Guido was very friendly and helpful, generous with the gardens produce and bottles of fine wine! Off the main drag and we found a hire car a must but enjoyed the 'exciting' drive around the contoured roads.

There was a nearby market and we were able to BBQ and cook in easily. The outdoor shower was fantastic as our trip was during a very hot and humid portion of the summer.
