First of all when he booked he wrote they will be 3 people instead they were five people in a house for four, he did not ask me if he could bring his dog ( I have 3 cats! ) and he did not respect the rules of the garbage house, I had to spend 1 hour to put it in the right way! They arrived at 11,30 before the scheduled time of check-in and cleaning women had to work very hurried and agitated. On the contrary I think we have been very kind and helpful given our fruit of our garden and wine!
