My husband and I stayed at Casa di Mina at the end of May and it was a great choice. as everyone has stated rooms are clean, elegantly decorated without losing the sense of its origin and the city it resides in. Lynda and Francesco are friendly and happy to help where they can, the restaurant they recommended to us - 'La Terrazza del Principe' was a short leafy stroll and we enjoyed it so much we went back again!
the city center is a short bus 11 ride away, buy your bus tickets at any tobacconist store or the Poggio cafe near the B&B- remember it only is valid for an hour and a half from when you scan it in the bus. otherwise you can walk if you don't mind.
the B&B is located in a leafy and quiet area, the road it faces is a 'main' road and even though we heard the cars they were not a big thing especially as u always heard birds through out the day.
all rooms are as you see them on the site and the junior suite has its own en suite- although we personally thought the other bigger bathroom had more charm due to is tap, handle fittings etc which we felt fitted the Italian villa much more.
we would definitely stay here again and recommend it to other travelers- particularly if you want to pamper yourself with a real double/ queen bed- rather than twin bed pushed together, a spacious room to relax in, beautiful gardens and yummy breakfast.
