My nephew and I spent four wonderful days in Tavullia and could not have asked for a better experience than we had at B&B Il Giardino! Raffaella welcomed us with open arms and far exceeded our expectations with her amazing hospitality! Upon our arrival, she showed us to our spacious and comfortable accommodations (the bright and cheery sunflower room and our own private bath) and then acted as our personal travel guide, providing us with maps, brochures, and commentary on the many sites to see in the area. This was so very helpful and appreciated! Each morning we were treated to an abundant and delicious homemade breakfast of meats, breads, jams, pastries, cereals, juices and coffee--more than we could possibly eat--served outdoors in the garden! We were there on my birthday and Raffaella gave me the royal treatment--along with a jar of her homemade fruit preserves. Our room and bathroom were cleaned each day and fresh linens were provided. The value cannot be beat! The location is ideal--close to civilization, but remote enough for much needed peace and quiet. I so enjoyed waking to the sound of the birds each morning and hearing the church bells each hour; I LOVED the pastoral views from our bedroom window and from the garden. Il Giardino was the ideal retreat and Raffaella was the perfect hostess--now friend! We were not ready to leave when the time came to depart. I look forward to returning for another visit in the future!!
