Have to agree with everything in the previous review. Cocconato is a quaint hilltop village not spoiled with many tourists. The people seemed friendly, but it helps to know just a few Italian words or phrases to get by. A walk on the old curvy stone streets were always interesting and felt like you were in a special neighborhood - which you were.
The Locanda Martelletti was a great place to stay. The management and all the staff were very polite and helpful. The food was outstanding as was the service. The blend of old stone passageways & big stone rooms with the old water wells - mixed with new glass stairs, make for a very intersting experience.
The rooms were nice, clean and most had great views.
In this little gem of a place that seemed like the real Italy, don't leave without sampling the local wine - Dezzani.
