VERY IMPORTANT !: Having mistaken the amount of the rates and not knowing how to correct them until Homeaway will tell me how to do this, please consider 12% less on the rental price that is going to flow from your request. ALSO:The rates also depend on the number of guests. Therefore in the request it is important to specify how many people require hospitality.SORRY for THIS! Francesco :-)
