This listing is located in the old, historic section of town and a bit of a challenge to find but very worthwhile -- just find the museum and the host will meet you there. Facility is nicely updated and spotless. Guests have the use of the breakfast room and an entertainment/living room on a different floor -- no problem with noise. You will need to climb quite a few steps. The hosts (we talked to Amadeo on the phone and met his wife and "assistant") were helpful and pleasant. Wonderful breakfast with homemade bread and cappuchinos in addition to the usual cheese, cured meats, cereal, yogurt and fruit. In a word -- charming! WiFi was not available in the room but was good in the dining area.
