I had a very nice and pleasant stay with Matteo and Martina.
When I arrived, Matteo showed me around the house and made me feel very welcomed. The room and bathroom were perfect, clean and comfortable, with all the necessary amenities included.
Matteo and Martina are very friendly and welcoming hosts and breakfast was delicious as well!
I would recommend staying here to anyone.
We loved staying at Matteo's place. The house and room is very clean and comfortable. The bus to the city runs every 30 min so it's worth checking the time schedule before heading to the bus stop.
Communication with the host was super easy. I can certainly recommend this place
It was a great stay - very private! :-)
We had a bit of trouble on the way (coach delay) and arrived after 10 pm, which was not a problem for Martina and Matteo. We remained in phone contact where needed and left notes around the house as our daily schedules were completely out of synch.
The room is lovely and cozy, and there was breakfast waiting for us downstairs in the morning. Felt like staying at a friend's house!
We walked to the centre and back with no trouble.
Matteo & Martine are very nice and friendly. Even when we arrive at their home around 23:30, they still waiting for us.
Welcoming hosts, good communication. The location is a bit of of town and the bus isn't as regular as we'd have liked, but it's a fine area. The room itself is pretty basic, but the bed is comfy. Breakfast was really nice to have as well.
To improve the room, I'd recommend getting black out curtains which draw shut properly and adding a waste paper bin to the room, but these are minor things and we enjoyed our stay.
