The house and especially the garden are beautifully presented but we felt there should be a lot more to say about the Terry family and their chocolate we were left wanting more....very little mention for Neapolitans! The garden was absolutely beautiful on a dull day...More

Electric scooters are allowed in the house but there is no lift so only the ground floor is accessible with an electric scooter.
