Doris was the ideal host and sorted any questions or queries we had very quickly and efficiently. The flat is well appointed is well equipped and has everything you would need. The public Wifi arrangements is very similar to other Italian cities and is not a problem as the bar literally next door has free wifi if you cannot connect. With two teenage children children addicted to their phones, we didn't find this a problem at all. With fantastic culture, art, food and laid back vibe, we cannot wait to return....thank you Doris

Alessandra was helpful and responded quickly to any queries. Great WIfi which enabled younger family members to keep in touch with friends at the end of each day. The village provided essentials with a general Store, pharmacy, post office 'convenience store' and small take out pizzeria. We found the location great for exploring the region by car. Thank you for enabling a memorable holiday.
