A very tranquil place just off the main thoroughfare south of the river. Tucked away down a small and rather tatty lane the house is tricky to find but the welcome was exceedingly warm and helpful.
Make sure you have a streetmap before trying to find it! Location is convenient for station, airport and all major sights. I was at first apprehensive about staying south of the river with so many of the sights on the north bank. But this should not be a worry, it is a 5 min walk to the river; 15 min walk to the duomo. Alphonso gives excellent recommendations of places to eat in the vicinity.
Rooms spacious and very clean. Breakfast looking out on the walled garden is lovely. There is great homemade marmalade (but sadly no other jams..?)
We arrived by bike which was fine but I could imagine parking would be an extra issue to negotiate. Bicycles stored very securely within the walled garden.
