Fab - a well equipped, traditional style Italian apartment in beautiful mountains

5 of 5
3 generations of our family spent a week at the property in Bellini, which was clean, well equipped and typical Italian in style - exactly as described / photographed on the website. We made good use of the wonderful veranda and downstairs outdoor seating area, which catch the sun for most of the day and where we enjoyed many family meals and entertaining relatives who came to visit. The property enjoys lovely views up the hillside and across the valley, and in the evening there is so little light pollution that you can star gaze for hours! Simon the owner was super helpful, prompt in responding to enquiries and kindly sent us local information about eateries and shopping which was very useful. The property is a short walk from a children's playground and from a pizzeria and bar (with delicious icecream), which we visited on a couple of occasions. There is also a shop in San Michele which was useful for essentials.

A lovely relaxing stay, away from it all!

4 of 5
I just want to say thank you so much for the use of your accommodation in Castelletto. We had a superb time and enjoyed exploring some of the villages, walked a little along the Santa Franca route to Vezzolacca and enjoyed great food at home (including from the pizza oven) and local Trattoria and Ristoranti. We could easily spend so much more time relaxing there in the beautiful heat!! Some local information/ maps would have been welcome to get us started.
