The maximum if not more, beautiful place with beautiful apartments to say the least. Clean and with perfumed linen; well maintained with a very well kept swimming pool. The kindness of the owner Antonio is king, available on everything. The most beautiful experience was to take us with him into the woods to look for truffles with his dog Patty. My son was very happy. We will definitely be back
