"A little slice of heaven atop a hill in the Italian countryside." I stayed here as part of a press trip, visiting the area to sample its shopping delights. I only needed somewhere to stay as a base, as we were out and about for most of the days and evenings, but the apartment was one of the highlights of my stay! Full of authentic Italian rustic charm, it was a cool and peaceful place to retreat to and within an easy stroll of the beautiful town of Sant'Angelo in Pontano, with its cute coffee shops and restaurants. I loved listening to locals chattering in the shade of the stairwells and found it a very safe, welcoming place to stay, even as a long single traveller. I have very fond memories of my visit and of this luxurious apartment in particular, and hope very much to return some day. H.S.
