Fantastic place, really old and characterful property with very friendly and welcoming host. Traditional breakfast, and setting is an interesting town with quiet old style streets ideal for an evening walk around. Head for the restaurant just on the outskirts of the town. Great meal.

I have been to Italy several times but this time I went alone hoping to learn a few Italian cooking skills and to enjoy a part of Italy where I had never been.

My husband and I stayed with Carlo for one night while en route to the Amalfi coast (to break up the drive). There simply aren't words to describe our experience.

I am so grateful that a friend and I discovered Carlo's beautiful Nena in the small town of Pico. What a treasure. The restored rooms and apartments are beautifully decorated and very comfortable; the bed was firm and the shower big with plenty of hot water.
