“Hot, cramped, in the middle of no-where”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2009

After driving to the middle of no-where, Italy be prepared to live like the locals. Stores open at certain times and close for the afternoon and dinner is after 7pm. Make sure you get the food schedule quick as the 6hr time difference really messes timings up with kids.

The only reason to come here is to see the countryside of Italy and see some small towns and walk around.

This may have been a better experience if we were not cramped in the tiny, extremely hot attic with 2 kids, no space and a bathroom that had a sloping ceiling so you cannot stand up fully or take a shower (in the tub).

On the other hand the owners were really helpful and nice. Breakfast was great (some of the best we had in Italy) but the english was a struggle so speak Italian/french if you can!

The pool was freezing. but had a couple of lounge chairs to bask in the sun after.

Good evening,
we are truly sorry for the heat in mandarda, but now we have to install air conditioning.
Unfortunately regards to the spaces of the attic (you say cramped) I would say it is a personal taste, since the pitched roof with exposed wood beams are a feature that customers usually appreciate.

Thanks for the compliments on the breakfast, we will try to give our best ... also the English.


Cordiali saluti.
