Four of us stayed here for 3 nights in this lovely Italian country setting. The hosts were away for the first 2 nights but we were looked after so well by their friend Francesca and then met Marje and her husband on our last day and what lovely people they all were. The rooms are impeccable, lovely old building with beautifully appointed bathrooms, the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on, thick stone walls kept the rooms cool in the very hot temperatures we had. The breakfast served in a little chapel was a feast of croissants, home baked bread, delicious meats and cheeses, fresh fruit and one of us being unable to eat gluten had her own gluten free cake made for her. You need a car to get around but it is easy driving distance to sights nearby. We loved staying here and would come again if we could.
