Just to clear up some confusion about the location. La Tana is in Monteleone di Roncofreddo not in the centre of Roncofreddo as Google maps have it. Your satnav will find it.
We were in the area of San Marino earlier this summer and it was blisteringly hot. So we were looking for somewhere quiet and shady with a pool for an overnight stay. After much surfing i hit upon La Tana.
It consists of a main house and a block of ( I think ) 7 bedrooms in a row, looking across a wide lawn to a good sized swimming pool. The rooms are much lovelier than my description implies. Large and well appointed with plenty of space and excellent bathrooms, and a nice sitting space outside, separated from the next room by a canvas curtain.
The views, from the back, are outstanding. All the way to the Adriatic coast.
When we were there, fairly early in the season there was only one other room occupied and they were out all day so we had the garden to ourselves.
The owners were able to recommend a nearby, very rustic and typical of the area, restaurant for dinner and we found it good value and enjoyable. Lovely pasta.
In the morning an excellent breakfast was served in the main house, most of it with home made baked goods and jams. I cannot think how one reviewer can describe it as "sufficient". It was much more than that. I will resist my usual temptation to go off on a riff about how bad Italian hotel breakfasts usually are. La Tana, of course, is not a hotel. It is the home of a lovely couple who share it with you.
