Nice place. Very good location. Nice pool and clean rooms. No wi-fi, no air condition, but when you keep windows closed, it's ok. Maria and Massimo were very helpful and kind. There is lot of building sites and they made noise and neighbors dogs barked during night times. We enjoyed our holiday anyway.
