We were here for a wedding. The accommodation is wonderful and Laura was helpful in all ways. The small village location is perfect if you just want to wander around and get to know the people local to the area. We felt completely at home and would return without hesitation. We held a pre-wedding party at the house and those who came loved experiencing time in an authentic Italian home.

Fantastic romantic getaway!

We just had an incredible week in Stone Cottage, Giulio was a lovely man, and delivered us bread every morning. We also sampled one of his bottles of wine, which was delicious. Lovely views, lovely and quiet. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. The roads are narrow to get there but it was worth it. Feel thoroughly relaxed.
