Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a super time in La Pianella! There were 14 of us for the week, which essentially was my husbands mum and dad, 2 brothers, sisters in law and kids. My sister and 3 of her kids joined us for 2 nights so we had a full compliment of 18 those days! We all absolutely loved the house. The space was fantastic and worked really well for us. The fact that the bedrooms were located in different areas around the house was also ideal and we were able to allocate them really suitably between families/little kids/bigger kids etc which worked well for bedtimes/noise etc. Thanks so much for the room plan you provided in advance and apologies for all the trouble your friend went to do it, but it turned out to be invaluable as we had a much better sense of layout and could plan the room allocations much better before we got there and avert any difficulties!
The pool and area around it are spectacular! We were all stunned by its size and really loved it and spent most of our time up there. While the steps up were possibly initially a bit daunting we all got very good at them and even granny, grandad and all the kids were fine on them (bar the baby and the hill was a bit of a struggle with the pram but we managed!).
We had Donatella and Sonia come in 4 of the evenings which was fantastic. They are both so lovely and a pleasure to be around. It was lovely also to experience real local cuisine and such a treat to essentially be waited on and not have to do the wash-up afterwards! The other nights we cooked (once!), BBQ'd and did the pizza thing (which was great fun but we will never get jobs in pizzerias!).
Tina and Enzo were also both lovely and looked after the house, gardens and pool very well.
We had great fun with the tennis and ping pong and ran a few challenges which kept us entertaining before dinner most evenings!
All in all we had a super time and one which will be remembered for many years to come.
