Ruhig gelegen, viel Natur, Bilderbuchblicke
Emanuela und Marco sind sehr herzliche und hilfsbereite Gastgeber.
Die Unterkunft war sehr sauber und mit allem ausgestattet, was wir brauchten. Wir haben uns total wohl gefühlt!
Im Garten durften wir Gemüse für den eigenen Gebrauch ernten, und in ihrem kleinen Hofladen konnten wir Wein, Olivenöl und Honig kaufen.
Unterhalb des Ortes Radicondoli war es idyllisch ruhig und in der Natur gelegen aber mit nur 5min Fußweg zum alten Ortskern, wo man kleine Geschäfte und Restaurants findet.
Tipp: die Terasse von La Pergola - Postkartenblick! - ohne Reservierung keine Chance!
Grazie, grazie, grazie.
