The appartment is very nice with a fine kitchen and bathroom. A large pool directly belowe the appartment is a plus if the weather is good.

The apartment is full of character and has everything you need - but its really special feature is the outdoor courtyard. A beautiful space in the middle of the authentic Italian building - perfect for a bottle of prosecco ...or 4 :) The host Angela, definitely wins the award for best host!. Having traveled a lot over the years, and booked many places - you know when your host is truly interested in making your stay as perfect as possible. The apartment is owned and managed by Angela and her family (who we met!, really nice people), and you can see when you arrive and meet angela that this a labour of love. All the little touches and details from fresh flowers, a welcome pack of food and a bottle of wine -the list goes on. Angela went to great lengths to basically arrange and help us book and amazing weekend filled with trips and restaurants. A truly memorable weekend thanks to a great host and apartment!
