WOW! WOW! WOW! Pictures don't do this Villa justice.
We rented the VIP Suite for 2 weeks in July (5 adults and 3 kids) and we could not have been happier. The apartment was well laid out and everything we needed was on hand. Kitchen was nicely stocked with appliances, the bathroom included a large bath tub/shower and most importantly, the technical connections part of the apartment was the best.
The Wifi was more than adequate along even the technical geeks with us downloading movies and playing Minecraft. The TV, DVD Player, Satellite Systems kept all the kids and adult kids occupied. Mauro even had DVDs (in English) for extra choices.
Bedrooms were large and comfortable and the one bedroom without the AC really didn't even need AC. Lots of storage space and even more TVs in the bedrooms.
The Pool and the BBQ were great accessories to the villa.
Mauro and Stefano took good care of us. They were available anytime via phone and text. My husband and I wanted to go to Cinque Terre and Mauro was able to find us an apartment so we could spend a good day and a half in that area.
If I could, I would give Villa il Poggiolo 7 stars! Mauro was washing his car one day and took the time to wash both of our cars too - who would provide that level of service??
If you want to see the Liguria region, this is the place to be.
When you do get here, follow all of Mauro's recommendations for sights to see and places to eat.
