only get partial refund depending on the season and the duration of the stay.
Small advance deposit below 65 euro are non-refundable. Note however that long rentals (2+ weeks) or group rentals (several apartments together) have a more restrictive policy. 
I recommend you to get a travel insurance to minimize the risk of trip cancellation or interruption. In this page you will find some useful tips about getting a travel insurance 

What is the policy regarding COVID19?

-->In case of cancellation due to travel restrictions or bans related to the emergency of COVID19, we offer to reschedule the stay at a future date. In case of a new reservation we will consider the same terms, conditions of the rental.

Is a long term rental possible?

--> YES and quite common because of the Italian Language School Il Sasso and because Montepulciano is the preferred base by many to explore all central Italy destinations. Long term rentals (2+ weeks) benefit of special rates and service (weekly cleaning) but have more restrictive cancellation rules.

Are these apartment suitable for family with infants / children?

--> For Infant YES. Renting an apartment with kitchen facilities offer a good alternative to a traditional hotel accommodation. We also provide a baby cot and highchairs. The apartments however are not much suitable for family with young children as all guests are adult/senior and require silence and relax. Also, we don't have extra bed for children or any playground. 

What is the smoking or pet policy?

--> The apartments are STRICTLY no smoking. PET are sometimes allowed provided they are well educated and the owner provide pet facilities. An additional deposit may be required.

Will I have any assistance during my stay in town?

--> YES. I'm happy to help you in organizing your travel to Montepulciano and your stay. I'm always keen to suggest you best places to see, to eat and itineraries. You will also find locally extensive travel literature and maps.
