My daughter and I stayed at Orlando B&B for 5 nights in September and our stay made our holiday. I cannot rave enough about this accommodation and how well we were treated by our hosts.
We arrived on Sunday and we're met by Mamma who simply could not do enough for us from trying to carry our heavy suitcases despite our protestations. We were the taken on a tour of the fabulous accommodation which consisted of 3 separate colour coordinated rooms red with a large double and bunk beds, yellow with a large double bed and blue with a large double and a single. We chose the blue room and we're lucky enough to have the whole place to ourselves for the first 3 of our 5 days with an amply packed kitchen and a beautiful roof terrace.
Mamma and her lovely daughter Antonella arrived at the time we requested (9 am) each morning with fresh bread, cheese, meats cakes and fruit to provide our breakfast and treats for the day, insisting on waiting on us with food , coffee etc. we were thoroughly spoilt. Even when I commented that I like white wine with my dinner, they turned up the next morning with a lovely bottle of local wine for which I was not charged. They simply couldn't do enough for us and seemed genuinely eager to impress and please us. We simply fell in love with them and this was despite the fact that they could speak no English and we no Italian (thank goodness for my iPhone translate app).
On the day we left there was initially some confusion as Mamma And Antonella thought we were leaving the following day and when we informed them we were leaving that day they were genuinely very upset for us to be leaving - particularly Mamma who I believe had wanted to give us a better send off and last breakfast than she was able to. We shed a tear saying our goodbyes and felt extremely sad to go..
Orlando BB is perfect. Very comfy bed. Very quiet and relaxing location. Fabulous breakfast and wonderful, lovely hosts who will make your stay complete.
Only downside was that we had to share when new guests arrived, that we could not connect on their wifi and you will need a car to get around as there isn't much locally apart from a pizzeria one street away. Torre San Giovanni is the nearest town and best beach a few miles away at Pescolouse.
Every holiday accommodation should have hosts as lovely as Mamma and Antonella.
You will not be disappointed.
