Surprised by all of the good reviews for this place.
Family run. Owners were very friendly, if not a little too friendly at first. That was until we told him we were leaving and not able to stay for the entire duration at their place, then the man showed another side of himself. We made an excuse but in reality we just did not want to stay at their place any more. The environment was strange for us and it felt uncomfortable being a part of their family life. I personally would not like to have my child running around playing in the same area as the paying guests/strangers. I understand that B&Bs are more smaller and personal than hotels but still I don’t think I need to be that involved in the owners life’s.
The B&B is situated in a quite side street, behind the main door one enters into a nice, small rectangular garden area. There is the owners home where breakfast is served and then opposite are three converted stable rooms. There were also some guests who seemed to be staying in the house with the family.
We stayed in the stable rooms and I was completely disappointed and felt very deceived by the good reviews and photos. The room we had was dark, damp and smelly. There were no windows for light or ventilation, unless one kept the door open. Small, corridor style bathrooms. One double bed in the room and then boards placed above the bed to make a mezzanine area for two single matrasses. We had the worst sleep ever on the double bed and only managed to last 2 nights. The bed sunk in the middle and was terribly soft, it really was awful. We were able to hear the other guests in their rooms and it’s not really a pleasant experience to hear the neighbours going to the bathroom and snoring during the night. Satellite TV in the room was good but a tiny little tv screen. Wifi reception was only working near the main house and not in the rooms. The breakfast was very nicely made by the owners though we did not like having to be seated with the other guests and thought it would have been nicer to have separate tables.
The owner recommended two restaurants and each time we saw the same B&B guests in the restaurants.
The owners were very nice at first and seemed very friendly with some of the other Italian guests, I suspect a lot of the good reviews are largely based on how welcoming the family are as opposed to the actual quality of the rooms.
Would never go back or recommend the place. A shame that the best beaches we found during our stay in Sardinia were located in this area as the accommodation in the area was terrible!!
