The earlier the better, so our team can take all the necessary time to find the best solution for you. In any case, requests must be received at least two months in advance, or they will not be taken into consideration.

It depends on the availability of the owners and on the types of spaces offered. If prepared meals are not included in your stay, you will have access to a kitchen.

Transportation is on you. If the house is not located in a big city it is preferable to rent a car, but we also have many solutions that are easily reachable by public transportation.
Normally yes, but at the end of the 3-year period the artistic director can decide to prolongue your participation.

The possibilities are varied, some are private homes and others are tourist accommodations. Once you make your request, we will provide you with all the relevant information about the house you are interested in.

If the request is made far enough in advance, our team at Le Dimore del Quartetto will work to find you an alternative in the same area.

Yes, you can submit as many requests of residences as you need, however no more than the number of residencies provided by the membership level you choose.
