This is my 7th stay at Ippocastano since 2004. We - or members of our group - have stayed in almost every apartment. They are all quite charming and comfortable.

Nice place. Very good location. Nice pool and clean rooms. No wi-fi, no air condition, but when you keep windows closed, it's ok. Maria and Massimo were very helpful and kind. There is lot of building sites and they made noise and neighbors dogs barked during night times. We enjoyed our holiday anyway.
