You only share the external washing machine with the other cave.

Other things to note
WATER
Tap Water is perfectly fine to drink, so you no need to buy water.

COOKING
There are two induction hobs

TV
There is no television. Which is good for the brain.

VILLAGE PEOPLE
The folk in the village are really welcoming and have a great sense of sharing, anyhow remember that it's a small conservative village with just 85 inhabitants.

MOSQUITO (summer)
There are mosquitoes nets installed on the windows, keep them closed if you want to avoid the problem (especially in the night).
I invite you to get some Citronella oil and spread it around the place, it will keep insects and pests away, and it's healthy for you. If you buy it and leave it in the house, I will refund you the price.

DISCOUNT
Thanks for reading so far.
I am willing to offer a discount to you who took the time to read all the description! Just write me the sentence ´Camerota rota-rota discount´ in the first message you send me, and I will offer you a 10% discount.

EACH SEASON IS SPECIAL
This area if Italy is always fascinating to visit.
If you want to meet many people, having nightlife and joining events, the best season is the summer.
If you want to enjoy the temperate weather and have more private time, spring and autumn are cozy seasons.
The winter is also to consider, but just if you want more privacy, have your activities to do and don't mind a bit of chill temperature. However, in the winter, the cost of living is low here.

AIRBNB
Our family has a vacation in the house from time to time; it belonged to our grandfather. Because we don't use it much we share it with you like this we can compensate for the costs, we are not earning money from it; that´s the reason for such a low price.
