Had very high expectations of this place after reading countless positive reviews and those which were not were all replied to in a very believable way. The manager even goes to the extent of saying to someone's review 'you didn't even stay here..we had no british or american guests...'!
Well, we did stay there and I have the photos to prove it so please don't use that comeback with me!
We checked in and were taken to an old shabby room with dodgy electrics situated above the kitchen (named if I remember correctly 'Leccio'). I very nearly cried, I was so disappointed! I was looking for the 'oasis of tranquillity' the place describes itself as but it was far from that with the noise of chattering, pots n pans clanking from the kitchen and dogs barking. Everything about the room was uncomfortable. If we weren't lucky enough to have had the opportunity to change rooms the next day we would have gone elsewhere. The new room (Timo) was a slight improvement as it was in a newer building away from the old house with working electrics and a cleaner more modern feel; although the upkeep of the room during our stay was below standard. The heavy duvet supplied and no sheet in the heat of july was bizzare. The guests who had moved from that room to a new room wondered how we could cope with it, it was so small, we said you shouldve seen the first room we were put in-you wouldn't put a guest in there! Even in our new room 'Timo' we couldn't escape the noise of guests chattering and the dogs barking.
On a positive note the breakfasts were amazing and Rosetta was very thoughtful and kind. Dinners were fine, plentiful but not always as fresh tasting or appealing as the breakfasts. We also met a lot of nice guests during our stay.
