We booked this B&B 2 months before and, according Veronica's words, she was "looking forward from you soon"....no mail from Veronica in my box.
When the scheduled day happened, we arrived at Veronica's house at 6.30pm.
The door was closed; luckily a phone number was written next door.
We called at this number and a woman in bad mood held the line:
It was Veronica who was disgusted to see that we were on time...
She told me that she sent the day before 2 mails At
Airbnb to have a confirmation for our arrival. As she received no response,(i did not receive any mail from her part...),and was unpatient she decided to go out this evening and could not accept us to sleep!!
But as she told me :" you already paid a part..."
She provided us a spare b&b phone number but as she was really unpleasant on the line we decided to don't use it...
One remark on the location it ' s in front of a big road where a lot of trucks drove. So it's really noisy.
Nevertheless we found a new B&B in the neighborhood more quiet.
