Our family staid 3 nights in the Albergo Gentile as part of a walking holiday booked through a travel agency. We were half board and staid 3 days around 15/08 which is a big festival in Italy. Staying at the Albergo Gentile is like stepping back in time, somewhere around 1950's in Italy. The decoration of the rooms has probably not changed much since then but the bathrooms are up to modern standard. It is very clean and family run, so there is a special feeling about it. The half board option was an excellent surprise, with honest and plentiful good family food for the set dinner and 4 courses dinner the Italian way, starter (always including excellent bruschetta), primo piatti (homemade pasta), secundo piatti and dessert! The drinks are relatively cheap and there is a good choice. Our party of 5 was extremely hungry after the day of walk and we never left the table hungry anymore, quite the opposite. We add the additional benefit of being part of the local festivities as the Albergo is on the church square. We had a free concert of local music one night, a small firework another night. On 15/08 we had a problem as our program included taking coaches to and from the start/end points of the walk. Mario was extremely helpful, checking for us the coaches times and when we saw that there was none (!) he phoned a local taxi and help us to book our return trip for a very reasonable price. The albergo is otherwise very well placed for the walks but not at all on the seaside (30 to 40 min bus to the sea!) but there is a cheap daily shuttle to and from it.
If you want a fashionable place, the Albergo Gentile is not for you but if you want a simple, authentic place, with a family feeling you should definitively give it a go
