    Wir waren 4 Tage zu Gast an diesem wundervollen Ort. Alles hat uns gefallen. Das Zimmer und das Bad war sauber und geräumig. Zum Abendessen gab es jeden Tag neue und leckere Spezialitäten aus der Cilento-Küche, sehr schön angerichtet und mit Liebe zubereitet.

    Von dieser Location aus kann man viele schöne Ausflüge und Wanderungen machen. Danach lockt das Bad im grosszügigen Pool.
    Die Aussicht ist fantastisch und die Ruhe traumhaft.
    Der Besitzer ist sehr sympathisch und nett.

    Gerne empfehlen wir diese Unterkunft weiter.

    "Fantastic location, best food, perfect host"

    09/23/2018

    This accommodation was rightly recommended (Peter Amann travel knowhow)! The panorama is unsurpassable, the terrain is huge, as is the pool. There's even a kiddie pool and a playground - perfect for families. Also mountain bikes are available. Our room with bathroom in the new building was also very large, everything super clean and spotless, also the fast wireless internet. For breakfast there was also fresh bread with olive oil, cheese, sausage, fruit and homemade cakes! The multi-course dinner (half board!) From local ingredients was delicious and varied - on request also vegetarian! The very attentive host speaks good English.

    "Regina reigns hospitality."

    A few weeks ago we met by chance to call this place for a sudden night out and I must say that we were super happy. Although arrived a bit 'late-we are from Naples, but when we booked we were in the province of Caserta and we did not realize the distance- they were very hospitable: the girl, whose name I do not remember, made us kindly to accommodate making us enjoy a dinner rich in homemade flavors, from appetizers to desserts, as well as the abundant breakfast buffet and the tasty lunch the following day; the manager, Gianpiero, courteous and available as few, he immediately presented himself nicely, he then accompanied us to the room, spacious and clean, he immediately explained two or three things ... the rest? Everything at our disposal to relax! .... all in a very good price for sleeping, having used the pool with full board! So you run a farm, the place par excellence where people go to unplug from the stressed days, to be pampered, to eat well and find themselves at home with friends!
