“delightful apartment in a villa in a wonderful, peaceful and picturesque location”
Reviewed 31 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Very helpful and friendly owners who took a great deal of trouble to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. The apartment is delightful - a great deal of thought has gone into making it different, comfortable and attractive. The sun terrace overlooking the valley and up to the hill village was great: to dine, relax and to look out at the birds and, on one night, the fireworks up on the hill. There is an excellent restaurant within 5 mins at an agriturismo - again, very friendly and helpful owners and local clients who are keen to be friendlyl. We also had the benefit of a local festival on our arrival night. The location is very peaceful but within a few mintes of very interesting hill towns. The beach is further away but is easily drivable for a day trip. The Adriatic coast nearby has both touristic higher density locations and unspoilt sections of beach - look out for small sections of off road parking on the coast road south to find where locals go.
