In The Surroundings
Cher Monsieur Martin, merci d'avoir séjourné chez nous. Nous vous remercions également pour l'excellente critique. Nous disons au revoir, en espérant que nous pouvons encore avoir nos invités. Montechiari in Chianti.
Gentilissimo Massimo, La ringraziamo molto della sua recensione accurata e del vostro soggiorno. Teniamo sempre in gran conto delle opinioni dei nostri ospiti. Per quanto riguarda la prima colazione purtroppo essendo come categoria affittacamere non professionale senza partita iva le normative vigenti ci consentono di servire solo prodotti confezionati. Speriamo le normative possano cambiare e potervi preparare qualcosa fatto in casa la prossima volta. Un caro saluto Gabriele e Sabrina.
Grazie per aver soggiornato da noi, Grazie per il vostro apprezzamento. Speriamo che possiate tornare, sarete benvenuti. Saluti, Ada e Paolo da Montechiari.
