We just came back last week from Il Cellese for our 10 days vacation which we loved every minute of it. For those 10 days staying in the beginning of this October, there was only one day we got bad weather, the rest was perfect. Although it was warm enough for sun bathing during the day, but it was too cold to swim though.
We are young couple with 1 yo kid, and we rented the Loft apartment which was perfect. The room was very spacious and enough for our kid to run and play around. The kitchen was a major advantages for us bringing small child, and the sofa bed was big enough to be used for two persons although we used it only for our nanny. I am not sure with the thin wall as the others said, perhaps they could hear us from above, but we didn't hear a thing from downstairs (the loft was at the first or first and a half floor). Just hope we didn't bother anyone downstairs.
The road to get there was not as bad as I imagined from reading the other reviews, however perhaps it's different during rainy or winter season.
I love cooking and their olive oil tasted so good. I recommend to bring home as well when you're there. You could ask Sergio a day or two days before you check out so he can prepare them for you.
The view is amazing, you can rely on their website, cause it's exactly like in the pictures :)
