Spent two nights touring the area. The staff was friendly, the rooms clean and the meals good. Breakfast was included and was excellent. In addition to typical Italian coffee they had Cafe Americano which was like I drink in America. I'd stay here again.

we were here for 2 weeks with six people. This was really one of the best experiences we have had over our many years of travelling. Food here is beyond imagination. Typical Itaian (puglian )food.
