Our family [2+2 (15,12)] stayed 6 days at Al Gelso (gelsomino apartment) in the end of march 2013.
Irene Chiara and Dory were truly amazing & the hospitality was perfect.
they helped us in everything we asked. gave us very usefull recommendations for great restaurants a short distance away, explained to us patiently about sites and supplied us with maps.
The apartment was beautiful with a well equipped kitchen, a cozy living room, a wonderful terrace, two beautiful and spacious rooms with two bathrooms and showers. There is an excellent barbecue we also used.
In a short drive there are nice supermarkets.
The place itself stunning beauty. The view is breathtaking.
Excellent location and reasonable distance from major tourist sites, allow making daily trips to beautiful places.
Thanks to the wonderful staff for a great experience.
