If you are looking for the 'whole package' consisting of peace, views , comfort yet away from the tourist traps then Casa Bartoli is a gift. Yet close enough to places of interest if you like sightseeing. You will need the use of a car.
From the beginning of our booking until our arrival home things went smoothly with Gordon, the owner, answering our every question by return e mail plus supplying hair dryers at our request. His recommendations of local restaurants and local transport was faultless.
The 'borgo' was excellent with comfy beds and sparkling white linen. The pool is a great place for sundowners or to just unwind.
Take books or games as TV is in Italian with the odd elderly English film.
We all agreed there was only one problem and that was we couldn't stay longer!
