My Husband & I stayed here for one night en route to Rome.
There is a driveway up to this property and the surrounding land is also used as a camping site (there was just one caravan there whilst we were there).
The reception area is small and Marino lives at the back of the property so he likes to be notified of the time of arrival.
We were allocated room no 1, ground level, beside reception. Only negative about this location was the fact that Marino obviously leaves the radio on in reception and we could hear it before going to sleep, so we just turned down the volume ourselves. No drama, easily resolved! (Perhaps other people may not be so sensitive to it).
The bedroom and en-suite was extremely modern and clean. It was all kept to a very high standard, I would even say it was better than some 4* Hotels that I've been in. Its obvious that Marino prides himself in maintaining a very high standard throughout.
(Note: Unfortunately, there is no WiFi here so we had to use roaming as we needed to book our flight, so that was a pity.)
We walked to the near by town for our evening meal, took about 10-15 minutes. (We had been dropped off by friends, therefore I'd imagine one would need a car if staying here as its quite limited with choices within walking distance.)
Next morning, we had a cold buffet with coffee of our choice. So there was no cooked breakfast, perhaps because he does not live on the property.
We needed to get to the airport to fly to Rome so we paid EUR10 to transport us there (I think my husband gave him more, can't remember how much).
In conclusion, if you are looking for a B&B maintained to a high standard with a friendly host, away from the hub of things, in a WiFi free area, then this is the place for you. I would have no hesitation in recommending it.
We were just sorry that we did not have more time to stay there and relax.
