The property is full of character with generous sized bedrooms and bathrooms and a comfortable bed. The lounge/dining/kitchen area overlooks a valley and has panoramic views which include the view of the nearby village of Aritso. The lounge has a convenient small bistro table where we sat and drank coffee and wine with a dining table that was well placed for enjoying the gorgeous views. The kitchen area is just that, a small area with a two-ring gas hob, microwave, sink, dishwasher and fridge-freezer. The kitchen was adequate. The nearby main road was pretty quiet and no impediment to enjoying the peace and quiet of the countryside. Angelo was charming, welcoming and had a great sense of humour. To get the best communication with him (unless of course you speak Italian which to our shame, we didn't), WhatsApp is the preferred communication method.
The garden was overgrown because of recent heavy rain but that didn't stop us enjoying the numerous butterflies and wild flowers that live there in abundance. The pool was well maintained by Angelo.
It is a 10 minute walk into Aritzo where you will find several local stores, bars and a particularly good Pizza restaurant called S'Iscriscione Ristorante Pizzeria who also do very nice pasta dishes but often don't have some of the meat and fish shown on their menu. Many restaurants close on Mondays and S'Iscriscione kept rather irregular hours trending towards eating later (after 20:00) !!
The surrounding countryside is breathtaking and the roads are generally very good indeed but be aware that your sat-nav is likely to take you down some VERY narrow cobblestone streets with sharp corners and numerous badly parked cars making passage even more interesting!!
We had a fantastic time and highly recommend this cottage.
