Fabulous location near the Devil's Bridge overlook. Comfortable, clean, charming room furnished with lovely antiques - I'm short so I didn't mind the sloping ceiling in both the bedroom & bathroom of the Orchid room. Friendly, very welcoming hosts who speak good English. Best breakfast buffet in Italy! I would definitely stay here again if I am lucky enough to...

La Ginestra and the adjacent Belvedere are run by the same family. Expect a warm welcome and one of the best breakfast ever. The Belvedere is at the edge of the cliff and offers wonderful views from the breakfast room (shared by both B & B's) and many of the rooms. The views from La Ginestra are a bit less...

Arriving in Civita, it being a little out of the way, I wasn't expecting much from the B&B... WOW! Was I surprised! It was the perfect mix of location, facilities, warm and friendly "family-like" owners, great service, spotlessly clean and tidy, lovely furniture, a very comfortable bed and an amazing breakfast (really, amazing), with some lovely touches from the hosts...

We stayed one night in Civita on our trip through Southern Italy. Civita is a charming mountain town with obvious Albanian roots and the ravine was beautiful even though the climb was very warm even at 18-19 in the evening (early july, 2012 (option not available in "when did you travel")). The B&B was nice, cosy and had a very...

This bed and breakfast provides a homey and comfortable stay. It is placed next to the Belvedere where you can see the Raganello and some beautiful scenery. The family that runs it is delightful and the breakfast served is all homemade by Dina (cakes, cookies but also salty treats), a great way to start your day. If you need any...

This was a huge surprise in an extraordinarily picturesque Albanian village on the edge of the Pollini National Park in northern Calabria. Only a few kilometres from the main autostrada between Reggio and Naples, it is very accessible. This B&B (three or four small houses) is run by a delightful family and is beautifully located - the terrace outside the...

We stayed at Il Belvedere, operated by the same family and next door. Great location in the national park and wonderful views from terrace outside the B&B. By far the best breakfast we have had in two trips to Italy. The mother and son operating both locations are wonderful people and provided many tips for travelling in the area. Would...
