Ciao Laura! thank you a lot for your really nice thoughts, these make us truly happy. I am sorry for the beach thing and in order to avoid misunderstandings, allow me to point out publicly something. As well i could, i always reported things, even the rarest and not contingent things to guests, good and less good once, to assist them before and during their stay; sometimes maybe to often - but you know, just in case; in fact, i did report works on the barrier months before guests would come; i had the feeling i did exaggerate, so once i have seen works on the left side of the river and around it, i did not bother you, as i neeever would think we'd have such administration geniuses to extend the works on the beach nearby on june; nevertheless, i have sent you a report (remember the "Berichterstattung") with video (!) *before* you arrived. I am sorry for that. On the other hand, as i mentioned, during your stay nor you complained to walk 2-3 minutes further, nor you accepted my offer to drive you to any other beach (remember my so called "gianni guarantee", stated just in case before your arrival, for your own peace of mind). You seemed and stated to be happy!
Again, i had to write this, to avoid potential guests think we do run a tourist trap or so. Imagine, not even professional hosts knew about, as they did not know that - for example - the same administration decided to do application of new road coatings last week under a over 30°C sun on the Lungomare, too!
Similarly, i do not know if to report to guests coming next week and next month about the wildfires of the last days on the hills around - maybe not, as they will stay on the beach and do not plan to do trekking.
Ciao Laura! and thanks again for your stay, you are always welcome...!
