"Casa la Bozza not a good choice in cool weather"
While no doubt pleasant in the summer months, we found the house cold, dark and damp while we were there. The owner was able to get the heat working within a couple of days which made it better but wa… More
I'm very sorry you felt that way.
I admit that the problem you found were real. Internet had problems, I fixed it a few days after your departure. The eating was not working and I had the tecnician to fix it the first working day after your arrival( by the way, I didn't turned on myne in my own house yet and either needed it the other people stayng in the same house , upper apartment in the same days). there is also a leek problem in the kitchen. I am working now on it right now.
The next guest will not find any of the above problems.
The apartment is in effect not very bright, during your stay it has been always very cloudy with not much sun which amplified this sensation. The minor exposure to the sun is an advantage during hot tuscan summer.
Anyway thank for your rewiev, I will use your comments to improve the quality of my apartment and try to give a more pleasant stay to my future guests.
