Maria's house was a gem. It is only steps from St.Giorgio's square and a just a short stroll to the waterfront. The ferry terminal is about a 10 minute stroll away. The place is well furnished with everything you might want and has a warm, homey feel to it. We were there for only a few days but felt right at home. Maria and Pietro were wonderful hosts. They picked us up at the train station and returned us there early in the morning when we were due to leave. They were extremely warm and friendly and, although we had some language problems (they had only some english and we had almost no Italian) we managed to communicate. We had a problem with the power going out and Pietro came over within a few minutes to fix it (blown breaker - he knew where the breaker box was). I don't think you could find more accommodating hosts or a nicer place to stay. I recommend it wholeheartedly! Thank you Maria and Pietro!
