we arrived with two children (ages 7 and 9). reception is very kind. breakfast is fresh and appropriate. It is not a large scale hotel, but the breakfast includes the best bacon I've tasted in a while. The grounds are beautiful. Only wish was that there were more playground facilities. There were several kids there as it was May holiday in Europe. Most guests do day trips, but we actually stayed at the grounds, it was very peaceful. Nice pool with an attractive view of the valley. My husband and I had the chance to go running around the area, it is pretty steep but it beats running back home. We also purchased the olive oil from them. Olives are pressed in October, so we missed the chance to see them actually make the olive oil. Our room had impressive high ceilings and was decorated in the 'rustic' Italian design. I was pretty amazed at how good the water pressure was in the room. In general, recommendation this is a great place to stay.
