We struggled to find the guest house, as the roads are very winding and confusing, but the owner was waiting for us outside as we pulled up, and welcomed us like long - lost family. Francesca and Allessandro could not have been friendlier and happier to help in any way they can. Our room was spotless, some embroidery touches on the pillows by Francesca, and even a mini - bar. Allessandro speaks (a little) English, and Francesca none, but that did not stop them from chatting and telling us where we could go to see the best places in the surrounding areas. Alessandro simply quickly Google Translated if he got stuck, and even telephoned his son - in London - to help with an explanation. Breakfast was Continental, as expected, and we felt quite bad to refuse the home - made chocolate and cream cake that we were offered. For our English - breakfast tastes, it was too rich. The absolute only downside to this guesthouse is that it is very difficult to find, and it is essential to have a GPS.
