As the other reviewers have said David and Penny are wonderful hosts and it was such a pleasure to stay here. Wish it was longer!

As on previous occasions, David and Penny made us feel very welcome. We are particularly impressed that the standard of service and accommodation remains constant. All too frequently, owners of B&B establishments begin with worthy intentions but let standards slip as they become blasé or introduce economies in search of higher margins, but not at la Casa del Giardiniere.
