It was a very beautiful and comfortable place. Ms Ernestina (the owner) was really kind and welcoming with us, we had a great dinner together :) We had all we needed and no problems. The area is very nice and peacefulI, 20min away from the seaside. 100% recommended it!

Excellent accommodation. Our experience at Villa Ernestina was very satisfying, and we were particularly happy with its location on a quiet country road overlooking Castellana Grotte, as well as with the state of our room - clean and refurbished at good standards.

This B&B was great! It combines the comfort of sleeping in a fancy hotel with the cosiness and friendliness of sleeping with your grandmother. The beds are great, the rooms (or at least the one i've been in) look fantastic and thanks to the airconditioning you sleep tight. After the good sleep you get a big breakfast buffet where the...
