We had a wonderful week at Casa Cordino.
The views from the property, especially the pool, are stunning. The Casa is a few KM up a white (gravel) road but don't worry, the road is in good condition and a normal car is fine. The climb up the road means plenty of peace and quiet though, making it all too easy to nod off by the pool.
Inside, the apartment is spotlessly clean, nicely furnished and well equipped. We never got round to using the lounge though, as the front terrace is perfect for watching the sun dip behind the mountains with a cold beer or glass of wine.
Finally, we'd recommend the Monday evening wine tasting and meal at I Girasoli di Sant'Andrea which is about 10 minutes drive away.
We were delighted with the apartment at Casa Cordino. The location was beautiful and at long last we had found a property where we could sit on our terrace eating breakfast in the early morning sun and by moving to another private terrace, also bask in the evening sun.
There are plenty of interesting places to visit within an easy drive and local rural walks from the apartment.
The apartment was comfortable, very clean and thoughtfully equipped, with little extras that made life easier such as a hairdryer, cool bags and a welcome pack in the 'fridge. There was a well organised local information folder and Tricia and Nick were very friendly and helpful in sharing their local knowledge.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this property.
