Can't argue with Gian, it is indeed a fantastico appartamento.
Gian welcomed us in person, and had stocked the apartment for us with bottles of water, cartons of fruit juice, a bowl of fruit and a huge pile of croissants and cakes. We were late and had obviously made Gian late for another appointment but nonetheless he was warm and helpful.
The apartment is modern and part of a small modern complex. It's bright, spacious, clean and with all modern fixtures and fittings including all the appliances you could need (except WiFi, which was the only potential improvement we could think of).
The only issue really is the noisy road but, hey, it's Italy: if you want to avoid scooter noise you'll need to stay in a mountain refuge!
It's a few minutes' walk from the town by the shortest route, which is not obvious, so here's a crib sheet: directly on the other side of the road is a house, and to the left of this is a steep concrete ramp. Go down this (only about 4 metres) and at the bottom, on the left, a concrete staircase/path leads down into a car park. Go directly down the car park to pick up the continuation of the staircase/path, now signed "centro". Exit onto the road alongside the railway line. A few paces to the right, cross the railway by the footbridge. You are now in the town centre. Be warned, the way is ramshackle, dirty, poorly-lit and beset by barking dogs (all safely behind fences). Just remind yourself you are in Italy, and take a torch if intending to be out after dark!
