We stayed here for two nights as part of our Italian honeymoon. We are on a three week tour so have stayed in many different types of Italian accomodation from Venice to Naples. The hotel itself is lovely, clean and quirky. Although Paolo doesn't speak English he gives it a go and his receptionist/waitress/girl Friday speaks very good English. They were friendly, welcoming and very accomodating. The room was large, lovely, clean and decoated to a nice standard. The shower was an experience, with jets from every direction, a blue light and a radio. The pool was clean and cool but could have done with sun loungers rather than deck chairs around it. Breakfast was what we have come to expect from small Italian residences i.e coffee (very nice and any way your heart desires it), coissant, cheese, meat, toast and cookies (really, everywhere we go). It also came with the best fresh juice we've had in Italy so far. Paolo and his assistant couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. It was nice to stay in the peace of the countryside after visiting so many city destinations. There were other couples staying at the hotel while we were there and some with 6-8yr olds. The pool was safe for the children and there was also a ping pong table in a shaded area for them to play with. I would recommend this hotel and wouldstay there again.
Be warned...the trattoria that is attached to the hotel serves nice enough food although (we've had better in Italy) but will take your eyes out. It is VERY expensive for what you get. 7euros for an average tasting tomato soup was a bit of a shock and although we thought we asked for 8.50euro grilled beef we were served (and paid for) 22euro steaks. Yikes!
