I stayed at La Casa dei Tintori for a week and felt right at home. I had so many questions about how to get places and what to see and Riccardo and Lavinia drew maps, made reservations, and guided me throughout my stay. When I had to leave before breakfast to catch a bus tour on two mornings they set the table in advance and made sure I had food to eat. The B&B is in a fantastic location and feels very safe for a woman alone. My room was simple and comfortable. There are two lovely cats that I enjoyed.There is no "living room" but an area where you have breakfast with tables if you don't want to be in your room. Honestly, I was out sightseeing most of the day and dining out at night so a common space was not an issue. I would go there again in a heartbeat.
