Other things to note
This is not a rental property, but a family house with a long history which I personally cherish and wish to share with my guests. If you appreciate the beauty of antiques, the magic of the wood and marble, the presence of the over a century old trees if you wish to get away from the big city life and hear the birds singing every morning, in an authentically atmospheric place, well you are the perfect guest for Mon Caprice. If you would like to work during your holidays, Mon Caprice's inspirational atmosphere, the tranquility, the wi fi connection and the accessibility of restaurants in the area, will be perfect for a relaxed holiday-work experience and a sound and fulfilling sleep.
