The photos of this apartment do not quite do it justice! It's very comfortably fitted out and the large balcony gives wonderful views over the roof tops and the network of small alleyways. While relaxing on the balcony, it's very pleasant to hear locals chatting among themselves while preparing their meals outside. Although it's a fairly steep climb up to the apartment, it's enjoyable nevertheless because you meander through alleyways lined with flowers and plants and you get very friendly greetings from the locals along the way. The kitchen was very well equipped, an added bonus for us as we enjoy cooking. The bedroom had a good king size bed and the bathrooms were good with lots of hot water and a good shower. The owner gave us good directions for finding the apartment and very helpfully allowed us to arrive late in the evening. We would highly recommend La Sostra di Minerva as an excellent place to stay and relax in and we definitely hope to return next year.
