If the customer does not have a credit card, he \ her must contact the Structure. In these cases, the Structure reserves the right to request the payment of a deposit that must be received from the Structure within 2 days from the booking date, by bank transfer.

These indications do not apply to not- reimbursable rate or to those reservation that are done within 3 days of the date of stay.

The Customer is obliged to always check the confirmation of the reservation received in order to avoid the occurrence of any mistakes or misunderstandings.
Method for the management of the Special Events. In some special periods (i.e. Christmas, New Year's Eve, Easter, historical regatta, etc.) the Structure reserves the right to request a minimum of nights for the stay and for all bookings the cancellation / modification policy may vary (i.e. it will go up to ten days before the date of arrival). The structure also reserves the right to change the amount of penalties applied for non-late or late cancellation / modification and non-show. All special events and changes to the policies normally applied will be reported at the time of booking using the different sales channels (own web site, OTAs, etc..).

Payment can be made by bank transfer or credit card at the time of booking. This type of reservation is to be considered non-modifiable, non-cancellable and non- reimbursable upon receipt of confirmation.
Method for the management of the holiday packages. In case of purchase by the Customers of a "package" solution (ie stay + additional complementary services), the Structure specifies that no service included in the package sold will be reimbursed in case of non-use. The structure reserves the right to request payment of the entire package in advance or upon arrival at the Structure, without prejudice to the validity of the guarantees requested to the Customer at the time of booking that have been described above.
Method for the management of the stay and the little Italian breakfast. The Structure intends to provide the opportunity to enjoy a small Italian breakfast at an additional cost per night compared to the stay of € 20 per person al least. The payment of the small breakfast, unlike the other packages, can be adjusted at the time of the balance of the stay only and exclusively for the reimbursable rates, according to the Structure.
