Lorenzo is the perfect host. We only spent one night at his place but wanted to stay much longer. He stayed up late to take care of us and so that we could get to know each other. He also got up early to make sure we got something good to eat and had good directions. The room was a private little cottage that was extremely comfortable, and spacious. Lorenzo's place is in the countryside and is quite beautiful. We would love to stay there again. Also, if you love food, we recommend eating at the restaurant at Lorenzo's. The food was amazing and most of it was grown by Lorenzo's family. If we would have had room in our bags we would have bought all of the pear preserves that he had!!
La contea degli angeli e' piu' di un agriturismo: e' un oasi di serenita' gestita da persona gentili e accoglienti, a pochi chilometri da luoghi ricchi di storia e di bellezze naturali. Andateci, non ve ne pentirete. Ettore
