We stayed 3 nights at this place. Our experience was probably a bit different from the usual as the owner and wife were away as the wife was giving birth. This means that we were looked after by the brother who actually lived 30 minutes away. Prior to arrival, we phoned the place saying that we'd arrive between 14:00 and 15:00. So at 14:00 on the given day, we are at the door and no answer. I had to call and the brother's owner said he was on his way and that he'd be with us in 15 minutes (which means 30 minutes in Italy). Not very impressed to have had to wait 30 minutes at the door while I made the effort to give an arrival time. Anyhow, the brother was very nice.
The B&B was really good. Nice and clean room. The private balcony is a real highlight. The room was cleaned every day. Good bathroom.
The breakfast is good too.
Again because there was nobody in the B&B apart from at breakfast time, it meant that in case of issues, you couldn't ask anyone. Example: the coffee machine didn't work on the day we arrived so we were not able to make a coffee. There was no more milk n the coffee machine. Also, the air con unit was a bit noisy (even when off) and it would have been nice to ask someone about it.
I think the negative points I've made are due to the fact that the owner was away. The B&B has many good points. The location is great and the price is fair.
