A breath of fresh air away from Rome and a great stay before flying home. Modern rooms, wonderful staff and great breakfast. Wonderful balcony over looking the coast and excellent restaurants are close by in the marina.

The rooms I saw were both lovely and of good size. I'd recommend telling the staff that this is an anniversary trip and ask for a large room.
