I don't usually rate these things but I had to for this one. We had thoroughly enjoyable stay at maras apartment. Her brother was there upon our arrival and showed us around the apartment and then the area. He bought us a drink at a near by cafe and spoke perfect English (better than me). His sister was Mariantonietta was very gracious and welcoming. The apartment was clean and in a good location out of the city center and with a nice market nearby and a great ice cream shop. The only thing wrong with it was the hot water heater had to be primed a bit before getting hot. If you take a taxi from the airport or train station make sure the driver knows the correct street (via Cocchi) because our driver took us to Via Locchi) about 2-3 kilometers away and we had to walk with our bags to the correct address.
