The Antiche Melodie is a tiny B&B with only 3 double rooms, but these rooms are beautiful - decorated and furnished with care. Adriano and Grazia welcome you as if you are already friends and make your stay comfortable, memorable and very, very pleasant. The B&B is located in the little hill-town of La Morra, almost opposite the best restaurant in town with free parking available within about 50 meters.
Adriano speaks a fair amount of English and is very patient with those of us who speak no Italien. He recommended day trips and local walks, booked restaurants and arranged a visit to a cantina for wine tasting for us. (He also offered us mountain bikes but the hills looked too steep...). Breakfast is a generous buffet of breads, cheeses, cold meats, fruit, yogurt, croissants..... plus a boiled egg and we found it impossible to do justice to it. We had booked for 4 nights but liked it so much that we stayed for 6.
We booked directly - search for Antiche Melodie and you'll find them.
