*** For stay equal or greater than one month is required an extra payment for heating and hot water (GAS) and light (electricity) : ****
- Gas and electricity are served by 2 respective counters that are shared with another apartment for rent. If the other apartment is occupied in the value of the gas consumed during the period of stay will be divided by 2 otherwise it will be paid in full.
- The calculation and payment of the aforementioned consume occurs at the end of the stay in cash.
- At the beginning of the stay we , together , write the value reported by the respective counters ( electricity and gas) , we do the same thing in the end.
- The difference in the value of the counter at the end minus the beginning gives the consumption in the period of stay. This value is multiplied by € 0.32 in the case of electricity , this being the cost of the kilowatt / hour in Italy , and for 1 € in the case of GAS as this is the cost per m3 of methane in Italy . As mentioned above the 2 values thus obtained are divided by two if the other apartment is occupied during the period.
Smoking is not allowed in the house.
It is not allowed to bring bicycles into the palace.
