Our family booked several apartments at "il Sapito" in late May, 2006. The staff, Claudia in particular, were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had a good time.
In addition to staying in the apartments we also went on a wine tasting dinner at one of their other properties (also beautiful) and had a group dinner at their facility called "il Brigante". The wine, food and atmosphere were excellent. Claudia also took our small group on a guided hike of the farm and surrounding areas. Our entire experience at "il Sapito" was wonderful. I cannot recommend it enough.
"il Sapito" is an apartment rental in the country, not a 5 star luxury hotel with 24 hour concierge and bell hop staff. You do have to look after yourself a little bit which is normal for this kind of rental. With that said, the level of accomodation and the location combined with the friendly staff and great price makes "il Sapito" a fantastic choice for 95% of travellers. My wife and I and our family have travelled extensively in Europe and we will stay here again. Bellissima!
