4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in August 2014

Lovely unspoilt region of Italy. Majestic mountains and warm, clean sea to swim in on the Adriatic coast. Casa del fiume has been beautifully restored and feels homely and easy to stay in. Stewart and Ruth are fantastic hosts, providing advice, help and all things organic to eat! The grounds and outside areas are spectacular but it was difficult to always make the most of these because of the mosquitoes. more
