We stayed at Ponte Romano for ten days in August 2012 (the date of visit states 2013 as the website will not let me enter 2012). From the moment of arriving, we were in love with the place.
It takes a little of finding, and at one point on the road to the house we stopped the car and I went ahead on foot as we were worried about getting lost on the wrong road and not being able to turn around, but stick with the winding downhill road and you will get there.
As the other review commented, you do have to carry your luggage/shopping across the bridge and up a small slope to the house, but take your time and this is part of the charm. The house itself is stunning, in a lovely location and is wonderfully comfortable. When we stayed I would describe the decor as homely and comfortable rather than luxurious, but this is in no way meant as a criticism. It definitely feels like you are staying in a home rather than a hotel.
The house has a lovely dining area... more
