This was the worst vacation rental we have ever had in Italy, it actually surpassed many 3rd world accommodations. Most of the electrical plugs, washer, balcony canopy did not function. No screens, lots of mosquitos tormented us all night long. All the insulated glass seals failed years ago, making the views opaque. Our shower was about 5' tall and sloped down to 3' in height, there also was no glass or shower curtain. The 1/4 mile walk to town, did not mean to the historic center, but to the bus stop which required 8 - 9 bus stops to town.
Our friends had the room next door. Their room had no window. Both of our rooms had no AC, or adequate ventilation. Our friend's sink trap was held together by tape, leather and was shimmed with a bar of soap. Our balcony canopy was shredded in tatters, and all the ancient outdoor furniture is warped and had dry rot. This vacation rental should be shuttered until basic repairs and restoration can take place. this facility is falling apart. Word to the wise, do not waste your hard earned Euros here. WiFi only worked next to check in desk, not in rooms. No other services available.
