First let me say I was nervous about booking here as it had no reviews....I am so glad I took a leap of faith! AMAZING! Need I say more? The location was incredibly beautiful with views I could only dream of. Fruit trees everywhere, I have never eaten so many figs, pears, apples, berries, grapes, plums, etc....the house is incredibly charming and served as a perfect base for us to come home to after exploring the countryside. Ron and Alejandro were so incredible and helpful with anything we could have needed. When we arrived there was everything we needed for breakfast the next morning waiting for us....bread, cheese, wine, coffee, juice, sugar, milk, and fruit. The castello was steps from our doorstep and we even had wine and cheese on the rooftop as the sun was setting. This location gets very high remarks in our book, we can not wait to return!!
