    Rob and Christina are charming hosts. Their breakfasts are terrific. The location is near the castle. The only negative is that our bathroom was not en suite. The price was very reasonable, and our room was very charming. You will be happy you stayed here.

    Sorry, can't help with that, we only went to Sicily and flew from UK then hired car there. Question seems to be directed to the wrong person.
