Truly wonderful place with a fantastic host, Doctor Mario the owner.
Each room offer something special (an amazing view, the scent of the orange trees,...)
The chef will prepare you the dish you want. They even traveled 70km to go buy fresh vongole (Spaghetti a la Vongole) and 2

Deat Guest, Thank you so much for your nice comment comment. The property , that was of my grand father , is in the country and is so expensive to have internet in 100.000 mt2 of land :in fact the signal come via radio and not via a cable. This is the " side effect" of the " spectacular landscape". :) Really we are a B&B and the restaurant was hosted in our bulding but was managed by others that know moved abroad. We are looking for another chef , but is not easy to found a good one . Thanks again for choosing us and for your lovelly rewiew. Mario
