We stayed here for 2 nights in May with our 3 1/2 year old daughter and absolutely enjoyed it. It was relaxing, quiet, and just what we needed after traveling in the big cities. The farmhouse apartment is perfect for a family and they even made a little cot for our daughter to sleep on. There is a fridge for items and also a stove for cooking, but why cook, when you can enjoy the amazing restaurant and Chef James (as we called him) and his staff. Our meal here was phenomenal and we enjoyed every bite of each dish we were served! We are still enjoying our olive oil we purchased from the restaurant and have tried to duplicate many of the antipasta here back home. Nonna Ciana is fabulous as well! She is so loving and caring...and wanted to make sure we had everything we needed. The breakfast in the am is fresh and great as well. I highly recommend a car if you stay here. It just makes it that much easier since it is in the countryside and allows you to see more of the landscape, etc. We will definitely tell others about this hidden gem...and HIGHLY SUGGEST YOU EAT here on your trip! Sending hugs to Nonna Ciana and family. Our daughter really enjoyed playing with the soccer balls outside as well! We hope to see you again soon. Until then, thank you so much for a fabulous stay!!
