Discounted rates do not usually apply to a private car space or garage or to the “extra person” tariff of 50 euros/week minimum.
There are some circumstances where a special deal can be arranged. However, please note that a “special deal” arrangement is inclusive of all discounts that may be on offer elsewhere and, further, MAY require that 50% or THE TOTAL is paid in advance in order to secure the booking.
OR, YOU MAY BE REQUIRED TO PAY AN IMMEDIATE DEPOSIT AND, THEN, THE REMAINDER, UP TO 9 MONTHS IN ADVANCE, TO SECURE YOUR BOOKING – see below for the cancellation conditions.
Returnees (or anyone they recommend who mentions their name) attract a 5% discount off the full rate FOR LIFE. Indeed, this LIFE TIME discount may increase, the more times you stay with us ! To claim this discount, the name of the returnee must be stated.
A booking of 2 or more properties simultaneously attracts a discount, providing that the period booked is for at least 1 week;
Please enquire about our apartments that can accommodate larger parties because I offer several both in and outside of central Spoleto, where we can accommodate parties between 8 and 30 persons.
Please note that the period from May to Oct inc is almost fully booked by May. Therefore, those of you wishing for a longer term booking in this period, and, at a discounted rate, should book as early as possible in order to increase your chances of a long period being available in one apartment. Otherwise, you can move from one apartment to another, and, include a break in your stay, should you wish.
ALSO, PLEASE NOTE THAT I OFFER PROMOTIONAL RATES FOR NEW PROPERTIES ON THE MARKET - PLEASE ENQUIRE.....
I am increasingly in receipt of scam email whereby someone asks to pay in an unorthodox manner. In order to avoid wasting time, the only method of payment I accept for an advance payment and/or deposit IS via Paypal or via an electronic transfer in sterling or euros (depending on the circumstances at the time) or, if you are familiar with them : Western Union or Moneygram, in euros, in all cases, for the exact amount I have requested. Please note that until I receive the payment into my account, the booking remains unsecured.
IF A SCAM IS SUSPECTED, IT IS AUTOMATICALLY REPORTED TO THE POLICE AND/OR FBI.
CONFIRMING AND PAYING FOR YOUR BOOKING :
As soon as I receive a 25% deposit, your booking is secured.
Your confirmation details will include all the arrangements for meeting you, including the probability of picking you up from the station and dropping you back re your return journey, if you have booked an apartment in central Spoleto. This service could be unavailable in exceptional circumstances eg the car being serviced etc. However, to date, this service has had no interruptions.
We sometimes accept bookings for less than the weekly rate re some of our properties.
We operate flexible arrival and departure dates for MOST properties.
Bookings for less than a week, but not less than 3 days, are calculated on a daily base, pro-rata the weekly rate plus an extra daily tariff that can vary, the total not to exceed the weekly rate and not to be below 500 euros. This is because the main overheads are the same on a daily basis as they are for a week. We do not take bookings for less than the weekly rate for our pool properties, except for Baiano By The Pool.
The pro-rata weekly rate for daily bookings plus the extra daily tariff should not exceed the higher average weekly rate if the rate should span across different price bands.
Days in addition to a week are costed pro-rata the weekly rate.
YOU CAN DIVIDE YOUR STAY BETWEEN TOWN AND COUNTRY EXPERIENCE BECAUSE WE OFFER ABOUT 60 APARTMENTS, VILLAS AND POOL PROPERTIES IN AND AROUND CENTRAL SPOLETO.
A booking of at least 2 weeks will usually attract a discount.
CHRISTMAS/NEW YEAR BOOKINGS BETWEEN DEC 21 – JAN 3 INC :
ALL THE PROPERTIES SLEEPING LARGER PARTIES ARE BETWEEN 2000 - 3000 EUROS/WEEK MINIMUM DURING THIS PERIOD – PLEASE ENQUIRE RE EXACT WEEKLY RATE.
PLEASE NOTE THAT RE THE SMALLER PROPERTIES THAT SLEEP UP TO 4 PERSONS, FROM DEC 21 – JAN 3 INC, THERE IS AN EXTRA TARIFF OF 100 EUROS FOR ANY PERIOD BETWEEN THESE DATES. DURING THIS PERIOD, BOOKINGS WILL BE CHARGED AT THE WEEKLY RATE, EVEN IF YOU WISH TO BOOK FOR LESS THAN A WEEK.
