The B&B itself is simple and stylish. Clean, comfortable,spacious and well-equipped. The owners, Doreen, is such a conscientious hostess whom you can't find elsewhere. She is attentive and well-organized . She can anticipate what you need and want. Clear driving directions will be provided for you no matter where you are planning to go. Besides, her recommendations on restaurant were fabulous and her arrangement for wine-tasting was amazing. My husband even said that this was the most comfortable wine-tasting experience that he ever had.A remarkable plus of Casa di Maio was the breakfast: sliced fruit presented in an artistic way, three kinds of cereals, juices, milk, coffee, tea, hot rolls, cold cut and a warm breakfast (different every day). Though the location is a bit distant,there is no problem if you are driving a car.
