Siamo rimasti molto soddisfatti del nostro soggiorno. Il B&B è molto grazioso, in una frazione leggermente fuori Limite da cui si gode di un bel panorama. Alessandro è un ottimo gestore e ci ha consigliato molto bene cosa vedere nei dintorni. Ottima colazione!

PRO Alessandro è stato molto cordiale. Ci ha permesso di parcheggiare le moto in una zona coperta, e la comunicazione con lui è stata super semplice. La colazione, richiesta in anticipo per questioni organizzative, è stata ottima ed abbondante, servita su dei tavolini all'esterno. La piscina piccola ma perfettamente utile al relax atteso. Inoltre sono presenti due lettini+ombrellone riservati ad ogni camera della struttura. In camera è presente anche una sorta di manuale con consigli su cosa vedere e dove mangiare in zona. Inoltre in camera erano presenti asciugamani per la doccia, e telo mare + accappatoio per la piscina, tutti incelofanati singolarmente. CONS Il letto matrimoniale è composto (come spesso accade) da due singoli, quindi meno comodo. La TV in camera, per quanto non indispensabile, davvero piccola (probabilmente un 14"). La rete WiFi piuttosto lenta, ma a meno di non doverla usare per lavoro, è funzionale all'uso di WhatsApp e simili.

The answer from the host:
Salve Fabio, grazie per la tua recensione. Ho preso atto dei tuoi consigli e abbiamo cambiato tutti i materassi mettendo anche il topper per dare ancora più comfort ai nostri letti, inoltre abbiamo migliorato la linea wifi e cambiato tutte le televisioni mettendo smart tv a 32 pollici. Spero di poterti ospitare e avere un tuo parere. A presto. Alessandro
