For us the most attractive aspect of this house and the reason we selected it were that it was an authentic Italian home, owned by an Italian family. We were not disappointed in this sense. We got the feeling of living in an Italian environment as we saw the neighbors going about their daily lives and we got to walk in a “typical” charming Italian neighborhood with narrow streets and old but attractive buildings.
When we first arrived it was a little difficult to find the house as the street we were to take was so narrow that we thought it was not for cars. Fortunately, a very nice woman from the neighborhood very kindly helped us.
The house is nicely decorated with antiques and paintings. It is clean and spacious and has two floors; upstairs there are two bedrooms (the master bedroom with a double size bed and the other, the children’s bedroom, with a king size bed), two bathrooms, and an ample and long hall with a desk; downstairs there is a kitchen and a large and long...
