•Breakfast in the sun – Buy your croissant at the bakery and brew your own coffee. Serve it on the porch upstairs, in the first rays of the sun, with an amazing view of the wakening valley. What better start for the day?
•“Condition the air” Keep the perfect temperature during the day by closing the curtains in the living room and dining area to keep the heat out for a fresh evening.
•Parking. Space is limited in the town center thus parking is a sensitive issue so please try to follow the “pattern” of narrow parking that the villagers apply. You’ll be friendly received and appreciated by all.
•Water. Water in Perinaldo is very precious. It is stored in a big cistern at the top of the village and is gravity fed to houses. Since we are on the lower side we have great pressure but there is not much water so please use economically. Thank you
•The sink in the outside kitchen only has cold water.
•The washing machine heats its own water, put dial on Sale 60. This cycle takes about 2 hour.
•Trash… The rubbish can be put in the green bin at the top of the street. There is also a recycling unit by the Cassini monument 300m from the house.
•Outside stove (gas stove): Please do not use in windy conditions,
Anywhere in the house or the garden, the silence is profound. In the morning to catch the first rays of the sun take your book upstairs on the terrace. In the afternoon sit in the cozy sofa in the extended living room and relax in the last rays of the sun after a long day hiking or after the beach.
No parking at the house, there is a 2-10 minute walk to the house from 'city' parking. The path is a bit steep so would recommend to pack light.
