We stayed at San Nicolo after a very busy period in our lives and this place offered us a haven beyond our imaginations. From lazy afternoons on the swing seat to breakfast on the patio we felt thoroughly at home and were thrilled to drink in the incredible scenery from all angles. The house was stocked with everything we could hope for and we made particularly good use of Martin's book of Circular walks in the local area, we won't be forgetting the meticulousness of his instructions in a hurry! Thank you for an unforgettable week celebrating a landmark birthday.
As you drive up and up the hill/mountain to San Nicolo the views are jaw-droppingly beautiful and remain so when you reach the house. Although not isolated the sense of peace and privacy is overwhelming and very relaxing. Everything about the house was well thought out and ensured that we had one of the best family holidays yet. Many thanks to Katarina for waiting for us and showing us around.
