After arriving late (22:30) at the location we were greeted by the owners and received a quick tour of the house. The child bed looked almost new (probably was since the tags were still partly on it) and everything was nice and clean. Maria had purchased breakfast for us due to the arrival time and a nice bottle of wine to celebrate my wife's birthday. All this made us feel at home. The lay-out of the house is good with the 2 bathrooms and 3 bedrooms being situated in one side of the house and the living area on the other side. This meant that the child can sleep without being disturbed by noises from the living room. The kitchen is well equipped with pots and pans and herbs to cook with. But the best part of the property is the outdoors area. The balcony has a beautiful view of the sea and is a nice place to relax in the afternoon and read a book. We spend most time however in the garden at the back of the house. Its the perfect place to play with a child since it is completely fenced and safe for a child to play. We would definitely want to come back here another time.

We went out of season, September 12 th for 2 weeks, so very few restaurants open but we enjoyed that and cooking was no problem. Just a small point, but I love the facility that is very Italian, (my cousin lives near Rimini and has the same), of NO dishwasher, but a practical cupboard above the sink which has a draining aspect built in so you put crockery and cutlery directly above. NO NOISY machines. The dynamic sound of the sea overrode all else, especially as it must have been stormy before we arrived so heard it at night for the first few nights. Perfect temperature during the day for wonderful sea swimming and I was able to paint and draw without worrying about burning so quickly. Hill top walks to another beach too. My main concern, would have to be the mosquito! As there is no air conditioning, we left doors open in the day without realising how 1 creature can disturb the whole night. Mosquito nets on windows and main door would of made a massive difference. The room with bunk beds in the absence of aircon, definitely need a window open. I can't imagine how anyone could bear the temperature in high season without. The owner was always quick to answer my emails. And his mother, who lives above, was very kind and respectful of our privacy at all times. I would definitely go again !
