This review is long overdue as we stayed at the Nena in May however the planning was six months in the making. As a present for our fathers 70th bday, me my wife along with my brother and his wife planned a surprise tip to Pico and Italy. My dad grew up in Pico and has a lot of family there so we wanted to not only take in all the sight but also have a place that was more or less home base. From the first email to the time we left Carlo and the Nena were more than what we expected. The Nena is something that is more or less stuck in time with all the modern amenities. You can still open the original windows to look out to the mountains, as well as go to the kitchen are where you can see the original wall that surrounded the city.
Every morning Carlo was there with a warm welcome as well as coffee and pastries with homemade Jams of fig and other fruits that were terrific. On one of the day, we decided to take a trip to Sperlonga. Carlo let us know that there was another couple in the hotel and looking to take in some sights as well. Not only did he give us directions, he jumped in one of the cars and directed us to to some sights, Sperlonga, and Fondi. Not only did we save time in having Carlo with us, we saw areas and learned of history that we wouldn't have otherwise.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat and recommend that anyone in the are to see family or passing through, spend a night at the Nena.
Mille Grazia Carlo
