To be honest we don't know where to start-we were hoping to find a place close to Rome, close to the coast, with a castle/village feel and that could give us the taste (food too!) of the real Italy- but... We found this and just sooo much more- three days later were we truly relaxed?-Yes; had we experienced extraordinary gastronomic... More

I concur with all the brilliant reviews of Nena al Borgo Castello. I’m not even sure I can adequately express how truly wonderful this place is!

We intended to stay just the one night at Pico, which is a beautiful medieval town 30 mins from the sea- yet after talking to Carlo, our host we were convinced into staying 2. Carlo is truly a wonderful host, very knowledgeable on the area, very passionate about food, his town and great at giving tourist advice. Nena's apartments have... More

Pico is a slow town in June but Carlo who is your host will do all he can to optimize your stay. A walk around the old part of the city and up to the castle gives the feeling of being 500 years back in time.

We stayed here for three nights in April and had a wonderful time. Carlo is a great host, the rooms (Bishops quarters) were comfortable and we felt like honored guests in his house. Highly recommend it It is not easy to find. Google's directions were accurate but park at the foot of Via XXIV Maggio and walk up.

We have travelled extensively in Italy & our stay with Carlo certainly counts as one of the best ,if not the best, accommodation experience that we have had.
