We stayed at Monte Oliveto in September of this year, we had an absolutely amazing time and could not fault our time spent at the B&B. Donatella was a fantastic host, and nothing was ever too much. The breakfast was delicious and provided a range of foods to suit all tastes. Donatella was always more than happy to recommend places...

Breakfast (colazione) is steps above the norm with a true emphasis on fresh. Knowing I prefer to limit wheat in my foods, the hostess made a wheatless cake especially...
