          A delightful base for exploring

          4 of 5
          We were given a warm welcome to Pensione Trifolia and the house was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The location on the edge of the village ensured a peaceful few days, with cowbells, birdsong and a rippling stream the only sounds to be heard. Numerous opportunities for walking in the area and fabulous views.
