B&B Iris, Laterza (TA)

b&b Iris

The B & B is located in Laterza (TA) in the heart of the historic center of this delightful town, in a picturesque frame of houses of the old village.

The family-run guest house offers a friendly and attentive welcome to every customer's needs.

Rooms worthy of praise, as well as all the environment furnished with elegance and sobriety. Excellent cleanliness.

Among other things, the advantage of the B & B is its "strategic" location just a few kilometers from Matera, Alberobello and Polignano a mare.

We would like to thank the owner of the B&B: extremely friendly, attentive to every need: from breakfast, to parking, to directions.

Strongly recommended!

Natura e Cavallo, Santa Severa (RM)

Natura e Cavallo Santa SeveraA splendid farm, situated in the southern part of the Monti della Tolfa, in the valley of the river Rio, one of the areas most evocative of this territory for the typical landscapes that the Maremma Tolfetana offers its visitors.

There are different types of accommodation that the structure offers. You can choose, in fact, to stay in the delightful rooms located on the upper floor of the rustic farmhouse that represents the "center-engine" of the entire structure or opt for those that are called by the property "Le Casette", located in the area adjacent to the farmhouse. The lodges are no more than the very comfortable and spacious bungalows made of wood and equipped with bathroom and air conditioning. They, between the various comfort are equipped with a cooking hob.

Wonderful the whole area surrounding the structure consisting of land of unmeasured extension forest and the typical Mediterranean vegetation interspersed with pastures brady of cattle and horses of the Maremma.

For lovers of riding we remind, inside the structure, a charming horse center.

Nature and horses is located in Santa Severa at Km 3 of the Provincial Road S. Severa-Tolfa.

Hotel Rosa, San Marino, Repubblica di San Marino

Hotel Rosa San Marino

In the old part of San Marino, this delightful hotel is managed with authentic professionalism, thanks to a long tradition in the business. An historic property, strategically located and panoramic, at the foot of the first tower, close to the ancient walls and overlooking the splendid Montefeltro valleys. Ideal place for those who want to stay in San Marino a few days without wanting to give up all the comforts but at absolutely affordable prices.

Courtesy of staff and property was very much appreciated. Unmistakably welcoming rooms, all furnished and refurbished recently, with parquet floors and charming details.

The breakfast buffet in the morning is very abundant and fresh produced (to mention the homemade cakes!); you can choose from sweet to salty in a wide choice of greediness.

The property has free parking (indoor or outdoor). However, it is necessary to remember that in the historic center you can enter or leave your car from 19:00 until 10:00 in the morning; In fact, during the day access is prohibited to vehicles and the area is pedestrian-only. Alternatively, if you need constant use of the car, we point out that only 150 meters away from the Rosa hotel there are two large outdoor parking spaces (the P6 and the P7) where you can park your car, accessing a special tariff, reserved for guests of the property.

Hotel Rosa is located in San Marino at 23, Via Lapicidi Marini

Hotel Amalfi, Amalfi (SA)


A few steps away from the Duomo, in a historic building, in the heart of Amalfi, this charming and comfortable family-run hotel is located.

Very enjoyable breakfast served outdoors, on the panoramic terrace owned by the hotel on the fifth floor. From this lovely location you can admire the splendid Arabic-Norman belltower. In addition to the view, great food and a wide choice of sweet and savory dishes.

One of the few hotel complexes in the historic center of Amalfi which provides guests with functional and convenient parking facilities (paid parking).

Staff very helpful and kind. Excellent location for those who decide to spend a few days relaxing in Amalfi: everything is within easy reach (from the monuments to the beaches).

A tip: if you can book for a long time, you may be required to stay in one of the rooms overlooking the alleys of ancient Amalfi, from where you can admire an extremely suggestive scenario bringing you to the past of the Amalfi republic.

Superior rooms are very interesting.

Hotel Abbazia San Pietro in Valle, Ferentillo (Terni)

abbazia san pietro in valleA gorgeous hotel set in an ancient abbey of Valnerina surrounded by forests. It is, in fact, an ancient monastery that has been used as a hotel.

Staying in your home is truly impressive: the surrounding landscape and architecture suddenly brings you into the twelfth century but without giving up the best comforts. The rooms are small treasures of the time: all are air-conditioned, equipped with satellite TV and wi-fi ... all comfort, evolved but well-harmonized and "embedded" among extraordinary vaulted ceilings of the XII Century, period furniture and beautiful fireplaces.

Do not miss the magnificent panoramic garden, furnished with tables and chairs: healthy relaxation immersed in the green for millennium square meters! This garden was the old market where monks were treating goods with strangers. One of the most fascinating portions of the Monastery, whose view stretches over Valnerina and its majestic views of the medieval village of Umbria.
This property is definitely an ideal location for an itinerary like ours, located in Ferentillo (province of Terni) between the town of Spoleto and the Marmore Falls.

Adorable staff, always available to meet the needs of the guests. The breakfast in the morning was very good: abundant and quality. Ample parking. Room cleanliness and setup: excellent.
