The place isn't easy to find, particularly if you're using a map, but it is perfect. (Try to arrive before nightfall.) Our room was clean and beautifully laid out with its rustic furniture and wooden beamed ceiling. The bathroom (just a shower) was clean and modern and well-stocked with towels, shampoos, etc..
Breakfast was a delight with its local cheeses and squeezed orange juice(for which no extra charge is made unlike at some other places at which we had stayed)
The owners, Luigi (he speaks good English) and his wife, are clearly eager to maintain high standards and to keep their place looking good. (Instructions include not to move furniture in the bedrooms and not to walk around barefooted except by the pool!) There is free access to the internet.
The staff were very kind and helpful and the view from this location is absolutely splendid.
There is no lift and Luigi wanted to carry our suitcases up two flights of stairs to the bedroom, but I wasn't prepared to let this charming Italian (no youngster) do so.
My only regret was that this was our last night in Italy. We could have stayed there much longer.
