We stayed at Brentina for a week. We stayed in the house that's on one floor and in hindsight I wish I'd booked the house on 2 levels but that's just my preference. It was a bit dark and no nets over the windows so hard to keep windows open without flying visitors.The house had everything you would need for cooking and making coffee. It also has a washing machine on site. The bedding and house was very clean but you are in the middle of the country side so expect the odd spider!
I was not prepared for the amount of Mosquitos though so day 2 we all had a few bites! But after a visit to the super market we bought candles and sprays which helped a lot. The staff are wonderful very friendly and helpful. The little shop at reception is lovely. It sell wonderful bread, olive oil, pasta, juice, milk and the most amazing pasta sauces. Be prepared for a long dirt track to take you to your house but when you get there it's all worth it. My boys enjoyed the Ping pong table more than the pool!
Perfect stay if you want a rustic peaceful holiday.
