Hate to make you too jealous but this is actually the view from the terrace outside our bedroom door. Unbelievable!! We look out onto the Bay of Trentova, beautiful green hills around us, it’s so perfect. We’re staying at a B&B run by a really nice and English speaking couple, Adriana and Oreste, with a little two year old girl Alissa. They have been great to us and we’ve been able to talk with them a lot and learn about the area and just have a good time.
Funny story about trying to get here. We got to Agropoli and Beth had directions from Google maps. We did our best to follow the streets, which is really challenging because street signs are optional and were going in circles. So, we started asking people in our version of Italian….”Scussi, dove Bai di Trentova” (where is Bai di Trentova?) Everybody knew where it was and was happy to direct us, only we could never find the bed and breakfast. Later, after some kind soul in a furniture store called the B&B and got Oreste to come down and rescue us, we found out that the the B&B is named after the body of water at the foot of the town…..the Bai di Trentova. We were of course being directed there by the locals. Pretty tricky for the out of towners.
The B&B is Oreste’s family’s house which he converted into the lodging about 4 years ago. He did an amazing job as you can see. He built the terraces on the upper level and did all the tile work on the terraces on the main level and finished the rooms and so on. It’s just a beautiful place and everything is clean and new in a beautiful older structure…best of both worlds.
Adriana handles a lot of the reservations and client contact…and speaks fluent English. Oreste is an incredible cook. They provide dinner on request, full multi-course meals that have been fantastic. Literally, the best food we have eaten here has come from their kitchen. They are so friendly and helpful, it’s been a total pleasure. It’s a real family affair too, Oreste’s mom cleans rooms everyday, his brother helps out with landscaping and his dad is here everyday.
We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone, you couldn’t do better.
