Un enorme grazie a tutti voi che avete dedicato tempo per scrivere queste splendide recensioni nel nostro libro degli ospiti, significa molto per me sapere che avete apprezzato il vostro soggiorno a Montenero e vi siete portati a casa dei bei ricordi.


"We have had a wonderful stay. The apartment looked very nice, the swimming pool was great and so was the garden. Carol and Antonio were very nice company and they made us feel more than at home, providing us with many ideas and tips for sight seeing. Surely a beautiful and comfortable B&B, on a very quiet, yet central location."
Merlijn & Ellis - Netherlands

"Carol and Antonio gave us a really warm welcome. The accommodation was very charming and cosy (the bed in particular was really comfy). Loads to see in the surrounding area and all in all we had a fabulous time."

"Dear Carol & Family, thank you very much for the great and unforgettable time with you! You have the most wonderful home with the most beautiful view. We had perfect days in this great accommodation. These began with a lovingly prepared breakfast and could be perfectly arranged because of the beautiful tips from Carol. Both the recommendations for visiting nearby cities, sights and museums and the restaurant tips were an absolute hit! There is so much to see here that we would have loved to stay longer and will definitely come back again. Thank you for showing us a wonderful part of Umbria! All the best."

"Dear Carol,
a huge GRAZIE MILLE from the Bottom of our hearts! We needed to relax after intense days, weeks and even months: you gave us much more than that. After less than half a day here, we thought we’d been here for three weeks! You’re such a wonderful, friendly and caring hostess – and this place is so beautiful, well kept, inspiring and peaceful. You know we have a special relationship with Ireland and the Irish people, this stay for us was yet another evidence that you cherish a special, unique quality of hospitality."
Joëlle and Pierre Emmanuel - Belgium

All the best for you and your family.”

"Dear Carol Antonio and family, when we arrived at San Giovanni di Montenero we were overwhelmed by the stunning scenery, the sound of silence and the instant hospitality and kindness of Carol. We came here to recover and we absolutely did! The house is fabulous, breakfast are like a film set, the food is delicious and irresistible. Of course we don’t want to leave at all… but we take home warm memories of a place full of hurtfulness, friendliness and love for nature. Thank you for all this beauty, we feel privileged. Xxx”
Michel & Marcia - Germany


"…So we’ve had a nice time
and we’ll leave you a line
You're quiet spot on the hill
Is a great place to chill
A pool with a view to cool off in
we'll do our breakfasts at nine
We’re not always on time
Then laze in the shade
Tea and cakes all home-made
Out in the evening for a very nice dinner
Or stay at the house - the food here’s a winner
Antonio and Carol are wonderful hosts
a welcoming couple and we offer their toast…
Many many thanks for a fabulous laid-back holiday"
Dawn and Andrew xx - UK

"Cari Carol e Antonio, se il lusso è la cura dell’ospite, quello che abbiamo vissuto in questi giorni e super lusso. Le vostre attenzioni, le cure, le colazioni ricche e belle a guardarsi, il pane e le torte fatte in casa senza glutine per accontentare un ospite celiaco, le vostre discrete presenze ma sempre attenta e caloroso, i tanti consigli per valorizzare le ricchezze del vostro territorio. Uno di questi, la cantina della famiglia legata alla vostra casa Terre Margaritelli, ha creato un fil rouge che può sembrare casuale, ma anche il segno che sei nel posto giusto giusto al momento giusto.
Grazie per aver deciso di destinare questa porzione della vostra casa all’accoglienza degli ospiti. Ci auguriamo che la vita ci porti ancora ad approfittarne in futuro. Tanto bene!"
Raffaella e Matteo -Italy

"Dear Carol and family, thank you so much for the absolutely amazing stay. We are both so sad we're only here for two nights. You have such a magical place and such kind and welcoming personalities. It's been such a special experience for us and many thanks for finding such amazing restaurants for us! The food and ambience were perfect. We will definitely be back! All the best!
P.S. And thanks again for sharing what you do your ceramics are gorgeous."
Caroline and Christopher - Denmark/USA

"A Carol e famiglia, grazie per questo tempo breve ma meraviglioso, fatto di amore ed attenzione nonché preziosi consigli. In tutta la vostra casa si sente la passione per le cose belle, capaci di ristorare il cuore e l’anima di chi ci passa. Sperando non sia l’ultima occasione per vedersi."
Federica e Alberto - Italy

"Dear Carol and Antonio and kids we don't know where to start, you made our stay so perfect! This was our first B&B experience and we're sure nobody can top this! Thank you so much for all your kindness, the lovely breakfast and the amazing meals! We couldn’t ask for more. All of your tips were so nice and welcome, we had the best days here and we can’t wait to receive the beautiful handmade vase you’re gonna make for us. We are sad that our holiday at your beautiful house came to an end. We would love to visit your B&B again, so this is not a goodbye but I’ll see you later!
Love Yai and Marleen from the Netherlands."


"Dear Carol and Antonio and family and Jack,
where to start, we've had the most wonderful stay in your beautiful home, everything was perfect.
Thank you for the fantastic food, all the suggestions on where to visit and for the chats which I
love Carol. We will keep in touch and hope to come again, if you’re ever in Bratislava… xxx"
Love Hilary and Tony


"Dear Carol, you must be so proud of all the skills you have! You're an amazing chef (we can tell from the most delicious birthday cakes you made us), a wonderful artist, a great decorator (the B&B is just perfect), a passionate gardener and without a doubt a loving mother. We loved every single minute of our stay. This area is so full of history and the surrounding hills are unspoilt, but this B&B and its owners are the cherry on the cake (can’t stop thinking of cakes right now). Please keep up the great work, we might make it a yearly birthday thing!"
Viooltje and Geert - Belgium

"Dear Carol and family, thanks for having us in your fabulous house! We've had an amazing time here; lovely dinners and breakfast, good company and last but not least: Jack <3.
We will always remember you because of the beautiful ceramic plate we take home.
See you again here! Kind regards"
Annamieke and Erwin- Netherlands

"Dear Carol Antonio and family, we just had the best honeymoon we could imagine! Thank you for your hospitality, the amazing breakfast and the great recommendations for lunch, dinners, sites to see. Also thank you for the amazing four course dinner, (OMG! incredible) that was fantastic (one day Carol you need to give me the secret for the tiramisu!) We felt like at home and we are sorry to leave. You have made a lovely home and we hope we can come back one day, maybe for our first anniversary, who knows?
P.S.: Thank you Francesco for taking care of us on Friday night. If you come to Madrid please let us know!"
Love Rachel and Anthony - Spain

"Dear Carol and family, Thank you for being so welcoming and hospitable during our stay. We really wish we had the chance to get to know you better but our ships were passing and very busy. Thank you for the wonderful breakfasts each morning and going out of your way to be helpful. We will never forgettour wine tour at Terre Margaritelli and meeting the friendly Federico and stuff was truly special."

"We have absolutely loved everything about our stay. Thank you so much for your generous hospitality and for all your lovely family making us feel so welcome. From the fantastic breakfasts, the suggestions on places to visit and eat (including the easy to follow directions), the beautiful ceramics and the two best evening meals of our stay. Not forgetting the fantastic pool and of course the infamous Jack! Looking forward to coming back again soon. Ci siamo divertiti! Grazie mille"
