If you love being woken every morning at 0650hrs by the permenant Italian residents next door reving their 3 motorbikes to go to work then this is the place for you. They also have a dog which lives … More
first of all I would like to point out that the house where you stayed at is NOT the house you reviewed here but a house nearby which, although belonging to our group of properties, differs much in size and price. The noisy motorcyclists you described were actually our German guests staying at another of our properties. I did not notice they were so loud (and we slept nearby) but if I only had an idea of this problem I could have at least told them to park their motorbikes somewhere else. The puppy you mentioned is not leaving permanently outside, however I did tell our neighbours about the problem, and as I did not hear from you during your 4 days stay, I thought things were going better. The house where you stayed at is a nice cottage for two which overlooks a small idyllic square together with other four houses, three of which belonging to us. Most of the time there is not even my neighbours' car parked in the square (as the country road leading to it is fortunately too narrow for most of the cars). I can not ask them to stop closing car doors and starting the engine when they leave in the morning. As for our neighbours building the pool, it is weird how you managed to hear them digging on Saturday all day, as just on Saturday you left. However, I am sorry if they ruined you last day at our place. In about 10 years of activity I never had such unfavourable reviews from my guests which exclusively refer to our surroundings. We always do our best to please all our guests, even welcoming them after midnight and carrying their luggage for free as it happened with you (although we are not supposed to). Ours are self-catering “village houses”. The fact that there are neighbours here may be an advantage for some and for some others not. An isolated house is always a good option... Regards.
