This wonderfully original hotel put us in mind of the type of hotel that would have featured in people's grand tour of the early 20th century That aside, this is a very well run hotel. Part owner, Luca, is a charming young man with a dry sense of humour, but his best asset is making his guests feel comfortable and... More

What makes a stay here such a memorable experience is the 5 STAR service provided by the Busomi family. The two sons were very hospitable without being in your face and could not have been more helpful in providing local information which... More
