The photo's showed a modern villa with wide open spaces and that was exactly what we found, everything was in great order. Both bedrooms were well furnished with superb bathrooms and showers, the kitchen had all expected items but would benefit from some extra cooking knives (one supplied). The pool was an excellent addition that we used allot more than we expected too, it's compact but great for cooling off after a hot day. By far the best part of the let was Mr Frassati himself, nothing was too much trouble and we did have a couple of problems connecting to the wifi, he was there within the hour to help sort it out. We couldn't have asked for any more effort or a more pleasant host. If you're looking for a peaceful, quiet villa with access to both the mountains and the coast you would be hard pressed to find better. Highly recommended!

We had a lovely time, the village has everything you would need, a bakery and butchers a two minute walk away ano two mini mart shops. Boat trips go form the quay and there are numerous restaurants. The apartment was modern and very well equipped, the air conditioning was very useful. The pool area is beautiful and everything is well maintained. The owners live above the apartment which is useful, they were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend highly.

The villa was beautifully furnished and provided everything we needed.The pool was heated, which made it possible for us to swim in the evening The loctation was idyllic - within walking distance of local amenities, yet rural, private and secluded, but the nicest aspect of this family style villa is the sense of peace, privacy and relaxation you get as soon as you arrive, sitting out having breakfast on the glorious terrace and enjoying the stunning views of the surrounding mountains. The hosts have put together a fantastic guide book with lots of ideas for places to visit and local restaurants
