Our family stayed for one evening and had a tremendous experience. Carmelo and Anna are the perfect hosts and we were warmly welcomed upon arrival. The stunning grounds and pool beckoned to us. This setting surpassed our expectations and our room was beautifully appointed, in short: we couldn't have been happier with our choice. We will definitely be returning to this magical spot.
My wife and I have unfortunately only booked one night. The owner has lovingly cared for us, prepared on the fly a very good tasting dinner and poured the perfect wine. I can "Riserva del Noce" thoroughly recommended.
