...but that's probably just to ward off the irritable ones, because this place is just too perfect.
If you're truly looking for some quiet time situated in purely Italian countryside, this is it. The charming brother owners Joe and Mars certainly made me feel more than welcome when I arrived, and kept that up throughout my stay. The food was exceptionally delicious despite my nitpicky appetite, and their suggestions for activities were the furthest thing from boring. Their personal touch was so accommodating it made me feel guilty at times. No request was too much or unrealistic for them--quite frankly if I had asked for some unicorn meat they probably would have actually gotten me some without hesitation.
Their knowledge of the area and handle of the language is quite comprehensive, and as such I never felt out of place despite having absolutely no handle on speaking/understanding Italian.
Thanks gents--I'm really sorry I couldn't stay longer but will definitely do so when I return.
