A beautiful hidden gem that we can't wait to come back and visit again!

5 of 5
We spent a week here in June and had one of our best holidays. The views are breathtaking and the pool was large, clean and a very welcome break from the lovely hot sun we had all week! The small nearby towns had some lovely little restaurants and bars and the locals were friendly. The house was beautiful and had everything we could possible need during our stay and it was also lovely and cool at night despite the hot weather The owner arabella couldn't have done enough to help us and we will certainly be booking to stay here again. If you are seeking a peaceful and private location for some time in the sun then we couldn't recommend this beautiful place highly enough!

Peaceful country retreat with lovely pool

5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our stay at Monteverdi. Luca, his family and staff were all extremely hospitable and welcoming. A simple but comfortable and well furnished apartment set in the most tranquil and peaceful surroundings on a hilltop with lovely views and cooling breezes. A car is essential but within easy reach can be found fascinating hilltop towns, thermal spas, archaeological sites, beaches excellent restaurants and much more if you can tear yourself away from the swimming pool. We had it all to ourselves. A perfect place for a most relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Thank you Luca
