caterina is an excellent hostess. this apartment is the entire 2nd floor (2 floors up from ground floor) of the familys flooring business. they live on the 1st floor and are always available whenever you need anything.
caterina speaks english well and was able to help us find many things to do. during our 3 nights, we visted all of the top 3 restaurants from tripadvisor (one of which is literally across the street from the property). her friend happens to own the #1 and she took us up and introduced us, took us on a tour of a little known church in the area and bought a couple rounds of prosecco (italian champaigne) to get the evening started.
i was nervous about the home. seems very inexpensive and there were very few photos. the one that was there showing the view seemed like a stock photo of the 'area'. well... don't worry, the view photo is out your kitchen window, you have an enormous deck and 3 full-sized bedrooms and dining and living and kitchen and separate laundry room. it's enormous by european standards (and very large by american standards even). i liked the quirky decor. it's not a palace and not recently updated, but it's very authentic with a great location and views and a TREMENDOUS value.
