If you're looking for something that's more than your quintessential Roman trip, this is it. The rooms are converted from an old village that overlooks the country side. It's like being on the set of King Arthur. No detail was spared. Probably the most comfortable bed we slept in during our whole vacation. Yes, it's a haul from the parking lot, but that didn't even cross our mind. It's also a long way from really, anything, but the landscape on the way was pretty, and we enjoyed our trip. This was right up our alley. We don't care for chain hotels, or touristy anything, and this fit the bill.
They have a great little meat and cheese bistro on the grounds where you can sip wine and relax. Dinner was certainly authentic, serving stew and aubergine. Breakfast was nothing short of amazing- omelets made to order, breads, homemade jams, cakes. The detailing to keep it authentic, but adding modern conveniences is astounding.
The only complaint, which I pretty sure was a mistake was this: they make homemade soaps and lotions on the grounds. In the rooms, there are tubs only and I forgot my conditioner during the first few days of my trip. I have really long hair, and the concoction they had labelled as shampoo was like a liquid candle wax that left my hair in a slick knotted mess that I wasn't even able to comb out. The lesson is: don't forget your own toiletries.
You won't be disappointed. If you're willing to make the trip out, you'll never forget it.
