“secret garden in medieval town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

Well worth the extra time to locate. Depending on the route you choose to get into Viterbo, it can be a bit difficult to find. I suggest driving all around the outer wall and entering through the Porta del Carmine, which is SSW. (The Porta Romana is due South) The Via Carmine narrows into Piano Scarano. Keep going! When you see an open space with a stone-walled bridge and some trees, Stop!The parking area is at the bottom to the left. It may be worth your while to familiarize yourself with the Google street map ahead of time. Crystina, a lovely Polish lady, was very welcoming and helpful. This property has 20 suites set around a gorgeous walled garden. Our room had it's own entrance on a quiet alley. A decent sized sitting room with a sofa and large armoire led to a pretty bedroom with exposed wooden beam ceiling. The bathroom was spotless and everything was very clean and well cared for. Added bonus, our windows had a view to the garden just below. The bed was adequate by North American standards. Breakfast, with a choice of cereals, yogourt, croissants, juice and coffee was served in a glassed-in terrace, right at the edge of the garden. Our stay was very pleasant and are sorry not to have stayed longer.
