“Marvellous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2007

Lovely setting near the temples. Beautifully restored building with antique furniture. Lovely gardens. Our room had its own conservatory, overlooked only by the trees. Food in the restaurant was some of the best in Italy, and we weer made to feel at home by the marvelous staff. Breakfast was fantastic. We wished that we could have stayed longer. When, after departure, we were stranded at the railway station due to a cancellation, they sent a taxi to rescue us

I travel to Europe quite a bit and am picky about hotels, this is hands-down the nicest place I have stayed in Italy. The bed and breakfast hotel is impeccably decorated, combining beautiful restoration with expensive antiques, and looks like a first rate interior decorator was brought in to create the look. Downstairs, there are two common rooms, both with wood burning fireplaces (lit in the evening), and comfortable couches. There is a sun-room and dining room, with a nice breakfast spread in the morning. The bedroom was also beautifully done, and the bathroom was spacious, immaculate and outfitted with quality fixtures. The shower was the best I have taken in Europe, a spacious glass enclosure with lots of hot water.
The hotel is optimally located within walking distance to the Greek temples, and we ate at two restaurants (one as fashionable and quirky as any in Napa Valley, an old farmhouse with modern art on the walls and travel books conveniently at the tables) and one local joint with excellent veal. Both were also walking distance to the hotel.
Service at the hotel was excellent. Regina, who lives on-site to handle guest needs, was very helpful and patient with us, despite our tendency to return late in the evening.
We were so happy here that we cancelled our following reservation to prolong our stay at il Granaio.
HIGHLY, highly recommend this place.

"Into the history, a step from the history", that is what I thought when I saw for the first time this hotel.
Once it was a silo and ten years ago has been completely restored. Now it has 14 beautiful and comfortable rooms all antiques furnished.
The owners are very friendy and the food is a surprise. You can have meals into a marvellous room looking the garden. Dishes have the typical and traditional Italian taste, cakes are simply delicious and everything is homemade, starting from the breakfast (really rich for a 3 stars rated hotel) to bread, they serve it warm!
If you ask for, you could sleep in one of the rooms looking at the Temples, in the evening when they are lighted there is such a magic atmosphere, the same you can breathe walking along the wall of the ancient city just opposite to the hotel.
