I loved this B&B... The view from the balcony is beautiful! You can see the stars at night and hear the sound of the ocean. It's big enough for a big family like mine to enjoy in a very modern yet authentic Italian atmosphere. The people working there are absolutely amazing, sooo funny and will help you with anything!
