Interaction with guests
I communicate with guests via emails, sms or telephone only since I don't live in the area but you can be sure you will get timely feedback. You will personally meet Mickael who will be your primary contact in Villefranche for check in / out or any question you might have.
Other things to note
Free wifi available everywhere in villefranche. Coverage includes the apartment. Just logon to the 'ville de villefranche' network. Obviously since I do not personally control this service I can't guaratee it will always be working but from my own experience it' reliable.

. Check out time is normally 10 AM but we are flexible if no incoming guests are waiting for your check out.
Please make sure you inform us of your arrival time at least 24 hours before your arrive by leaving a message via rbnb.
The appartment is in very nice condition since it has recently been completely refurbished. All appliances and furnitures , mattresses, etc are new. Therefore we expect fellow guests to leave it in the condition it was when they arrived.
Please no smoking inside for security and hygiene reasons (I and probably other guests don't like cold tobacco smell - thank you for your consideration). However, there is plethora of bars and restaurants in the area to smoke.
We would be grateful if you could turn off the air conditionning system when you go out.
