The pluses are significant
Glorious quiet garden with orange and pomegranate trees and this on the second floor!
The suite is a bit over the top - high ceiling -inlaid parquet wooden floors - huge mirror and glorious bathroon with marble floor and inlaid mosaics.
Sitting room a mixed bag of some lovely hand painted furniture - beautiful old rugs - charming marionettes with stage in an alcove.
The down side is that Gabriella is rather haphazard as a host.
Breakfast was indifferent. ( had to ask for juice the 2nd morning) and no bread on the 2nd day.
Had to wait for her to arrive to get in - remember it is just a B&B - and I think just 3 rooms so she isn' there all the time.
But still there are many charms of this quirky and very well located spot.
It is on the 2nd floor and no elevator and the stairs are a bit of a climb if anyone in your group has trouble with stairs - it would not work.
On the whole - I am glad that we stayed here - it was memorable for many reasons.
