“Nice and beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013 via mobile

I stayed with my family. Very nice rooms and the owners were warm and nice but very poor English. Breakfast was Italian -don't expect rich one. If you visit the area I recommend this B&B. Was quiet hard to find at first time. Plenty of area around to relaxes and to eat

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2011

We booked to stay at this property for 3 nights, however when we arrived it was if we had arrived at someone’s private residence (who doesn’t run a B&B) as we were greeted by general confusion as to why we were there and what we wanted. After we established our booking name they advised we would need to wait a few minutes.

After a several minutes another lady arrived (who spoke no English and our Italian was only basic) she advised us to follow her in our car. She led us a couple of 2.5 km’s further out of town up the road to a completely different property. Where she then confirmed the price and expected cash payment, as we didn’t happen to have close to 200 Euros on us, she took our passport and advised we should pay tomorrow back at the original B&B.

The place we were given was an older 2 bedroom house which was nothing like the B&B that we booked as there was no air conditioning and no breakfast. The beds were extremely uncomfortable, the worst I had attempted to sleep on the whole trip (and we had already spent a month in Italy and had spent half our trip camping!). The house was also riddled with mosquitoes, strangely mid way through the first night a bottle of inspect repellant appeared outside the front door although no one knocked or advised that it was officially for us.

I would say we made the best of the house and used the kitchen, washing machine (as I mentioned we had also been camping so we had our own cooking utensils, washing power etc) and from the outside for the brief moments we actually spent at la casetta dei sogni d'oro it looked pleasant although we saw no other guests. However at the end of the day we were taken away to a completely property with no explanation and I don’t think this is acceptable. So when you book at la casetta dei sogni d'oro you don’t always get to stay there. Upon reading the other bad Trip Advisor reviews it appears we weren’t the only people that this has happened too.
