2018 booking conditions for summer rental of Tuscany cottages

Booking Conditions

Montalto is a private estate, not a hotel. Check-in time is between 4 and 7 pm; please let us know in advance if you need to arrive after 7 pm so that we can make arrangements to receive you after hours. Please check out by 10 am.

The minimum stay is 3 nights. Bookings shorter than minimum stay can be accepted only 10 days or less before arrival, based on availability.

A 30% booking deposit must confirm each reservation. The rent balance is due one month before arrival. Please be sure you have read and agree to our Cancellation Policy before making your reservation.

We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and PayPal. Prices are in euros (credit card payments will be addebited in euros). If you use our online booking system, you will be requested to enter your payment information securely. If you prefer to complete your reservation by contacting us, we will give you instructions on how to make payments on-line.

Rental prices are per house, regardless of the number of occupants. Italian law requires us to remain within the limits of the authorized maximum number of occupants of each house or apartment. An extra bed can be added at extra charge (where space permits) only for an infant or a child up to 12 years of age.

There is a Local tourist tax of 1,50 Euros per person/day for the first 7 days (not applied to children under 12 years)

Pets are allowed in some, but not all, houses; they are subject to an extra cleaning fee of 50 Euros and require special permission, so please be sure to ask in advance.

Cancellation Policy

Reservations at Montalto are not final without a booking deposit of 30% of the full amount of rental. If a cancellation is made at least 4 months before arrival, this deposit will be returned, except for 75 Euros per house for expenses. Within 4 months of the arrival date no refund is possible.

The rent balance is due and payable one month before arrival and cannot be returned after that date.

Groups of 15 people or more, weddings and other special events may receive special pricing with special cancellation terms; please contact us to inquire.
