There is no better place on earth to sit, as the sun goes down, and eat some of the finest cooked local produce you will find anywhere. Vincenzo, Maria and their wonderful family are friendly and look after your every need. From a glass or ten of their wonderful, homemade lemonade after you've walked up from the road to a special 50th birthday cake and prossecco provided for my brother's birthday, they are "troppo gentile". The rooms are clean and comfortable and cleaned every day. And the food...I've written about in in the restaurant section but James Martin, Ginnaro Contaldo and others rate it some of the best food they've ever eaten and they're right. Everything except the fish is grown on the farm and the cured meats and cheese would grace a plate in a michelin starrred joint. pork from their own pigs, Vincenzos own wine which, as he promised, doesn't give you a headache as there are no sulphites or anything else nasty in it. I could go on and on and already have.
Thanks all, see you VERY soon.
