We were very fortunate to be tipped off about this beautiful villa. The property dates back to the 12th century. They are doing a wonderful (and very costly) job of restoration. This is a family labour of love. The daughter of the current owner (Gianda), was our main contact. What a warm, wonderful person. Gianda and her mother ( Maria Luisa) do most of the cooking. Trust me, they know what they are doing! In addition to be a B+B, they also do dinners for larger groups, often on cruise line excisions. The property is very large.
We were very pleased with our large, very clean room. Gianda gave us a tour and some of the history of this beautiful villa, which was very interesting. They provided a really nice breakfast.
Overall, a wonderful stay. Highly recommended.
Below is a picture of a game hung on the wall. Obviously very old. They have no idea what is is or how to play it. Anyone out there have any idea??
