“Unique blend of healing and beach holidays”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

We stayed nearby the spring Olmitello in August 2013.

You can find this famous source of healing mineral water Olmitello (good for the stomach, kidneys, in general, gastrointestinal tract ) just in 5 minutes walk from Maronti beach.
It's better to drink the water twice a day, in the morning and in the evening before the meal.
It's warm and quite tasty. It was a pleasure to go to the source every morning. We liked the nature and the atmosphere of this amazingly quiet and cozy place.

In fact, I don't know other springs that would be located so close to the sea. You can enjoy the sea with your family while improving your health.

We stayed at Oasi la Vigna B&B wich is located just in the middle between Olmitello and the beach and surrounded by a garden and a lemon grove. The hotel and the restaurant are very nice, everything is done with taste and love. The beach Maronti is 1-2 minutes walk.

This is the perfect place if you want to relax with your family away from the hustle in a secluded location (no adjacent hotels nerby!). There are only 7 rooms, convenient, comfortable and clean. The restaurant is decorated in a nautical and pirate style.

We were pleasantly surprised at the attention and warmth, which surrounded us in these hotel and restaurant. In fact, it is run by the whole family, with several generations: grandmother cooked amazingly delicious homemade food, and Giuseppe (Peppe) and his brothers / nieces try to make your stay a memorable one.

In addition to many local and Italian dishes (most fruits and vegetables were from their own backyard garden, eco-friendly) that we tried here (gnocchi, rabbit, etc.), the owners often treated us homemade wine and limoncello. It all looked so sincere, that we realised there still remain simple and kind people somewhere far away from the big cities.

Special thanks to Giuseppe, who always responded to our whims and came up with new ideas what to cook. And all this with such humor and a variety of jokes and gags, it was always fun.
It's like we've been visiting our Italian relatives, we had this impression! In addition, we didn't have any feeling that they tried to cheat us by the way. Prices were quite reasonable.
In general, we didn't want to leave, we loved it!
