We stayed here because of Interval International. It was the first time we had used our membership. We honestly did not know what to expect. My husband and I stayed for 6 nights. The room was very large for European standards. It was a studio apartment with a kitchenette, living room and bath room downstairs and bedroom upstairs. It was... More

Friendly family staff very helpful. Breakfast is fantastic. Different from a traditional American breakfast, my wife and I were not sure how we would like it. We usually just juice veggies in the morning. Well, everything was delicious and fresh. Home baked goods keep coming. We looked forward to it every day. And although we consumed quite a bit, we...

Well, that is until I discovered Residence La Contessina. My group and I spent a week there last summer and we were all most pleasantly surprised. The service was not... More

We had a large suite with a loft on second level which kids occupied immediately. The property was very clean and nice and the breakfast was top notch. It's just a few minutes walk from... More
