What a lovely experience this was; a perfect, charming, lovely spot to breathe in a piece of authentic Italy. About 2 hours south of Rome, this was my sanctuary after a long flight from San Francisco, CA.

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. But Carlo and his cook Valentina are the real treasures. What delicious food. We... More
