The village was sadly a bit run down but the locals were friendly and Stazzo (next village) had a restaurant and cafe that were excellent. A car is essential but the streets are narrow and Italian drivers are quite aggressive. The only odd thing was the charging system whereby the rent that was advertised was apparently for 2 persons in a 7 bed house. Any more than 2 were charged at 12€ per night. We have never encountered this before. I have been renting appartments for about 30 years. On the whole we had a good time and it was very interesting.
