5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
We stayed here when our original accommodations fell thru. It was a blessing in disguise! Giuseppe the 5th generation owner of this magnificent property surrounded by olive and orange trees gave a a glass of wine and a tour of the old wine making facilities. The property was built in 1810 and is still very functional. Besides wine for sale they offer olive oil, and the most amazing sun dried tomatoes, marmalade’s and tapenades for purchase. Awesome breakfast. We plan to come back again in springtime!

Gorgeous building with lots of character, great room and very friendly and helpful staff. The only thing that needs to be improved is the shower - I didn't dare soap my hair because I didn't believe the luke-warm trickle that came out of the shower head would ever wash it off.

Very nice property but not a lot of amenities for the price. One thing that disappointed me the room does not have potable water yet they charge for water in the mini bar. If I am wrong about this then they need to communicate this better. Luckily we had some water with us. The lady who helped us was very sweet.

An excellent night!
We were welcomed warmly to the property for our 1 night stay. The room was cosy and beautifully clean. The breakfast was great and we had a lovely walk around the grounds. We also had a private wine tasting and bought some of their wine as it was delicious! We’d definitely stay again.
