Difficult to know where to begin - this is the most beautiful place, a bit like a Disney movie come to life. A gorgeous 16th century farmhouse, lovingly restored and run by Assuntina and her daughter Emma, who produced lovingly home cooked meals and generous carafes of wine and selected Italian digestives (much needed after fabulous and substantial dinners). You can do as much or as little as you please - hiking in the mountains or lazing in the stunning grounds playing with Sebastiano, Guillermo and Rocco (family dogs) plus tame chickens, and a cute cat who all seem to be best friends.
We loved it here, and will definitely be returning.
